CJ Stroud card selling strategy. Tried re-listing it a few times in 10 day auctions at a starting price of $29.99. ZERO Bids. Lowered the starting bid to $9.99 with 2 days left. Card sold for $41, yielding a 50% profit. Lowering the bid works.
$35 - $22 = $13 profit

Junior Caminero SGC 10/10 - bought from Rusty Immegart a couple months ago for $200
$279 after fees - $200 = $79 profit

L - Missed 30 minutes of the show this morning.
W - Got into a prospect that wasn’t inflated - Jace Jung. His teams are excelling! Piastri, Verstappen. Rangers are up 2 to 0 against Orioles.
B - Lionel Messi. Messi will not have postseason coverage in the MLS playoffs. Messi has been injured, and his team has missed the playoffs. Projectable outcomes in the next 12 months. Also James, Jace, and Mbappe.

L - NBA preseason is disappointing.
W - bought a 2022 Tua Tagovailoa Bowman 1st Green Auto #/99 raw 6 months ago for $7. Sent it in to PSA for $19 and it came back a PSA 9 so $26 invested sold on a 7 day auction last Monday night for $42 buyer never paid. I was hoping for $55 so I was a bit disappointed in what it sold for as well as that the buyer didn't pay. Re-listed as BIN for $55 and sold it for $52 this weekend.
B - This past week purchases. (2) Jace Jung Bowman 1st chrome base auto PSA 10’s for $125 each, James Wood Bowman Chrome 1st base auto $150, (10) bowman chrome 1st base Jackson Holliday card lot $208, Justin Fields silver prizm rookie PSA 10 $350, (3) prizm base Paolo Banchero rookie PSA 10’s $50 each, Jackson Holliday bowman chrome 1st base auto raw $450, Xavier Isaac bowman chrome green shimmer 1st auto raw $150, cam collier bowman chrome 1st auto base PSA 10 $95, Jalen Brunson silver prizm rookie PSA 10 $95, 2013 Giannis NBA hoops red back PSA 10 $350, joe burrow field level silver PSA 10 $775, Zion Williamson select concourse silver PSA 10 $150

S - continue to sell off any baseball players still in the playoffs if you have any, 2017 score Patrick Mahomes PSA 10 this is a college uniform card that sells consistently for around $200-$250 this week a 300+% increase with a sale for $955 even if something weird on that sale it will make the next few sales for sure higher than typical take advantage if you have this card, keep an eye on Ja’marr Chase card prices with his monster performance this week could be a sell opportunity this week
