this guy will trade...
01-02 spx kwame brown auto jersey rookie card-spectrum #'d to 25 BV$500

for my 02-03 bowman sig stoudemire jersey auto 22/999 BV $250

is he nutz or me for not taking it in a heartbeat.

Maybe this guy is looking at it for down the road. Kwame Brown has shown nothing and doesn't look like he will amount to much and stoudemire is probably the front runner for ROY. For selling purposes, your stoudemire would be a lot easier to sell then the Brown.

yeah but people are only paying half book for AS, but if I get half book for KB then I made money. hell I could buy 2 more AS and repeat the process.

03-10-2003, 01:11 PM
or I could buy a ton of Amare etopps.

Thats what I would do!!!!

so I should trade and sell his and then buy a ton AS etopps huh, how high do you think they will go. Risky move though anytime you give up AS for KB who could be a star but the BV$500 is really tempting.

03-10-2003, 02:09 PM
Book value on those cards means nothing you actually in my opinion the amare is the better card but you would be hard pressed to get a c-note for either of them

03-10-2003, 02:15 PM
are you nutz AS is constantly going for around $125-175 #d/999 and the other is going for about the same I jsut found out so I am keeping my AS unless the pot gets sweetened a lot more.


03-10-2003, 02:20 PM
You would know better than me but i agree Amare seems like the better card should be roy

03-10-2003, 04:18 PM
Yeah, I can't see many people wanting to pay $500 for a Kwame card right now considering he really hasn't done jack.

03-10-2003, 05:54 PM
dont do it

03-10-2003, 06:06 PM
I was figuring if I did do the trade if I could get at least half book, I could 2 more AS's and flip them them.

KB=500/2=250 sell for 250
AS can find for 125-150

nope it is too break even to give up the 22/999 I have, I am thinking about getting it graded by BGS to me it looks like a 9.5+

which would net around $400. I think this is my best bet. or I could hold til he wins ROY and see.

03-11-2003, 05:04 PM
dont do that

03-12-2003, 11:17 PM
If it was #'d 8/25 that card has been flying around alot lately!!

03-13-2003, 11:59 AM
I agree that you should do it, but if it is an online deal be careful you dont get ripped off because the deal is "too good to be true"

03-13-2003, 06:05 PM
i wouldnt have it graded....if it is a 9.5 you are in great shape but what if it comes back an 8....your screwed......that is my opinion and i hate grading cards although i had it done to a couple old cards........just one poor white boys opinion

03-20-2003, 08:10 PM
yea dont do it keep the AS

03-20-2003, 08:24 PM
If you think it's to good to be true it probably is, I learned that the hard way once!

03-20-2003, 09:24 PM
Keep the Amare, he'll be a lot better than Kwame Brown.


03-21-2003, 01:24 AM
Yep I just learned on another deal, no more cancelling ebay auctions unless I know the other person from one of the boards, this guy kinda forgot to send the PSA 10 corey dillion rc, but he sent all the others and haven't responded to my emails yet, it has only been a day and a half but before the trade he emailed me 3-4 times a day. I am giving him til monday to respond and then I will release his ebay ID, name and address to the public and I think I will go into ebay MB and tell those sellers how he screwed me, so they block him to.


03-21-2003, 08:47 PM
Hope it works out. Good luck.


03-25-2003, 12:52 AM
Did you make that trade? There is no way I would trade the Amare for the Kwame at this point. Book Value has little weight IMO.

03-25-2003, 01:28 AM
nope I didn't do it so that is the end of the story. I thought about it hard and long.
