Last week’s auction of the Dmitri Young collection of PSA 10 rookie cards created some dizzying new sales figures. Several of his vintage baseball cards vaulted well past $100,000 including a 1954 Hank Aaron and 1955 Roberto Clemente which sold for more than $1/2 million combined.
What about the everyman market for PSA 10s? What are some of the top selling cards graced with PSA’s rare ‘gem mint’ label on eBay? We’ve tracked the top selling PSA 10 cards from all sports over the last 90 days and the results might be different than you’d expect. Just one baseball card made the list but it’s a virtual Michael Jordan checklist.
Retirement deep in the rearview mirror, Jordan still dominates the basketball card market and the number of collectors chasing his rare insert cards from any era of his career, but especially the 90s, makes for competitive bidding. Four of the top five PSA 10 card sales on eBay since late March involve some kind of MJ card. His rookie is popular, but plentiful compared to some of the insert cards that drive Jordan collectors batty.
Here’s the list of Top 10 eBay Sales of PSA 10 cards over the last 90 days:
1. 1997-98 Skybox Premium Star Rubies Michael Jordan $13,665
2. 1996 Skybox E-X 2000 Credentials Masterpiece Michael Jordan $8,400
