Default WTB Mayweather rookie

Will pay strong but some of the BINs on ebay are quite humorous really. A PSA 9 for 4K that the guy claims is priced low to sell, for example. And they go up from there, all the way to 250K lol. uh, no.

I am baffled by the asking prices. That said one of the guys fishing did sell a BGS 9.5 for $1,750.


This card is one of my major home runs. I paid $8 for my raw set five years ago and self subbed the Mayweather and got a PSA 10.

A 9.5 last night (I got outbid, didn't really want a Beckett) went in the low 600s in Probstein.

I can't find it in completed listings. Weird.

PSA 10's were running in the $650 to $700 range.

Here is a current listing.

Ebay searches can be shaky these days but I have it in my browser history.

Even at $600-$700 it is a pretty impressive price for a modern boxing card. Given the borders and thick glossy stock, I'd rather have an 8 quality card and save the $$ on the slab # if I am buying them already graded.

Here's mine, which I bought raw in a collection and had Beckett slab at the AC National:



Looks perfect to me; I think the grades are nonsense on many of these cards, just random, but I do like having it in a nice holder.

I heard that the issue was about 2500 sets per year from Brown's. So minuscule compared to any baseball issue. That said, the 1997 set is the best one in terms of condition preservation.



The stock, finish and border design lend themselves to higher grade cards, especially as compared to some of the earlier sets, where a 9 is a damned nice card. I am thrilled with these:

I was told there are 1,000 of the sets made of the 1997.

Basically every card is a 9 or 10 from the set. The card stock as you point out is very sturdy.

I don't know how many of these Mayweather cards were printed, but there is one seller in the US who has been listing so many of them over the past few years. I wonder how many more he has in his inventory? This card is not as rare as people think it is.

Nothing modern is rare but the demand is huge. Like the demand for Ali and Pacquiao, it encompasses casual fans and non-boxing collectors, and that feeds on itself because the hardcore boxing ghouls then realize that they have to add one to the collection for the sake of completion.

I bought a raw set back when FMJ wasn't anything special. Before the Pacquiao fight I had the card slabbed and got a PSA 10. I promptly sold it off, deciding to keep a signed 2001 Brown's as my FMJ card instead. I only have the RC again because I bought a collection of Brown's cards that included it.
