Someone on Facebook asked, “If you could have 500 dollars to spend on one card, what card would you pick?” My first thought was in football, a 1957 Topps Johnny Unitas rookie or a Sammy Baugh rookie. Then I remembered that the most expensive vintage card since WW2 is the 1965 Topps Joe Namath. I checked ebay for that card and the cheapest one is 800 dollars.
Is there a logical explanation as to why that one card is that expensive?
I know it is a HOF RC, but more than Johnny U? Sammy Baugh? Sid Luckman? Bart Starr?
I flat don’t get it.
So, my question to you, If you could have 500 dollars to spend on one card, what card would you pick?
