Pricing question...

Pricing question...
This isn't about specific cards its just the OPG in general. Have you guys ever seen a price for a card drop by more than half in a matter of maybe 2-3 days? I'm talking about a card that carried a BV of 100 dropping to 50 seemingly over night. I had that happen to me and I'm wondering if it was a mistake or if a card can truely tank like that.

a lot more, actually

saw a josh barfield card this year drop from 50 to 8
saw an entire set - basketball 1995-96 finest test border refractors drop at least 60% - shaq went from 1000 to 250
hockey: yzerman 1995-96 collectors choice platinum player's club went from 100 to 30

so yea, it is definitely possible, and can even happen to the best in the hobby (i know a jordan cardslast year than dropped from 10 to 5, and one jordan that dropped 2500 to 1000

Hmmm, it's the first time I ever saw it happen for myself. It's a very new prospect auto that I got in trade, I'm not mad that the price dropped right after I traded for it since its going into my PC, I'm just a little shocked it just fell out like that lol.

I just had a 2012 Bowman Chrome auto drop from 80 to 50 in a week. Do they have somewhere that lists biggest gainers/losers? That would be interesting.

RE: Pricing question...
Who is the prospect who dropped so much? I look at ebay sales after looking at book value to get a better feel for what people are paying.

RE: Pricing question...
The card that I have is a 2012 Bowman Chrome Shawon Dunston Jr. Gold refractor auto. It lost half it's value from the time I accepted the trade to the time it landed in my mailbox lol. Like I said the value of it isn't a big deal because I won't be getting rid of it, it just caught me by surprise. If the trade would have happened 3 days later I wouldn't have had to give up as much in trade. Oh well.

RE: Pricing question...
Seems odd it dropped that much value in a few days. Have you checked it again?

Edit: Just looked and thats crazy it went down. Wonder what happened..

RE: Pricing question...
Well he is young just out of HS. I found a recent article on him.http://throughthefencebaseball.com/chicago-cubs-prospect-watch-shawon-dunston-jr/16281/
He could go back up when spring training rolls around. Bowman Chrome this year is not near as good as last year but who knows.
