In what seems like a daily occurrence recently, another record was shattered for the price of a modern day single sports card, this time in the Kobe Bryant market.
A Beckett Black Label (BGS) 10 2006-07 Topps Chrome Kobe Bryant rookie card sold last night at Goldin Auctions for $1,795,000, the most money ever paid for a "Black Mamba" card. It was one of only two Black Label BGS 10's that exist of this particular card, as that is considered to be the most difficult grade to receive in the hobby.
The card was one of five that sold for over $1,000,000 during the first night of Goldin Auctions major catalog sale.
