Default Someone stole this Clemente Rookie at auction

This card has recently sold for $52k, $43K & $36K, now it's going for what PSA 7's were going for last year.

Lots of amusing underperformers in that auction. The signed Jordan RC estimated at $7500 hammered w/vig at $4500. How about the Williams RC PSA 8 estimated $20K closed at less. The SGC 9 Ryan RC closing below estimate. Either the estimates were out of whack or the bidders stayed away, or some of both. The way I figure it, it was a combo of:

--auction fatigue
--overabundance of Clemente RCs
--possible market manipulation in the run up
--National timing
--Goldin's 'great' rep among bidders. I know at least half a dozen high grade collectors who throw his catalog right into the trash unread. I am not a high grade collector but I do the same.

I thought prices were strong on some other cards. I think it's mostly that prices for Clementes got way out of hand for a while.

This shows how much the market was manipulated last year. A PSA 8 for $131,450 are you kidding!

It has been discussed whether money actually changed hands or perhaps its just the buyer winning their own card.... Until i see someone crying that they paid 131k for that card i really cant believe that lone sale.
