PSA EBAY REPORT

Three Ebay Superstars
You don't get much bigger in sports than Derek Jeter, Allen Iverson and Donovan McNabb. These three superstars have dominated the highlight reels and are three of the commanding names in the PSA card world. Their cards are commanding top dollars in high PSA grades. Take a look...

PSA NEW SET REVIEW

Tiger's Rookie Card Heats Up SP Authentic Golf
SP Authentic Golf is one of the latest products on the shelves, and it is also one of the hottest products around, thanks to Tiger Woods' Rookie Card. A PSA 10 version of this card has already sold for over $5,000. The card is factory numbered to 900, autographed, and lighting up the boards on eBay. But there's more to this set than Tiger's RC. Plenty of great cards are inside, just waiting to be graded...

PSA VINTAGE SET REVIEW

The 1955 Bowman Baseball Set: Often Overlooked, Brown-Bordered Beauties
Although overshadowed by the 1955 Topps set, the Bowman set of the same year is not without merit. Names like Berra, Campanella and Reese can be found in this set, even if Koufax, Clemente and Killebrew can't. The only mainstream 1955 Mantle is part of the Bowman set. What's more, condition difficulties and the increasing importance of rarity have given the 1955 Bowman a great deal of potential.

SET REGISTRY SPOTLIGHT

John Branca - The Number One Finest 1959 Fleer Ted Williams Set of All Time
Not one card graded less than a NM-MT 8 and close to perfection, John Branca's 1959 Ted Williams baseball set shines above the rest. The key card to the set, #68 TED SIGNS FOR 1959, is a MINT 9. John has some stiff competition close behind him with seven registrants competing for that number one spot. In fact, the number two set is only .01 point behind! This is a race to watch.
