Skinner Auctioneers just wrapped up its first sports card auction and, thanks to such elite athletes as Tom Brady and LeBron James, the event was a success.
“The auction demonstrated that the contemporary sports card market continues to be strong, as the Brady card sold in line with its grade, and numerous other cards sold above estimates,” said Leila Dunbar, a consultant for Skinner said of the sales.
Many of the lots went right down to the wire with heavy bidding, including an autographed Tom Brady 2000 Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket (PSA 5, Auto 9), which sold for $372,500.
Lebron and Patrick Mahomes cards also performed well, with the 2003 Topps Chrome Xfractor Lebron James #111 Card, #165/200 selling for $40,625 and the 2017 Panini Contenders Patrick Mahomes Draft Class Autographed Rookie Card #16/25 selling for $4,063.
The auction was highlighted by Brady cards. Among the 34 offered, his 2000 Playoff Contenders Tom Brady Autograph Rookie Ticket Card #144, estimated at $10,000-$15,000, sold for $17,500. The 2000 Bowman Chrome Tom Brady Rookie Card, #236, estimated at $8,000-$10,000, sold on the high end of the estimate at $10,000.
