After getting into collecting 2/3 years ago, I have been looking at basketball cards after watching cardboard addicts & started doing some research on them. The thing is I still have no idea the difference between a $5, $500, $5000 card :rolleyes:
Along my research I have found some interesting site and opinions ect and stumbled over this YouTube channel. I have no idea if the information is correct but I did enjoy the content for what he is trying to accomplish and do. Any thoughts, help & opinions to pull the trigger & branch out from A-League/ NRL/AFL (basically the Aussie market) would be greatly appreciated. Here is the youtube channel is : Cardboard Chronicles

I follow the guy on Instagram and watch most of his video's, his a fairly big Penny Hardaway and LeBron collector his content on YouTube is pretty good interviews all the big collectors on Instagram like Nat Turner to people like Brett from PWCC (trimming fiasco). I would say his pretty well known in the card community.

I might be missing the nuance of your query but it usually always boils down to Supply and Demand.

Collect and keep what you like, sell/trade what you don't if you want to get more for your collection or fund more box breaks if you need to keep your funds in play (assuming you're not rich!). Follow the market and be educated so you can maximise selling potential. It's all a fun learning curve.

forums, ebay, COMC, 130point.com - heaps of resources out there.

If you don't want to pay $700 for a Luka silver prizm don't! If you like the $50 Select Silver just get that! Hype is a crazy swingy thing, you don't have to follow it. Huge demand drives up some of the card prices - some are collectors, some are investors/flippers - it's all good - there's plenty of reasonably priced stuff out there, new and old releases. Enjoy!
