Probably only 5 in existance. I'm guessing this should reach at least $1000? Anything less is a steal!

Mate this year is the worst ever , nothing to do with off season with cards like that just no high end buyers with a lot of spare cash all business are the same . That's why 3 of the big card dealers are bailing out

Business's are always "up for sale" for the right price. There are more and more starting up everyday, sure not to the scale of the 3 you mentioned. What do all 3 of those dealers have in common? Their cards are overpriced, and in tough economic times people are spending money elsewhere. Cards are like any other market you get your highs and lows, a good financial adviser will tell you everytime there's a dip it is followed by a spike. The Future force was the spike and some cleaned up dollar wise so expect a dip (happening now), so it's time to hold onto your stock until the next spike. If you can't do that because of cash flow then obviously you were caught up in the euphoria and over capitalised. Because it is quiet everyone is trying to sell and the market is flooded and that means it is a buyers market as seen by the low cost of the Hird brownlow card

Mate don't know if you have ever been to a fair that dj sells at but he has cues of people usually . The problem is that to many people get cost price cases and are willing to dump stock which devalues the cards .
Point in case is the new cricket release I sold 6 of my star sigs at sandown at $35 a card to one buyer only to come home and some seller has them on eBay for $20 . How the hell can you sell at that price and cover your cost ?

Too true talking to a guy recently who is sitting on 4 cases of 2005 dynasty and a case of 2006 supreme so if the regular person can access these who needs dealers. I don't have the answer to everyones situation but my situation is fine at the moment only because I am a team collector and usually buy to fill that need. Others went out and bought up every box they saw...for what?...the whole set....you better have good cash flow to do that on a regular basis

Im a strong believer that the cards are worth what they sell for. If they sell cheap chances are theres a reason for that. The market will decide whats worth more and whats not worth as much.

To the most you are correct but there are other contributing factors to take into consideration such as market audience, if you sell a card on this forum you can pay for example $50 but on ebay that same card could sell for $70 because you have more potential buyers, so I assume you were referring to Ebay?

Not just Ebay, all forms of sales. Card sale price = card value price to me. In saying that tho, i think there are way too many over priced cards about, but if someone buys it at said price then thats what its worth to me. If the product is limited enough then the market wont be flooded with it. The Draft Prospect release is a great example of a limited release not flooding the market. I think the price reflects the quality and avail;ability.

Mate , I'm talking fairs , eBay , forums . I've seen people selling PC Cards at $10 to $15 dollars a card . As they are one per box you would hope for a bit more I sell mine to a card shop for more then I see them go for . About 2 weeks ago I sold about 30 of them to one dealer for between $20-25 dollars after getting offers of $12-15 here , would of used them as fire lighters before selling for that

Its all about what people are willing to pay for a card isnt it. If that shop wants to pay $20-$25 for Premiers cards thats fine by me, would be interested to see what he sells them for and how long it takes to sell at his prices.

You would hope for more from a 1:36 card but look at the medal cards, their worse. If its not want people want and quality stuff then it will flood the market. Stuff these days is way over produced in my opinion.

Personally I don't think I qualify to comment as team collecting is vastly different to set/series collecting, so that would classify me as a collector not a re-seller/trader.
