Is there justified skittishness about the sports card market? Or is the noticeable drop of values during October an over-reaction from buyers who overpaid for a quick flip during the worst time to buy? We think October will go down as one of those great “learning months” in the market. This month, SlabStox digs in and gets a sense of where the market is, where it is going and what we should learn from it.
Here’s what we're talking about in this October look back at the sports card market:
- Take 1: Why rare card oversupply has led to BIG losses
- Take 2: Baseball’s playoffs: Harper vs. Judge
- Take 3: Basketball and hockey are BACK
- Take 4: Glance at the Market
- Take 5: Who’s Hot / Who’s Not
- Looking ahead: Shows, product releases and a Final Word
