The sale, which closed on June 20, was part of Lelands’ Spring Classic 2020 auction.

It actually took a few years for this particular card to surface. It was pulled in December, 2019 during a group break through Jaspy’s Case Breaks.


This sale smashes the previous high price for both a 2015-16 The Cup McDavid and modern hockey card, period. A different copy of the card, graded Gem Mint PSA 10, sold in May, 2018 for $55,655.
