SMR prices aren't even close to what you can buy the cards for. SMR lists 1954 Topps Aaron rookie in PSA 5 at $715, and that is about $100 less than what you could actually get one for. I also subscribe to All-Star Cards Monthly, and they raised their prices about 3 months ago for the most popular vintage cards they are buying, Aaron, Mays, Clemente, Mantle, Robinson, etc.
I know the stuff I have bought over the last 3 years on eBay are great deals compared to what they are going for now. Check out my son's (and mine) collection at djshouseofcards-comics.com to get an idea of the 1950s and 1960s cards we have largely purchased in the last 3 years. Glad I got them when I did!!!

There was just an unopened vendor box of that at the Twin Cities Sports Collectibles Club auction on Saturday. Wish I would have bought it! It went for very low price!!!
