Rickey Henderson Rookie Tops $30,000

Rickey Henderson, Walter Payton and Tony Dorsett Gem Mint rookies went for record prices in the latest Elite Extra Innings Auction at Mile High.

Buoyed by a record-shattering price of just over $30,000 for a 1980 Topps Rickey Henderson RC PSA 10, almost three times the previous record, Mile High Card Company’s Spring Elite Extra Innings Auction made headlines in the hobby.

Usually a forum for more moderately priced items targeted toward the casual collector, this Elite Extra Innings Auction was supercharged with many of the hottest cards in the hobby today.


In addition to the incredible price on the Henderson, one of just 13 in existence, other important sales include a 1986 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan RC PSA 10, which fetched a near-record $14,800.

A 1976 Topps #148 Walter Payton RC PSA 10 sold for a record-breaking price of $14,700. A 1986 Topps #161 Jerry Rice RC PSA 10 brought just over $11,500, and Tony Dorsett’s 1978 Topps #315 RC PSA 10 set a new record high at just over $6,700.
