What did Tom Brady think of the $400,000 sale of that 2000 Contenders Championship Ticket card? He (or his social media person) responded on Instagram…
Brady will actually add some straight cash to his bank account next month when he does another private signing for TRISTAR Productions. Autographs start at around $1,000 each.
When Burbank Sports cards received feedback for selling a 2000 Bowman Chrome Teen Idols Refractors #TI3 Juan Gonzalez this week, it was the 25,000th thumbs up this month alone from its eBay customers…and February isn’t over.
Owner Rob Veres says his company has been selling anything and everything but their core customer base remains regular Joes buying 99-cent cards to finish off a set or add to their player collections.
Within minutes on Tuesday, they’d received feedback for everything from 1989-90 L.A. Kings Smokey the Bear cards to a couple of 1961 Topps commons. One buyer purchased a dozen Bobby Murcer cards from the 1970s and 80s. Another snared some NASCAR autographed cards from 2017.
The company measures its massive inventory in the millions, with much of it listed in their eBay store.
Only ten other sellers on the entire platform ship more items than Burbank, according to Veres, who says he’s hoping the monthly number might reach 50,000 by the National Sports Collectors Convention in late July.
Over the last 12 months, the company’s feedback stands at nearly 225,000.
Another big bucks rookie card sale. This time it was a 2005 Upper Deck The Cup Rookie Sidney Crosby auto patch numbered to 99 and graded 9.5 by Beckett.
The card sold late Tuesday night on eBay for just over $80,000.
Open a pack of 1986 Topps football and you’ve got about a 1 in 23.3 percent chance of landing a Jerry Rice rookie card. There were a whopping 17 cards per pack back and the set contained 396 cards with no short prints.
But what are the chances of this?
Unfortunately one of the cards is poorly cut but the best card in the set appearing twice in the same pack is something you don’t see every day, let alone a card considered among the most popular cards ever created.
Weird stuff does happen when you open old packs, though. Vintage Breaks once opened a 1961 Topps cello and found three Whitey Ford cards.
By the way…they’ll be opening a 1955 Bowman pack from Mr. Mint’s “Paris, TN Find” tonight at 9 PM Eastern time. Watch on the SC Daily Facebook page.
