We will see how this all plays out, and I expect to see fully private-key-loaded baseball cards coming in 2019 or 2020.  
Those are some beautiful cards, and I hadn't seen this thread before--I half expected the crypto cards to be loaded with a nominal amount of bitcoin.  It's great to see Topps do this, even though I don't collect cards anymore.

I liked your brief history of the trading card bubble, and it was spot-on.  Baseball was never my thing, but basketball was and those cards in 1986-88 (the ones I collected) didn't get printed nearly as much as baseball cards.  By 1999, those TV marketing shows were selling boxes or cases of Upper Deck baseball cards with the Ken Griffey Jr. rookie in it.  Very overpriced, too.  It was crazy how people were speculating in sports cards of any kind.  I used to subscribe to the Beckett monthly price guide, which was before the internet took off and it seems archaic nowadays that there were printed price guides.

Crazy how the quality of cards has gone up over the years, and it does seem like Topps and other companies have learned that overproducing cards screws collectors/investors.  That's a huge positive.  Unfortunately I don't think the younger generation is going to be all that excited about them.  From what I've read of the current state of card collecting, most of the active collectors are middle-aged men--sort of like how most current stamp collectors are geriatric ones.  Time will tell, but this is still very cool.

Which #1/49 card sold for $700???  I never saw that, have a link by chance?

Yes.  That would be a sale to note.

In the interest of full disclosure, i sold a red, brooklyn back and no number for about 2800 to an anonymous buyer.  Paid about 1600 for them.  Probably could have gotten 3500 on ebay i'm thinking, but as the saying goes.  Pigs get fed.  hogs get slaughtered.

Plus, i always want to give a preference for this community when i can.

Really? Might be time to sell my own red Brooklyn back + NNO cards. Grin

It is funny how we've seen the same number of the 1/25 brooklyn backs and the 1/5 red cards.  Only a few NNO as well. 

For the NNO, i sometimes have to go through the A&G backs twice to see them.  Some folks may have a NNO cryptocard and not know it.

I previously stated that with the purchase of Topp $1,300 350-card 1-of-10 set, you could pretty much sell the rest and possibly make the Cryptocurrency card cost little to nothing.  But...

That is a ton of mailing.  Yesterday, i must have mailed 20+ items.  On Sunday, i have about 30 auctions ending, so it is beginning to be quite a chore.

i do like chatting with the baseball fans and negotiating with them though.  This is keeping me from looking at my losing ICO investments.  The stakes are much less with these cards and i appreciate that.

You got it!  This is what i had before i sold. Brings a tear to one's eye - all those rare cards in one display.

It is better to have had and sold than to have never had at all or something like that.  They Brooklyn was from Japan. i didn't realize Topps had worldwide fans.

Wow!. That is impressive I must say Smiley  I would have had a difficult time selling knowing chances of finding another is slim.

What you have to realize is the way collections are put together by bigtime card collectors, some collect a brooklyn of each card, so you may never see another brooklyn because they are used to complete sets.  Same with the mini reds, printing plates and so on.   Smiley Smiley Smiley

Happy hunting all

Hmm. i never thought about that. but then again one guy wanted certain black borders to complete a set.

I'm ok with it. i'm not fully converted on the cards, so it makes me happy to see true believers hold the rare ones.  just don't tell me in 10 years a red is worth 25k.

The hunt for the cards for me is funner than the holding.  i was into R/C planes at one point and liked to build, but not flying necessarily.  To each his own i suppose.

Interested in picking up a Brooklyn back /25 if anyone's is willing to sell.  Maybe a glow mini too.

Does anyone have an actual picture of the 1/1 silver X mini? Still not surfaced?

When the silver mini 1/1 does show up, it will be so expensive I can't even imagine.  About 5 brooklyn's have surfaced and I seriously doubt anyone is letting one go unless an offer is made that just can't be turned down.  Best of luck with the hunt Smiley

That is like catching a unicorn on February 29th. hard to do.

i've only heard of 3 glow cards and there is no official count of them or am i mistaken?  Should be the same number of glow-in-the-dark cards for every card i'd think.

Do we know for sure whether there will be a #/3 metal card, #/10 cloth card, or even a sketch card?

Fair enough on the silver, hopefully it at least becomes public at some point when it gets pulled.

Unfortunately I got rather lazy when the last couple Brooklyn backs came up for sale but am certainly willing to pay a decent price.   

I'm admittedly new to the card game, are all prints of these cards expected to be in circulation(opened or not) or is Topps still supplying/distributing boxes and cases?

No worries Chris, there is another one on ebay that will have more competition since we lost out on this one.  Smiley
