A PSA 6 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle sold for a record $300,000 in Heritage Auctions’ Sports Card Catalog Auction late last week. The price blew past the old mark of $209,100 set in April of 2021.Heritage also sold an SGC 4 for $102,000.
One of the 28 PSA 8 copies of the 1938 Goudey Heads Up Joe DiMaggio rookie card sold for a record $87,000 in the auction while a PSA 9 (none higher) 1941 Play Ball Ted Williams netted $192,000 and a 1979-80 O-Pee-Chee Wayne Gretzky went for $132,000.
After multiple seven-figure sales over the last two years, including two of over $2 million, the power of the 2000 Playoff Contenders Tom Brady Championship Ticket rookie card appears to be waning. Heritage sold a BGS 8.5/10 example for $885,000. Not a good sign for those who paid more than double that not so long ago, but still well ahead of the $225,000 range where the card stood in 2019.
Bidding for the T206 Honus Wagner (PSA 1.5) in Goldin’s current auction has now reached $2.9 million. The same card was offered in May of 2021 and sold for $2.25 million so the buyer will net a nice profit for a short term flip.
Twenty-five bids have been entered for the card with bidding set to run through this Saturday.
Pristine Auctions has partnered with Beckett Grading. Collectors can submit directly to Pristine, which will handle the submission process and then list the graded cards for sale on its platform.
