Market Predictions?

SDS

Does anyone know what the market does around this time with the All-Star break?

Live series have dropped a lot. Is that because the recent stubs sale? Should I buy now or will they stay this low now?

SDS

Prices have more to do with supply and demand than time of year. Live series have dropped along with most other cards because everyone is selling and buying new shinny 99 cards and such. No one wants LS cards so there is no demand all the top players with the exception of Trout have All Star cards so people sell the alternative LS versions (see Acuna and Degrom for examples). When SDS has a stub sale the market inflates because more $ is coming into the market and buyers will pay more for a card as they have more $ to do so. When packs go on sale then supply enters the market and the value of cards goes down because there are more sellers than buyers. So to figure out what will happen in the market you need to understand the supply and demand relationship. Cards that are end game will be in high demand and prices will always be high for them. Cards that have low supply will also be expensive as even just a little demand combined with the scarceness of the card results in high prices. but LS cards in packs are not in demand and can probably be QS.

Do you think it’s smart to sell ASG MVP Vlad right now at 205k? Or will his price probably keep going up for a little while? Will they release more programs/events that have the Home run derby/ASG choice packs as rewards? Or will this be the only time those show up? I know you don’t know the future but I’m guessing they’ve done this in years past right?

SDS

I would say you definitely will see more of these choice packs but the question is when. This collection is very similar to the Jackie collection in my opinion

Sell Sell Sell. He might peak over the weekend but I would sell. He is not needed for Ohtani so he is not a "must buy" and so demand will fade for him as other 99's are released.
