Graded Barney

A first (as far as I know) appeared on Ebay yesterday:

A graded version of the 2011 Heritage Barney no position card (link to auction here).  The seller has it as a Buy It Now / Best Offer with a price of $200.  That's twice the average price of the raw card.

You can see that the card has a grade of 8.5.  The price seems high for a card with that grade.  $200 for a 10 maybe, but not an 8.5.

I checked the PSA population report (you'll have to type in "Darwin Barney" into the search bar   for the report) to see home many of these have been graded.  I guess this is the only one since the card isn't even listed in the pop report.  My guess - it was just recently graded and PSA hasn't update their list.

I won't be buying this but I will be an interested bystander.

  1. That's not the best way to look, despite what they say. Go to POP Report, to Baseball Cards, to 2012 (not 2011), to Topps Heritage. Four cards have been graded: there PSA 9s and this PSA 8.5.
