Lewis Hamilton F1 Card Sells for $312,000

Formula One has been growing in popularity in recent years, which we have discussed on several previous issues of the Neustreet Journal. Partially due to the Netflix documentary series ‘Drive to Survive,’ Formula One has been gaining more fans in the US and that fan love has translated into trading cards. Some of the more notable current drivers in Formula One include Max Verstappen, Daniel Ricciardo, Lando Norris, and of course--Lewis Hamilton.

Lewis Hamilton is a seven-time F1 world champion and one of the most popular drivers in the sport. In a recent sale on Goldin Auctions, a Lewis Hamilton card was sold for $312,000, making this the all-time record for the highest selling Formula One card. This card is a 2006 Futera Grand Prix Next rookie card with a PSA grade of 9. The growth of Formula One will likely continue, so we could expect even more record sales in the future. Season 4 of Drive To Survive has just been released on Netflix and there are now going to be two US Grand Prix races - one in Austin and one in Miami.
