Do you guys think that CE plastic is going to get more and more valuable? Or do you think it is going to hit a plateau where people are only going to pay so much for a disc, since mainly the only people buying these discs are the older veterans that used to throw them?

i don't think it's the "veterans" who are driving the market... i think it's the newer enthusiasts who can't resist what they have heard was the bees knees....

True, so what do you think will happen with prices? Increase, decrease, plateau?

i doubt they will decrease unless someone comes out with a better plastic and kills the market- similar to ce killing the market for older stuff. unless that happens supplies will continue to dwindle which should keep the prices up. i don't really expect them to get too much higher either though...

I toss them and I am only 27. However, I do like them from way back when I threw them while they are in production. They will reach a ceiling but it's one of those things you just can't forsee. I don't think many though 10x KC Aviars would reach over the $100 mark a few years ago.

As far as the market goes, prices are going to rise since petroleum is a dwindling resource.

Are few more new goodies. I am expecting 2 more Eagles in the mail some time next week, so I will post those when they get in. I cant get enough CE plastic! I know the buzzz's arent CE, but I saw a nice collection of some bar stamps a few pages back. They are still pretty IMO.

That is something I have wondered myself. IMO, the CE that will be the most valuable and continue to rise in price is NEW CE, especially 1st and 2nd runs. Every time someone throws a mint red 1st run TB it is reasonable to think that your new one in a storage bin will go up in value. Really who knows, it is kind of crazy how much some people, myself included, spend on plastic.

The most valuable discs are going to be new ones! I totally agree with you. This will especially be true regarding the 1st Runs. However, the value rising will also depend on what people are tossing in the future. Right now the Firebird, Teebird and Valk are still in peoples bags. If those discs become less popular then you may not see a huge increase in price. Personally I think the Firebird and Teebirds are probably exempt from this equation but Eagles and Valks could be less popular to future generation disc golfers.

I also think the harder to find CE Discs such as CE Aviars will have an even higher value possibly because there are going to be less of them in new condition.
