Wanted to share a few treasures with those who have an appreciation of how difficult and rare it is to get a grade of PSA 10 gem mint for the black and red mini's.  If just a tiny speck of white shows the grade gets knocked down.  They seem really busy now so I would be hesitant to send anything for grading of fear of it getting lost. It will run 500.00 per card if you want 1 day service. 



Nice cards.  you must have a PSA insider to get them graded so quickly.

I hear that cards are doing better than most investments.  you may be able to retire with just those two if these go viral.

Do a walk-through if you live close 500.00 each grading and that is how to get it done in one day  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes  I am trying to collect the 5 colors of these eggs.  Yellow,red, black, silver and gold.   Lots of really cool images if you google bitcoin eggs , or crypto eggs.   

The hottest investment right now is in cards, certain ones of course.

Well, it looks like the black mini is going to be tough to get the PSA 10 this year.  Three graded and scores were 8,9,10.  Will know better after 10 or 15 are graded .  Was thinking about last year and probably of the special inserts besides the crypto the rarest was the #222 solar eclipse silver mini and even the red mini.  Those are the treasures and I only saw them for a brief moment when I put them in the display box. lol.  Perhaps I will make a crypto egg box if I find the silver crypto card

Happy hunting all, have fun with all of it Cool Cool Cool

Dolphriends you have a count of cards in the wild crypto and egg. Those with less than 25.

Have you tried the Crypterium App? It lets you buy, send, exchange or cash out  crypto, and even get the first global crypto card. I’m already loving it. Register with my code oxrdu or this link and get $5 to try it out 😉 https://crypterium.app.link/71mq8T48AY

Dolphriends you have a count of cards in the wild crypto and egg. Those with less than 25.

For the crypto X there is still the 1/5, 2/5 and 3/5 red mini and the silver mini.  There is also the regular 1/1 glossy and the wood stock

For the egg x  there is the 4/5 and 5/5 red mini and the silver mini.  Everything in the regular A&G except for the 4/25 and 5/25 brooklyn and the majenta printing plate is still out there in the wild.  

Remember this is the collecting phase which is the most fun and challenging.  I enjoy opening cases while the costs are pretty reasonable but, never have much luck.

Pretty rare to see one pop up not being in a set.  They know the egg will move the complete set .  Now if you are trying to get that rare psa 10 probably better to wait until one comes up already graded although be prepared for the sticker shock lol.  I had a 10 but, it went to a friend.  Most likely they will come in around psa 9.  If you look very close at the 1/5 red mini look at both of the top corners and see if you think the top left is sharper than the right.

A few comments for the day.

One way you can tell when a card is going to move early is by the totals that are being graded.  If you look back you will see the crypto card is well represented in total of graded cards.  The new egg card will break through the ceiling as it hasn't hit instagram and facebook and twitter which PSA is always asking to have their cards put on.  It's probably good publicity for them    Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Quick update, there are no regular silver glossy's or glow in the dark cards for the 2019 Topps A&G. I doubt there were even 10 of the glow in the dark from last year so whoever has the crypto glows ,congrats.   Also, for those who are watching the egg card, if you are planning an entry point, when you see all the mini blacks are gone and the clock strikes midnight the train has left the station.  .   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

No, I am watching the regular size common PSA 10 that is listed on ebay , there will be many psa 10's of the commons but, if it breaks 100.00 look out above. 20,000.00 will look like a steal .   This is a big if, though. Shocked

PSA grading so far has been exciting for the unscrambled ones, Psa 10's for 1 black mini x, 1 red mini x. 1 brooklyn back, 1 regular and 1 mini.  However on the black mini x cards 1 has scored an 8 and 1 has scored a 9, very high scores but, probably a sign there will be few 10's.  The red mini x was just pure luck and quite a surprise.  The person with the black mini x psa 10 might be holding the only one just like the crypto mini black x.   The treasure hunt continues celebrating it's one year anniversary.

Hey all Smiley Smiley

I was asked a few times about evaluating the pricing on printing plates.  I look at printing plates as original originals since they are used to make the cards.  They really are in a class of their own.  Pricing them really depends on the value of their cards but I like to use the brooklyn back.  For example I look at the value of the cryptocurrency #83 brooklyn around 1500.00 and multiply that anywhere between 25 to 50 depending on the card.   However, if you have all four I more than double to almost triple the overall value.

For the crypto I would use a 35x multiplier which would run about 52,500 per plate and I would triple the total value giving that rainbow a 600,000 + value .  This is a current value and my opinion is the value will rise from here.  At the end of the rainbow is the pot of gold

Anyway this is how I approach the value, but as always it really comes down to the seller and the buyer and many factors are always in play.

LOL  Smiley Smiley

Actually I would really enjoy seeing any of my fellow collectors put together an all four printing plate rainbow.  We know the most difficult one of all time( #83 ) has been accomplished in less than one year and one plate at a time but, if anyone put together a rainbow of any somewhat interesting and sought after non-player insert from the 2018 or 2019 Allen and ginter cards it would certainly be an incredible accomplishment worthy of recognition and a place on instagram.  Go for it Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

A few comparisons of value I wanted to point out regarding the value of a psa 10 grade and also I made an early comparison of the crypto #83 to the egg #213.

 Description
Also referred to as red back
Hand numbered to 25 - Very rare
Retail pack odds of finding a Brooklyn logo mini: 1:330 packs (1:~100,000 packs for #83 specifically)
Miniature 1.5" x 2.75" trading card, White background (front), red B&W logo printed on back
May also be found in the Ginter X packs

   PSA Population Report (updated Sept 2019)
   Grade 10 - 2

   Prior Sales Info
   $8.75 7/22/18 - $23.50 7/24/18 - $230 9/1/18 - $500 8/26/18 (Source: Nah-256)
   $6500 - eBay PSA 10 - Jan 12, 2019 (Source: https://ebay.us/RsRx5d)
   $1425 - eBay ungraded - July 29, 2019
   $1451 - eBay ungraded - August 19, 2019

The only and first three brooklyn-back eggs were respectively sold for 300.00, 350.00 and 306.00.  These sale prices can be verified through ebay.  There havn't really been any other sales to go by as of today.

The psa 10 seems to garner a tremendous increase over an ungraded card.  If you think you really have a 10 I would recommend to grade it as any crypto card will bring a higher price for that grade in my opinion.

Someone must think that a graded CRYPTO card by Becketts is the shit, and hiked up the price. Maybe they use a Platinum infused acrylic holder  Huh, that would at least explain the rapid jump. I still think that a grade of 10 looks better on a card than a 9.5  Grin regardless of where it comes from.  Wink
