Presidential Hopefuls Net More Big Dollars in the Collecting World
Topps has been leading the race for presidential cards this year. And while the Hillary Clinton Upper Deck Presidential Predictors "error" card has been selling for more than $1,000, a Topps card has now stolen the two highest sales.
Topps Presidential Cut Signature Collection had a recent sale of over $3,000 for a Barack Obama.
The set includes:
Barack Obama (#'d to 15)
Hillary Clinton (#'d to 18)
John McCain (#'d to 15)
John Edwards (#'d to 15)
Fred Thompson (#'d to 15)
An Obama sold for over $3,000 on eBay, and a Clinton sold for $600.
As for the Upper Deck card of Clinton, the most recent eBay sales are at about $1,800. The sad part is, I could've bought one Buy-It_Now for $729 and almost did, but I can't afford a $700 risk right now. Oh well, that's how things go sometimes.
