One of two BGS Pristine 10 BGS 10 Black Label copies of Kobe Bryant’s 1996-97 Topps Chrome Refractor rookie card will sell for at least a seven-figure price while newly crowned Super Bowl champion Tom Brady got his own section in Goldin Auctions’ 2021 Winter Auction.
The newly launched catalog also includes a Michael Jordan jersey from a rookie year photo shoot, hundreds of high-end modern and vintage cards as well as more historic game-used items from the collection of Cal Ripken Jr.
“The Winter Auction appears to be one of our most prolific auctions to date. We expect to surpass the $33 million record breaking auction result from our Elite Auction that just concluded only a few weeks ago.” says Goldin Auctions Founder Ken Goldin.
Bidding for the Bryant card has already passed $1 million with the buyer’s premium factored in but if early bidding is any indication, multiple items are likely to broach that mark.
