You should take a look at some football stuff, they draw a price out of a hat and then, that is what it is worth. From my experience, with upper deck products, all prices are automatically given a boost because of all the money that is spent on ads.

Isnt it kind of weird that the magazine that prices cards for the stupid part of hobby (around 75-80%) also takes ad revenues? That could be the biggest conflict of interest in the history of conflicts of interest.

Not only that but isn't it interesting how BGS graded card are worth more in their title than PSA when we all know the truth talk about conflicts of interest
