Gretzky Cup Clinching Stick Auction

Post image 1

Found this interesting- Gretzky's stick from the '88 Cup- signed, game-used, matched to the clinching game- is up for auction at Sotheby's and currently sitting at $42K after 64 bids.

Given the Oilers are back in the Cup Finals, haven't won in 30ish years, and this stick was used by the greatest to ever play... is anybody else surprised by the current bid price?

Sotheby's has a Shai Gilgeous Alexander jersey from a relatively meaningless game where he scored 12pts up on their site for $20,000... You mean to tell me a stick Gretzky used when he won a Cup is only worth 2x that?

NBA definitely has more hype and collecting power than hockey, but I'm surprised. What am I missing?

Sotheby's, Fanatics to partner on auctions for high-end sports cards | cllct

Auctions will feature cards worth $100,000 and up, starting with Jackie Robinson 1948 Leaf card

Fanatics is rebranding PWCC (no surprise) and now announces a partnership with Sotheby’s for high end auction items…que the Darth Vader Imperial March music. Fanatics is looking to take over every aspect of the Collectibles space and squash the competition.

Thoughts?

PWCC Rebranding as Fanatics Collect

Big but unsurprising news out of Fanatics this AM. They are sunsetting the PWCC brand and changing the name to Fanatics Collect. Rumors have been circulating for a while- the PWCC brand didn’t make sense once Fanatics bought them.

Perhaps more surprising is they’ll be partnering with Sotheby’s on high end card auctions.

What do you all think?

Sotheby's NBA Auction Jerseys

Post image 1

I'm fascinated by what Sotheby's is doing with their NBA Auctions- loads of game-worn jerseys available for sale with BIN prices. The prices depend on how big the player is, and what they did in the game(s) the jersey was worn in, but you can find jerseys for as low as $750. You could argue a Richaun Holmes jersey from a game he scored 2pts and grabbed 2 boards isn't worth even $750, but for someone who wants to get into the game-worn space, wants to take a flier on a young player in the hopes they become a star, or just is a fan of a lesser-known guy, the 'low' cost of entry might be enticing. I'm not in the market and think there's risk that the supply will be too great given so many of these were 1-game jerseys, but it's intriguing.

Anyone buying?
