Goldin Auctions, the leading marketplace for collectibles and trading cards, announces the opening of its 2021 March Premium auction featuring more than 2,400 rare and valuable items. The auction, which opened this week, includes rookie cards of Kobe Bryant, Tom Brady, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Michael Jordan, Mickey Mantle, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Patrick Mahomes and many more.
The auction is expected to be one of the largest ever sports auctions, approaching the record previously set by Goldin in its $45.2 million Winter auction that closed last month. Hobbyists and consignors widely recognize Goldin Auctions as the trusted leader for ultra-rare and highly-sought after cards and collectibles amid explosive growth in the industry. As interest from overseas markets has boomed and collectors increasingly view sports memorabilia as valuable alternative assets, the industry has grown to more than $10 billion in annual transactions.
“Enthusiasm for the hobby is continuing to reach new heights. This has been an incredible year for us and the industry overall — and it’s only March!” said Ken Goldin, Founder and Chairman of Goldin Auctions. “We call this our premium auction because it includes some of the rarest and most desirable cards for collectors and we expect the bidding on these items will be spirited, to say the least.”
