UPDATE: 1986 Topps Jerry Rice Rookie

So back in August 2020, I started the sports card investment journey on a platform called Rally Rd., which engages in crowd investing of collector items, such as high-end sports cars, sports memorabilia, rare books and comic books, fine jewelry, and more. My first investment on the Rally Rd. platform was in the 1986 Topps Jerry Rice rookie card graded by SGC as a Gem Mint 10. You can read about that in my original article here Going for the Goal with the 86 Topps Jerry Rice Rookie Card. At the...

Investing in the ’57 Topps Mickey Mantle

Investing in the ’57 Topps Mickey Mantle

I have once again found myself on Rally Rd, this time going after a card that is actually a little special to me – the 1957 Topps Mickey Mantle. Years ago, when I was about 9 years old, I was gifted a 1957 Topps Mickey Mantle from the nice old man up the street that I did yard work for. When he asked me what I spent the money on that I made from him, I told him that I spent a lot of it on baseball cards, and the rest I put in my savings – finding out that I collected baseball cards, he...

Having Blind Faith in the 1964 Daredevil #1 CGC 9.0

Back once again on the Rally Rd platform, this time looking at current and past offerings for comic books, and I find the 1964 Marvel Daredevil #1 graded by CGC in 9.0 condition.

So, once again Rally Rd has provided me something to invest in, and invest I did. According to the information provided by Rally Rd,...

So, literally two days after making my initial investment on the Rally Rd platform – the 1986 Topps Jerry Rice rookie in SGC 10 Gem Mint condition – I found myself back on the platform investing once again in a piece of sports card history; this time picking up shares in the 1939 Playball Ted Williams in SGC 8.5 Near Mint/Mint condition. Now I know, you all are probably thinking ‘I thought Paulie was a prospector’, and I am, however, passing up an opportunity to invest in a great piece...

I recently discovered an amazing platform called Rally Rd which engages in crowd investing of collector items, such as high-end sports cars, sports memorabilia, rare books and comic books, fine jewelry and more. One of the recent initial public offerings on Rally Rd was the 1986 Topps Jerry Rice rookie card, graded by SGC as Gem Mint 10 condition. Needless to say, I jumped on the opportunity to throw my hat in the ring and am now the proud owner of twenty shares of this card. If there hadn’t...
