I would imagine that is probably around 7 milligrams or less of 14kt gold. 14 milligrams of pure 24k gold is worth about $4. So cut that in half, and then in half again, $1. Congratulations, you're rich.

The gold in that card is worth a little less than $40. Other collectors (ones that just don't guess and post untrue comments online) figured it out by destroying a scrub card and weighing the gold.
$1!!!...I am not going to bother with the things that you are wrong on, you are so far off and it is something that can be googled (both the amount of gold in the card and the price of 14K gold). Please research your information before you spread MISINFORMATION!!!
southpaugh....I just recently moved the Gold Records Wilt Chamberlain like this for about $150 cash and trade. You did well on that buy.

And my math was so flippin' generalized I don't know how anyone could take it be a solid figure. I rounded down and then just cut it in half twice, which I clearly stated. If you want an accurate figure, 7 milligrams of 14k gold is 23¢. My point was that there was no way that card contained $100 worth of gold, which is in fact true. Maybe not by the 99% margin I gave it, but still 51%. It is not like people are going to cash the things in for gold content. So the accuracy of my generalization means very little.
