Question
: I pulled a 09-10 Absolute Memorabilia Lebron James Frequent Flyer Prime, with a rainbow effect and it is number 1/5 on the back.  It has white red and gold colors in the jersey.  I cant find how much it is anywhere.  Can you help me price it?

Answer: Thanks for the e-mail, I'll try to give you a range - but its tough because its so low numbered + multi color, plus its #1/5 so that adds a very slight premium as well (which is good :)

Not too many multi-color LeBron cards on eBay, there was one Absolute that ended a few weeks ago for $52.50 on a Best Offer - it was a nice card #/10...multi color patch, but it almost looked 'fake' to me because the patch was almost too nice.

Looked through most of LeBron's stuff, most of it is one color -- depending on the size, and if those are Patches from the jersey and not just fabric colors ... you might get between $60 - $80 on eBay. I can't see it selling for more than $80 unless LeBron/Heat are red-hot, but I could be wrong.

That's eBay, if you find a fan or a collector that really needs that card - you can probably get $100+ in Trade Value if they really want it, because that particular card doesn't pop up for sale very often (probably less than 5 times I guess) If you find a collector that really wants it, they might even give you $100 cash for it, just depends on what kind of collection they are trying to build.

Hope that helps, if you sell it online, throw up some good photos front/back as that will help you sale even if you've got to pay an extra fee for them.


Question
: You probably already know this but  card # 40 is Luke Schenn and not Caputi.

Answer: Appreciate this - I updated the Donruss Hockey page. If you ever see any other errors (we try to not make too many:) please feel free to contact us. Thanks again,

Question: Can you please tell me what the difference between these 2010 Bowman Chrome Base and Refractors are?   I cant call it..... There is no difference in the image at all. The only thing that is different is The word "REFRACTOR"?

Answer: That is correct - there is not much difference between the base cards - and the refractor cards. They did a little better job with those in years past - the refractor cards really stood out when you were opening a pack because it kind of "refracted" light and you'd get kind of a rainbow effect from the gloss.

No picture changes on the refractor cards. They've now since gone to all kinds of variations for those, the most popular of course being the 1/1 Superfractors.

It's hard for me to pick out refractor cards now without looking at the back to make sure it says it on the card. I've heard that Topps might use a different printer for the 2011 versions and maybe that will restore some of the "refractness" from years past.

Let me know if you have any other questions about Bowman Chrome cards or any other set.

Question: On the 2010 Certified Football checklist you guys just say (not everyone has one) for the mirror gold patches. I was wondering which players don't, or preferably the list of those who do, im putting together the set, thanks

Answer:  Here is a list for the Gold Jersey Cards - let me know if this is the parallel set you are trying to build. Best of luck on your quest, let me know if you need any further help.
