emails go out Friday to tell people they have (cough) got a set of Scanlens... so then ... how soon after Friday.. or will it be after :lol: that the first lot of Scanlens are on ebay.....

obviously they will "Sell Out" within a second... and the pics can be nicked off the web anyway.. so any ideas?

Or will they wait... till they know the number on the card...

so they are that popular even at that price??
Will most be resold or are collectors the main buyers?

ok this might sound stupid but where does select get off charging that much for a set...
I mean how much could it possiably cost to make, there is little to no advertisment, not much packaging etc etc...
The mark up would be HUGE

definately ... it is a rip off ... and the rip off will continue all the way to ebay...

everything is only worth what someone will pay for it .. thats just how it is... Select have pulled the figure from their... um.. lol .. and now that has set the base price... each card is now worth 86 min etc...

therefore, when they run out... they are rarer still as there is no more supply ... however ... scarcity and demand take over ... the demand alone could multiply a card value many times over .. then how many are on ebay at any one time will then multiply or deduct from that equation...

lets face it ... they are a licence to print money... thats why everyone has their name in ... hoping to pay 2750 .. cause they wont be that cheap (lol) again ... or hoping to make heaps of $ - or at least make enough to pay for the ones they want to keep.

yer i agree for sure... it would take people to refuse to pay that much for it to ever change but everyone knos that would happen...

lol that was going to be my next question, $2750 where did that figure come from!!! lol

the worry with this set, is simply what are they going to do in the future.. these are the " inaugural Select Scanlens set" so what will the next ones be ... how much? how many will there be? and whats to say the same old people dont end up with the majority of them...

then you have yet another set coming out ... these are the 1966 "Flag Series" Football Cards, the launch of that website has been coming so long I think the person running it has died of exhaustion... :lol:

what are they going to cost - my money is on 5k ... they will watch what happens with this lot .. then they will finally let us know ... hmm .. money money money..
