Full Version: Most valuable card in your collection

This can be based on sale or book value, depending on which you feel most comfortable with. Also feel free to share how you acquired the card (trade, gift, purchase, etc).

Without a doubt my most valuable card is a 1961 Topps #300 Mickey Mantle. It was acquired via trade from RGBII (thanks for helping me get this). Beckett book value is $600, although mine is worth less due to condition.

(Yes, I realize I incorrectly labeled the file "1962".)

Nice Mantle there Cody. smile.gif



I picked this up a few years ago as graded card PSA 4 VG-Ex. Depending on what price guide you use laugh.gif Beckett has it at $460.00 and the Standard Catalog of baseball cards has it priced at $600-$1000. I think I paid about $600 for it.

However, what was more in demand from my collection was a "lesser" card -
1909-11 T206 Kid Elberfeld (the rare Washington portrait)

"He was also an elite shortstop, and when Elberfeld and Honus Wagner were both in the minors, many considered Elberfeld a better prospect than Wagner."
