In this week’s episode of the Loupe Market Report Powered by SlabStox, we analyze how value differs across base sets. It has to do with variations, rarity, and how widely available the product is. Before you invest heavily in sealed wax, make sure to use online resources to understand how it stacks up compared to other products. You’ll definitely get the most bang for your buck if you study checklists to get a feel for the products that were produced in shorter supply.
As we turn our attention to basketball, anyone who believes in the card market long-term will want to buy the dip on Chris Paul. His prices have steadily declined despite leading the Suns to the conference semifinals. When the market recovers, Paul’s value will too. In baseball, Jacob DeGrom’s historic season has rightfully led to a spike in his prices. We look at Tua Tagovailoa in football, who’s at something of a crossroads next year. His value is either going to explode or plummet, and it seems like the whole hobby is eagerly watching. Finally, in soccer, Mbappe’s soaring right now. He’ll go even higher if France performs well in the Euro Championship.
Remember that we’re live on Loupe every Thursday at 6pm Eastern, talking about the card market and answering your questions. Thanks for watching another episode of the Loupe Market Report, and we’ll see you next week!
