Mickey Mantle Card Sells For $12.6 Million

 A 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card with a 9.5 grade was sold at Heritage Auctions for $12.6 million. This Mickey Mantle card now sets the record as the most ever paid for any sports item, card, or memorabilia.

The previous record for a sports card was held by a T206 Honus Wagner card. That Honus Wagner card was sold for $7.25 million. 

"This card is arguably the finest-condition example of the most iconic post-war card in the world, that grade, plus the fact it has documented provenance from the most storied find in hobby history, puts this card in a category of its own." - Chris Ivy, Heritage's director of sports auctions
