It’s a 1990s name, but the price is definitely 2019.
A 1996 Select Certified Mirror Gold rookie card of Derek Jeter graded PSA 10 sold for a whopping $202,102 at auction late last week. The first of two 10s awarded by PSA in the 23 years since the card was produced as a rare insert, the card generated 88 bids in an auction conducted by PWCC. Interested bidders were required to be pre-qualified.
Only 30 serial numbered Mirror Gold cards of 144 different players were produced. Only one in 300 packs of Select Certified held a Mirror Gold insert.
The Jeter Mirror Gold is considered his ‘holy grail’ card and only a few have ever been sold at public auction. A PSA 8 went for $18,350 in 2016, while a pair of PSA 9s sold several years ago for $2,719 and $4,055.
A big day for Aaron Rodgers on Sunday. He threw for over 500 yards and had five touchdown passes against the Raiders. He also ran for another. One of those tosses was the 350th of his career. So what happened to #100? Ask the guy who caught it…
Congrats @AaronRodgers12 on your 350th TD pass! I still owe you for throwing your 100th in the stands?
