Good buy or bad buy? 1992-93 bball topps stadium club members only set
I have been watching Jordan and Shaq 92/93 beam team card prices and had thought about investing in a PSA 10 or BGS 9.5 Jordan. I never found a Jordan near what I was willing to pay.
Full set prices, with COA and binder with the cards removed from the sealed set and placed in binder, have sold for $500+. Many are asking $1000+ but likely will never get it. I didn't look to see what the next lowest price on a sealed set is but none appeared to be listed below $1000.
I came across a full set, sealed in box, with COA and binder, all with original packaging for $1150. The binder is in perfect condition with all the empty pages. I made an offer of $625 expecting a counter offer, declined offer, or just completely ignored. Less than 20 minutes later the deal was accepted.
They made 12,000 sets. Plenty are still sealed I imagine but I wouldn't think a sealed one will fall hard as long as the Beam Team cards are still sought after. I would probably hate to know what the original purchase price of these sets were but it's been 30 years.
My friends think I'm crazy, my wife and kids know it, I just think I'm crazy lucky sometimes. Who knows, maybe this will end tragically with a logistics mishap, if not then I think this was a good purchase.
I am trying to put certain cards away for the kids to get when I pass and I am wondering if this should get tucked away with the rest?
