    If you've got a spare $136k lying around, and you're a big fan of Jay-Z, then what we're about to tell you might upset you.

    A 2005 Topps Chrome Superfractor RC Auto 1/1 card signed by Jay-Z sold at an auction held by Goldin Auctions for $105,780 USD, which equates to ~$136,415 AUD at the time of writing.

    The card initially had a bid of $2,200 on it, before things got a bit out of control. The sale marks the all-time record for a non-sports/TCG card.

    The official description for the card on Goldin Auctions' website reads, "Graded MINT 9 by BGS, with signature graded “8” by Beckett. A unique Topps Chrome “Signs of Stardom” Superfractor, this collectible boasts an incredible signature by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z. The New York icon has signed the card in bold black marker.

    "The card’s BGS condition report: Centering: 9.5, Corners: 9, Edges: 9.5, Surface: 9. A statement on the card’s back by Topps attests to the authenticity of the signature, and serves as the item’s COA. The limited-edition piece is serial-numbered “1/1.” Mint condition." You can check out the official listing here.
