About the Serena Williams

We wrote about Serena Williams when Otis dropped some similar rookie cards. She’s quite good at the tennis.

Recent sales history and Valuation

This is a bit of a funny one. Both PSA and Vintage Card Prices list either incomplete or incorrect pricing data. Likewise Collectable.

The most recent actual auction price was $9,100 on 31 May 2021. However since then, there have been several BIN sales on eBay.

Three in June and two in July, actually, and five were for $7,000; one was for $7,500. The most recent, 2 July 2021, was for $7,000, so that’s our inferred value for each card.

Inferred value is $10k to $20k.

Other ways to invest

There are a number of Serena Williams cards you can invest in from that 2003 NetPro set. Here are a few options:

  • 2003 NetPro “The Williams Sisters” featuring both Serena and Venus (raw): $19.85 – PSA 9 version for $2,500
  • 2003 NetPro Premier series raw: $29.99
  • 2003 NetPro International Series PSA 9: $89.96
  • 2003 NetPro Elite Event Starter PSA 9: $185

Bobby Orr 1966 Topps #35

About the asset

This is a PSA 8 graded rookie card for Bobby Orr. The 1966 Topps card is the only recognised rookie card for the defenseman, and there are 47 PSA 8s in circulation with one PSA 9.

The brown borders make it susceptible to chipping, which makes this a very difficult card to get in higher grades. This one is slightly off center top to bottom – there should be a bit more brown space up top.

This asset will drop on Rally 7 July 2021 at noon EST with a market cap of $50k and no retained equity. From then, there will be around five months lockup before trading begins on a daily basis.

About Bobby Orr

Bobby Orr is the greatest defenseman to ever play hockey and is often cited in the top three overall. The revolutionised the sport as its first and best two-way player, scoring goals and creating assists for fun.

From 1969 to 1975, he led the league in assists five times (remember, he plays defense), twice in points, and six times in plus/minus. Plus minus is calculated by the number of goals for your team v against your team while you’re on the ice. It’s arguably the best indicator of value on the ice.

He’s second all time in plus minus with +597 behind Hall of Famer Larry Robinson, who achieved +730 in more than twice as many games.

His career was cut short after only twelve seasons in 1978 after his dozenth knee surgery.

Recent sales history and Valuation

Inferred value is $50k +

There are a number of Bobby Orr cards available on eBay if you’d like to snap up a lower grade. Here are a few options:
