you know what i'm thinking about it bro
Yep. Saw that last night. Well....we all know the aura around the Jordan Romeo's and that usually drives the price, but its not uncommon to see Jordan Romeo's at $800 to $1,000 and they don't sell. So why this one? I think two very minor things are actually causing people to bid this up- 1) the box. Yes its dogeared but we all know that the COMPLETE package increases value to collectors; this is especially true to Romeo's because the serial on the box matches the frame 2) the picture and stand. I wouldn't be surprised if that picture and stand are a driving many people's bids.....collectors like a ready to go display set and this is it-box, picture, brand new.
Personally, the value of the Jordan Romeo is valuable only to the die hard collector because you can easily replicate the look with an X Metal frame, custom cuts and rubber (I considered it on mine before I went with red rubber and Ruby instead) for $500.
Yeah, you're right, but also what really calls to my attention is the number: is 7XXX so, correct me if I'm wrong, but Jordan is called only to those under 5K
but the things is jordan are 5000 and lower
this one is 77xx
Should it say if their jordan's on the box?
That's never been my understanding....its been that ANY 4 digit serial Romeo is a Jordan-I've read this multiple places and its also supported by O-Reviews Serial list
Yea Jordan Romeos are xxxx serials normals are xxxxxx serials.
Does that mean that at least 5,000 of these were produced or did they pick up after a different style romeo and start from there?
I would venture to say 9999 Jordan Romeos were made. Then the serial numbers reset or continued on with 6 digits.
