What is the Walter Payton 1976 Topps PSA 10?

This is the rookie card for Walter Payton, longtime NFL player for the Chicago Bears. Graded PSA 10, there are only 50 others like it.

It IPOs on Rally Road 9th March.

Cultural Relevance

Walter Payton held the NFL rushing record for 15 years until Emmitt Smith broke it in 2002. He remains second on the all-time rushing list behind Smith. He is also tied for first for most interceptions thrown by a non-quarterback with six.

Frank Gore, who is intent on playing forever, may pass Payton this year (or next).

Payton is fifth in the all-time rushing TD books behind Smith and three others. No one active is anywhere close to him.

Payton died in 1999 of complications from a rare liver disease.  

Inferred Value – [Insiders Only]

Two PSA 10 versions of this card have sold in 2021:

  • Feb 3: $79,900
  • Jan 25: $76,099

Notably, [Insiders Only].

The sports cards category has returned 57.2% ROI so far across the entire portfolio.

Subcategory Strength

Recent Growth Trend

Growth Outlook and Future Catalysts

This card’s lower-graded counterparts have shown some weakness over the last month or two, which is worth bearing in mind. Payton may have peaked for now.

Intangibles

The man threw six interceptions.

What is the Floyd Mayweather Jr 1997 Brown’s Boxing PSA 10?

This is Mayweather’s earliest known card, and most collectors consider it to be his true rookie. There are 49 graded at PSA 10.

It IPOs on Otis 10th March.

Cultural Relevance

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. retired from the ring with an unmatched 50-0 record after holding championship titles in five different weight classes. He was the main attraction in several of the most heavily anticipated and highest-drawing bouts in his sport’s history, including memorable face-offs against Manny Pacquiao and Conor McGregor.

Considered by many as the best pound-for-pound boxer in history, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is still the biggest name in boxing.  

Inferred Value – [Insiders Only]

The PSA 10s don’t trade very often, with Otis purchasing this one in January for a slight discount to the IPO price at $36,900. Prior to that, a PSA 10 sold in November 2020 for $15,100.

A PSA 9 sold at auction end of February for $11,100, which implies around a 3.25 multiple to the PSA 10. This seems reasonable.

Category Strength

The sports cards category has returned 57.2% ROI so far across the entire portfolio.

Subcategory Strength

There haven’t been any boxing card items to trade yet.

Risk Profile

There haven’t been any boxing card items to trade yet.

Recent Growth Trend

This card as seem a [Insiders Only] increase over the last year. Take that, Jordan.

Growth Outlook and Future Catalysts

Despite the massive runup already, boxing cards lag far behind other sports cards. This could see another [Insiders Only].

Asset Liquidity

This will have a roughly 30 day lockup period then will trade daily.

Platform Risk

Otis is [Insiders Only] transparent and well-capitalised.

Intangibles

He beat the hell out of Conor McGregor.


Payton rookie, Mayweather rookie, Tatum flawless

What is the Jayson Tatum 2017 Panini Flawless vert RPA /5 PSA 10?

This rookie card contains both a patch of game-worn jersey and an autograph from Jayson Tatum. Rated PSA 10, it’s the only one of its kind with that grading. There are a total of five of these cards.

It IPOs on Collectable 10th March.

Cultural Relevance

Selected third by the Celtics in the 2017 draft, Tatum is a rising star in the NBA. Playing in his second All Star game last night, Tatum scored 21 points on 9-for-16 shooting.

Sorry there’s not a lot to say. He’s very young.

Inferred Value – $[Insiders Only]

Another super rare insert card!

This is a limited edition of /5 with no public sales or auctions, but there is one other similar card with a recent sale we can look to for guidance.

2017 Panini Flawless Ruby RPA (BGS 9, edition of 15): $5,900 December 2020

Inferred value = $[Insiders Only]

Category Strength

The sports cards category has returned 57.2% ROI so far across the entire portfolio.

Subcategory Strength

The basketball cards subcategory has returned [Insiders Only]% ROI so far across the entire portfolio

Risk Profile

Standard deviation for all NBA basketball transactions has been [Insiders Only]%, which is relatively high. Lower is better.

Recent Growth Trend

Jayson Tatum’s base rookie card has appreciated 140% in the last year.

Growth Outlook and Future Catalysts

Modern NBA cards keep looking for a bottom, though the All Star game seems to have helped. I wouldn’t expect miracles, but I also don’t think they’ll drop much more either.

Asset Liquidity

This will have a roughly 90 day lockup period then will trade weekly

Platform Risk

Collectable is [Insiders Only] transparent and well-capitalised.

Intangibles

He calls his young son Deuce, and he has a tattoo of his mum on his calf.
