T206 Eddie Plank Tops Mile High Card Auction Results

A T206 Eddie Plank card, graded VG (PSA 3), brought a final bid of $75,082 in Mile High Card Company’s first auction of 2010.  Over 470 lots of higher end sports cards and memorabilia were offered. The prices paid include the company’s 17.5% buyer’s premium. The Plank card generated 30 bids after opening at $10,000. Considered one of the four most difficult cards to find in the famed T206 baseball card set, the Plank is highly sought after by collectors with the means to complete a master set. Perhaps the most popular–and certainly most expensive mainstream set of the post-War era is the 1952 Topps issue and Mile High offered a complete, graded set in the sale. With an overall grade of about EX to EX-NM, the set brought $61,770. Read full stroy here at Sports Collectors Daily.
