I want to add something else to this thread:

I think this PSA 9 Alifabolaget Pele is the highest price ever paid for a soccer card. However, when it comes to popularity, this card ranks in second place (below the Quigol). A PSA 9 Quigol would probably fetch $100,000+ PSA hasn't handed out this grade yet, but I can see it happening soon.

It seems to me that boxing has made a bit of a comeback in the last few years in general. Do you not feel that that is the case more broadly (excepting your consignment)?
That's about right, Al.

And yeah, I took the loss. I was hoping for a gain but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

"Waterfront cards"? Not ringing a bell. is that a set?

I didn't put on a reserve for a variety of reasons including needing to cash out for other endeavors.

I was curious about the waterfront cards, as well.

Are you guys asking me to name you all the waterfront cards or are you asking me to define it? If you use the search feature on top of the page, then you will see lots of threads where collectors frequently use this term. This term probably originated on this forum.

Default Waterfront Cards

I would assume a "waterfront" card is a real estate reference, correct?

Real estate near a lake or ocean goes for a premium so a waterfront card would be a 1 of 1, highest graded, PSA 10, etc. of an iconic athlete. Just my guess.

I think someone meant to use watershed and instead used waterfront and it just stuck.

You got it, my friend.

So a collector going after the waterfront cards would add a well-centered PSA 7.5 Roberto Clemente RC, a strong PSA 5 T206 (green background) Ty Cobb, PSA 8 Wilt Chamberlain RC, PSA 7 1951 Parkhurst Gordie Howe RC, etc.

Another thing I want to point out is that not all waterfront cards are rookies. A 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth is not a rookie, and neither is the 59/60 Quigol Pele

Actually, I think the term is a bastardized version of "beachfront", which is why I didn't understand it. The waterfront is usually a lousy area of industrial docks and logistics stuff. Beachfront is desirable residential.
