Summer officially ended Tuesday morning and the final “Summer Auction” of 2020 is over, too.
Goldin Auctions closed out its two-day catalog sale late Monday night, with the sale of a 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospects Mike Trout Orange Refractor Autograph Card for $196,800. Numbered 24/25, the card was graded BGS 9.5/10.
Its closing price followed Sunday night’s sale of the lone BGS 10 copy of the Trout Orange Refractor (#16/25) for $369,000.
A PSA 10 2003/04 Topps Chrome Refractor #111 LeBron James rookie card took runner-up honors in the Monday night session, fetching $59,040.
In all, the two-day auction of over 1,600 lots that generated over $11 million in sales, topped by the sale of a National Treasures Giannis Antetokounmpo Signed NBA Logoman Patch Rookie Card for more than $1.8 million. In all, sixteen items—mostly modern trading cards– netted more than $100,000 including the buyer’s premiums. It was the fourth consecutive Goldin event in which sales topped $10 million.
“We have had an incredible run the past two years,” stated Company Founder Ken Goldin. “We have concentrated on growing our business by bringing new collectors into our community which has resulted in an incredible increase in new users, as well as world-record prices achieved regularly throughout our auctions.”
The company will have another large auction next month and is also taking consignments for another auction, set to open in November.
