Regardless of the actual argument that was going on and whether you agree or disagree of the value of the card.
Well, if one just sold last April for $50 and one just sold for $25, WITH A SMUDGED AUTO, than I would say that the book value of $100 is appropriate. Cards generally bring anywhere from 25-50% of high book, and that is what that Mills SPA auto/99 has been bringing.
So, when I first stated that the card had a book value of $100, it was a valid comment, because the card is bringing a normal percentage of what a typical card brings...
Wow, just wow. You are saying that book value is correct if the card actually sells for 25-50% of that value? Shouldn't the book value reflect the actual value of the card? That is so illogical. How is that appropriate? Someone picks up a Beckett to find out what they could reasonably expect to pay or conversely sell a card for, in this case $100. The card actually brings $25-$50. How could one expect book value to carry any weight?
By that logic Beckett should find actual sale prices on cards and either double or quintuple them to get the book price? You realize that is what you are saying.
