2019 TOPPS CHROME BUNDESLIGA ERLING HAALAND ROOKIE AUTO #72 BGS 9.5 GEM MINT – $11,700
I expected around ~$10k for this card, Haaland’s form has been excellent, but City’s play has been questioned and the interest for his cards just isn’t there. (Search This Week’s Haaland Auctions)
2004 PANINI SPORTS MEGA CRACKS BARCA CAMPEON LIONEL MESSI ROOKIE #62 PSA 10 – GEM $4,560
I always look at these cards and wonder if adding ‘Catalan’ or ‘Spanish’ to the PSA levels would help distinguish the two variations and provide long term value. (Search This Week’s Messi Auctions)
2002 PANINI SPORTS MEGA CRAQUES CRISTIANO RONALDO ROOKIE #137 BGS 8 NM-MT – $3,960
If there’s one thing a collector should take away with vintage football is that a slab is so much more than just a technical grade.
The conversation of this card’s price in a relative grade at PSA should revolve entirely around PSA’s authentication guarantee. With all of the controversies, any reasonable collector wouldn’t trust Beckett slabs when it comes to vintage football, and that needs to be addressed. (Search This Week’s Cristiano Ronaldo Auctions)
2017 TOPPS CHROME UEFA ORANGE REFRACTOR LIONEL MESSI 1/25 #1 BGS 9.5 GEM MINT – $4,920
This Messi, and more importantly, Orange refractors have such a good lesson to teach: the PSA 10 Gold Refractors regularly go for $12-$15k, and carry a premium over the more short printed Orange Refractors /25. Cards are never as linear as, shorter print, more valuable, there’s many factors involved.
1977 FUTBOL DISCS SOCCER DIEGO MARADONA ROOKIE #11 PSA 1 PR – $2,640
Eye appeal is everything, the miscut disc and the mark on Diego’s face really hold the this card back. (Search This Week’s Maradona Auctions)
2018 PANINI KABOOM! GOLD CHRISTIAN PULISIC /10 #K-CPU PSA 9 MINT – $3,960
My favorite image of Christian, but I’m still a purist, I prefer the pack-pulled Select USA Kaboom. (Search This Week’s Pulisic Auctions)
2017 TOPPS CHROME UEFA RED REFRACTOR ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI /10 #78 PSA 8 NM-MT – $4,080
This has to be one of the premier Lewandowski ultra-modern cards.
2015 PANINI FLAWLESS SIGNATURES RUBY PELE AUTO /15 #FS-P MBA AUTH – $5,520
When you’re looking at sets like Flawless, it’s important to both distinguish the parallel and the subset, each one is VERY different from the last. (Search This Week’s Pele Auctions)
2017 TOPPS CHROME UEFA REFRACTOR KYLIAN MBAPPE ROOKIE #41 PSA 10 GEM MINT – $1,560
2017 TOPPS CHROME UEFA BLUE REFRACTOR KYLIAN MBAPPE ROOKIE /150 #41 BGS 9.5 GEM – $3,840
The differences between a BGS 9.5 and a PSA 10 are an ocean now…I can’t imagine comparing third party grading companies now. (Search This Week’s Mbappe Auctions)
2018 PANINI PRIZM WORLD CUP BLUE PRIZMS KYLIAN MBAPPE ROOKIE /199 #80 BGS 9.5 – $3,480
Here’s one of the few ‘second-year cards’ that actually held value over time, and that’s mostly attributed to the World Cup Prizm connotation attached to it.
2017 SELECT KABOOM! CRISTIANO RONALDO #1 PSA 10 GEM MINT – $3,600
I wonder if the ‘Kabooms are the next PMG’s’ narrative is already passing us by after just a year…
2019 PANINI PRIZM PREMIER LEAGUE GOLD PRIZMS MOHAMED SALAH /10 #99 PSA 10 GEM – $1,110
If you’re seriously looking into buying fringe players outside of the all-time greats, it’s important to study each market and what each player has available, and that’s only more prevalent here in football. Salah doesn’t have much high end, so it’s not surprising to see this first-year Liverpool Prizm reach the levels of a Finest Superfractor.
2021 TOPPS CHROME UEFA SAPPHIRE PURPLE REFRACTOR GAVI ROOKIE /25 #25 BGS 9.5 GEM – $1,050
*ALL* prospects carry risk.
2017 SELECT TERRACE GOLD PRIZM CRISTIANO RONALDO /10 #33 BGS 9.5 GEM MINT – $1,620
NOT ALL GOLD PRIZMS ARE THE SAME. Each card should be looked at as an entirely different case study from the last. This is a 2nd year Select Gold, a Portugal kit and not Real Madrid, and a Terrace, not a Field Level.
2018 IMMACULATE COLLECTION SAPPHIRE LIONEL MESSI PATCH AUTO DNA 9 /15 PSA AUTH – $2,190
Fun card, poor execution on the auto…Messi’s autograph is just too elegant.
2008 PANINI EKSTRAKLASA SOCCER ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI ROOKIE #8 PSA 10 GEM MINT – $3,120
It’s important to note that many of these cards and stickers are going through heavy price and population discovery, there’s going to be lots we learn in the upcoming years, so don’t assume ANYTHING you read on population reports or pricing is definite.
