I was pretty surprised it sold.

If I remember correctly, the auction was hovering around $20-25K when the reserve was announced at $47.5K (w/o BP) and got no action until last night.

I'm hope the consigner was happy with the hammer price and the buyer got a tremendous card but I'm still not sure there's a market to hold up these crazy prices for the non-big 4 sports, i.e. these last three Pele cards along with the Cassius Clay earlier this year at Heritage and the Bobby Jones Lambert in PWCC that approached $20,000.

I don't know about the Quigol and Alifabolaget 8.5, but you obviously mitigate some of the risk with an auction when you put on a reserve price.
