HISTORY: i AQUIRED THIS CARD IN AN ESTATE SALE IN 2003. i PUT THE CARD AWAY AND FORGOT ABOUT IT FOR OVER 15 YEARS. I CAME ACROSS THE MARINO CARD AND STARTED LOOKING INTO IT THIS SUMMER. I SOON REALIZED IT WAS VERY, VERY RARE. I STARTED CHECKING AND I LOCATED TWO OTHER SIMILAR CARDS, ONE IN ATLANTA, GEORGIAAND THE OTHER IN FLORIDA. BOTH OF THESE PARTIES TOLD ME THAT THEIR CARDS WERE NOT FOR SALE BECAUSE THEY WERE SO HARD TO FIND. THE PERSON I TALKED TO IN FLORIDA SAID HE PAYED OVER $9,000.00 IN 2015 FOR HIS COPY AND THOUGHT HE GOT A BARGAIN. BEING A BIG MARINO FAN AND COLLECTOR AND KNEW DAN PERSONALITY , Dan Had shown him his (PMG) #140 from his personal collection. So that four I know of.
THIS IS A CARD THAT ANY MAJOR FOOTBALL CARD COLLECTOR, ESPECIALLY A DAN MARINO COLLECTOR MUST HAVE!! As in found out,this card is extremely hard to find,
There were only 150 of these cards produced - My card is number 149 !!! THIS IS A VERY ATTRACTIVE CARD -- I WOULD PLACE THIS MAGNIFICENT CARD AMONG THE GREATEST MARINO CARDS EVER.
According to PSA grading records, there has never been a graded Dan Marino #140 "Precious Metal Gems" (PMG) card sold!Their have been four #140's graded by PSA, there were No PMG cards graded as a 9 or 10. The four cards were graded - 1 was a 7, the other 3 were 8's. Mine is an 8 and I believe it was definitely under graded.
I CHECKED BACK SEVERAL YEARS ON THIS SERIES, 1N 2012 BECKETT VALUED THE MARINO (PMG) #140 AT $500.00. WHERE AS THE JORDAN (PMG) # 23 WAS LISTED AT $550.00. WITH THE TWO CARDS VALUED ABOUT THE SAME. ANACCORDING TO PSA RECORDS IN NOVEMBER, 2016 A MICHAEL JORDAN "PRECIOUS METAL GEM" BASKETBALL CARD SOLD FOR $21,453.00. I NOTICED IN DECEMBER THIS YEAR, THE SAME CARD WAS OFFERED ON E-BAY FOR $175,000.00 - THESE SPECIAL CARDS IS ONLY GOING TO KEEP GOING HIGHER AND HIGHER IN VALUE - $$$ - OVER TIME!!
My card is magnificent!! THE NICE'S LOOKING DAN MARINO CARD I HAVE EVER SEEN.! Absolutely Stunning!!
I HAVE HAD THIS CARD EXAMINED BY SEVERAL MEMORABILIA EXPERTS AND THEYALL AGREED THAT THE CARD IS VERY UNDER GRADED.
THIS MAKES IT EVEN HARDER TO FIND THIS CARD, LET ALONE IN THIS QUAILTY. This card looks absolutely stunningin person, arguably Dan Marino's most beautiful card ever made!!
I have been in the Sports card business 30 years and have never seen another similar card! Their were only 150 produced !!
As rare and hard to find, this card would be a great addition to any ones football collection. There are 20 different players inclueded in this series.
I DON'T HAVE A COUNT ON THE NUMBER OF CARDS PRODUCEDIN THE SERIES, BUTPSA has graded around 15 cardsin the Football and Basketball series and most have been graded 7 and 8'S.
MY CARD IS BEAUTIFUL AND IF IT DOSE NOT SELL - i AM GOING TOSEND THE CARD IN FOR RE-EVALUATION.
