We will be periodically featuring some of the rarest, most valuable, and interesting cards from collections that have been purchased or consigned through The Cardboard Connection. To kick things off we will be featuring a very impressive vintage baseball card find - one of, if not THE, highest graded 1957 Topps Baseball Card Sets in circulation. The set, which is currently available for purchase on eBay, is graded by PSA at a jaw dropping Near Mint-Mint condition.
Investment opportunities like these do not come along often. In the past couple years, the vintage baseball card market has seen tremendous growth. Cards of star and Hall of Fame (HOF) players have doubled and tripled in value, with some cards fetching 5-10X what they use to just a short time ago! It is not every day you can get your hands on cards like these already graded, and compiled in a huge PSA graded (8+ average condition) set. The newly discovered 1957 Topps Baseball complete 407/407 card set will probably never surface again. Sets like these are so dear to the devoted collectors who assembled them, they almost never come to market. You will not find a higher graded, more carefully put together set of this kind for sale anywhere in the world, except for this inexpiable discovery now for sale on eBay. To assemble a set like this on your own would likely take many years, if not decades, and would be nearly impossible to find in such pack-fresh condition. Between the time and money spent, and countless auctions and collector shows attended the estimated cost to assemble this set yourself could easily exceed $100,000.00.
This impossible to find set is currently being listed on eBay for a Buy It Now price of $52,000.00 or Best Offer. This is an incredible chance to take advantage of an investment opportunity in a that has drawn more and more interest from both collectors and mainstream Wall Street Investors looking to diversify their investment portfolio in order to capitalize on the sharp increase of popularity, consistently increasing value and high investment return potential of the high end graded vintage baseball card market.
