1973 Topps #615 Mike Schmidt Rookie Card -- SGC 96

SGC 96 final selling price = $1802.77
SMR Value for a PSA 9 = $1150.
***No recent data on PSA 9 sales***

Notes: The 1973 Topps Mike Schmidt is a very challenging card to find in better than NM-MT condition due to chipping on the reverse side, uneven borders, a typical uneven (diamond) cut, and a notably softer cardstock. I chose this card as a more universal indicator of market trends due to its status as the only rookie card from the time period 1970 to 1980, with a value in excess of $100 in Near Mint condition.

Actually the main problem that prevents the Schmidt from MINT status is print snow. The other problems you mention are more general to the '73 set but varying degrees of print snow is very common on the Schmidt. It's also what downgraded mine to NM/MT.

Unregistered,

I'm not sure I agree. Certainly, on any card with a solid or dark background, there is a good chance that a significant print defect can be perpetuated, but in this case, I find the solid black reverse to be a larger impediment to finding Mint examples. Also, my experience with this set tells me that quality control was often very poor for 1973 high-series wax. In my opinion, the only place Mint condition Schmidt rookies can be found in is Topps factory sets or from vending.

Mark,

Thank you for the notification. As everyone probably knows, this is a FRAUDULENT eBay listing. I have contacted eBay and the auction should be ended within the hour. I am also going to recommend that the seller be booted.
