This summer saw unprecedented price spikes for vintage but they seem to be coming back down to earth. So was this just a buyers group gone mad?

Looks like there's only a limited number of ultra high grade HOF Rookies out there and once the high rollers bought them out that left only the lower grade scraps for the rest of us poor folks to afford.

Good point but I sure do like low grade high eye appeal!

As far as football, I'd say the Namath rookie is doing well.

I would agree 65 Namath is an iconic card

Methinks a bunch of greedy assholes looking to artificially inflate prices.  Looks like it backfired.

I started collecting the 1975 Topps set at the beginning of the year.  I've noticed a pretty big drop in the prices of cards graded PSA 9 from where they sold just 12 months ago, especially the Brett and Yount rookies and the Nolan Ryan card.  So maybe it's more than merely the low POP HOF rookies.

There are a handful of us actively trying to build the set in PSA 10, and I see bidding wars for cards from time to time from the same folks that don't have that particular card in PSA 10, especially where the total grade 10 POP is 4 or lower.  I know when I have to be aggressive a few seconds before an auction ends because these other collectors are showing their inventory in the PSA set registry, and why my inventory is hidden.  Overall however, I believe even the commons in PSA 10 are selling at lower prices than a year ago.

Jay you are correct the registry is a powerful drug. I also keep my collection hidden. Smart move and welcome to the Board.

I can kind of see the logic in that, but others intentionally expose their sets in the hopes that it will attract the cards they need. I guess it all depends on how fierce the competition is for a given set.

And while I do understand the motivation for keeping sets private, I must say the registry would be a lot less fun if everyone did that.

That's a great point and I agree.
