Default World Record Prices for Soccer Cards!

Pele Rookies sell for $33.6k (Quigol - PSA 8) & $26.4k (ALFA - PSA 8.5).

Wow! I always thought that these were undervalued when they were a couple of grand, but this is WAY more than I expected. Especially because the PSA 8 Quigol is really not his rookie and that fact that it has album residue on the back and should probably grade a PSA 2 or 3 (though the image is pretty good). Still, super high prices for these cards in my estimation.

Where do you see residue on the Quigol?

And yeah, high prices. But I think they will end up looking like bargains.

The pattern on the back of the card should not be there. The cards are blank backed with writing. I will try to post other back tomorrow.

I sold an Alifa PSA 9 in 2015 for $5K and thought I did well with it. I even had it posted here for a while with no interest. Damn - wish I had that one back!!

Yeah... that was a super high price back that... you did do quite well... I bought an ALFA 8.5 for less than $2k at an auction like three years ago... WOW... but I do not think that this will be a straight line up... There is more interest now because of the World Cup... things will likely come down to earth for the next couple of years and then go up again. I do, however, think that the days of $2k high grade Pele rookies are over.

Interesting to see these trends compared to the soccer memorabilia market here in the UK.


As most of you will be aware, soccer is the primary sport in the UK. By some distance, the main soccer collectible in the UK has, however, been programmes / programs with very little attention paid to cards (unlike parts of continental Europe).


Programmes surged in value in the late 1980s through to the early to mid 2000s and, for the very best programmes, prices could hit five figure sums. However, since then, although those very best programmes have retained their value, there has generally been a considerable decline in value - including for those programmes which, in UK terms, would still be considered as very high end i.e. costing circa $1k to $3k each at their height.


More so, thereís a concern as to collectors ageing and few new collectors entering the hobby - in some respects not too dissimilar to some of the discussion in the US - and exacerbated by the decision of an increasing number of soccer clubs to stop producing programmes in favour of online media.

At least before the Messi/Ronaldo era, the supply of soccer cards seems so tiny compared to the so-called major sports that if there is even a modest uptick in demand, I would think that could translate into substantial price increases. Of course that's a big if.

Iím not sure if itís that tiny or if people just havenít bothered to find and sell them yet.

Of course, the populations of countries like Brazil and Sweden are much smaller than that of the US, so presumably production was lower.

It seems like we discover new sets and cards every day...

Just to pick 1991 at random, I would be very confident that the ratio of Chipper Jones rookies to Zidane rookies is close to infinity.
