The recent sale of the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle SGC 9.5 for over $12 million ignited some discussion about other cards that could potentially reach the $10 million threshold should they come on the market. The one most point to is one of the three existing PSA 10 copies of that same ’52 Mantle, which some believe could reach $30 million.

Pretty nice gesture from Albert Pujols over the weekend…
Matt and Samantha Brown caught Pujols’s 697th homer. Samantha’s
father passed away one year ago today. They met with Albert to give him the ball back — he told them to keep it and signed two more for them. Said it would mean more to her than to him. pic.twitter.com/FuXXFiYCIa

Bills quarterback Josh Allen is a popular target for autograph seekers and while he can’t always sign, he says he tries to sign for kids as often as possible, because he used to be one of those kids.
Allen grew up in the Bay Area as a big fan of the Giants and 49ers and told a good story about getting Buster Posey’s autograph.
Like countless other kids, Facebook and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg had his own Little League baseball card. Now, a signed copy of up for auction, along with an NFT of the card.
Long before Zuckerberg revolutionized social media and became the world’s fifth richest person, he was an 8-year-old kid who loved baseball. The trading cards were a novelty offered to local little leaguers’ families in Westchester County, NY.
Zuckerberg gifted the card to his favorite camp counselor, Allie Tarantino, who playfully asked the young Zuck to sign it, like a real baseball player. Zuckerberg enthusiastically agreed and now, 30 years later, the card has resurfaced.
“There’s nothing remotely like it,” says Stephen Fishler, co-owner of ComicConnect.com. “Mark Zuckerberg has impacted our culture more than every MLB and NBA player combined—and this card is truly one of a kind.”
The brief double auction will take place from September 24-25.
Topps will have an NFT version of 2022 Pristine Baseball. Packs will go on sale Thursday.
“With Topps Pristine being a very popular product among the collecting community for quite some time, we felt it was the perfect set to reimagine as an NFT collecting experience,” says Tobin Lent, VP & Global General Manager of Topps Digital.
There will be 9,000 standard packs made. They’ll have 4 “cards” and cost $20. Premium packs, with 10 NFT cards, are $85 and limited to 7,000 total packs.
