Finally Found Some 2017-18 Prizm Basketball

2017-18 Prizm basketball cards were released in mid December of 2017.

Since the day it was released, I have been to my local Walmart and Target stores so much that the employees probably think I was hired.

I thought searching for this product would not be hard to find because I am in a larger area south of Seattle and we have 2 Walmarts and 2 Targets in our town alone. Not The Case!

I had searched and searched with no luck. I don’t know if there are other collectors that have an inside track on when these stores restock or not, but every time I would go look there were no Prizm at all.

But over New Year’s Eve weekend I finally hit the jackpot at the local Target. I entered the store not expecting anything as usual.

As my eyes scanned all the racing card blasters and other product I have no interest in…I SPOTTED THEM!!!

Hanging on the racks were 14 packs of 2017-18 Prizm Basketball retail cello packs!! I think I may have pulled an arm muscle from reaching up and grabbing these off the racks so fast.

The funny part about this is that I have not even opened the packs yet. I think I will just keep them sealed and hang onto them for a while. These same packs sell for between $15-$20 on eBay. It was nice getting them at the SRP of $10 a pack.

The reason I will not open these? I believe over time these could be a real sought after unopened product because this 2017 NBA Draft class appears to be loaded with talent.

The list of rookie players from this draft that are playing well is impressive.

Players like Dennis Smith, Jr, Kyle Kuzma, Donovan Mitchell, Lonzo Ball, Lauri Markkanen, Jordan Bell, Justin Jackson, Josh Hart, Jayson Tatum, John Collins, Jonathan Issac, Josh Jackson, Frank Ntilikina, Malik Monk, OG Anunoby, and DeAaron Fox (He is battling an injury right now).

And the #1 Draft pick, Markelle Fultz, hasn’t even played yet in 2017-18 because of an injury. So yeah, it is safe to say that this Draft class is loaded with potential.

Only time will tell where the 2017 NBA Draft class stacks up to other drafts, but right now it is on the right path for sure.

I Was Shocked When I Saw Recent Prices On 1989-90 Fleer Basketball Boxes

Fleer Basketball 1989-90

1989-90 Fleer Basketball Boxes Have Skyrocketed In Price.





Oh yeah!! Good old 1989-90 Fleer basketball cards. Seems like only yesterday that I was a 20-year-old kid when this product hit the marker back in 1989.

It was in that year of ’89 that the 1986-87 Fleer basketball card set took off in price. In late 1988 you could have gotten a Michael Jordan Fleer rookie card for about $5. If only I would have known then what I know now I would be a rich man.

With the sudden success of that 86 set, collectors, including myself, were really excited when the 89-90 product came out. I can still remember going to a baseball card shop in my hometown of Sacramento, California and buying tons of packs for 50 cents each.

The hot rookies we were trying to find in those packs back then were players like Kevin Johnson, Reggie Lewis, Hersey Hawkins and Mitch Richmond to name a few.

Of course, when we would pull a 1989-90 Fleer Michael Jordan 3rd year card out of the pack, we were really excited.

Over the years ,after this product came out, collectors started to realize that the 89-90 Fleer set would never live up to its 86-87 premiere issue because Fleer let the presses run and more product was produced. And of course, we know that the 86 set carries the Jordan rookie which obviously helps.

As the years continued to roll by, box prices of this product seemed to settle at around $45 to $50. Until recently!

eBay Prices For Unopened Boxes Have Taken Off

I hadn’t even looked at prices on eBay for years until recently when a collector posted a thread on the Blowoutcards forum. He mentioned that the prices of 1989-90 Fleer boxes have caught fire and have skyrocketed in price.

So I went over to eBay and checked it out for myself and I could not believe it! An opened box sold yesterday for $235!! See the screenshot below.

Collectors Are Grading These 1989-90 Fleer Cards

What has driven this product up in my opinion is graded cards. Back in 1989 this Fleer set was noted for having some of the worse cut cards ever produced.

It seemed like every card you pulled out of a pack was off centered and cut wrong. This has driven collectors to look for the most centered cards that they can find and send them into PSA or BGS to get graded. Some of the high grades of 89-90 Fleer have brought in some hefty prices on eBay.

