I'm with coolio on this one. A $10K collection isn't huge at all and if someone with that sized collection is looking to sell out at a discount the market will safely absorb it in a heart beat.

If SCG or Card Kingdom or one of the other big sites decided to sell out, then the market has a problem.

More than that, what kingtal0n thinks is a revelation is something many others have known for a long time (using microscopes, jeweler's loupes, etc to look at card patterns). Like really old info. It's been posted here and all over the internet numerous times.

I equate him to some guy who just learned that he shouldn't send massive amounts of money via PayPal overseas to someone with 0 refs. Good job. Where do you want your cookie mailed?

You are insinuating that what I "discovered" is just plain common knowledge. It might be for you, and I, but everybody and nobody else in common is paying that much attention cards under microscopes, for example microscopic images of MTG cards in ebay auctions is never seen. Because everybody is assuming they are "real", when in fact the card quality (gradings, NM, NM+, SP-, EX etc...) all have to do with visual aspects, when in fact the price is actually guided by visual aspects.
