Mickey Mantle, make way for Sam Zoldak.
The Mick's cards are still bringing big dollars online, but don't dismiss those pesky low pop cards, Hall of Famers in high grade or complete sets. That's a brief summary of the vintage sports card market over the last seven days.
With the catalog auction market relatively quiet, Sports Collectors Daily tracked the top-selling vintage baseball card lots on eBay last week. There were no known five figure sales, but a 1953 Topps Mickey Mantle, graded SGC 88 (NM/MT) sold for $9,880 to lead the pack. Three Mantle cards were among the top 10 sales for the period.
