Guide to Expected Box Break Values of Trading Card Collections

Written by Tom

In addition to tracking the sales prices of sports trading cards, www.PriceGuide.Cards also tracks the after-market activity of expected box break returns for soccer card collections, providing collectors with important information such as the box's overall ‘Return on Investment’ (ROI) and actual sales values of autograph and memorabilia cards.

The goal is to help collectors make informed decisions about investment in various card collections.  

The Box Breaks page can be accessed from the PriceGuide.cards home page under the “Stats” section.   Click 'READ MORE' below to continue reading...

This page gives a convenient summary of a collection's statistics in the trading card marketplace:-

2

 

No. 1:  Expected Box Value Breakdown Overview
Based on the manufacturer's insert ratios and actual sales values of the manufacturer's autograph cards, memorabilia cards and combo auto/memo cards from the associated collection, the overview screen shows the statistical average box value broken down across the different types of card.

For actual sales values of Autograph cards, Memorabilia cards and Combo auto/memo cards from this and other soccer collections, use the home page search functions)

 

No. 2:  Retail Price
The above information can be compared with the retail price of the hobby box [No. 2].

 

No. 3 Return on Investment (ROI)
The ROI column [No. 3] provides a convenient summary of ‘return on investment’ based on the original retail price of the hobby box where 100% is the breakeven point.  To personalise it for the price you paid a different number can be entered for your box price, you can simply hit the 'Re-Calc' button and your individual ROI and stats will be adjusted accordingly.

 

Expected Box Break Value Chart
The expected box break value page provides a historical summary of the selected box’s aftermarket value. The area shaded in green marks the price that is higher than the box’s original retail price. This feature helps users identify price trends of the collection.

Expected Box Break Value by Card Type Chart
The ‘expected box break value by card type’ page separates the value of the collection based on autograph cards, memorabilia cards and combo autograph - memorabilia cards.

 

4

 

Secondary Market Box Sales Chart
For collections where there have been whole box sales recorded on the secondry market an additional chart is shown that tracks the price they sold for over time. Secondary Market Box price movements can be incorporated within the expected return and ROI charts with a shareable link.

 

6

 

Return on Investment Chart
In addition to the ‘expected box break value page’, the ‘return on investment’ page shows, over time, a box’s return on investment based on only autograph and memorabilia cards that were pulled from the box.

New Wrestling Card Price Guide

Written by Tom

Hello Everyone,

The latest addition to PriceGuide.Cards is Wrestling.


The coverage is limited at the moment but soon it will expand to cover all the WWF, WWE Wrestling cards ever produced.

I'm looking for other people in the trading card community to get involed with this price guide. I'm no wrestling card expert my forte is Soccer cards, so get in touch.


I've deciced to kick off with two classic sets by Topps. Appropriactly the first set was the first to be licensed by the WWF - 1985 Topps WWF Pro Wrestling Stars. Following it up two years later is 1987 Topps WWF.

Now that the WWE has distanced it's self from Hulk Hogan it looks like dedicated insert sets of his will become a thing of the past. Keep watching these early Hulk Hogan cards for price rices.

Cheers!

 

UPDATE

A number of more recent wrestling collections have been included you can browse through these on the home page search tool or check out each collections indivdual page here.

Website Development and New Sports!

Written by Tom

It’s been a while since my last blog post, as you may have noticed the site has undergone some significant changes. Most notably, the site is now not only focused on Soccer trading cards, also in the database are collections for Baseball, Basketball, American Football and Hockey. I have started by adding in the most recent releases for all of these collections, there are about 130 different collections on PriceGuide.Cards now with a total of almost 400,000 different cards.

 

 

 
The other big changes have been the revamp of the charts on the home page. New features include:


•    Zoomable charts
•    Interactive tooltips
•    Summary statistics below the chart
•    Legend
•    Social media integration
•    Image export for posting on forums

Blog-Update


In response to such great feedback I received for the post I did on estimated short prints in the Panini World Cup Soccer I am developing a tool for use on any collection that can do this function.

Stay tuned for futher developments of PriceGuide.Cards

 PWC14-S-S-S-PEL

Some useful statistics that PriceGuide.Cards is able to produce, besides only charts of football card values, is insight into the short prints that were produced in a collection.
