I was informed that when you receive a serial #D sports card and the serial number matched the players jersey number, it is a 1-of-a-kind or 1 of 1 or 1/1. How would you appraise it?

If that guy told you it's one of a kind and it's a one of one then he's an ebay seller not a collector. Any collector would tell you it's not a one of one unless it says 1/1. There are loads of crappy sellers that sell cards they say are one of one because either it's his jersey number, first or last in series, or any freaky weird mathematical representation they can think of to say it's one of one so some sap can pay more for the card. Sell it as his jersey number but don't say it's a 1/1 it just makes you look stupid.

Some reason people think that a card #'d out of the players jersey number is supposed to be worth more or is special in some way.
Technically according to ebay every single numbered card is a 1/1 because there is only 1 of that specific number for instance ( # 150 ) etc... It's just a way for the scalpers to get more money by trying to fool those who are less knowledgeable.

Actually people do put a higher premium on s/n cards that have the players number on it. It's the same reason why some cards are worth more than others. It's supply and demand. It also depends on what the card is worth to that individual. BV is just a guide, but people should go buy sell value because that's what really counts, lol.
