A trading card from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s University of Miami Hurricanes college football days recently sold on ebay for just over $45,000.00.
The Rock stated the following in his Instagram post:
“This story of how my UNIV of MIAMI football card’s value continues to rise has become so surreal to me…“Playing in the @NFL was my dream and playing in the Super Bowl was my even bigger dream. Of course, neither dream came true for me but years later… On SUPER BOWL Sunday my rookie card gets sold for 45K!! Congrats to the winning bidder. I never made it as a player to the big dance, so this humbling irony is not lost on me one bit.”
The card is graded PSA Gem Mint 10, and was made by Bumblebee Seafood and is perforated.
Johnson played at the University of Miami in the 1990s, winning a national championship. He then played briefly in the Canadian Football League before leaving for the WWE/F.
The Action Network’s Darren Rovell tweeted on how much the card has gained in value over the last few months, which you can check out below.
