One of the 22 PSA 10 1993 Upper Deck SP Derek Jeter foil rookie cards sold for a record price of $99,100 on Wednesday night.
The card beat the old mark of $54,576 set early in 2017.
Bidding for the card offered by PWCC Auctions soared from $67,500 late in the afternoon to the eventual winning bid.
There’s been a new addition to the 1910 Nadja Caramels set. SC Daily writer Anson Whaley corresponded with a collector who has a Fred Tenney card. No others have emerged since the one he purchased at a St. Louis show in the 1980s and the Tenney isn’t included in popular vintage card guides.
The Tenney appears to be part of the E104-3 series, the third of three Nadja subsets that made up the issue. The first two included members of the Philadelphia Athletics (E104-1) and Pittsburgh Pirates (E104-2). The third set included players on various teams.
