Default Blowoutcards Market Report: 01/23/13

The Market is HOT right now. This is the trend that we usually see this time of the year. Manufacturers tend to release less
products from Jan-April and older releases begin to surge back. We're seeing alot of presell buying in products across the board
lead by the following:

2013 Bowman Baseball Hobby & Jumbos
2013 Bowman Inception Baseball
2013 Topps Heritage Baseball
2013 Topps Series 1 Baseball Hobby & Jumbo
2012 Panini National Treasures Baseball

Seeing a surge also in the higher end releases. If you take a look at 2012 prices, there's alot of upside as long as production
and content remain similar or better. Collectors are starting to jump on these mid year releases.

2013 Topps Tier One Baseball
2013 Topps Tribute Baseball
2013 Topps Museum Collection Baseball
2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball
2013 Bowman Platinum Baseball

2012 Panini National Treasures Football
2012 Panini Prizm Football
2012 Topps Five Star Football
2012 Panini Contenders Football

2012/13 In The Game ITG Motown Madness Hockey
2013 Leaf Best of Hockey

As for the current market, it's all about 2011 FB products. Kaepernick has now surpassed Cam in single card values and is driving
2011 FB. A superbowl win will take 2011 products to a new level. 2011 FB was hot for most of the 2011 season and it started early
with the 5 QB's (Cam,Locker,Daulton,Gabbert,Ponder). At the time, Kaepernick was not even on the radar. Even Mallett cards were
selling for more. If you take a look at the Rookie class, 2011 has so much to offer including J.Jones,AJ
Green,Cobb,Vereen,Ridley,Demarco,Ingram,Leshoure,Jaquizz. Because of the strong rookie class, alot of it was opened early and
often and prices surged through the 2011 season. Then 2012 FB took over with RG3 and Luck and the attention shifted. Now as
collectors look at a possible superBowl winner and a future superstar in Kaepernick, 2011 products probably will have tremendous
upside over the next few years as products become more difficult to find. Take a look at the following:

Dealers have been chasing 2011 FB products across the board for a few weeks now. Here's what's moving:
2011 Bowman Sterling Football
2011 Panini Absolute Memorabilia Football
2011 Panini Certified Football
2011 Panini Crown Royale Football
2011 Panini Gold Standard Football
2011 Panini Limited Football
2011 Panini Plates & Patches Football
2011 Panini Playbook Football
2011 Panini Prime Signatures Football
2011 Panini Timeless Treasures Football
2011 Panini Totally Certified Football
2011 Playoff Contenders Football
2011 Playoff National Treasures Football
2011 Topps Chrome Football
2011 Topps Finest Football
2011 Topps Five Star Football
2011 Topps Inception Football
2011 Topps Platinum Football
2011 Topps Prime Football
2011 Topps Supreme Football
2011 Topps Triple Threads Football

Put some away now. Even if the 49ers do not win, the 2011 FB will still be in demand going into the 2013 FB season. If they do
win....the sky's the limit on this rookie class.
2008 FB starting to heat up also. Flacco just doesn't get the same sort of Hobby love but if the Ravens do win, pricing should
move up 10-20%. Remember that Ray Rice is also in this class.

The following products are heating up and dealers are chasing these:
12/3 Panini Prizm Basketball Hobby & Retail
2012 Bowman Sterling Baseball
2012 Topps Chrome Football
2012 Topps Triple Threads Baseball
2012 Topps Strata Football
2012 Bowman Draft HTA Jumbo Baseball
2012 Bowman Draft Baseball
2012 Bowman Sterling Football
11/2 UD The Cup (Exquisite) Hockey
2012 Topps Triple Threads Football
2012 Bowman 1 Baseball Hobby & Jumbos
2012 Panini Momentum Football
2012 Topps Five Star Baseball
2012 Panini Certified Football
12/3 UD SP Game Used Hockey
11/2 Panini Gold Standard Basketball
As for the new releases, this week we have:
2013 Historic Autographs The Art of Baseball
2012 Panini Elite Extra Edition Baseball
Konami Yugioh Cosmo Blazer Booster
Next week:
2013 Topps Series 1 Baseball Hobby & Jumbo
2012 Panini Prizm Football
2012/13 In The Game Heroes & Prospects Hockey
2012 Upper Deck SP Authentic Football

We have a ton of NEW Promotions currently on the Blowoutcards Forums tied to the Superbowl. Free Promos, Super Bowl Grid's + MORE on the way !

They are stickied to the top of the page and here's a link:
Blowout Cards Promotions! (And other cool stuff!) - Blowout Cards Forums

Some final thoughts:
1) Keep an eye on 2011 FB products
2) 2013 Topps 1 BB and 2012 Panini Prizm FB seem like they will be monster releases next week.
3) High end and prospect related Baseball products over the last 3 years are trending up and moving fast. Check your Bowman's,Bowman Drafts, Bowman Chrome, Triple THreads, Elite extras ect...
4) Hockey is starting to move but has not hit it's groove yet. We expect to see the high end start to move first such as Dominion,
Cup and Prime. Remember that next years class with have double Rookies similar to 05/06 so the 12/13 year may be a pass for most collectors. This does make the ITG line look pretty good this year if you want 12/13 products.
5) FB is usually strong until the end of Feb and then the market shifts to Bskt and Baseball
6) 2012/13 Panini Prizm Bskt is a huge long term winner. The Gold's/Green's will be sought after for years to come.

Stay Tuned...More to Come...
