OC Register: Mike Trout rookie card sells for $186,000 at auction


Recommended Posts

Mike Trout’s success on the field is well documented. Now, the Angels’ All-Star outfielder is a certified hit on the sports collectibles market.

A signed, limited-edition version of Trout’s 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospects rookie card recently sold by GoldinAuctions.com for $186,580, according to multiple published reports.

The card, one of just 25 of its kind, was graded as “gem mint,” meaning it’s in virtually perfect condition, with sharp corners, sharp focus, and its original gloss fully retained.

The card reportedly became the most valuable Trout item ever sold at auction, and joined an elite list of pricey cards sold by Goldin Auctions that includes a 1979-80 Wayne Gretzky rookie card that sold for $465,000, and a 2003-04 LeBron James Upper Deck Ultimate Collection rookie card that went for $312,000.

Goldin Auctions also handled the sale of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar memorabilia over the weekend, offering 234 items the basketball Hall of Famer sold in part to raise money for his charitable foundation. That reportedly brought in $2.9 million, including a 1987 Lakers NBA championship ring that went for $398,937.

Abdul-Jabbar said “much” of the proceeds would go his Skyhook Foundation, which hosts summer camps for children from economically challenged schools who want to learn about science and technology.
