    Great looking card, congrats. If that replaced a slightly lower grade example I'm interested.

    Hello, and thanks. Unfortunately, I have ran into some financial issues, so this card is currently on auction at Ebay. Anyone interested, just search for the card....its not hard to find, since it's rare and the only one currently on Ebay.

    Thanks for participating! Hope you win it! Definitely a nice and very rare piece that is extremely hard to find. I know I will never own one of these again in this high of grade, just because of the rarity of the item.

    I will check it out too, but don't think I will have much of a shot if I'm bidding against curious george.

    Yes, it sold Saturday night for 1,549.00. Buyer got a great deal on it. Wish I could've kept it, but was needing money. The card will be missed and I will have to spend some time and money into my collection to help recuperate the loss. Unfortunately, there's no substitute for a Henderson rookie auto in a PSA9 grade. I doubt I will be lucky enough to even own another high-end Henderson rookie auto again at all, even in a 7 or 8 grade, but it is what it is.

    Sorry you had to let it go. You could always crack and unsigned 8 or 9 if he's signing at a show later.

    I'm not sweating it too bad. I still have valuable cards, including Jordan rookie, Shaq rookie, and others in high-end grades. I even have another Henderson, but it's a slightly lower grade and unsigned. I even just recently obtained an original 1948 Babe Ruth photo authenticated by PSA. One of a kind piece! I might make a thread on it and post it later.
