Goodwin Champion’s Art of Ages cards popular with collectors

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

Imagine getting a mini-sized rendition of your favorite artwork – pieces from Monet, Whistler, Matisse or Michaelangelo?

Upper Deck has created a special rare insert for 2013 Goodwin Champions – Art of the Ages. These cards have been extremely popular with collectors since its release, with eBay auctions ending in at least triple digits for the 1-of-1 cards.

Check out some of these sales:

Paul Cezanne’s Forest sold for $275

Henri Rousseau’s The Tabby – $216.64

Botticelli’s Birth of Venus – $320

Jacques-Louis David’s Death of Socrates – $220 (and the card was damaged).

These cards have been some of the most watched on eBay and have collectors (not necessarily card collectors) clamoring for one of these pint-sized renditions.

According to the checklist on, there are 298 paintings on the checklist. Only a handful have popped up at this point.

One can only wonder what Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa will sell for – arguably the most recognizable painting.

Here are several current auctions for 2013 Goodwin Champions Art of the Ages:

Claude Monet’s Sailboat at LePetit-Gennevilliers (pictured above)

Georges Seurat’s House Between the Trees

Portrait of Whistler with Hat

Henri Matisse’s Harmony in Red (The Red Room)

Michaelangelo’s Creation of Adam

    That is very cool. Plus, it looks like an easy education in art. I hope they sell well.

    Not even going to lie, if I saw the creation of man for sell I would pay easily $100, and I have very limited money. So I can’t even imagine how much someone who is loaded would pay for that.
