All stats come from assets trading on secondary markets at Otis, Collectable, and Rally

Last Week

Fractional secondary markets

It was a mixed week for sports cards as golf climbed and everything else was flat to down.

All stats come from assets trading on the secondary markets at Otis, Collectable, and Rally

Auctions

Both Goldin and PWCC wrapped up monster auctions over the weekend. There were some records set for the blue chips (Mantle, Jordan, LeBron), and results overall were flat to slightly up. Some indications here the sports card market has bottomed (keeps in line with our chart above) and blue chips are back to leading the way.
