Default Will there be a post-war card again like the 52 Mantle ?

Did the 52 Mantle hit at the perfect time ? Decades ago not many would have said a post-war baseball card would command over a million dollars.
Do you think there will ever be a "big one" like the Mantle to hit or is it all over past the 52 Mick ?

Will never have one again where it isnt condition sensitve. Maybe cards that are PSA 10s etc.

But to me a real card with value means if it had a rip in it or part of it is ripped off...its still worth $500+...... The 1952 Mantle is still worth that if its ripped apart and taped together. You wont see that with any other card post war that we dont know about.. ...

Playing games with POP due to artificial scarcity of PSA 10s is a whole different animal..

you could have an aaron judge PSA 10 that is POP 1 40 years ago thats worth money....but one that is ripped apart and taped together will be worthless for example

Agree with Jason. I don’t think the artificially-created scarcity of the modern era can ever create the level of demand that exists for the natural scarcity of vintage
cards.

Default cards will be the least of our concerns

My guess is that in the next post-war, apocalyptic period, anyone left will not be worrying about the auction price of sportscards.

No, never again... the card companies long ago ruined that...maybe a 1 of 1 Mike Trout auto rookie 4 color patch card graded gem mint 10. If that even exists... and if he is in top 5 all time in top offensive categories and unanimous HOF first time ballot.... lol

I think it could happen. The '68 Ryan/Koosman and the '89 UD Griffey are already very popular, but not as much as the Mantle. Mickey Mantle defined the 1950s and 60s for baseball, and until someone else does that, there will not be another '52 Mantle. Also, I think that even with manufactured scarcity there can still be huge demand for some cards, take the 2008 Topps Kershaw for example.

Just my thoughts

The Ryan RC is already there. Only 1.2 or 1.5 CDN for this one!
