Today's card is another 2013 Topps Chrome Football Shortprint Rc

Here is today's addition, a 2013 Topps Chrome #218B Mike Glennon RC. This is an interesting pickup because I'm finding that these cards are commonly selling for .99 cents plus shipping, a deal you'd never be able to find in a card shop. The demand on these shortprints is extremely low, especially now that the 2014 cards are out for people to chase. The trend I've noticed is that for all cards except for the really popular players values plummet a few weeks after release. I am pretty sure this is due to all the overproduction and over saturation of the market with hundreds of thousands of different football cards being released every season. After about 20 years you start to see values slowly pick up, once a set is 50 years old I think you see drastic increases, even commons from that many years ago are typically a few dollars. The lesson here is hang on to your cards. They might not be valuable right now but many years down the road that could change.
