SCN Highlights Sept 5
Much bettter report this week IMHO
Friday, September 5, 2008
Here is what's going on in the Market this week:
We have a bunch of new releases this week but nothing to get too excited about. The only product that has a shot at moving up will be the 2007/08 Topps Letterman Basketball. There are only 481 of the 8 box Cases and 457 of the 4 box Cases produced. It is the 1st time Topps has numbered the cases which is similar to what UD did earlier in the year with Premier Basketball and Rookie Threads Basketball. The low numbering and the addition of the 2008/09 Rookie Class Letterman Cards and Autos should keep this one at current levels or could even run up depending on how the early breaks look. The rest of the releases this week are just weak.
Here is the rest of the market:
Football is finally here and this may be the much needed spark collectors are looking for. It's rare to see any rookies break out in the first few weeks but you may see some guys from the 2005, 2006 and 2007 Rookie classes mature early on. It will be fun to watch this weekend. As for the card market, lots of mediocre products coming out and on the horizon. The few standouts that we are seeing early action on are: 2008 Donruss Threads Baseball, 2008 Razor Oval Office and Encore edition, 2008/09 UD Black Hockey, 2008 Bowman Chrome Football.
New info has just hit also this week for 2008 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Baseball which is a 12 box Case this year rather than a 10 box case in previous years.
As for live products, there are very few standouts but 2008 UD Icons Football is a clear winner in a tough market. The breaks continue to keep collectors coming back. Also doing well is 2008 Topps Chrome Football. This should continue to creep up slowly during the season. 2008 Topps Triple Threads Baseball looks like it has bottomed out and starting to dry up. Give it another 3 weeks and we should start to see some movement upwards. Other than that, there is nothing else moving higher this week.
That is it for this week SPORTSCARDNATION ! As we close, we'll give you 1 pick each week that we think will move up in price. Next week, we will look back on it to check how we did.
LAST WEEKS PICK:
Last weeks pick was 2008 UD Icons Football. Product was trading around $875-$900. This week, it is still in the same range but has not moved down. We at SCN think that this will pop higher in the next few weeks.
THIS WEEKS PICK:
2007/08 OPC Premier Hockey. This one may not move up right away but put it away for a few months and this will be a much higher case than where it is now in the $1200 range. The content is on par with many of the pulls out of The Cup Hockey but at a much better price point. Those who have opened this product can attest to its value break for a high end product.
