Until our Monthly Masterpiece Plus #14 Auction a couple of months ago in October, no examples of Ryne Sandberg's scarce and extremely condition sensitive 1983 O-Pee-Chee rookie card had sold in PSA 10 Gem Mint condition since 2012, when Dmitri Young sold his for just over $1,000 in SCP Auctions historic rookie card bonanza. Before that, only a single copy had sold in 2011, just a single copy in 2010, a handful of copies in 2009, none in 2008, and just one other copy in 2007, and that for well over $1,500. Why have the sales been so sporadic and limited? Well, until we recently graded this gorgeous Gem this past fall for our consignor, plus two other immaculate copies that have both since sold, one for $996 and the second for $1,056, it had been a mere Pop 8 at PSA from 400 submissions, making it just about the rarest key Hall of Fame O-Pee-Chee baseball rookie card of the entire decade. Bid now, or forever hold your peace -- or at least for another year or two when another copy might surface -- as this is our last one available. Want to turn your raw cards into rare $1,000 PSA 10 Gems? Please call our office line at 303.832.1975 or write info@smalltraditions.com to learn how you, too, can take advantage of our free grading offer on items valued above $100. Small Traditions, big results!
