Over the last few months, Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions has made his way into the Pardon My Take studio for card opening sessions with Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter. The trio (in addition to a guest appearance by two-time Blake of the Year Blake Griffin last month) has ripped open packs and packs of cards with the hopes of finding gold.
There have been some great finds, don't get me wrong. A Steph Curry rookie card worth $40,000, cards of Blake Griffin himself, and many other reveals have taken place inside the PMT studio. But after surfing the Goldin Auctions website today, I'm hoping the crew opens up a card worth six figures one of these days. Here are some of the highlights on what is being auctioned off on the Goldin Auctions website right now...
1986-87 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan Rookie Card – PSA GEM MT 10
Current Bid: $240,000
This pose right here looks VERY similar to the Michael Jordan dunk from the original Space Jam movie (not to be confused with that cringey remake released a few months ago). We just need MJ's arm to be stretched out a tad more and a dunk over a Monstar for it to feel that much more real. A quarter of a million dollars is some price, though.
2000 Playoff Contenders "Championship Ticket" Autograph #144 Tom Brady Signed Rookie Card (#001/100) – BGS NM 7/BGS 9
Current Bid: $375,000
Speaking of a GOAT, how does a $375,000 signed card sound? I'd imagine this current price is going to continue to skyrocket up, but when you factor in the combination of an autograph as well, it certainly makes sense. Throw in the fact that this is from more than 20 years ago and a Super Bowl season, and that's a huge resume for this card.
2017 Panini Donruss Optic #177 Patrick Mahomes Lot Of Fourteen (14) Rookie Cards (Rainbow Set) - Two BGS GEM MINT 9.5s, 12 PSA GEM MT 10s
Current Bid: $77,000
I see VALUE here. Combine the fact that Patrick Mahomes is on the right track to enter the GOAT conversation when his career is all said and done with the fact that this is a set of 14(!) cards, this pack could certainly raise in price as the Texas Tech product's career marches forward. Sure, the Chiefs are struggling right now at 1-2, but there is still a long way to go this season and plenty of opportunities remain for Mahomes to make some magical plays on the gridiron.
