As we reported earlier this week, bidding was topped by an all-PSA 10 1986-87 Fleer set including the Michael Jordan rookie card that sold for $216,000. Three high-grade 1933 Goudey Sport Kings all topped the six-figure mark.
“The strength of the sports market in the midst of a global pandemic speaks to the stability of the market, with vintage trading cards leading the charge,” stated Director of Sports Auctions Chris Ivy.
Over the weekend, a BGS 9.5 Green RPA Mahomes from National Treasures numbered 6/15 went for $40,000. On Monday, a Contenders Cracked Ice Rookie Ticket numbered to 25, netted $35,100.

Want to buy an NHL postseason jersey and then watch it being worn on the ice?
MeiGray, which has partnerships with six Stanley Cup playoff teams, is once again offering the chance for collectors to pre order game-worn jerseys.
Some teams, including Washington, Boston and Nashville, are starting the playoffs with new jerseys while others will wear jerseys donned during the tail end of the regular season and carried into the first round. Some will employ new “Set 3” jerseys at some point during the postseason.
If you pre-order a jersey before the end of that team’s best-of-five qualifier or round-robin games, and your team reaches the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, MeiGray is tossing back a $100 credit towards a 2020 Stanley Cup Final game-worn jersey.
