...I've been collecting cards for nearly 30 years, and i'm sure i'm spitting into the wind here but can some please give me a valid reason why Derek Jeter rookie cards are so disproportionate?
Amount released (quantity), versus price.
In general, but more importantly his Little Sun rookie card vs. his Signature Rookies Mail-In Promo card.
There were 3000 of each released but for some reason, Little Sun card prices are out of this world.
Little Sun features terrible seafoam green, pink, and other clashing colors, with a mock 1987 wooden bat-style edge design, and an exact copy pose of his 1992 Classic Draft Picks card.
While the Signature Rookies Mail-In Promo card features normal colors and design with an original FULL, unobstructed action pose. and it goes without saying, Signature Rookies was more difficult to obtain.
The fact that 3000 were printed DOES NOT mean 3000 were distributed back then by mail-in requests! actually, the amount in circulation is far less from what i hear..only adding to the pricing confusion.
Am i missing something? the numbers just don't seem to make sense so i'm hoping for a reasonable, intelligent conclusion.
Why even in the US, we dont find any commercial solution for storing worldwide famous panini stickers ?
Only unapropriate plastic bags intended for other products, over sized or bad formats ( baseball cards, etc ... ) ?
Here is my modest contribution :
What a big market loss for storage solution providers ! Get the engineers from Apple !
I just started selling again, and I accept best offers. Well, one person gave me an offer and I accepted, but I didn't look carefully enough and his offer was for his price with free shipping, which I don't do. After arguing for a little while, I gave in. Problem: How do I make the item free shipping? I sent him an invoice where I took shipping charges off the total price. Is this the proper way to do so?
