Dozens of Zion Williamson cards have now sold for $2,000 and up on eBay alone in the last five weeks and he still doesn’t have a licensed card showing him in his New Orleans Pelicans uniform.
Zionmania figures to hang around for a bit unless he struggles with his transition to the NBA once the season begins.
Yardbarker.com caught up with one buyer who opened a lot of packs before finally landing one of his signed rookie cards.
One of the best cards in Topps’ recently released 2019 Luminaries baseball product was still out there, waiting to be discovered…until this week.
Each box has one card and they’re on eBay for $200-$250.

A Texas store owner who sold sports memorabilia, fan gear and cards has some angry customers who say he took their money and has now disappeared.
Fans from as far away as Virginia ordered items advertised by the shop in Conroe, TX, but say they still haven’t gotten them. Others turned over their own items and cash after Mendenhall said he had a deal to get them autographed.
That didn’t happen either.
KPRC reported in front of the store which is now empty. You can watch their story here.
Sports Cards Plus in San Antonio was burglarized earlier this year and so far, there’s been no arrest.

Here’s a fun blast from the past… a 1980 UPI wire photo of the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card. The caption touts the value of the card at the time, which was a shocking $2,000. For a baseball card? You’ve got to be kidding!
At the time, a lot of people still weren’t aware that vintage baseball cards were popular and starting to become pretty valuable, although we sure wish we would have cobbled together the $2,000 to buy one.
