1957 Hit Stars The Crickets. Buddy Holly PSA Mint 9.

Hey, I'm from the US Coin Forum. I purchased this card about 8 years ago and would like yalls opinion on it. Im not a card collector, but would like to list it. It was listed for a little on ebay, but no bites at my crazy asking price looking for an offer. Whats the best way to sell a top pop obscure card like this? I need to raise some funds after the 2 hurricanes. Thanks in advance. :smile:

    Just list as an open auction and see where the chips fall. Let the market set the price.

    This exact card sold for $210 in 2009. According to VCP one sold for $3700 in May 2020.

    very cool card. i think auction would be the wrong way to go.

    i would list it at $3k and discount it on a weekly interval until someone swiped it.

    Maybe Paul McCartney might buy it. Seriously. He owns all the rights to Buddy Holly's music. Is a big fan.

  • Bluejay, I wouldn't even know how to contact him. I can try though. My luck would be him having the other mint 9. It's pop 2/0. :D

    In a few of the Beatle biography books I've read it was stated that John Lennon got the idea for the name "Beatles" as an offshoot of the name "Crickets".

  • Bluejay and Joe, that's very cool! I didn't realize that until you pointed it out.

  • Well, I messaged Paul McCartney on his facebook. I hope he responds. I know he has a huge following, but no harm in asking, right?

  • Good looking card. Best of luck with it. I sure am sorry about the hurricanes.

    That was Ritchie Valens' (who died with Buddy Holly) song, not Buddy Holly's.

    I do think Peggy Sue was rocking her Chantilly lace that night though
