Why are new sets N/A for pricing for so long?

RE: Why are new sets N/A for pricing for so long?
Looking back at prior year prices, even on the SP will give you a great idea of what this years will look like. Now rookies, low serial numbered and prospects are a different story but you can quickly look-up current selling/asking prices if you are in that much of a hurry. As stated before.....sell as soon as product comes out, before buying settels down.

IMO BV sb used only as a general guide and most use it as thier trade basis. I use 40% of BV when buying as my limit unless it's something I really want. Harper $50 sp mentioned above is a crazy price. 40% is $25 which in my mind is reasonable if you really want it. Got $30 for mine which cost me $0.11....I'm happy.

Try to look at it this way, ignore the fact that it is "money." Look at it as a scale for trading. If you want a $5 dollar card from me, it would be fair (in most eyes) for me to request 5 $1 cards, or the reverse.

But, you proved to be a little more intelligent than someone with a mental disability on the second sentence by displaying that huge vocabulary improvement with the word brevity in it. Good job! No more window licking for you anymore, your a big kid now!

Don't worry Jacoby...I'm sure he will realize sooner or later to appreciate the dry sarcastic humour of your posts we all love (well at least I love).

Other than Beckett's new appraisal service, I don't recall them ever just slapping a single value on something.
