The Margin: Someone bought Mark Zuckerberg’s baseball card for $105,000

The sports-card market has long been dominated by legendary names such as Mickey Mantle and LeBron James. Could social-media titan Mark Zuckerberg be joining that list? An autographed card bearing a photo of Zuckerberg in his Little League days sold for $105,000 at an auction that concluded early Wednesday evening. With a 15% buyer’s premium, the total figure came to $120,750.

While the price hardly compares to the record-breaking $12.6 million that a 1952 Mantle card fetched earlier this year, it may prove to be an early benchmark for an item related to the Facebook and Meta
founder. At least that’s what Stephen Fishler, chief executive officer of, the company behind the sale, told MarketWatch a few hours before the auction concluded. Fishler pointed to the rarity of the item, which he said was the only known surviving example of the card from Zuckerberg’s youth. “There’s nothing you can logically compare it to. I could not draw a line between this card and anything,” said Fishler. He added that while 1952 Mantle cards are highly prized, especially ones that are in top condition, hundreds are known to exist, along with Mantle cards from other years.

The back of the card shows that Little Leaguer Zuckerberg was New York Yankees fan. But did he really have a .920 batting average?
