A trading card signed by Jay-Z has sold for a record-breaking figure at auction.
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”. You can see the post below.
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 made 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.
Cardi B revealed last week that she aspires to reach the same level of business success as the rapper, citing him and Rihanna as two of her “biggest influences”.
“[Jay-Z’s] from the hood and this man’s a whole billionaire,” she said. “And that’s just all about strategy and that’s just all about shaking hands, that’s just all about putting plans together.”
