1996 SI For Kids #536 Tiger Woods - Rookie Card - PSA MINT 9
Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $940
Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Out of the 1,227 submissions graded by PSA, just 144 cards received the MINT 9 grade, and only 24 have graded higher. Presented is an exceptional high-grade example of the December 1996 “Sports Illustrated for Kids” Tiger Woods rookie card. Much has been written about the unusual method of issue of the “true” rookie card of this amazing athlete. This card must have been meticulously removed from the magazine. This is a gorgeous card, with well-defined perforations, bright and solid color, and only the slightest trace of yellow border along the right edge, as issued. This 1996 card, though of recent origin, is Tiger’s “real” rookie card, and has come to be recognized by collectors as a modern classic. Reserve $100. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $940
