Many collectors tend to be buyers and sellers, tracking the hobby marketplace in an effort to build our personal collections to the max.

You pull a good card of a player who you share no personal connection with. But it’s a card you know could bring in cash to help you get what you want.

However, the key is knowing when to sell the card for maximum value. Buying and selling is a lot like the stock market. Buy low, sell high, and have a bit of luck on your side.

Collectors sitting on Nick Foles cards are pondering the buy-sell decision right now.

Here are factors to consider.

1. He’s the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.
2. Foles led the league this week with 381 passing yards.
3. He has shown potential to be a good NFL quarterback.

1. Despite constant hype, the Eagles have not been able to get out of a rut.
2. He’s been sacked 14 times in five games, which could lead to injury.
3. Potential changes to the Eagles staff in the offseason could affect his development.

When it comes to rookie quarterbacks in the league, Foles isn’t higher on the list because of Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden and Russell Wilson – first- and second-tier players that brought hype with them.

Foles has been able to fly under the radar for a while, but with the type of week he had in Philadelphia’s 23-21 win over Tampa Bay, he was able to get some media attention.

Most of his cards have seemingly doubled in price since the start of the season.

But does that mean it’s time to sell his cards?

What do you think? Is it time to sell your Nick Foles cards, or are you buying more for another jump in value?

    If selling them meant you were making money, then sell them!

    Sell. One game doesn’t make a QB. Especially when you’re playing a team with the equal skill of your neighborhood peewee team. Anyone can throw for 300 yards against a weak defensive team and 50 attempts registered. His first few games is more of a gauge of his talent than his last game.

    Lol the Pos and Cons are really funny. A change in coach wont set in back one bit.

    Pros: He will have one of the best skill position groups in the nfl.

    Cons: Andy Reid makes average quarterbacks useful, he probably won’t be around next year. Kevin Kolb put up some monster numbers in limited duty with the Eagles, he’s been pretty bad in Arizona with Larry Fitzgerald. Foles isn’t that much better than Kolb or Mike Kafka (who they cut).

    The only reason I would buy any of his stuff would be in the hopes that all the talent the Eagles have comes together next year. I honestly think 5 years from now Philly fans will miss the days of Andy Reid, so I would sell if I was able to get good prices.

    Sell! Are you kidding? The entire roster is about to through a major roster change. Andy Reid is most likely gone. If his cards have doubled, now is the time to get out!

    Hoard then til next year….no notable QB’s coming out of College next year & all the other Rookies from this year are at thier max. Next year under a new coach, Nick will explode (see Mike Trout…until May/June, most of his cards went for a song and a dance).

    My advice in this situation would be to sell all your Nick Foles cards to me for a penny each.
