The most expensive basketball cards of November-December - Hobby: Collectible cards - Blogs

Hobby: Collectible cards


Hello everyone!

After a short break, the top most expensive basketball cards are back. Today we will capture 2 months - November and December.

In order for the cards of different periods to be presented in the top, I divided it into three parts: before the 90s, the 90s and the first half of the 00s and the last 10 years.

Let's go from new cards to old ones (most often this means an increase in cost).

So, the top 4 most expensive new cards.

4) In fourth place is a 1/1 LeBron James card from Flawless 2015-16 with the NBA logo. They paid $10,300 for it.

3) Next is newcomer Steph Curry from Topps Chrome 2009-10. The gold parallel in this collection has a circulation of 50 copies. Added to this is the almost perfect condition of the card, and the total price is $10,600.

2) And the same amount was paid for a Karl-Anthony Towns card with a mourning patch dedicated to Flip Saunders of Flawless 2015-16.

1) And in the first place, 2 league logos and two Golden State stars - the same Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. It's the same Flawless collection from last season. The price of this card is $12,000 without one dollar.

Further older cards. I will say in advance that all 4 are from the second half of the 90s

4-3) And open the top two cards of Michael Jordan with a jersey and an autograph. In the first case, the card in this form was inserted into the blocks of the Upper Deck 19 collection98-99 - a kind of parallel with the autograph with a circulation of 23 copies. $10,999 was paid for the card. And the second card in the collection of the previous season was a regular unnumbered jersey. For a re-release in 2013, an autograph was at stake in the Jordan Collection. The resulting result was estimated at $15,000.

2) Next, another overlay of the top newcomer from Topps Chrome. This time it's Kobe Bryant and the 1995-96 collection. Plus, the card itself is in excellent condition. Price $17500.

1) And in the first place is the red parallel Metall Universe PMG by Michael Jordan with an edition of only 100 copies. In addition, the card number 23/100 is of additional interest. It should also be noted that the card was sent to the PSA for an authenticity check, but not for a condition assessment. The rating would not be high - edge damage (not rare for cards of this sub-series) is visible to the naked eye. As a result, the card was sold for $21453.

Well, the oldest top contains only the classic rookie cards of future NBA legends.

4) And this list opens with Wilt Chamberlain's map from the Fleer collection from 1961. The condition of the card is 9 points out of 10 possible, and the price is $32,211.

3-2) Next, two cards from rookie Michael Jordan. Moreover, for a rarer 9-point card from Star-85, they paid more ($40,207) than for a 10-point card from Fleer-86 ($35,999).

1) Well, absolutely out of competition is the triple card of Larry Bird, Julius Irving and Magic Johnson - the main newcomers of the 1979 season-80 from Topps. Three members of the Hall of Fame + the perfect condition of the card itself gave a total of $96423.

Thank you for your attention!

TOP 11 most expensive sports cards in history

In childhood, most children have some kind of hobby or passion, which they recklessly absorbed. Often hobbies are associated with collecting. Collecting coins, stamps, cards, figurines - everyone knows, and some do not stop their hobby even as adults. Of course, collecting doesn't end in childhood. But seriously, even in adulthood, things like coins, stamps, cars and autographs continue to attract and make enthusiastic people spend a lot of money. Pay attention to the 10 most valuable collectibles.

Perhaps one of the most popular hobbies is sports cards. You can buy a new pack of cards almost anywhere. Popular sports are hockey, football, basketball, baseball. The cards you bought today have no value, but by betting on their price increase, you have a chance that one day you will have a very rare and coveted card for many in your hands.

Let's look at The 10 most expensive sports cards that have been auctioned and purchased in recent years . Once upon a time, these cards were ordinary pieces of paper. Some were to draw attention to the pack of cigarettes and the company's brand. Others were released by confectionery companies as a prize or a way to advertise the company and its products, these companies came to dominate the market and still do not give up.

11. Johannes "Honus" Wagner, 1910 - $219,550

Wagner played in major league baseball from 1897 to 1917. Nicknamed the Flying German, he won 8 titles, 6 league slugging titles, and 5 stolen base titles. Possibly one of the greatest shortstop players ever.

Wagner was in the first group of players inducted into the baseball hall of fame. He spent most of his career in the Pittsburgh Pirates batting average of .329, hitting 3,430, and scoring over 1,700 runs.

Distributed with sweets, these cards are likely to fall into the sticky hands of little candy lovers. As a result, the few surviving cards have risen in price.

10. George Miken, 1948 - $219,550

George Miken is the only basketball player whose sports card is still in top 10 most expensive sports cards . He was a 2m center who made a name for himself playing for Chicago American Gears and Minneapolis Lakers in NBL and later in BAA and NHL .

Miken was such a significant figure in basketball that under his influence several rules of the game were changed, and they still exist. These changes include the introduction of an attack time limit, holtending, and an increase in the 3 second zone. During his career, he won 7 championship titles.

9. Bronko Nagurski, 1935 - $240,000

Born in 1908 in Canada, he became famous as an American football player in the fullback position in the 30s of the last century, played for the Chicago Bears team. He was also a professional wrestler and even returned to Chicago Bears for one season in 1943 to make up for the absence of players who had taken part in the war.

A three-time NFL champion , Nagurski was a formidable force playing both sides of the field. The chewing gum company said their annual set will include 240 cards. But at 1935g only 36 were submitted. This card shows him at his college in Minnesota, but at this time he was a member of the Chicago Bears team. A small discrepancy made this unusual card highly desirable and expensive.

8. Ty Cobb, 1911 - $272,980

He was an outfielder baseball player. Played all but one season for the Detroit Tigers . His impressive stats speak for themselves. He was a 12-time batting league champion and a 6-time stolen bases champion. In addition, between 1905 and 1928:

  • had an average batting rate of 0.367,
  • made 4200 hits,
  • 117 scoring runs,
  • over 1900 runs.

The 1911 card was issued together with cakes from a confectionery company. This is one of the rarest baseball cards, made even rarer by the fact that Cobb smiles, which he almost never did on baseball card images.

7. Lou Gehrig, 1933 - $274,950

He was a first baseman who played for the New York Yankees from 1923 to 1939. Now his name is associated with the disease (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease), but he was a 6-time world series champion, was elected 7 times to play in the All-Star Game. He had:

  • batting average 0.340,
  • 493 scoring runs,
  • almost 2000 runs.

Double title holder " Most Valuable Player ", he became the first player whose number was permanently assigned to him. He was one of the most popular players of all time, and his sports card is also very popular among collectors.
