Image
Maybe you have several millions of dollars saved in Bitcoin, and now you are looking for something to spend it on.

Here is a perfect gift for yourself, a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie baseball card. This PSA Mint 9 card is being auctioned off by Heritage Auctions. It is estimated to be hammered at $3,500,000 (plus buyer's fee).

If the card sells for this amount, it will exceed the previous record for a baseball card of $3.12 million.

But what makes this interesting is that the consigner and Heritage are willing to accept Bitcoin (BTC)   or Ethereum (ETH) cryptocurrencies as payment for this rare sports collectible. Of course, other forms of payment are acceptable also.

You can currently bid online with extended bidding ending April 19 and 20. The current bid is $1,850,000.

Fisher, founder and chairman of the money management firm Fisher Investments, former long time columnist for Forbes Magazine, billionaire on the Forbes 400 list, and author of numerous books. His latest book is The Ten Roads to Riches: The Ways the Wealthy Got There (And How You Can Too!) Second Edition, which I highly recommend. (It is my favorite of all his books, maybe because it is so different from all the other finance publications. Resources include websites and suggested books. It basically tells you ten ways, with all the steps, to get really rich, including “marrying a billionaire.” Lot’s of insight and lots of humor.)
