Good time to buy.

They are inching up with the season just around the corner. Should continue the next few weeks.

PSA 10s - $260 or so right before the new year.... $300-310 right now - $350 avg Opening Day?

I had not heard this until today. I find it quite interesting.

The Angels will lower the right field wall at Angel Stadium from 18 feet to eight feet.

Angel Stadium should be slightly more hitter-friendly than it has been in the past. The Angels don't have a ton of left-handed hitters, but Kole Calhoun should be happy to hear the news. This is one of those scenarios that could help Shohei Ohtani as a hitter (he hits left-handed) and potentially come back to bite him as a pitcher.

This will help Trout in two respects. Since he hits to all parts of the field, more HR's and more robbed HRs when he is playing CF.

This will definetly help Trout and every other hitter (both teams) since it seems like everyone keeps getting doubles off of that wall.

Are the right field seats going to be lowered too? Or just the wall/scoreboard?

Anyone looking for a possible steal? This seller forgot to add COGNAC and BGS 9.5 to the title in his listing. Could be a steal depending how low the set reserve is.

Not my card

If it were a BIN yeah, but an auction with 5 days to go, can't really call it a steal.

I was watching that card already when you posted. We'll see what happens but I agree with moose with that amount of time most people will have seen it.

Well... if this is an indicator about the prices of his cards this season, hang on tight.

Diamond Sparkly Update PSA 10 $1175

I think the 10% eBay bucks helps. $100 back on that card that someone bought today.

If they got them (not everyone does, me being one of them) and this card took off quickly out of the gate. It was at $925 after 2 days.

I hope so! Although it looks sort of suspicious with all those bidders with retractions in the last 6 months. There's another one about to sell even higher.

I finished my Diamond Anniversary set (bought that PSA 9 that sold yesterday) so I'm all for a price spike.

I was referring to the Cognac BIN but yes also for the Diamond PSA 10 since it ended today.
