53 years after it was inserted into a pack at the Topps factory, this card still looks about the same as it did that day.
A 1954 Topps Willie Mays graded PSA 9 (mint) found a new home on eBay Sunday night.
The high grade vintage market continues to be strong with one solid copy selling for $10, 099.
The card drew 16 bidders for the Cleveland based seller and outpaced a PSA 9 sold just over a week ago for just under $9,000 by Mastro Auctions.
So how many PSA 9 ’54 Mays cards are there? According to the PSA population report, nine of over 1300 cards graded have reached the mint (unqualified) designation.
