I recently saw a post on Blowoutcards, from the dumbass that is SportsItUpCards, Gio. He is asking other collectors their opinion of the sale of a 1997 Ultra Platinum Medallion 98 Greats.
He fails to mention anywhere that the real reason he is asking about the card is that he owns one and probably is trying to gauge current market value to eventually sell.
Personally, I find nothing wrong with the technique of discussing a card (to gain attention to it) and subsequently listing it on ebay. It’s good salesmanship.
However, seeing as how the source is Gio, it is extremely ironic, since he is so quick to condemn others when they do the same thing.
Here is his post, via OzCardTrader. Coincidentally, he has already removed the picture of the back of the card, so as not to share he serial #.
1997 SPx Grande Finale /50 $4,338.78 3/31/13
I saw this recently and this is the highest I think I have seen it for. Admittedly, I haven’t tracked Jordan cards much lately though.
This exact card was previously listed in early March and ended at $4,700+. It was listed by the same seller that sold this, so we’ll see if this holds up or is re-listed again.
The seller is jchicago.
SportsItUpCards, you are a clown. Go fuck yourself, Giovanni Azzarelli. Keep my name out of your mouth.
SMH, SMH, SMH.
I’ll be posting more regularly here once again. Jordan sales, talk etc.
Here’s a custom card I created of the two hottest things in the hobby, 2012.
Here’s the extraordinary, Giovanni, aka Sportsitupcards. He thinks Michael Jordan 90’s inserts should be worth what they were selling for, four years ago. And he likes Panini’s Silhouettes.
Someone give this man a cookie.
So, I’m on my way to San Francisco for the Tri Star show at the Cow Palace. I haven’t been to a show in years. I’m pretty excited.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted, though I am still screencapping sales consistently. Here’s a Michael Jordan 1997 Metal Precious Metal Gems Red /100 that was recently sold for nearly $14,000 on ebay. Six different bidders put in a bid over $10,000.
