The card is described as one of the most important in the modern trading card era. “Patrick Mahomes has already won an MVP and a Super Bowl by the age of 25. He’s on a great team, has a great brand, and is poised to take over the reins from Tom Brady as the next superstar quarterback in the NFL,” PWCC Marketplace Director of Business Development Jesse Craig told FOX Business. The Mahomes card was graded by Beckett Grading Services. (PWCC Martketplace) “The National Treasures product is the most desirable modern card brand, and this particular card, with a perfect autograph and a jersey patch featuring the iconic NFL shield, is the only one ever produced, making it quite literally one of a kind.” TARGET TO STOP SELLING POKÉMON, SPORTS TRADING CARDS IN STORE OVER SAFETY CONCERNS The latest Mahomes sale broke a record previously set by a Tom Brady card. The rookie 2000 Playoff Contenders Championship Brady card sold for $3.1 million in June through Lelands. “Mahomes is young and has already had incredible success in the league. Collectors and investors are betting on him continuing his upward trajectory and winning multiple Super Bowls and MVPs,” Craig said. The emergence of the coronavirus pandemic last year spurred an increase in interest in the trading card hobby, which later branched to non-fungible tokens (NFT). Craig said even with the pandemic’s trajectory changing with the emergence of vaccines the industry is still strong.

We’re seeing more and more new and repeat buyers every month. However, this card is extremely unique. It’s the best Mahomes card on the planet. Rare cards have always performed well as investment pieces, and this card is no exception,” he said.
Ryder Ryan initially turned up his nose at this contraption that looks like an elementary school diorama on wheels. He had his own routine: a slow walk out of the bullpen gate followed by a jog for the second half. It’s his way of getting loose without tiring himself out. “I didn’t want to take it,” Ryder says. But international baseball rules are slightly different at the Tokyo Olympics than in the U.S. MLB pitchers can stroll to the mound and still have plenty of time to get loose, with a 2-minute, 5-second warm-up window—or 2:25 during nationally televised games. At the Olympics, they’re governed by a stricter clock. Relievers have just 90 seconds to be ready on the mound from the moment they exit the bullpen onto the warning track. “If you have to run, it takes time off the clock, so I took the cart,” Ryan says. Manufactured by Toyota, the cart is proving far more useful than the company’s other quirky technological contribution to these Games: a three-point shooting basketball robot. The cart actually speeds up the sport. The robot takes longer to shoot than Giannis Antetokounmpo.

The breaks between innings are brief, and the pitching changes move along quickly. “I loved it,” said Alon Leichman, a pitcher from Israel. He had never experienced one before, even though during non-Olympic times he’s a pitching coach for the exact type of team that might have one — the Seattle Mariners Double-A affiliate in Arkansas. Leichman is unlikely to go back there with a medal around his neck. He will, however, return to Arkansas with a story about flying 6,000 miles for a 15-second ride in a Japanese baseball glove. “That’s what’s unique about this tournament,” he said.

a Harley-Davidson scooter in Milwaukee, and a nautical-themed buggy in Seattle called Tugboat. In the 1970s, the Yankees briefly partnered with Japanese auto maker Datsun to drive relievers into games in a four-door, pinstriped sedan, cementing their place as the only baseball team without a sense of humor. The iconic, most lasting design, which spread through the league like stirrups, was the golf cart shaped like a half baseball with a baseball cap on top, propped up by a pair of bats. It offered style, comfort, and all the growl of a 12-horsepower engine. A 1967 Mets cap cart sold at auction at Sotheby’s in 2014 for $112,500, roughly the price of a Porsche 911.

But they were also so outlandish that pitchers eventually lost patience for them. Bullpen carts pretty much disappeared in the States after that. Pitchers at the Olympics had heard stories about them and seen photographs of relievers riding into games with their 1970s mustaches and pastel uniforms, yet never ridden in one. A couple of Major League teams have occasionally trotted out that retro feel in recent years, rarely straying from the classic designs.

At Japan’s Olympics, these vehicles aren’t just theater. They serve a serious purpose. They’re why ballgames here finish in a reasonable amount of time.
