SPORTS CARD SOLD FOR RECORD AMOUNT

A Mickey Mantle baseball card is now the most expensive piece of sports  memorabilia : NPR

(CBS News) – A mint condition Mickey Mantle baseball card sold
for $12.6 million Sunday, blasting into the record books as the
most ever paid for sports memorabilia in a market that has
grown exponentially more lucrative in recent years.

The rare Mantle card eclipsed the record just posted a few months
ago — $9.3 million for the
jersey worn by Diego Maradona when
he scored the contentious "Hand of God" goal in soccer’s 1986
World Cup.
