This is significantly more than someone paid for a Michael Jordan baseball card recently.
According to Sports Collectors Daily, the card is believed to have previously been owned by former NFL lineman turned card collector/investor/dealer Evan Mathis.
The card itself is a 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Rookie Ticket Autograph card and was just one of 100 produced. It was rated 9 by Beckett Grading, per Sports Collectors Daily.
As expensive as the price was for this rare card, its value should only skyrocket in the years to come.
