The crown jewel of early NBA cards is hard to find in any condition. One beauty was up for grabs on eBay.
The 1948-49 Bowman George Mikan rookie card is one vintage basketball collectors can't do without.
The first major basketball set is hard to find in high grade and when there is a Mikan offered, collectors flock to it. A PSA 8 Mikan rookie graded NM/MT 8 by PSA sold this week on eBay for $8,088.
Long-time dealer Kevin Savage Cards, located near Toledo, OH was the seller. Just three bids were made with a starting price of $7,000.
