Default Immaculate Sales

Does anyone else feel that the majority of Immaculate Cards arent catching bids? Aside from the $100+ cards I feel that nothing is getting any interest. I have 54 cards ending today they are at a whopping grand total of like $250. Whats up. I had flawless COMPLETELY sold 3 days into release

It's all about the logomen and logo patches. Everything else is just fillers and will continue to go down in value.

Link me to your auctions so I can take a look. I think Immaculate looks really nice and no idea why prices are so low right now. Maybe collectors have finally no $$ after 20+ releases lol

It is because of....what collectors? LOL
Market is now more and more about investors and flippers. All of them focus on highest of high end, as that is where rich guys are most likely to come in and pay through the roof and get their face ripped off and not care, so that is exactly what is happening. Not many if any of them care for the lower tier players/set etc etc

Everyone spent their money on Flawless. I've always been in the camp that the most expensive product should be the last product released for the season.

the market in general is really poor right now. in terms of effort vs. return so far Nov has been the slowest month I have had on ebay in 15 years.

i think it has more to do with collectors feeling overwhelmed by all the new product

Maybe the product is what it is….A few nice patches/letters and some sweet logoman autos. The rest is just blah. More event worn auto/patches is the last thing that was needed. Immaculate is NT w a twist….Call them the "new" limited logos etc. Bottom line, the prices of the vertical and horizontal rap's will start to drop in price and interest. Supply and demand.

This!!!. Flawless would have been the icing on the cake. It should have come out last…Oh well.

This along with high end people are getting their fill. There are 3 legit higher end products out. Not all of them are going to pull huge numbers (which is good for everyone but people who are just pumping and dumping)

things selling cheap is in fact good for people who pump and dump too.
they need to accumulate a holding before the pumping can happen, and the cheaper the better

Do people not think there is a finite amount of people willing to pay these prices, I mean how many people can afford 1K Kyrie RC's before they start falling? People would be shocked if they actually knew the small amount of high end real "collectors" are out there.

U see some of the prestige autos? I was going to buy a few guys and possibly grade some stuff. But i mean stephen adams is selling for 40 bucks! Lol. Its crazy some of these rookies are selling for 40-50 dollars where I could see them as 2-5 dollar cards down the road

if you dont like prices youre getting, set them to buy it now with best offers, or start them higher in auction & hope for 1 bid. i think starting at least dec 1 this stuff will gradually go up in general across the board when people start buying cards as christmas presents and more time passes from the release of 2 high end products & people recover from buying their flawless. but sealed boxes/cases are only going to continue to go higher at least into the mid 500's. huge cards is what drive these prices & logoman 1/1 autos & 6 logomens will do that.

& theres no way that steven adams prestige autos will be more than at most $10 in a year & they will only be that high if hes actually doing well. the only reason these cards are high now is because people are anxious for the 13-14 stuff.

I haven't bought a single Immaculate card, and don't plan to.

I figured Immaculate sales would be roughly 1/2 of what NT sales were. I was surprised when I saw a Barnes RPA just got for 70 (would have bid but forgot about it). I had offered two other sellers 120 for them yesterday and they declined. Besides the Logos and Prime patches the sales seem to be just a little higher than GS.

I would say that based I the hype, it's a huge let down. Bordering on disaster territory.

It is incredible how cheap these Immaculate cards are selling! I mean Lillard RPA /99 at $400 and $595? I thought these were at least $750-800. I first offered $825 to one of the members here and got all pissy on me. Thank god, he declined. Also Barnes RPA /25 for only $117 and $169??? I thought these were at least $350-$400 card!! I mean NT RPAs are numbered out of 199 and event worn, at least some of the Immaculate cards are game worn. I'm little puzzled. I know that Flawless is still the king but I expected more out of Immaculate. For the record, I had paid A LOT more for Lillard /99 and Barnes /25 in a private transaction

I would be buying a ton of stuff, but shipping charges are way out of hand.

I have no problems paying $20 for auto patches from this product, but not with $30 shipping on each. Not worth my time. Plus the last 4 people I messaged said no discount on shipping
