Jay-Z sells trading card for $100k


Online sports card platform SlabStox made a “public service announcement” on Instagram this week to reveal that an autographed card of the rapper had gone under the hammer at Goldin Auctions.

The company said that the collectable sold for $105,780 (£76,278), marking “the all-time record for a non-sports/TCG [tradng card game] card”.

An earlier Instagram post said that there had been a previous bid of $2,200 (£1,586) before the huge increase to six figures.

A description of the ‘Signs Of Stardom’ card on Goldin Auctions’ official website reads: “This collectable boasts an incredible signature by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z. The New York icon has signed the card in bold black marker. The card’s BGS condition report: Centering: 9.5, Corners: 9, Edges: 9.5, Surface: 9.

“A statement on the card’s back by Topps attests to the authenticity of the signature, and serves as the item’s COA. The limited-edition piece is serial-numbered ‘1/1.’ Mint condition.”

Meanwhile, Jay-Z’s net worth recently shot up by 40 per cent following two major deals by the rapper and businessman – including the sale of his controlling stake in Tidal to mobile payments company Square.

According to Forbes, Jay’s net worth increased from $1 billion to $1.4 billion.
