RUNNEMEDE, NJ - September 26, 2019 – The Mickey Mantle card that took the industry by storm last summer, known as the most valuable vintage “pull” to date, is up for bids in the Goldin Auctions 2019 October Legends Auction now through October 19th at GoldinAuctions.com.
At the 2018 National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland, Ohio – in full view of the collecting community, a nationwide television audience and the general public – the now-famous piece was pulled directly from an unopened 1955 Bowman pack. The card hadn't seen daylight in more than sixty years, and it represents the rare collectible that couldn't possibly have been subjected to any sort of touch-ups or alteration. Directly from cello pack to PSA holder, there are no questions about the authenticity, value, or beauty of this card.
“Being a collector myself for nearly 50 years, I can’t watch the video of the “Break” without getting goose bumps.” Said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions. “We’ve all known the thrill from an early age of breaking open a pack and seeing a card of your hero, all these years later it is very cool to see the industry moving into this direction and it’s a blast to have Goldin Auctions involved. This is a card that represents a simpler time where opening a pack of baseball cards had endless possibilities, like landing a Mint Mickey Mantle.”
