Records are made to be broken and in the current market, they appear to be broken every couple months. The “top spot” is a loose term and only carries temporary assignment as it trails from one sale to another. That said, however, here’s the card that currently holds the top spot for the biggest sale price for a modern sports card. Keep an eye on card sales; this record is likely to be broken at some point down the line.
