View Full Version : Would you do this trade

02-11-2007, 06:35 PM
I trade away :

Chris Paul 05-06 SPA RC Auto #/1299 bv $225
Andrei Kirilenko 04-05 Exquisite Signature Shots auto/jersey #/100 bv $80
Tracy McGrady 00-01 Signature Slams auto bv $80
Isiah Thomas 04-05 SPGU Wood Impression auto #/75 bv $80
Martell Webster 05-06 SPA RC Auto #/1299 bv $30

For 2 real nice PC items...

Yao Ming 03-04 UD Glass Autofocus Crystal auto #/25
Yao Ming 03-04 SP Signature Edition Autographed parallel #/11

The only problem is, that's a lot of tradebait to be handing away in a trade; leaves me pretty bare afterwards. Unfortunately, I haven't seen these cards on eBay in forever, so I don't know how much they go for. I really really really like them, but...is it worth it?

if they are PC items then go for it.... isnt that what tradebait is for?

02-11-2007, 06:37 PM
Admittedly yes...but Chris Paul and Isiah Thomas...just hard to part with big names like that...

honestly i think in terms of SV you are losing out

the thomas and paul alone may be able to pull you those two cards.. Non rookie yao autos dont sell for that much, whereas i know the thomas would sell for close to BV and the paul at least $100

if i recall most yao ROOKIE autos go for like 100.. and theres more demand for those than low #'d ones

I would say don't do it, but that's just me.

I think it would be a fair deal if you traded the Isiaih Thomas Auto and the Chris Paul Auto for both Yao Ming Autos. That would be fair, because you would be losing out IMO with the original deal.

All depends if it is for PC or not, if it is then who cares what you trade away(to a point), it's all for the sake of collecting. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade everything away for stuff for the PC, but it's all whether you think it's worth it.

Thanks for all the input. I have tried to work the deal as the 2 Yaos for the CP3 + TMac + AK + a patch card...but he is not moving on the price...

Like I said, I haven't seen these cards in forever; I do want them, but not so badly that I want to get hosed in a deal...

Well while what I said about SV is probably somewhat true..

Like you said, it's PC and they are not cards you will see very often especially these many years after the release of the product.

Coming from someone who routinely pays full BV for Hill cards, I would take it if you're serious PC. But from a "business" standpoint you're probably losing out.

DO NOT DO IT.... I wouldnt at least its up to you though.

If you really want them for your personal collection, I say go for it. I've given over book value in trade for a couple of my Wade autos and I've also paid close to full book on a few of my Wade autos. I personally think you're giving about $150-$200 more than what those Yao's are really worth. It all really depends on how bad YOU want them.
