I would be interested in some of those....but not here man...

Take a look on the EBAY dark side and you'll get any of those (except the crosby) for 50% less than the asking prices, or even more...

Ebay is fun, but it as killed the buisness with so much low prices.

The prices are not that outrageous if you take into account the print runs these days. Sure 80$ for a Latendresse rookie seems like a lot but there are only 999 of them. There are probably at least 5 times as many good Gretzky rookies out there.

Back in the day you could get 2-3 gretzky's in a single box, and today you'd be luck to get a Latendresse in a whole case. Like someone mentioned above things have changed drastically.

Seems ridiculous that Gui's rookie card can be worth as much as an Yzerman, Messier, etc, but there are at least 10,000 of those 2 still out there compared to a MAX of 999 for Gui cause Im sure some are still in packs somewhere. Don't bash the guy, he's just posting what the market says they are worth.

But there are hundred players like Latendresse, and only one Gretzky.

Sure, a die hard habs fan may want Latendresse and be ready to overpay for his card, but as someone else said, just take a look on ebay...

Sport cards are generally a bad investment.

Ouch, I think Wade just took out any hopes you had for selling those cards. Personally, I don't know much about it, but you seem to be asking a lot of money for rookie cards of players that are still rookies. Anyway.

Absolutely, find ant of these cards on eBay, and they will cost about 15% to 20% the price you're asking.

Just one question here: if she 'understands'... and you 'always told her No'... WHY does she keep on asking you?

Sorry but i dont like ebay, altough price seem nice, old hardcore fan, and maybe for you guys (computers compatible) it might be a rip off, but go to a card store, its sold at beckett price... and its the way i do it..

I sell the cards not because i am getting married, but dont have place to store them anymore, and wont have time to spend on this hobby anymore I will keep 1 ovechkin rc, 1 crosby rc and 1 malkin rc... other than this... no much.. Maybe 1 kopitar rc as well.

I not trying to rip off anyone, just offering better than the stores... thats all...

lol actually, its a matter of proportions.. I can probably say i dont have space to waste.. (if you would know how many basic cards i have its incredible.. and my good cards (5-20$ in beckett) are now... undesirable cards.. so.. i dont wanna keep all this.. so.. its basically to remove the addiction from my mind.. and keep only 1 of each mega star.. Crosby and Ovechkin... actually Kopitar shouldnt be there too (in reference to a previous reply)

I wonder how much money i spend.. i remember in 96-97 buying packs like crazy to get Joe Thornton RC at the time the card was booked at 6$ IMAGINE... the pack roughly costed the same price.. what a jack.. lol.. now its worth 15$ but.. its not a lot.. hehe the worst is i think i got 2 in the same pack... after all my money was spend.. hahaha, i remember also a box of upper deck 1999-2000.. i think.. I got both Pavel Brendl and Milan Kraft rookies!!! they where listed at 25$, now they are worth... nada... damn.. I was young and poor thats the worst.. but that okay.. i liked my cards at the moment and it satiesfied me.. i guess its all i needed..

ahhhh the memories..

OT- Collecting Hockey Cards - Getting started

Hi Folks,

After years of hockey passion, i've decided to go to the next level : collect hockey cards.

But after ordering a few boxes , i've come to realize i had a few problems :

1- I'm french, and i don't know a single person in this country that collects Hockey cards, making it difficult to buy/exchange... (i made my first order in an american store via internet)

2-I don't have a clue as to prices and that kind of stuff. I know what the Beckett is ( i also collected basketball cards back in the day), but i don't have it and i would prefer to have the opinion of people who know what the "real" prices are.

Which brings me to my questions :

1- Are there any french fans that collect that kind of stuff here?

2- Is there anyone who could help me get started in this stuff?

Thanks,

Gardak

P.s : i browsed the forum, but i thought it would be best to start a new topic because my questions were specific. Thanks for reading

There is a swedish/french hockeycard forum, here you can find plenty of french collectors and get help.

http://www.hockeykort.se/forum/index.php

Beckett has an online price guide, which costs about 4 dollars per month and is a great tool to get values of your cards. Best of luck with the collecting
