    What makes a card the “right card?” Is it number of sales? What percentage a card is down compared to what the ceiling was? Thanks!

      Hey Rob! Great question.

      You’re definitely in the right ballpark – there are a lot of different characteristics to that pile together to form the “right card”

      i.e. demand, liquidity, sales volume, a dip in pricing, overall desirability, accessibility for purchase, historically proven upside, and more!

      Definitely shoot us a question for the Overflow Show if you want this elaborated on in a deeper understanding!
