I just obtained this oversized card of a "game used" Kobe Bryant Santa suit. I'm trying to find BV for it in the Beckett annual issue, and it doesn't seem to exist. There's a price for the 1999 Kevin Garnett Santa suit card: $80. It appears at the end of the 1998-99 Upper Deck listings, so I would have thought the Kobe would be at the end of the 1999-00 Upper Deck listings. It isn't.

So I'm trying to logic my way to a BV here. At the time the book was printed, Kobe's cards were worth 2x Garnett's (Garnett has recently gone up in value so that Kobe is 1.5x his value). So if the cards were made in the same year, Kobe would have been about $150. But it was made the next year, and accounting for the slight yearly decline, I'm estimating a BV of $125. Anyone have any thoughts?
