Default My Olympic Auto and Relic Collection...

With the prices skyrocketing the way they are, it looks like I actually made a decent investment for once will probably start selling right after the Olympics start even though prices are pretty crazy right now. On second thought, I MIGHT have to start selling a few now lol
Best ones are probably the gold /15 Wieber and the silver /30 Lochte
Skipped out on the Phelps but regretting that now.
Good luck with you guys' sales that invested!

Very nice!

Just curious, is that mostly from boxes & packs, or from singles off eBay?

You can cash in on those Lochte's and Franklins, and the others aren't to shabby either! I have some Olympic cards that I'm saving till the games as well. I liked this product.

Default Where's the Aly Raisman autos?

Raisman is the other gymnast next to Weiber that made trails and will be competing during the Olympics. I see about five Weibers but zero Raismans.. I wonder if she's a short print. Is it possible that you've already moved them?

Either way, nice pulls!! You should have a lot of fun selling once the Olympics begin! GL!

The stuff keeps rising. I'd try to get these ones to auction-end near opening ceremonies. You will get more of an average rather than waiting for the medals to be delt...or let it ride and hope for a lot of gold medals of your better autos!

I just got this Shawn Johnson relic off ebay. 2012 Topps Olympic Shawn Johnson SILVER 2 COLOR Relic Patch /50 | eBay I'm picking it up later and want to take a one touch magnet holder to put it in. I got some holders before, but had the cards with me to get the right size. I thought this would be a good thread to ask someone what size this would best fit in.

I think this is a good idea. It is a big gamble on a few of these if they don't win gold. The prices they are at now people are assuming they are going to win gold.

Amazing collection! Franklin and Lochte are gonna kill it and Wieber ought to be the favorite as well (too bad no Gabby Douglas in this product though!).

I have quite a few Olympic items on COMC and I just threw them up there with some, ahem, slightly inflated prices, lol. I have a feeling that right after the Opening Ceremonies might be a really good time to sell (when Olympic buzz is at its fever pitch), although it might be worth it to wait for the swimmers to get their first golds (they WILL get them) before listing.

Of course, I can't claim to be an expert and this is relatively uncharted territory in terms of the hobby itself. Whatever happens, good luck! You've got a mighty impressive collection