A graded PSA GEM MINT 10 1989-90 Fleer Michael Jordan just sold for $600. The stickers that were inserted into this set have sold for even more as a Michael Jordan PSA GEM MINT 10 just sold for $3,449.99 in late May 2016.

I have a ton of these cards and they have been sitting in boxes for years and years. I guess it is time for me start sorting through them again. Should be fun as it will return me to my youth back in 1989.

1991-92 Fleer Michael Jordan Cards Selling Well On eBay Too.

6/21/16-The 1991-92 Fleer Michael Jordan card has caught fire on eBay. This card is not selling for a ton of money by itself, but if it is sold in lots it is bringing in some surprisingly high prices.

I just sold some of these Jordan cards myself. I placed a 7-day auction a little over a week ago for a LOT of 12 1991-92 Fleer Michael Jordan cards.

I started the auction at $0.99. It stayed that way for a few days. I then started to get a few bids. It went up to $2.00 by the third day. Then the weekend hit and the bid was up to $18.89.

Okay, so I am figuring since there is only one day left of the auction, it might end at around the $30 range. As Monday approached and there were just minutes left of the auction, I was just itching to see what these cards would end up at in price.

Finally, at 10 AM the auction ended. I went to my eBay page and was astonished when I saw that the auction had a final sale price of $96!!

I was in shock. It seems like basketball card collectors are really zoning in on pretty much all of Michael Jordan’s early Fleer cards. Not just the coveted 86-87 rookie, but even his 6th year Fleer card like the 91-92 issue.

The 91-92 Fleer Jordan card really has a nice color appeal to it. The red and blue colors really stand out. The action shot of Michael is spectacular as well as it shows him gobbling up a rebound.

I pulled all 12 of these cards from packs back in the 1991-92 basketball season. They have been in card savers and sitting in a box for nearly 25 years.

In a way, it was kind of sad to see them go, but you know what? I still have 17 more of these Jordan cards. 🙂

Below is the actual photo that I took for the auction.

Most Expensive Stephen Curry Rookie Cards From 2009-10.

2009-10 national treasures gold stephen curry rookie card auto



I was surfing around eBay looking at what Stephen Curry 2009-10 rookie cards have sold for in the recent past. I wanted to see the highest prices that basketball card collectors paid for the Golden State Warriors’ superstar.

I clicked on the “Completed Listings” button and this first card caught my eye.

It is the Stephen Curry 2009-10 National Treasures Gold Rookie Autograph card numbered to only 25 made. It is also graded a BGS 9 with the autograph a grade of 10.

So, what did this premium Curry rookie card end up selling for, you ask? It sold for a cool $15,000!!

I took a screenshot of the completed eBay auction. You can see it below.

After searching more, I noticed this other Curry rookie card that sold for a hefty price on eBay.

This one is the Stephen Curry 2009-10 National Treasures Autograph Rookie Patch. This card has a grade of BGS 9  and the autograph is a perfect 10.

This sweet rookie card sold for a cool $5,955.00.

Stephen Curry 2009-10 Topps Chrome Refractor Rookie BGS 9.5 Card Numbered To 500.

The next card that I noticed was this one. It is a 2009-10 Topps Chrome Refractor Stephen Curry rookie card numbered to 500.

It is also graded a BGS 9.5.

Topps Chrome is always a winner with collectors. However, this card is kind of dull in my opinion. The photo on the front features a baby faced Steph Curry.

Too bad that Chrome could not have captured an action shot of Curry instead of basically a mugshot. Still a very nice card though.

By the looks of what it sold for, collectors still love this card though. It sold for a solid $875.75.

Stephen Curry 2009-10 Playoff Contenders Rookie Ticket On Card Autograph RC.

I actually bought a hobby box of this product back in 2009. But my luck with busting packs has not been good. I did not get this sweet, awesome card in any of those packs.




But there was a lucky collector who did. And it may have been this eBay seller who recently sold this Stephen Curry 2009-10 Playoff Contenders ROOKIE TICKET On Card Autograph rookie card for $429.99.

I love the photo on this Curry rookie card as it shows the Warriors’ super player IN ACTION!
