A Mickey Mantle baseball card newly traded for a wooping sum of $5.2 MILLION at auction … breaking the last record by over a million dollars!!
The five million dollar card?? A 1952 #311 Topps Mickey Mantle … speculated to be one of the most eligible trading cards in reality.
We’re also told the card — assessed in mint condition and 1 of only a few in reality was brokered by the people at the online auction site, PWCC.
Aside from Mickey being a 20x All-Star and 7x World Series champion, in the year 1952 was also the 1st year Topps produced baseball cards.
This isn’t the only time this special Mantle card has been sold. In 2018, it toped in $2.88 million at auction. Two (2) years later, it almost doubled in value.
Before the Mantle card set the new world record …a Mike Trout 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospects Super factor held the title — with a whopping $3.9 million price tag.
So, the question is who has a big enough fortune to drop $5 mil plus on a 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch (albeit extremely valuable) piece of cardboard?
The buyer’s name is Rob Gough and if that name sounds a bell, it’s because he’s the man behind the legendary CBD brand, DOPE CBD.
Rob’s bank account is $5 mil lighter today … but on the bright side, he now owns the most valuable baseball card ever made in history.
