Default Top 20 most expensive cards ... realized prices

Posted By: Shawn Chambers

Hey guys,

With the recent re-sale of the Wagner, got me to thinking about the top 20 highest prices paid for a card. Multiple sales of the same card not included. I have lately been putting together some T205 teams and noticed the PSA 8 Ty Cobb just fetched around $84000 w/ juice in Mastro's auction...funny, seems like no one even mentioned this on any board I read (or if they did I missed it). Guess $84K just doesn't garner the attention it used to...lol.

I'm sure some likely candidates for the list are the T210 Jackson, Baltimore News Ruth, etc, but will be surprised that some may be lesser cards but in stellar shape (i.e. a PSA 10 or SGC 98). How many different and distinct T206 Wagners make the list? Interesting to see....

Anyone keep tabs on such a thing? Or we could try to assemble a list in this thread...

I'll start

1) T206 Honus Wagner $2.8 Million

Curious...

obviously, the highest priced cards are going to be slabbed. Using Ted or Bobby's site should give you the top 20 results.

Shawn,

On the homepage is a section called the Auction Market Report. In this section is the Top 25 and it breaks down the most valuable cards by sport.

Bobby,

Thanks,

I'm usually in such I hurry to search for a certain player, I never pay much attention to the homepage...

...that is certainly a quick and easy list. I knew there must be a reason I send you money every month! Ha ha...

Keep up the good work,

Shawn

Many of the very rare 19th century cards have sold in private transactions versus public auctions. I think you will find that the private prices realized will dwarf (on an individual card bases) the public prices. Unfortunately the prices realized on private sales are only known to a few.

Bobby- the N370 Welch that graded SGC 84 actually sold for $9280, not $92,800 as you have listed. You added a zero.

Also, what period of time does your list cover? I've auctioned two cards that would make the list but I don't know your time frame.

Barry,

The time frame goes back to 2005. We only put individual cards and not every sale of the same card in our list. Otherwise the top 8 spots would all be Wagner's T206.

I was thinking the same thing...the list could easily be all Wagners!

But if you take out the N370, you need to find a new #20. That number just didn't seem possible to me, so I checked REA's prices realized.

I will check but think that a cron runs ever night checking the list and should renew tomorrow.
