View Full Version : How do you price a rare card??

I pulled a Framed Xfractor card for the #9 pick, Noah, out of Finest, how do you price a card like this when it is listed 1/1??

would you have the heart to sell something like that?

Its hard to find a price for a 1/1. Only thing you can do is look at how other versions of that card are selling and plug in a custom multiplier.

The price of anything is always what the consumer is willing to pay for it.

Sometimes people do not like this answer, becuase they value thier stuff a lot higher than most are willing to pay for it or trade for it, that is why it is pretty hard to trade with some traders...

Yeah, I agree with lopezhm, it being a 1/1 makes it more difficult to agree with a trader or buyer. But, if you find the right person (Noah collector) it will be a nice amount of money.

ebay :P

true 1 of 1's are good investment cards though, especially for rookies..

If there are multiple parallels of the same card, look at the multipliers for the more plentiful ones and try to extrapolate a number for the rare one.

so does anyone know anyone who would be interested in a card like this, i know that the Kevin Durant card like this is estimated very high (1300) noah isn't quite the caliber, but he is technically about 4th or 5th in stats....

Noah seems to be going for about 25% of Durant, according to Beckett. That would make him about $400 if Durant is $1300.

Beckett has long been worthless as far as pricing goes though

Fact is, Noah is a fan favorite but is dead weight in the hobby.. Durant draws player collectors/"investors" since he has a very high ceiling and could potentially be a big time scorer, which hobby people love

Noah is a solid player and though his value/stats at this point is very solid, he doesn't have nearly the following

IMO your best bet is to put it up on ebay with a Buy it Now/Best offer with a prohibitively high number, just to see what Noah collectors are willing to give you.
