    Just starting this thread as the old thread is sort of off topic. We are past that first drop now and these are pretty exciting.

    Now if I could just get something under 15,000 place in line to get one!

    If we knew, we’d all be rich! It’s hard to know. Most cards went up within a week, then slowly down.

  • Neilj907

    Yah I got an emerald also but doesn’t seem to be goin up much

  • Stangs13

    Yea put it up for $99. Probably won’t sell today but I’d be happy with that at some point

    It’s crazy to me that people are willing to sell a card $71 (minus 15%, so really just $60) when they “won” it for $50. Emerald and Sapphire are the forgotten ones. People prefer to pay for a number they like in lower cards or just buy Ruby. I sold my Sapphire Osaka $192 but I guess I was lucky.

    Got 2 today after trying and failing on most of the other drops. #96 Platinum and #671 Sapphire. Not sure yet if I’ll just keep them forever or flip them

    Hawk is sort of a yawn and is comparable to Biles and Osaka. Until they come out with what you get for holding on to these that is exclusive there really is no bump to be expected. They should go balls out to create a huge bidding war with say what you get for various experiences. They want to grow this nuts so they can make a ton off the 15% sales fees they gotta come up with something good. Personal zoom call, more autographed sh&t. What does Brady care about signing some stuff since he owns the company.

  • yisman

    I did not snag a Hawk

  • jonup

    After not winning a single drop since the Osaka carbon premier drop, I got luckier than hell today and hit on 3 of 5. Makes me think there has to a bug with the randomizer being used, because I am simply not this lucky.

    Ended up buying a #4976/5000 on the secondary market for $34 today. Don’t really know why I did, but I did.

    Yeah I’m contemplating buying a resale one just to keep. Like Tony Hawk but I’m being cheap. Still need a NFL win to fund this venture.

    Thought I had a $12 but got bumped out when I was supposed to be able to buy one. I know that’s happened to many here. Never came close on the $25!

    Just bought a $40 Tony Hawk Platinum when second lowest was $48, then realized I needed to sell it $47 just to break even. Crazy how 15% ruins profit. I sold it at $47.49 and made a few cents, so I basically just inflated the price for no reason! Sometimes I just instantly buy when I see a misprice, and then I calculate and regret. It was kind of a cool number though: #1169.

  • realphipps

    Imagine paying a 15% commission every time you sold a stock… I wouldn’t own stocks if that were the case.

    The atrocious fees already littering this industry will likely lead to it’s very rapid downfall once these artificial market values (floor, mean, ceiling) stabilize on the units.

    If I get one, it’s flipped within 2 hours. Exceptions would be a signed Ruby (haven’t won yet) or a rare athlete with a high, sustainable Q-rating like Brady, Lebron, Ohtani.

    I think every signed card, Ruby or not, can hold value, since they’re all individually signed. Other than that, making profit without winning a drop is very hard. Only Brady took some legit value.

  • realphipps

    I largely agree Felix. But I see signs, already, that the Sapphire and Emerald markets are going to be dead zones for the signed editions in this marketplace. I do believe there will be stability and growth with the Ruby editions, as well as the cheaper Platinum and Carbon $250’ers at checkout.

    At some point, from my understanding, you will be able to transfer these to an outside wallet, which in theory should add value to these (creating additional avenues to market/sell), and yet we have to assume that transfer fee will meet or exceed 15% of a unit’s market value as DK will want to keep sales in their marketplace and eliminate “runarounds” to avoid their seller fees.

    No luck in Tuesdays drop. Hopefully that changes today! Good luck to all participating in the drops today

    It still amazes me how clueless some people can be. A card was sold for $500 and another one for $700…

  • caleb21scott

    @Felixxberg

    In a hurry for a quick flip. Too scared to hold it

    I understand, but $1K cards were selling in under a second. How did these people not even look what the market price was?? A Platinum just sold for $500 too! I can understand with the first few drops, but we’re weeks in now!

  • rvnfn77

    I got the carbon signed #55 not sure if that number means anything or not. Have no clue what price to even put on it. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for the response I still feel lost have no clue if #55 means anything. Or if I should hold or sell.

  • jki7p6

    What are you aiming for realistically? Nobody can tell you to hold or sell knowingly. Its a matter are you in this to flip, hold, or get lucky?

  • rvnfn77

    Gotcha not sure really. Guess we all wish we knew long term about this. I know if we did we all would be rich lol. Just was curious if even on the board had some incite to it was all.
