Hey everyone, its been awhile, just got back from vacation and will be blogging alot about my time in West Palm Beach. But first things first, remember on July 7th I blogged about picking up some Barry Bonds rookie cards before he breaks the record?? In case you didn't catch it, here's the link to my Barry Bonds Blog. So I just checked and Barry Bonds memorabilia has been rising steadily on eBay and is close to 3 times its normal value.
There is still time for all you fence sitters and/or Bonds haters, Barry is still at 753 homers, two from tying Hank Aaron's record. Once he breaks the record I predict his baseball card and memorabilia will go even higher. Barry will resume his pursuit of Aaron in the Bay Area and should break it this week or next. Giving all of us speculators time to snatch up some more Barry Bonds Memorabilia.
While you may pay more today than say several weeks back I don't think this ride is over. However, make sure you do your research and do not way overpay, some sellers are asking absurd prices for their cards, looking to cash in on the hysteria. Here's another site that give some good info on on assessing rookie cards for collectors.
Also its important to keep in mind that there are many Barry Bonds rookie cards (16 total), I've listed them below:
- 1986 Barry Bonds Topps Traded
