People are paying premiums for '4-claw' stamps which were just stock stamps from 2019ish, so I don't see that being a solutionHopefully mvp rug pulls the resale collectors. Create artificial scarcity after the initial marketing hype then dump surplus on the market. Also I'm still holding out hope they run them in eclipse plastic.
I'm sure these first runs will always command a premium from the weird disc golf disc collectors but if mvp dumps half a million of these on the market next year they'll have won both sides of the market. I don't get the 4 claw thing at all though.People are paying premiums for '4-claw' stamps which were just stock stamps from 2019ish, so I don't see that being a solution
I used to have several mvp vectors, gave them away to locals who are mvp fans. They'll probably be worth the same price I paid for them a decade ago in a decade and this time lapse will be worth 10 bucks with whatever stamp and the first runs will be 500 dollars.I think saturation is inevitable. Look at the JC electron holy shot blue and yellow. They said everyone could have one, that they would make em until everyone who wanted one had one. I think they started at $30 and now you'd be lucky to get $10.
The other problem is that MVPs fan base has probably tripled or quadrupled. There isn't that many OG gyroheads, so the old OOP stuff has little value even though its much more rare. Some of the OG SE's have actually fallen in value with the new fan base. I've seen some melon envys going for less than I paid for mine 5yrs ago.
They are creating their own artificially inflated market.
The thing about this limited release is the stamp. As I understand it, the regular SimonLine runs will not have the three stripes across it. So any other TimeLapse discs that come out will be 'different'. That makes this true limited run more valuable to some people. But will it be worth more than $200 five or ten years from now? I doubt anyone who pays those prices will ever make their money back. Will MVP do a true limited run of the next SimonLine discs? Who knows....I've heard online* that it will only be this disc as it was intended to introduce the SimonLine.I'm sure these first runs will always command a premium from the weird disc golf disc collectors but if mvp dumps half a million of these on the market next year they'll have won both sides of the market.

You don't have to be 'kool-aid drinker' to pay for it. There are many reasons to pay high prices for a disc, when bought first-hand (from the manufacturer or retailer).I feel like you'd have to be quite the kool-aid drinker to pay $40 for a destroyer clone. Every company has one for less.
Also, I dont know how other people feel about it but Simon is not a big attractor for me.
With James Conrad and Guinevere (Madison Walker) representing I was at least happy to spend on the occasional over-mold.
