Default '83 Topps Tony Gwynn is now a $2k+ card???

In PSA 10, this card is now going for over $2000. This blows me away. The pop is 671 for PSA 10, so it's not rare. Wow.

The pops on Luka Doncic and Zions psa 10 I believe are 12k or something like that and the price of those cards is bonkers. A 671 pop seems like a magee error rarity in comparison lol

Sure Costa, but those are current athletes. I get the rising prices on those, just like Trout. But this is a junk wax card of someone who is deceased and hasn't played in 20 years. I would've guessed $250 or something!

I think in the last few years people are starting to appreciate exactly how good of a hitter Gwynn was. I always felt he never got his due playing in SD

I donít consider Gwynnís 1983 Topps rookie card part of the junk wax era , IMO this card preceded it by 3-5 years . Interesting note I was offered this card just today PSA 10 for $2499 and I was accepting it about 1 hr after the offer and it was gone about 45 minutes before I accepted.
Like a lot of RCs his card is traveling upward . For example look at how fast the Upper Deck 1989 Griffey has gone up .

Gwynn faced Greg Maddux 117 times in his career - ZERO strikeouts.

Vs. Pedro Martinez? Another 100+ AB's - ZERO strikeouts

Dude used his bat like a wand!

Now that is beyond freaking amazing.

He had about 35 AB against Pedro. Not that it all still isn't amazing! I would take Gywnn over any of the old-timers (as the best line drive hitter ever).

And even with a higher '80s pop, Gwynn's cards are still highly undervalued compared to Pete Rose.

I don't consider '83 Topps "junk wax", it's not 1992 Leaf or Topps. 600 odd cards is very low considering the amount of 1989 Upper Deck Griffey Jr's graded in a PSA 10 - 3,903.

I think itís right on the edge of it. 7-8 years ago, Iíd buy Ď83 packs from BBCE for $3-4 bucks. But I just grabbed a wax box last week and it was a grand. So if it was junk wax, IT AINíT NO MORE.

I don't think my raw Gwynns and Griffey's in penny sleeves and top loaders will become PSA 10's but I'm going to have to check the boxes in my closets which sat there for 23+ years just to make sure....

It is crazy. I'm not sure what the deal is but EVERYONE keeps saying they can't find cards. When they do, the prices are high or it gets bought out from underneath them. I've been on the lookout for a Dawson Topps RC PSA 10, should have pulled the trigger a few months ago on it. It is showing up $1-2k more than early December. At least that population count is much lower than the Gwynn.

If you are talking about the 1983 Topps Gwynn listed on eBay for $3499 there is what I consider an interesting side note on this particular card / seller and what the seller did on this past Saturday / Sunday with the listing. Nothing illegal or unethical but he's just trying to maximize the price he can get for the card maybe without knowing about what possibly occurred with another listing for a Gwynn 1983 Topps.

So what is the side note?
