In the day and age of cards being worth a TON, I was curious to see what your most expensive card was...Here is mine

2008 Upper Deck Goudey Sport Royalty Autographs #DJ Derek Jeter SP



There is no book value for the Sp version...the regular Goudey version books for $250...

Lets see em!

My most expensive Football are these two. I just picked up the Emmitt Yesterday No BV # 2/5. The Unitis ungraded BV is 300.00.





For baseball it would have to be my Henderson #'ed to /5

Thanks! A friend of mine has had this card for over a year and I have been trying to get it from him for some time. I gave up a ton of cards for it, but I had to have it!

Hard to say, as I don't pay attention to catalog values once the card is mine. Many of the cards I obtained were once "worth" more, back in the day.

Here are a couple modern cards that once had pretty insane values...

1994 Score R/T September Call-Up Redemption card


1993 Finest Refractor


Probably pale in value comparison, but a seldom seen Joe Montane Rookie item, 1981 MSA disc


Then I have a plethora of older cards that have high BVs, but that doesn't take into consideration current condition. Most of my older cards have some or a fair amount of wear and tear to drop the value enough from BV to make them worth much less than BV would lead you to believe. Cards like...

1952 Topps Andy Pafko (The #1 premium over-exaggerated!!!)


1911 T3 Turkey Red Nap Rucker


1954 Wilson Franks Gil Hodges


1954 Stahl Meyer Duke Snider


1958 Bell Brand Roy Campanella, Reese & Hodges


A pair of Jacks;) (1949 Leaf Jackie Robinson & 1949 Bowman Jackie Robinson rookies)


1934 Goudey Lou Gehrig and a beater Foxx


1951 Topps Connie Mack All Star Christy Mathewson


My mini Zach Wheat collection, including a T204 Ramley and a Cracker Jack


A couple of '56 Topps scrubs!


Those are just a few that I had scanned already. Given condition and values in the book, not sure which I would call my "most expensive". Heck, it might not even be one of these for all I know.

Here are mine for each sport.

In Baseball its one of these 3. All have no BV so would depend on what someone was willing to pay.
AJ
SPed to 20. I am sure it would do well on Ebay since this set is a set a lot are trying to complete and its the hardest card to get from the set.

GU Jersey #ED 3/3


GU Pants #ED 3/3


Basketball
One of these 2. Both are SPs with no BV but the dual is a double RC auto of James/Anthiny



Football
Has to be this
GU patch #ED to 5

I'm not so sure why I even started this one...I am in seriou spain looking at all these amazing cards!!! I don't even collect vintage and the post by mrmopar is making me jealous and then seeing a Jordan auto is always nice.

AWESOME stuff!!! Thanks

I'll be a little modest and admit that there are lots of wonderful cards in this thread that are probably "better" than this one, but it's the one that tops my collection:


1954 Topps Ernie Banks rookie... last I saw, it booked for $1500

I guess this would be it? Most of my expensive cards are all 1/1 thus not really listed..... I just bought this on ebay.. but I didnt pay the $250 asking price, lol....

Mine would be the 94 Leaf Limited Arod Rookie I recently pulled from a pack (photo in my bucket). Then it would be my Joe Montana Auto/triple gu(photo in bucket).

I have the same one....actually I have 2 of them.:D

The sad thing is, I recall having a good stack of at least 10 of 'em back in the day. A friend and me would go down to the local Seven-Eleven and buy packs like crazy. I believe we traded 'em to his brother for cards we needed of our sets. I have the entire set plus stickers plus the next years as well.
Oh well!

LOL!

I bought packs then too and had just about everyone you could want except Jordan when I "rediscovered" them around 92-93! They had not been touched since I joined the Navy in 87. I don't know if I was robbed, was taken by another trader then or just was unlucky. I had 3-4 Jordan stickers though.
