With rookie cards of George Brett, Robin Yount, Gary Carter and Jim Rice, as well as cards of such legends as Hank Aaron, Reggie Jackson and Pete Rose, the 1975 Topps Baseball series is one of the most valuable and sought-after sets in sports card history.

Goldin just verified its demand value with a 1975 Topps complete set selling for $600,000, an all-time record for the popular set.

The record sale was one of the highlights of Goldin’s February Sports & Pop Culture Auction, which attracted a company record 75,000 bids and netted $23 million in sales.

The auction also featured several other sales records, including a 2006 Futera Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton card that sold for $312,000, a new all-time high for any F1 card.

“While the final price realized is a good measure of how popular an item is, an equally important way to judge how sought-after something is is the number of bids it receives,” Goldin Executive Chairman and Founder Ken Goldin said. “A healthy amount of bids in an auction signals overall good health in a business and an industry.

“A stratospheric, record-breaking number of bids like the 75,000-plus that we just saw suggests that we’re still nowhere close to the ceiling in terms of interest in the hobby. 2022 is already off to a hot start and we can’t wait to see what’s next.”
