Hertl's Cards Are Out of Control
Tomas Hertl, the rookie sensation of the NHL. Someone listed his autograph card from last year's Czech release, and here's how it ended.
$461.56 with 70 bids.

To compare, others went for $15 and $16.69 a couple of weeks ago, before his major breakthrough.
Opinions, please. I can't be the only one who this that this is absolutely crazy.Collecting:
- Mask Cards
- 2005-05 UD Endorsed Emblems

I agree completely. It is insane.
Supply & Demand though.
Unless that card is incredibly limited (and there are some serious collectors of his) it's going to be a $15 card again in no time. The flood of autos he'll have in the next year (litterly, 1000s of signed cards) will make sure of that.

A fool and their money..... Even looking at the Artifacts redemption RC's for San Jose, they're going for $50-60. The redeemed versions of Hall and Tavares from previous years go for around $15. What's funny is that I can almost guarantee that these exact same people were paying ridiculous money for Torey Krug rookies.
I do like the way both Krug and Hertl play, but I highly doubt that they will ever be MVP caliber players like they are selling for. Oh well, as long as people are happy, they can do whatever they please!

I like the kid and knew about him from the start. I wasn't expecting for him to become a sensation though. However, with that being said, I may pick up some of his things when the prices go lower. With still chasing low #'ed Sateri, I'd rather put the money to complete this collection or put it towards other pc items than a new collection. It's crazy for sure, but we all know what happens when a player breaks out. As mentioned above.

Hopefully the hype dies down and I don't have such a tough time grabbing his rookie cards. Luckily I found his artifacts redemption for about half of what they are selling on eBay but not sure I could continue getting so lucky
