The Margin: Why this ‘worthless’ baseball card just sold for $72,500
In the increasingly investment-driven world of sports cards, it’s all about condition: A card graded “mint,” with perfectly sharp corners and no signs of wear, has far greater value than one even considered in “excellent” shape. And a card that is “miscut” — meaning one where the image is far from centered — can be almost worthless.
Unless, of course, that image involves two of baseball’s most iconic players.
