The 80s and 90s were horrible for collecting.  Mass production killed it.  In the last few years however, scarcity has come into play.  Cards are manufactured as scarce, stamped with serial numbers - #/5, #/25, #/50, #/99 and so on - and with it, high prices!  Bring certified autographs into the mix and then you get cards like 2009 Mike Trout #/25 Auto selling for $5000 on ebay. 

So yeah, collecting is back.

To answer your question.  Yes, I have Puig Platinum's.  But I am not interested in selling a few individual cards.  I'd rather discuss selling lots of $500+, which would entail putting together an inventory list of players your interested in, as well as pictures.  I have up to $50k in cards to sell (the equivalent of $100k+ Becket prices.)   

I shared my Ebay id, to vouch for my reputation.  I thought it would be helpful.  I currently do not have any Ebay listings, because I'm interested in selling for bitcoin, not $usd.  Since this listing isn't generating any interest however, I'll turn back to selling on Ebay and find another way to convert to btc.

Thank you for your interest, but I'd rather not discuss single cards and selling at $5-$20 here on the board.  I have plenty of puigs, including platinum, bowman chrome, topps update and pro debut, short prints and super short prints.  I want to unload $500+ at a time, for bitcoin.  Look up my track record on ebay - 77garrys77

Escrow, for around 1%, seems like a no-brainer. 
10  Economy / Goods / Re: High end Baseball Cards - will accept btc on: May 13, 2013, 05:30:33 AM
For Baseball, the best product is Bowman Chrome.  Most popular, most liquid and great depth of prospects/rookies.  There some high end releases - Tribute, Triple Threads and Five Star by Topps.  And Panini/Treasures had an amazing release a couple months back - but they're still printing without license, so no logos, no team names, etc.  But the players are on board with Panini, just waiting for MLB to sign off.  When they do get licensed, they will take over as THE best release of the year.

I was out of the hobby for 15 years and just got back into it last year.  Harper and Trout got me interested again, and EBAY levels the playing field between buyers and sellers.  Much better environment than what it was 15+ years ago. 

If you're game, let me know what you're interested in, we can pick up dialogue.  Just pm me.

11  Economy / Goods / High end Baseball Cards - will accept btc on: May 13, 2013, 04:57:34 AM
I'm curious as to whether there is any demand for baseball cards within the bitcoin community. 

Specifically rookies and prospects from the last 3-4 years to current - rare (serial #'d) and autos.  Trout, Harper, Taveras, Dahl, Profar, Stanton, Buxton, Correa, and the list goes on.   

If there people who are interested in buying, I'm open to ideas about how to proceed with transactions.  I have over 1200 feedbacks on EBAY over the last 12 months - 100% positive reputation.  I could post specific cards to Ebay to prove I am who I say I am.  Whatever it takes.  I'm also willing to build a website (as I am a web developer), to showcase my cards with high rez pictures - with bitcoin payment option (as I've just been approved for bitpay.) 

I'm looking to take out 2 birds with one stone here.  One - acquire bitcoin.  Two - not pay ebay/paypal fees. 

Again, I'm open to discussion.

Let me look into this.  It shouldn't be a problem.  We're right at the base of the mountain, 5min drive to the resort.  Pretty good sledding nearby too if you have kids.  5min drive to Big Bear Village too (we're just far enough way Wink

Ya, when you start seeing grandma btc buying clubs spring up - because it's all made easy-to-learn, easy-to-buy by start up companies, who see it's current complexity as the $ (or btc) opportunity (to bring it to the average person) - then we might be looking at a bubble.   

Years out.  Until then, the only bubble is fiat.
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Will the bubble burst? on: March 22, 2013, 01:32:41 AM
I wonder if one factor with the current bubble is the difficulty in cashing out because of withdraw limits at exchanges. There are still a lot of early adopters/investors sitting on a ton of coins that are very difficult to actually sell. For example, MTGox has a $10,000 USD monthly withdraw limit. If you wanted to sell $1million USD worth of bitcoins it would take 8 years to withdraw it. I'm thinking this could be preventing a sell-off and once those limitations are removed, I expect a major correction. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see it hit $15/BTC at some point once these sorts of restrictions are removed. Right now I suspect many are only selling as much BTC as they can withdraw which artificially limits the supply since I suspect there might be a lot of people dying to sell right now.

/$0.02

One doesn't need Mt Gox to sell $1M in btc.  One just needs to find a buyer.  Meet in person to exchange, or wire money to escrow.  8 years to sell through Mt Gox?  Let's use our imagination just a wee bit.   

And I seriously doubt that Mt Gox monthly limits are what's limiting sellers right now.  You don't sell in masse into price appreciation.  The herd sells on the way down.  Who's had time to even think about selling in the last 4 days.  It's shot straight up.  This said, I'd really like to see a move back to the $50 range, so I can exchange fiat for btc at a much more favorable rate.

We're still in the smart money phase of your chart.  The fact that I can buy more than 1 BTC is evidence.  Only 10M in circulation.  These little blips are nothing.  Accumulate and wait.  Buy some goods and services now and then on the way up, spread the joy.  Positively contribute to the community.  What happens when 1 out of 10 people in the worlds largest 10 cities, want in on bitcoin?  25M people chasing 10M bitcoins.  Just to get into the community.  Do you think the price of one btc will be $50/per?  Do you think the bitcoin economy will be $500m?  Try something like 100B, or 200x what it is today.  Can't know for sure.  What if, what if, what if.  1 out of 10 people in the world's top 100 cities?  1 Trillion economy.  2000x what it is today.  Amazing to think about.

Talk of a bubble this early on is absurd.

The bubble isn't in BTC at all.  It's in fiat currencies.  Helicopters have been dropping paper all over the world for years now.  This is the bubble.  As paper purchasing power continues to erode, BTC holds/gains value against paper.  Since there is no underlying paper market (derivatives) in BTC (unlike gold), it cannot be manipulated and suppressed.  As everything else goes to shit, BTC remains the shining beacon of light.  And demand will continue for many years to come.  Sooner or later, noone will be able buy a whole BTC.  Only a fraction.  And the early adopters will be wholly rewarded for assuming most of the risks. 

Facebook, a fad website with a $100B market value?  Bubble.
