A Mickey Mantle baseball card just sold for $5.2 MILLION at auction … smashing the previous record by over a million bucks!!
The 5 million dollar card?? A 1952 #311 Topps Mickey Mantle … considered one of the most desirable trading cards in existence.
We’re told the card — graded in mint condition and 1 of only a few in existence — was brokered by the people at the online auction site, PWCC.
Aside from Mickey being a 20x All-Star and 7x World Series champ … 1952 was also the 1st year Topps produced baseball cards.
This isn’t the only time this particular Mantle card has been sold … back in 2018 it raked in $2.88 mil at auction. 2 years later … it’s almost doubled in value.
Before the Mantle card set the new record …a Mike Trout 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospects Superfractor held the title — with a $3.9 million price tag.
So, who has a big enough fortune to drop $5 mil plus on a 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch (albeit extremely valuable) piece of cardboard?
The guys’ name is Rob Gough … and if that name rings a bell, it’s because he’s the man behind the iconic CBD brand, DOPE CBD.
Rob’s bank account is $5 mil lighter today … but on the bright side, he now owns the most valuable baseball card ever made.
