The Rock is officially having his full-circle football moment, serendipitously on Super Bowl Sunday, too. The WWE wrestler turned Hollywood star took to Instagram to showcase his University of Miami rookie card, which sold for a whopping $45,100 USD after 50 bids at PWCC Auctions.
Dwayne Johnson‘s Bumble Bee Perforated card was given a MINT 10 grading and is the latest example of the ever-booming trading card industry. Just last December, HYPEBEAST reported that the exact card sold for only $14,000 USD.
The WWE legend posted on Instagram, “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. #unpredictablelife #94”
