Theres a couple of BCCG 10s on ebay, but they look nowhere near as nice as the beckett 9.5 with subgrades that sold yesterday.
Quote:The prices people are asking on eBay are insane. VCP avg for the Shaq in 9.5 is around 200 and they are asking 150 or more for 9s. Something about that set has people asking way over the average price.

RGIII and Luck Cards are made out of the same cardboard as Michael Floyd cards, but collectors are paying 4-10 times the prices for the cards.
I just sold a $20 BV reggie Miller card for $50 cash to some guy in China. Kobe Refractors and Short print cards sell crazy over book on ebay all the time. One of his 90's refractors sold for $333 a few weeks back. That is over 2X the BV of $150. But there are 5 million Kobe collectors and only 150 of those cards.

A lot of dealers will send in bulk orders BCCG because the rates are lower. I feel BGS is a better service. I was bidding on a BGS 9.5 Shaq last night and lost it in the last seconds for $1. Went for $163. Seriously bummed.
