Greg, I remember a PSA 8 Howe on Ebay a few years ago that sold for $4,500. I passed it up at the time and I regret it now for obvious reasons. I am not surprised at the price because the card in this grade doesn't come up often. I think if one came up right after this on it might sell for a little less. If you follow what some of his 60's cards go for in 8's and 9's then you shouldn't be surprised at this sale. Gordie Howe will always sell for a premium.

I think one in the future on Ebay will sell for $8-10k on a good night. I cannot spare that much but if I did it would probably be on a Vezina or Morenz.

Colin, I think that the Howe sale along with the sale you supplied shows us how much and how fast our market is growing.

Growing market for sure !

As the last message stated, i totally agree with the fact that the vintage card market is growing. Especially the graded market which still quite new. Many example can be shown and i beleive all of us here can notice it. Last year, i had a conversation with another collector and friend of mine and we ask ourselves some questions: For example, Can 2-3 person can have a direct impact on the market for a specifiq set or specifiq cards? As time told us, we can respond in the affirmative way. Each new person and/or collector with some relative ambition can have an impact. As far as i know, the number of serious vintage colletors can only grow and due to a relative scarcity of quality vintage hockey cards, prices follow accordingly to the numbers of potential buyers. I certainly beleive that the market will be more than healthy in the next decade. Especially when you see the amount beeing paid for recent set.
