collection value vs. beckett value
Can someone tell me what the collection value means towards the total value of the organizer. Which one should I pay attention beckett value or total collection value? Thanks.

Also collecting 1991 Topps Desert Shield PSA 9 or 10 Baseball cards.

RE: collection value vs. beckett value
beckett value is the value of the cards in baseline era condition*
total collection value is the value of the collection in the condition that you set it in

so, if you change a condition of a card to something that is different than the baseline era condition, it will change the total collection value

*baseline era condition:
1990-current = Mint
1980-1989 = Nmmt
1949-1979 = Nrmt
(and as far as i know, 1911-1948 is exmt)

RE: collection value vs. beckett value
also remember: when you add cards to your organize, it automatically is entered as mint. if the card you input is from before 1990, this will make the collection value higher than the beckett value. you have to change the condition of pre-1990 cards to their baseline era condition to have beckett value and collection value be the same

Thanks for the tips. If you have anymore you don't mind sharing, it would be much appreciated.

RE: collection value vs. beckett value
If I have a total collection value higher than the Beckett value did I do something wrong? Or is that a good thing?

I do believe that changed..when adding a card it is NrMt default now..
1990 and newer. I have been adding cards from the 60s and it NrMt default as well..
People who have not changed condition to NrMt for the newer cards in the last year have them listed as Mint..this changes the value in ORG and the trade value as well.
