Baseball Price Guide History - 1974 Topps Baseball Set

About once a month Wrigley Wax (check it out) presents the average price of Topps sets (1969-present) sold on ebay.  I have decided to compare that with what price guides have listed the sets for over the years. Second set up is 1974 Topps Baseball Set. (listed by year, source, price)

1982 Renata Galasso                          $110.00
8/1985 Baseball Cards Mag               $68-150.00
11/1988 Baseball Cards Mag             $350.00
10/1996 SportsCards                          $600.00
10/1998 SportsCards                          $550.00
2/2005 Beckett Baseball                    $250-400.00
2/2009 Beckett Baseball                    $200-400.00
11/10 Ebay 12 month average           $209.00 (Wrigley Wax 12 month history through 12/1)

The numbers again are interesting. The 1974  set had been selling at $400.00  less than it listed at 14 years ago. Wow. Note Beckett states there Was a factory set produced in 1974, Which is listed for a higher price.
