Ronda Rousey cards go for a Premium, but her 1st Autograph 1/1 breaks the bank

Rate this Entry
Usually 1/1s go for a good bit of change, but for this 2012 Topps UFC Finest 1/1 Red Diamond Platinum FIRST AUTOGRAPH of Ronda Rousey went for a big price tag last month. Closing at the price of $10,103.00 and receiving 59 total bids, this shows you not only what the value of this card is, but also how much people are paying for the premium autograph of one of(understatement?) the best Women's UFC fighters we have seen. There have been other 1/1s that have sold from the same product, and here they are with the link to the sale as well.




Now, you're probably wondering, "Why did he include that last one, it isn't a 1/1?" Well, it turns out that card is Population 1 in the becket registry with a grading of 9.5/10. Everything on it was graded a solid 9.5 except the autograph and the surface receiving a 10.


To put this into perspective, here is what you could have bought with that money if you bought the $10K+ 1/1

(all card prices coming from Dave and Adam's Card World and are subject to change, prices are rounded up to the nearest dollar)


  • A little less than 16 FULL CASES of 2014 Topps UFC Bloodlines(16 total cases = $10,400)
  • 10 Full cases plus an extra box of 2015 Topps Allen and Ginter(10 Cases = about $10,000 and 1 box is $87)
  • 4 Full cases plus 2 more boxes of 2014 Panini Immaculate Football(4 cases = $9,200 and 2 boxes = $780)
  • Pay for about half of a new car(Average American sedans and the misc. ones you see for like $19K or less)
  • ENOUGH TO OPEN YOUR ONLINE BREAKING SITE?


$10,103........That's just less than what I'll make a year working at McDonalds! What's everyone's thought on this? Here is the link to the auction, DISCUSS AWAY!

    I think it's crazy, I've watched ufc since almost the beginning and she's pretty much the Gracies for women. Her stand up is terrible but it's improved a lot but everyone has to fall at some point and so will the prices so cash in while they can I guess. I dispise her attitude and seeing that she is an Olympic bronze medalist she would at least have a little humility but she has zero. Her talent and skill is amazing without a doubt but there is always someone bigger and badder around the corner. Like you said spending a nice used car on a card is ridiculous but clearly whoever is bidding is probably not too stressed about money :)
