20% Off at SteinerSport.com. Code: SPORTS20

A Michigan dealer says he just brokered a deal that ended with the highest price ever paid for a PSA 7 graded 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle.

Kirk Wagonlander told The Ticker that the card changed hands between two “known figures in the hobby” at a price of $55,000.  That’s $12,000 more than the card was sold for two years ago according to the Traverse City dealer.

Most PSA 7 Mantle cards sell at auction in the $30-40,000 range but this one offers centering and eye appeal that would appeal to collectors.

Upper Deck’s Fleer Retro Basketball has been quite a hit with some eye-popping prices for some of the inserts and autographs.  And no, a card doesn’t always have to be autographed to bring bidders to the table.

Check out the current price on this Michael Jordan Precious Metal Gems card--and it won't close until this weekend.

Two weeks ago, a LeBron James card of this same ilk sold for $12,100.
