Among The Most Important Investment Cards in the Hobby

Unquestionably the most important modern Soccer/Futbol rookie card in existence and assessed by lead grading company PSA as MINT. Only thirty-four of these elite #71 Mega Cracks Lionel Messi rookie cards have managed to earn the PSA 9 assessment and only twenty have graded higher. Much of the hobby these days, is focused around extremely high pop PSA 10 rookie cards and we must say, it's refreshing to see such a low-pop RC card which features arguably the greatest of all-time. The offered Mega Cracks Messi rookie boasts some of the finest eye-appeal we've seen on the fragile issue with 50-50 alignment and untouched corners front and back (rare)! The surfaces are extraordinary with zero typical scuffs, indents or other imperfections present. Modest chipping to the reverse edges is all that keeps from earning the coveted PSA 10 assessment. Lionel Messi is the GOAT in the eyes of most who watch and understand the 'beautiful game'. Taking advantage of his smaller size, Messi is able to dice through defenses with incredible ease having scored over 700 career goals at this point in his career, many of which have been finished in spectacular fashion. Last month, we had the pleasure of brokering a PSA 10 example of this iconic Messi rookie where it fetched a staggering $117,000; we're proud to offer this ultra impressive PSA 9 to the investment community free of any reserve or restriction. Please see the video highlight for more details on this offering. One of over 25,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 10th Auction of 2020.
