Bingo, I'm also one of them, but once demand plateaus (maybe with a leaner rookie class or two) and we hit another recession, look out below. Give Panini credit though, they're milking us while they can.

Thanks for weighing in. I think the smart move is to hold, though the heart move is to sell. I will just be patient and see how I feel after a little more time passes. Maybe the National will push me in the right direction. Last time it was here, I ended up starting my Jeter PC.

I hear you. I'm not sure if the younger generation will be interested in this hobby as the older group.

20 years from now, they will have better technology and 3d printers. It might be a lot easier to make your own foil type and refractor cards at home. Do you think the demand can change in the future due to better home printers?

It really depend on how long you want to "hold" since the card market will fluctuant based on UD and Panini's supply/demand, overall US economy, and whether or not he can carry the Lakers to a championship in the next 3 years.

my predication on his key cards (topps chrome rc / SP auto / ultimate auto / Panini stuffs / excluding exquisite):

1-3 Year - up a little from current market value (he will get a pass for the first 2 years with the Lakers even if he can't reach the finals).

3-10 Year - down from current market value (If he can't get pass the Warriors within 3 years then collector's $$$ will go towards other new and upcoming stars. EVERY top Laker legend won at least one championship with the team. If he can't bring at least one then he has failed by all Laker standards) Moreover, US economy will more than likely go into a recession within the next 5 years, already 9 years into current bull market, so all collectables will be impacted.

10-20 Year - UP from current market value (His will retired as one of the top 5 to ever play the game even if he doesn't win another title).

Says the TMNT fan, clown pimping Blair Witch autographs on BO. Nothing like catching attitude from a Star Wars nerd. Talk about hilarious.

Hold on to a handful of the best ones, or your favorites, and sell the rest.

Sure you could possibly get more by holding on to the whole collection in the long term, but maintaining a large collection you no longer enjoy is a chore.

I would hold on to the rookie cards. LeBron's rookie cards (in my opinion) can only go up in value. Win or lose in a Lakers uniform does not really affect his legacy. And his rookie cards will always be the top cards to get.
