Ok sa new one was just put out on ebay, the DC one I think.I have been watching this early bird market very closely for the last year.
Afa graded are hard to judge because they all have buy it now prices, and to be honest, I rarely see them sell. What sells the most are the opened loose sets or parts of the set. These go from 100 anywhere to 1000, depending on condition, complete unpunched. Or just flat out , MINT! The average loose will be the stand with envelope and they sell 200, 250. All day. Unpunched stand with cards attached bid past 700 almost always regardless of the envelopes condition.
If you went with an auction, I would imagine you would go past 2000, but I don't know because these are always buy it nows. I haven't seen any for auctions that are graded and sealed up.
I have one in my collection. I paid 200 for it back in the mid 2000’s. It’s sealed though the flap is torn.I don't see a certificate up for sale on Ebay. Too be honest unless a display stand is sealed you rarely see them. If you do it's just the tear off proof of purchase slip.
I have seen unopened stands go for many thousands and I would imagine the mail in certificate is worth more than a loose stand by far.
That's sealed? The flap is really hard to open it looks like at a minimum someone tried to. If the flap is stuck closed I'm not sure it's sealed perhaps it was opened and then closed quickly enough that there was still enough of a stick to make it appear unopened? Anyway the poster you were replying to was talking about the paper certficate you mailed back that was inside the evelope. Those are very hard to find loose. Almost every one you see is a fake reproduction. However a bunch turned up for sale to the public in 2015/2016 during the "Uncle Ron" find. I own one.I have one in my collection. I paid 200 for it back in the mid 2000’s. It’s sealed though the flap is torn.
