Mickey Mantle dominated 2022 sports memorabilia news. The big story in the sports collectible world this past year was the record-shattering price tag for a Mickey Mantle baseball card. The rare 1952 Topps Mantle rookie card brought $12.6 million at a Heritage Auction in July. Rated 9.5 out of 10 for quality by authentication company SGC, it almost doubled the previous record of $6.6 million for a Honus Wagner card sold in 2021. The Mick’s card is the most valuable ever sold at auction, and it’s the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia overall.
