Last year we took a look at 2011 Topps & Bowman Case prices at years end. I got some feedback that prices during the release date window or 'peak' selling season might give a more accurate reflection of the kind of profit you can make. So I've added both the 4 weeks after release High/Low prices & the December year end prices.

At the time of writing this, some sets had only been out for about a month, so the data only reflects the release date window prices.

Remember that even modest profits above do not reflect costs of doing business. From what I've heard, getting an eBay Power Seller Discount is often the difference between making money and loosing money for some sellers.

I do all my historical eBay Research here .
