Anyways... today's post isn't about the Revering. It's actually about one of the other cards in the set. My favorite Oakland Athletic of all-time... Mr. Rickey Henley Henderson:
This morning, I decided to do a quick search for the Revering and I noticed that the Henderson has become a pretty pricey piece of cardboard. Now I'm not talking about triple digits kind of expensive... but I was surprised to see these recently closed listings on eBay:
January 25th ($50 + $3.25 Shipping)
March 11th ($66.01 + $3 Shipping)
March 22nd ($25 + $3.50 Shipping)
I realize that these were only distributed regionally and Rickey Henderson is pretty popular among collectors, but that doesn't really explain the sudden interest in this card. If the trend continues, I might just need to send in the stack of Rickeys I've slowly accumulated over the years to PSA to get graded... especially since someone is currently asking $2,806.40 for their PSA 8 copy:
But until I do end up cashing in on these Granny Goose cards, I'm going to consider this Gossage to be the true Golden Goose of my A's collection:
2014 Leaf Best of Baseball
1992 Leaf Buyback Autograph
I picked this up sometime last year on COMC for $7.62. It's my first and only Gossage autograph where he's featured in an Athletics uniform.
Well that's all I have for you today. Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend.
Happy Saturday and sayonara!
