The auction’s top lots include the following exciting, unique, and intriguing items include:
The 2000 Playoff Contenders set included 100 copies of Brady’s autographed Championship Ticket parallel card. Only seven of those have been graded to a BGS 9. No copy has been graded higher.
Only two verified sales of the card in this grade have occurred since 2020 – one in public auction and one reported privately. On both occasions, the sales price was north of $3,000,000.
The interest in this card becomes more apparent as you look into Brady’s rookie offerings. Brady only appeared in 11 mainstream autograph sets in 2000. Just four of Brady’s rookie autos picture him in a Patriots uniform — and they are all from the 2000 Playoff Contenders set. The 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Ticket /100 Rookie Auto is considered the most desirable among those offerings.
The 2003 LeBron Exquisite with an auto grade appears just six times in the PSA/DNA population report. Only two copies have been graded higher than this PSA 8.
Arguably the most sought-after LeBron rookie issue produced, this copy includes a patch featuring seven breaks – going red, gold, white, gold, red, gold, white. The autograph – receiving a 10 grade – also appears flawless.
This 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospects Red Refractor /5 Rookie Auto is the second rarest offering of Trout from this infamous set — it sits behind only the 1-of-1 Superfractor in terms of rarity.
However, in the aristocracy of modern baseball cards, this card still carries immense prestige thanks to the fact that the /5 version is an Angels color-matching Red Refractor.
Beckett’s population count has a BGS 9.5 Auto 10 example listed five times, with none graded higher.
It is one of Trout’s scarcest first-year autos and arguably one of the most iconic post-2000 baseball cards.
This SGC 9 copy is a very high grade for Robinson’s rookie debut with Bowman. Only two examples of Robinson’s 1949 Bowman card have ever garnered an SGC 9 designation, while two others have received a higher distinction from the company.
PSA has 11 copies of the card in its pop report at a 9, with none higher. Beckett has none listed at this level or above.
That makes this card one of the best-conditioned examples in existence.
This Messi/Ronaldo team up numbered to 5 has never appeared at public auction until now — just weeks away from both players taking part in what COULD be their final World Cup. These are two unquestionable greats in the sport, with a combined 12 Ballon D’Or awards between them.
Adding to the allure this card will gain from performances on the pitch is its place in hobby history: this is the first Prizm set for soccer ever released.
Bryant—who thrilled on the All-Star scene the year before as the Slam Dunk contest champion—was the third player in NBA history to serve in a bench role throughout the season and get elected as an All-Star starter. To celebrate the occasion, he wore a black and white colorway of his Adidas Crazy 8 sneakers that featured trimmings in the purple and gold of the Lakers and saw his jersey No. 8 stitched into the base of the tongue.
Those sneakers are now up for sale, complete with photo matching from Resolution Photomatching and Real Game Used.
