No its not a fact, but a unbias opinion. Here is why think back when packs no matter if hobby or retail you could turn it over and see the odds of what you could pull, kinda like the lottery cards but they took that away and now you might see a list of what inserts are out there or you may have to hop on the computer to see what a product contains. Now think back when the jersey cards came out most were like 1:150,000 packs they were big hits that everyone strived for beyond the rookie or favorite play always saying this is that pack that will have my favorite players jersey card if was lucky enough to make the set . Here is an example*this is for just a common pull not a 1 of 1 or numbered low card* in 2000 upperdeck made the first ones of the jersey cards and I will use brett farve as the example at that time he was still in his prime and is arguably one of the best to play the game as we speak its beckett value is $60 a good pull for a non rookie card since tom bradys rookies are like $50 and up to $100's but go foward to what the memrobilia card is valued now for a same type and the only one that pops into mind of dissatisfation is the 2007 ultra collection of jersey cards same play only worth $20 in multiple sets that the product put out that year a big drop and not good. now also back in 2000 for that upper deck pack you paid 2.99 or 10.00 depending if retail or hobby kinda had a slim diffrence in the ratio but in 2007 ultra 2.99 retail and harder to pull jersey card or 25.00 garentee hit in hobby now if not a brett fan in any way this would be a major bust unless you have a friend that is or the shop know someone that will be willing to trade or buy now the kicker of the 2007 ultra set the highest priced memrobilia card that is not numbered is $25 yeah it has some higher valued cards in that department but this in not on low numbered cards if you get the gold version of brett it jumps it to $50. Now what could bring the memrobilia card back to a frenzy one company is doing it placing the date and who played that day its a high end product but brings a more collective side to it. think how it would feel (being a Bears fan) that if you went to a game and pulled a player from your team that had the date you went to the game, or the superbowl when Devin Hester ran back the opening kick off for the first TD in superbowl history and thats a part of the jersey or even the relic cards say like the jets Joe Namath's championship jersey with a date of course they will be a low numbered something like of 25 or a rare 1 of 1 but thats what would bring the memrobilia card back to surface. as for autos there great now cause with the rookies and other possibilities out there even the vets are better pulls but one dissapointment leaf draft great on card autos but extremely low end cause some players that are autos unless you are a die hard fan of the specific university they as valuable as your signature yes very dissapointed first auto pulled from the leaf draft was a fozzy whitaker now i know i would have set myself up for a disapointment if i was looking for rg3 but thats a long shot card but heck get only the players that WILL be in a NFL Uniform at least i guess thats why its low end.
thanks for reading my first guide/review/rant/opinion if you like rate please if agreed or disagree feel free to write me but i feel that if the company wants to know what the consumer wants this would be it for he memrobilia cards thanks again
