The high-dollar auctions aren’t just for high-grade Mickey Mantle cards.
While “The Mick” has dominated the auction block in recent years — and did so again last weekend via Heritage Auctions — there were two six-figure NFL sales of note in that Heritage sale, too.
And they weren’t alone as a number of graded football cards topped the $10,000 mark.
Leading the way was this PSA 9 copy of Jim Brown‘s 1958 Topps Rookie Card, which has four brethren in the same grade but a PSA 10 does not exist. This card? It sold for $336,000. The other six-figure Rookie Card was the PSA 9 Bart Starr 1957 Topps card up top that sold for $288,000. It’s one of three PSA 9s and, again, a PSA 10 does not exist.
The big sale — one that totaled more than $12 million in all for the weekend — also included a $48,000 Peyton Manning PSA 10 1998 Playoff Contenders Rookie Card (pop 52), a second-year Brown card, a second Starr RC and Topps debuts for Joe Namath, Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas and Paul Hornung to name a few. You can see a number of them — and what they sold for — in the gallery below.
