Given an 8.5 rating by PSA, the card sold on eBay. It’s one of fewer than 100 ever graded by PSA and among the top known examples.
Earlier this year, Lelands sold a PSA 9 copy of the same card for just over $204,000, which made it the second highest priced hockey card ever sold.
If you’re in the Cleveland area on Sunday, May 20, there’s a card show to put on your calendar.
The GSM Sportscard Show expects 25-35 dealers from Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan carrying vintage and modern cards and memorabilia. Baseball’s last 30-game winner, Denny McLain, will be there to sign autographs.
Earl’s World Collecting Universe is sponsoring the show, which runs from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Holiday Inn on Royalton Road in Strongsville, OH.
Admission is $1.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers inspecting a shipment from China recently discovered and seized 177 unlicensed pro and college sports rings worth an estimated manufacturer suggested retail price of $11.7 million, had they been genuine.
CBP officials say the seized rings were infringing on the Major League Baseball (MLB), National Football League (NFL), National Hockey League (NHL), and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) trademarks.
“Every day CBP Officers protect the American public and its economy,” said Troy Miller, Director of CBP’s New York Field Office. “This most recent interception of counterfeit sports rings demonstrates the ongoing vigilance and commitment to the mission by our CBP Officers and Import Specialists.”
