UPDATE: Shawn Kemp autographs. Unreal hype?
UPDATE: The seller on the $132.50 Mystique autograph listed the card again at $99.99 OBO, and it sold for $70.00 yesterday.
Here is an update, regarding Shawn Kemp autographs. The part about Panini making Kemp autographs is news to me, so I thought I’d share this info, as posted by Gio, from Freedomcardboard.com. Thanks for the info, Gio.
“Yes, Kemp as been selling very well, but not all the bids are legit. I would say they have been selling consistantly for $40 to $60, but for example, this $130 price tag is a bunch of bull as many of the higher prices are…. Heres an example ——-> http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi … &viewitem=
Sells it for “$130″ and then relists it for $99 BIN. Heres the listing for the same card for $99 —-> http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi … 0578544647
And here is the bidding history of the first $130 auction ——> http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? … 0644125848
As you can see in the bidding, it jumps from $50 to $130 and then $132.50………….. $50 to $132.50 is a small and normal jump………………….
IMO, this is a case of taking the real hype of Kemp autos, which are around $40 to $60 as I have been watching him for a while, and usually when a guy sells consistant like that at a pretty cool price, people tend to get carried away with fake bids and then relisting just to try and get an extra 40 to 50 bucks from its normal price.
And you know why people are dumping their Kemp autos all of a sudden right? Because Panini came out with a few already, but redemptions, so once they come out and more keep coming from Panini then they will all go down like everything else always does when they start to flood the market.
So if you have a Kemp auto now would be the time to dump it if you wanna get a legit $40 to $60, or maybe you might get lucky and somebody would fall for the hype like usual and you might even get $100+ you just never know.”
