Baseball cards represent the most valuable and popular segment in the market of sports cards and memorabilia. In the past few months alone, the most expensive record for baseball cards has changed twice. The top baseball card is the 1952 Topps #311 Mantle card, which sold for a whopping 12.6M USD earlier this year at an auction. So this card is currently considered among the most expensive sports memorabilia. Experts think that the #311 card is one of the few cards still available in outstanding condition. However, it is essential to mention that this particular card was not even released in Mickey Mantle’s rookie year but in the year when Topps started making its annual baseball card sets.
This particular card was bought for $50,000 in 1991, and before the majestic sale this year, another card version was sold for 5.2M last year. Next in line, we have the Honus Wagner card – notably, the 1909 T-206 Wagner card. This is a card produced by the American Tobacco Company, and it just keeps getting more and more expensive. Last year, the Honus Wagner card sold for 6.6M USD; later the same month, it sold for 7.25M USD. As you can quickly note, its market value jumped considerably within a brief period of time.
Next in line is the 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth card selling for $4.212 million, and the 2009 Bowman Draft Mike Trout card for $3.936 million. Then, there is a 1955 Topps Roberto Clemente card which sold for $1.107 Million, and the 2011 Topps Mike Trout selling for $1.05 million. Will the value of these cards skyrocket even more?
