Registry Magic

There is no doubt about it that 1986 Topps baseball falls within the years of overproduced products.  Most of the cards from this set are barely worth anything and can be picked up for a few cents per card online.  In the hobby, there always seems to be an acception, and here it is.  This Nolan Ryan 1986 Topps #100 can be picked up raw for $0.99 on eBay, but grade in a Gem Mint 10 and place it in a slabbed holder and the result is this.  According to the PSA Set Registry there are only 8 graded this high which makes it a “must have” for the many Ryan collectors.  Its not often you see a card from ’86 Topps sell for this much.
