Topps Olympic Auto Prices
 
Are insane lately....anyone checkout the completed auctions...damn! :eek:

pnft17 06-30-2012 10:39 PM

Who has been blowing up? any surprises

messier2 06-30-2012 10:41 PM

Everyone that qualified for the Olympics and are in contention for a medal are hot!

marlinsfan9108 06-30-2012 10:45 PM

Ya when the product first came out, I thought I overspent on Missy Franklin autos when I paid $30. Just sold one for $215. With that said, I'm still buying if anyone wants to sell

PalmTree 07-01-2012 05:14 AM

I didn't expect Missy's autos to go up so fast. :eek:

And she still has the chance to qualify in her signature event on Sunday (200m back). If she gets that, she'll be swimming in seven events in London. :eek: :)! :flex:

Looks like we'll see our first price drops on Liukin and Sacramone autos (among others).

Both are actually pretty easy on the eyes so that sucks from a viewership point of view!

I was hemming and hawing saturday night on picking up 2 Aly Raisman autos for $50 each...decided to try and get one by bidding, max on one at $40...well, lost the 2 BIN and the one I was bidding on ended at $51...kicking myself since she did make the team....

Yeah, I got lucky that I didn't pickup and Liukin or Sacramone autos. Aly WAS my girl cause her prices were cheap compared to her talent but alas, prices doubled overnight! :(

I'm glad I was able to pickup the $24.99 BIN on her auto the other night!

Dacubs 07-02-2012 10:10 AM

Yeah, I got a good price on a sacramone a few weeks ago, gonna see what happens with the prices, but it wouldn't be so bad to just keep it at the price I got it for

messier2 07-02-2012 10:18 AM

Missy Franklin and Ryan Lochte auto prices are INSANE! Holy cow...

Fraser9698 07-02-2012 10:27 AM

Is there any room for more growth here? This is crazy, i just cant see them going up much further.

PalmTree 07-02-2012 10:31 AM

I think the some of the non-Olympians will still hold most of their value. Former medalists like Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin probably will get picked up by NBC as commentators. Having face time on TV as well as their previous Olympic highlights being re-broadcast should keep them in the forefront of people's minds.

As popular as the trials were, I'm sure that there were a ton of people who had no idea they were going on. Viewership of the actual Olympics will dwarf that of the trials, as casual sports fans and non sports fans tune in.

Plus, people are known to do crazy things with their money when a gold medal (or a championship) is on the line. ;)

messier2 07-02-2012 10:47 AM

I'm just going to start going for the "second tier" autos and let the crazy people bid up the "top guys". I'm sure once those second tier guys/gals wins some medals, they will be up there as well!

marlinsfan9108 07-02-2012 11:37 AM

I still think there is room for growth. Like others have said, the Olympics is one of the most watched sporting events and everyone wants a piece of the action if the USA or an athlete does well. Even if everyone dumps off their autos at the same time, there are going to be way more buyers out there. Plus its not like the print run of the autos is that high or so it seems. I have a case incoming this week. Hopefully I get lucky

Would you guys sit on hobby boxes of this or rip and flip? Case prices jumped about $100 in the last week or so, I imagine it will dry up and jump again in 2-3 weeks.

tajikey 07-02-2012 02:47 PM

Out of the three or four packs I opened, I pulled a Jerome Singleton auto. Apparently, Paralympics participants aren't experiencing the same luxury...

messier2 07-02-2012 05:05 PM

I searched on ebay completed auctions for Missy Franklin Olympic autos and got sick to my stomach seeing ones that ended in May...oh if I only knew...wow...the % profit would have been amazing!

marlinsfan9108 07-02-2012 05:14 PM

I knew and I still didn't buy enough. Not complaining, I'll still make my share

IndySportsCards 07-02-2012 05:18 PM

I bought a case of this stuff 2 months ago when it came out and have made a killing with it. Even base cards are selling well.

goldenegg1 07-02-2012 06:13 PM

Kicking myself in the junk for selling Lochte last week for $100

BillInDallas 07-02-2012 07:12 PM

I was excited a month and change ago when I pulled Liukin from a box. After that faceplant into the mat, not so much. Hitting Lezak, Jenner, and Bausch was cool though.

I still think there's room for some profit, even at the prices cases are going for now.

messier2 07-02-2012 08:45 PM

So, be honest...who here is buying those Lochte and Franklin autos at $200 and $150+ respectively thinking there is still room to grow? As in...double in price+?

I'm hoping for something like this with my Shawn Johnson Gold Auto.

PalmTree 07-02-2012 09:00 PM

My guess is that NBC is going to play up the Wieber-Douglas rivalry as Johnson-Liukin Part II, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Johnson and Liukin get a LOT of camera time during the gymnastics broadcasts.
