Hey Brian,

You may want to add this one to your main post update.

Now that the deal has finally concluded and the item has safely gone many many miles to change hands...

The new current value of a sealed Summer booster pack is
$8000


:dance:

Whoever wishes can now feel free to debate if that price is worth it for a pack that could have been searched at some point (at least for the 1994 date confirmation before getting the green 'E' mark)... But the main point is that searched or not, it is still a sealed Summer pack and therein lies the real value considering how many sealed packs remain in the world. Also good to consider is the double to triple value increase for most Edgar cards over the past 5-6 years, coincidentally since around the same time sealed packs were selling for around 3.5-4k.

Hey,

Was this one of the packs from GP Boston a long while back that was purchased that contained a Summer Bird or Badlands? I think the other was a Badlands although I honestly can't remember.

It very well may have been if it was from a group that was bought by Troll & Toad (that is who I got it from around 6 yrs ago). And as a matter of fact one of the 2 packs I could not resist opening did contain a BOP (now a BGS 9.5 BOP \:D/ ) and the other was a Lord of Atlantis (nudge nudge Clay :-\' ).

So are you saying one of the 3 sealed packs I had contained a Badlands? Which begs the questions: How do you know (I take it the seller at the time searched)? And is it in the pack I just sold? #-o

Oh well the price was very fair in my opinion and best of luck to the new owner although I believe his plan is to keep it sealed for a very very long time.

Of course buddy, it would not have happened without your introduction. Thanks again so much for that.

Let me know when you want to swing by to check out my Beta stuff and I'll put a sweet deal together for you. :wink:

I was told at the show that 3 packs were sold for an amount I will not disclose. I was told by Troll & Toad employees at the time that the buyer requested the packs to be searched but they may have been curious prior to selling them which is more likely.

I just wanted to bump this thread, so if anyone wants to share some recent sales or whatever info, please do so, it would be very informative.

Have been looking on MKM offers regularly for a a few weeks now and it seems that there are popping up more of them now.

But I consider prices requested are quite high.

A user named snoopylittlebirdy has put those now up:
CoP Blue (130 EUR)
Evil Presence (300 EUR)
Howl from Beyond (200 EUR)
Terror (signed, 350 EUR)
Wild Growth (280 EUR)

Just for info...

It's interesting to see how these prices haven't changed much in so many years, while almost everything else old that is remotely playable or collectable is worth way more now.

If DC hadn't been flooding the market for the past 3 years, prices would be much higher currently.

Yes. e.g a NM summer StP (however an unco not a rare, but a chased one) has been sold online around $550 in July, this is almost cheaper that what is paid for an Alpha copy of the card. After all these years collecting summer cards remains a super niche market I guess
