His brother-in-law alerted him to the recent boom in sports card prices and Chris got in touch with Goldin Auctions, where the newly graded PSA 7 card is expected to fetch at least $250,000.

Project 2020 may be over, but Topps’ collaborations with its artists aren’t.
The company will launch a special set of 1951 Red/Blue Back style cards created by Blake Jamieson this week.
Each week in January, 13 newly designed cards will be offered. The four subsets will create a 52-card complete set, just like the originals.
Parallel backs are possible in each 13-card pack along with artist cards numbered to 25.
