The Babe Ruthbaseball card market is still ON FIRE!!!
Check out this rare 1933 Goudey #149 card– signed by The Bambino himself — that just sold for $761,100 at auction Sunday night … more than DOUBLE the highest price ever fetched for this particular card!!!
The item was part of the legendary “Uncle Jimmy” collection — an insane collection of ultra-rare cards that Jimmy Micioni had stashed away at his home in New Jersey since he was a kid.
Experts say Uncle Jimmy did such an amazing job preserving the cards, it’s like they were printed yesterday!!
Micioni died in March 2020 at the age of 97 — but his family has gone public with the incredibly valuable treasure trove of cards … and they’ve been getting record prices at auction.
In fact, Jimmy had a SECOND signed Babe Ruth 1933 Goudey #149 that sold in 2020 for $325,000 — which was a record at the time.
The 2020 card quality was graded at a 4.5 (very good to excellent condition) and the Ruth signature on the card got a 6 grading.
The card that sold Sunday night was PSA graded 4 with an 8 on the autograph.
Final gavel price … $761,100 — a record for that particular card and proof the sports card market is still as hot as ever!!
