Like for instance the 1996-97 Topps Chrome Refractor. I am really seeking out this card, and the book value is $200 the last I have seen, and the cheapest one ungraded on E-Bay is $1500. Give me a break, that is overkill if I have ever seen it. I can see paying extra for low pop 9.5's or really scarce cards but some of these E-bay prices are ridiculous. Let me know. I need some of the tougher inserts, like the Takeit2.net, the hot shots die-cut, big men on court, thrill seekers 96, Skybox 3d's, Noyz Boyz, Row 0, etc. but I would much rather not pay over book or right at book unless its graded good or absolutely impossible to locate. I would have to raise funds as I am not rich, but if prices are right, I can work right away. let me know and thanks for responding.

I am not in the MJ insert market but all of these cards typically sell above BV, don't they? I mean asking someone to take less for something they could get more for is....the inverse of capitalism, isn't it? I know the MJ collectors on this site work very well together but I would imagine that at one point or another they were involved in auctions where they were head-to-head against buddies of their own.
To call the prices ridiculous is almost knocking the market. I mean, if you collect MJ you KNOW you will have to cough up some bucks for the tougher to get inserts. I don't know. I am just baffled by this. As for the $550 on the BMOC, that's a great deal.
