That is unfortunate but this might not be the best place to vent that frustration. The good thing, though, is that we don't care if you're new or not. If you have questions, someone will give you an answer. wink.gif

Wow, im speechless. I joined the forums over at Blow out cards and was posting questions. All i got were people being incredibly rude and condescending and acting like i was kind of a moron. Then they banned me. They didn't give me any reason.

What I dont understand is that they complain about newbies all day coming im and acting like they know it all. I go in there and respectfully ask questions so i can learn and they ban me!

Lol, no. I was looking through a sellers box, and he had stickers on the toploaders. Some stickers read RC with price.... Others stickers said FB with price, and the FB were more expensive. It seemed to me that there was a pattern - each FB card was the year after their rookie card (2nd year in the league)

Whats the best way to get an authentic autograph on card? Player special appearances? Mail the card to the player and request one?

I see a bunch of *hufe football card lots* for sale on Ebay. Should I spend the money on them or assume that the seller is savvy enough to comb through for RC/AU/GU and only sell commons?

What does SP mean?

QUOTE(bob_TCC @ May 22 2005, 10:33 AM)
This item came from from one of our new weekly features - Beckett Game Notes provided by Beckett Media.  Click here to read this week's article.

From the article:

Patriot's QB Tom Brady's top Rookie Card has moved up or down in price 16 times since it was first listed in the January 2001 issue of Beckett Football. At $800, it is one of the most valuable modern era base cards in existence. It doesn't feature an autograph or a jersey swatch, but it's part of a historically significant product - SP Authentic.

January 2001 - $30
December 2001 - $60
January 2002 - $125
February 2002 - $135
March 2002 - $175
September 2002 - $150
November 2002 - $175
December 2002 - $150
February 2004 - $200
March 2004 - $300
April 2004 - $350
June 2004 - $400
July 2004 - $425
November 2004 - $450
March 2005 - $750
April 2005 - $800

Very cool to see the history of the icard's value!  Put this data in a graph and make it available on a web site for lots of cards and that would be great.  wink.gif

So, does anyone here have a copy of this card?  If so, let's see a scan.

-Bob

Hello all!

Im getting back into collecting both for fun and for profit. Its been a long time since ive been active, and i've got alot of questions. I would appreciate any help you can offer, and please forgive my seeming ignorance.

First off, what is the best way to organize the cards? By team? By rookie cards? I know a lot collectors do very segregated by card company, year, etc.

By extension of the last question - what is more valuable... A complete years set, one company? Or single individuals rookie card or autograph?

Does a printed autograph have any value difference than a hand signed one?

What does it mean to break a box?

More questions to follow, and thanks for any help. Oh, and please break it down for me and explain amy abbreviations or trade- talk you might use PLEASE! I'm learning.

THANKS!
