Default 2013 Box Prices compared to Singles values?

2013 Topps Finest, for example, has been on the steady rise in terms of case/box prices, yet singles have trailed in comparison since the beginning. What is driving the prices so high? I've been in a lot of case breaks this past month and when adding up singles, it's rare that all the cards combined reach even close to what the case costs.

That's a really great question and I wish I knew the answer. Geno Smith has not been very good and he's one of the major sells for 2013.

I'm not so sure I would invest so much into any 2013 boxes. I haven't seen many rookies being all that impressive so far. Maybe keep watching and waiting...

This is because singles always command a premium when the product first releases and ebay gets hit with the first ones. Good/hot products like finest when the supply starts to dry up then prices rise on boxes/cases.

Because the suppliers are running out of the product and the sellers are asking for more boxes. So the box price is going up.

Its going to be rough this year... After last year will look rougher...

Good for prospecting imo

Next year there will be 6-7-8 qb's taken in first 2-3 rounds if everyone comes out

Because people want the new thing, even if the new thing isn't better than the old thing. Singes prices rarely ever add up to the case/box price.

Supply and demand. It really isnt all that difficult.

Teddy Bridgwater and Tahj Boyd will be only two worth anything. Johnny Mansautograph won't be a great NFL QB like Tebow. AJ McCarron also will be 1st round pick and all he does is WIN.. With his experience he is most polished QB IMO

Yes Supply and Demand isn't difficult, but I am still wondering what they heck could be driving the demand up even further than release date prices now that finest has been out awhile and new products have come out since, making it not the "new" thing anymore.

Name 1 new product you will buy over finest. People are still buying Finest because it looks nice and it is not hard to pull a top rookie. So supply is getting low.

Start of the football season led to stuff going up after a few guys started doing ok in preseason. some of that was from casual football/cards fans though, and will drop off as the season goes on and rookies don't pan out like Tyler Wilson

edit: Also Finest came out and was nicer than expected with better initial boxes after last year's was so hit or miss.
