2020 Lewis Hamilton Topps Card sells for $900,000
Goldin Auctions are leaders in the sports collectables industry, and conduct memorabilia auctions for collectors around the globe.
They announced that Lewis Hamilton’s 2020 Topps Chrome Superfactor card was sold for a record $900,000. It became an all-time record for an F1 card.
The previous record was the Briton’s own 2006 Futera Grand Prix card. It sold for a whopping $312,000 to an unnamed collector two months before the 2020 card.
The record for the most expensive card sold still stands with the Honus Wagner baseball card which sold for $6 Million dollars. In the future, we may well witness an F1 card crossing the million-dollar mark due to the rise in popularity.
Trading cards are selling well as more and more people are keeping them as collectibles for a longer period of time. Keep a close eye on Max Verstappen or Charles Leclerc’s cards in the near future.
