There is also an old "in box" checklist that I had stored away from years back, it doesn't contain the Mullin auto in question from the SOTT Stars and Rookies set.
The oldest Beckett magazine I could find (2004) and that I happen to still have, has the Mullin listed as a different price. So, this card that does not appearently exist has actually fluctuated in price according to Beckett.
I am not saying that Beckett is ripping anyone off by this one discrepecy. I understand how many different cards that are listed in that database and some are going to be incorrect listings in some way.
Collectors pay for a guide and I just would love if Beckett had a forum to track the inconsistencies that members could report them to and action could be taken to change it. Bekcett has had most of the same listing errors in their database for a long time now. They should want to improve thier product.
I am missing the Drexler, the stockton trade card (he didn't sign), and of course the MJ auto.
I might track down another trade card of the MJ, the last one sold on ebay for close to $300 (almost as much as a cheaper MJ auto).
I can dream about having that MJ auto, can't I?
Thanks for the comments guys, appreciate it.

Beckett obtains checklists from the manufacturers and from the product (like how you get a checklist from Gold Standard, National Treasures, etc.). That's normally what they put in the database. Now, if they have redemptions for some of the cards, Beckett doesn't necessarily know that. They also aren't informed by the manufacturer if a card was never created/signed.
As for the prices, to my knowledge it's a mix between sales of like players in the set and similar products. Also, if there are redemption cards, those sales can go into the price as well. To my knowledge, there's no SET formula per se that is just on sales of that particular item. But I could be wrong.
