This year’s National Sports Collectors Convention is a couple of months away and thanks to its non-traditional location — Atlantic City, N.J. — there are perhaps a few more guests on tap that we’ve not expected to see at the annual show.

It’s the Rookie Card of two NBA icons sandwiching a legend. It’s a relic from the past days of simpler cardboard from toward the end of the early Topps era. It’s a piece of cardboard perfection with all the flaws you’d expect from its time — and that’s got nothing to do with condition.
And this card in this condition? Well, it’s a $27,000 card after selling on eBay earlier today.
