Thread: Game Used Prices

    Game Used Prices

    I heard from someone that because game used are so common in the marketplace that you can usually only sell them for between 20%-25% of book value as where most cards can be sold for 35%-40% of book value, do you guys feel this is true or is my friend misinformed...

    That's very true. A game used card worth $20, can be picked up for $2.

    Yes Game Used cards are worth nothing nowadays. All of the prices continue to fall because companies make too many of them. They are turning into insert cards of the early 1990s.

    what exactly is a game used sports card?

    Can anyone scan an example?

    I've got an Upper Deck Kobe that says "game dated"

    is this the same?

    A Game Used card has a piece of jersey or bat or ball on a card.

    While it's true most Gu only go for 20-25% BV, I disagree with your friend in his assessment that most cards can be sold for 35-40% BV. Some of the autos and hotter RCs may go for that much, but normal inserts go for under 10% BV.

    Actually Autograph, Rookie Cards, and low numbered cards can go for a lot more than what they book for. Its all supply and demand.

    Supply and demand is what it boils down to. A /10 insert/auto/jersey whatever, will likely go for a lot of money if it were to sell.

    Yup. That's why whenever I get game used cards now. They have to be numbered or autograph under a print run of 25.

    pwaldo, are you serious? Only 25 print run?

    That would make the card extremely rare and pricey, compared to the hundreds of thousands of cards produced.

    how much does such a card go for?
