There is no question at least in my mind its the only place were pricing research is being done anymore. If beckett were smart they'd try and corner the market and sign some sort of rights to completed auctions on ebay because if they're pricing is going to go strictly off that people who use that sort of pricing already get it free of charge. However if you take that from them you'd definitely get a huge bump back in the amount of people subscribing to their price guide. Personally I hate it but it is what it is. I think its beckett trying to play catch up and the mass BV down arrows gives collector's BV shock.
