We will have to wait and see when a red mini 1/5 or silver 1/1 comes up for sale Smiley Smiley

My theory holds for ginter x mini 1/100 ( recent sales in 600 range) and no numbers  150 (recent sales in 1200 range). I see no reason why a Brooklyn 1/25 would not go for 2400.

We will need to wait awhile to see if the theory holds true all the way through the 1/1 but, I believe the mini red #/5 will near the 15,000 range in the not to distant future.  In the non sportscard collection community spending 100's of thousands on rare cards goes on all the time.  Example the black lotus that I posted.  I for one will not be shocked to see a PSA 10 red mini go for 100,000.  Time will tell, but think I'm fairly close Cool

Man, i love Dolphriends optimism and insight.  Makes all this so fun. Thanks

Thanks Mrstacy, if it ever becomes work and not fun it's time to hang it up. Smiley

One interesting and exciting thing with trading these baseball cards is that on two occasions, the relative of one of the players bought one of my cards.  Ok, i'm not 100 percent sure, but they had unique  last names (Buehler and Banda).  It's still fun and you can make walking around money doing so.

I know collectors that never crack open boxes, if they want a specific card they buy the card and whatever the cost is they feel it is less than opening boxes.  Right now if a ginter x red mini comes up for sale at say 5,000 it is an absolute steal and would be sold the same day.  Doesn't need to be graded because there are only a few that exist.  I won't even guess how high a PSA 10 would go for.  I try never to look at past values but, rather where values are headed and do I like the card.  This works for me and I have fun with it.  Have fun out there fellow card collectors Cool

That hodl to boxes strategy would work like gangbusters this year.  i can't believe every year shows this much appreciation though (10x!)

There was an auction selling all 350 mini ginter x cards for 450 or so.  Now the one crypto card is worth 600.  Hindsight is 20/20.

Hmm. A 2017 Ginter x box can be had for 120, so 2018 is a unicorn year.

Still. that is a good return 50 bucks per box-600 per case.  You can buy a ton of cards with those profits.

This was an exceptional year for A&G and I'm sure they know it.   Smiley

There is no doubt that the hottest card from the 2018 A&G release was the #83 cryptocurrency.  Without a doubt this forum put this card into the fastest rising star category for a non sportscard.  Great job collectors Smiley

A mini Ginter X sold for $650.  Must have sold in seconds.  Didn't even notice it before.

If you look closely at the photo it appears off center.   Look at the left and right borders.

Could be a stock photo?

So is it possible that all 50? were printed this way?

I have a few that were better centered but, many of them could have been off center just out of the 5% tolerance allowance to grade PSA 10.

There have been 11 graded so far and only 6 have obtained a grade of 9.  With such a limited supply of these, it pushes the grade 9 to an even higher value than I had first thought.  Quite a challenge this little mini has turned out to be.   Smiley

There is a good chance that a few of the ginter x mini's #83 that I first auctioned in the display cases will grade at PSA 10.  I always look at my cards under a 10X and handle with gloves and recall looking at a few gems.  Hope those auction winners get 10's Smiley

I assume nitrile or latex gloves, correct? as to me, cotton gloves would be a corner catching hazard.

I use cotton and never touch the edges otherwise you are correct the cotton can catch the edge.  Many do not use gloves and that's ok too, just make sure hands are clean and free of any oil.  I don't believe gloves are used at PSA during grading but, those are professionals and know how to handle a card carefully.

You live on the edge Dolph. I couldn't handle that stress. "dont touch an edge, dont touch an edge dont touch an edge" When the years of coin handling taught me "only touch the edge"

If I'm about to open packs or switch a card into a different holder, I simply wash and prep myself & surface like Im about to do surgery.

thanks for info!

I just checked mine and they are centered to the eye. Granted I did not use a comparator loupe. I really do need to send them in for grading.
