2010 Razor Rookie Retro has been released and has brought up some interesting discussions.
I found one on Freedom Cardboard about a break that was posted on Blowout Cards forum (phew - that’s a lot of clicking).
I’ll break down the discussion.
A man on Blowout busted a box of this and apparently received a 2005 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks Colby Rasmus refractor autograph BGS 8.5 (there was no pics provided). It’s probably one of the cheaper cards in the set, resale-wise, especially because it grades at an 8.5.
On the secondary market (auction links), an 8.5 grade may only sell for $25-$35 of this card.
This card would likely sell for more money raw. Raw might get an extra $10-$20 on the refractor because the seller would hope for a higher grade than an 8.5.
Here are the options if you are not keeping the card.
1. Resell the card as the 8.5 and hope to get some money back.
2. Crack the card out of its slab and resell the card raw, but state the card graded as an 8.5.
3. Crack the card and resell raw, but make no mention that the card was previously graded.
What would you do with this card?
