The NFL Sports Cards Market Weekly playBYplay by prospectsrus
In week 3, the NFL saw a few big performers. Today, we are going to focus on two quarterbacks; Patrick Mahomes and Nick Foles.
Patrick Mahomes crushed the Ravens on Sunday. Since the game started, about 700 buy it nows on eBay were sold. [Look for Patrick Mahomes rookie cards on eBay]
This sports cards market continues to show that even with Mahomes being the best quarterback in the NFL, a little reminder (for some) is never a bad thing even though we should not need it.
On the other end, Nick Foles jumped from the bench and played Superman again. With a ring already under his belt, around 330 buy it nows were sold on eBay after his big win. Before this, eBay would be lucky to have a few sales of Foles during any given day. [Look for Nick Foles rookie cards on eBay]
Two quarterbacks, one ring each.
What was your favorite week 3 performance? Whose cards would you choose?
OMG MY MONEY Editorial Opinion: hi all, every week as Adam provides his analysis, I will provide an op-ed piece to share my personal thoughts. This is not meant to be investment advice.
I personally missed the boat on Mahomes. Every time I think Mahomes cannot go any higher, Mahomes sets the sports card world on fire and I am incorrect once again and his cards keep climbing. It is to the point now that I have given up on acquiring Mahomes although I said the same about Giannis Antetokounmpo and ended up acquiring some of his 2013-14 auto rcs. I mean how could a player so young keep building on this momentum 5-10 years from now so that his card prices stay afloat. I always figured that his sports card price decline will happen much sooner rather than later, but proves me wrong literally every year.
Nick Foles on the other hand is a hard pass. I cashed out on Foles several years ago and have no intentions of investing in a Bears QB. If he makes another run at the Super Bowl, then I will be the first to say, I was wrong. The risk is too high and there are literally hundreds of better investments than Foles.
