The auction ended later than planned, but that didn’t stop the record prices. A 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Mike Trout Red Refractor Autograph sold for $900,000 on May 20 as part Goldin Auctions’ Spring 2020 Premium Auction.

The hammer price on the card was $750,000. Factoring in the buyers premium, the total cost of the card put it at $900,000.

You may have heard of the guy that sold it for the record breaking price, his name is Vegas Dave. You've probably heard of his girlfriend Holly Sonders of Golf Channel fame.

She's with him for the money.
With that sort of money I'd be lookin' to do a fair bit better.... That face......eeeesh. Not to mention the lack of hips and the fake tits. That might be a man.....baby!

To each their own, but you’d think he’d buy some decent clothes...not surprising for someone who refers to themselves as “Vegas Dave.”

Never heard of his backwards hat gf...

I gotta ask, is this Mike Trout a big deal? I don’t follow baseball and have never heard his name mentioned before. I get that rookie cards are the ones to collect but shouldn’t the person be in the Hall of Fame for that kind of money? Lou Gehrig,Honus Wagner or Mickey i understand the appeal to collecting.

Rookie of the year, 3x AL MVP (4 2nd place finishes), 7x silver slugger, and hit 30 HR in 6 of 9 seasons.

He's a hall of famer at age 28.

My question, so how much more is the card going to go up from the $900,000 price tag?

Lot of coin for that card. But hey, life is short - if you got the $$$ go for it.

Modern tulip mania, speculation can be amusing. It is a piece of cardboard...
