Though his football career was short, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s University of Miami Football PSA 10 Bumble Bee card sold for $45,000 via eBay on February 6th. More known for his professional wrestling and acting career, Johnson himself was surprised by the sale.
“The story of how my (University) of Miami football card’s value continues to rise is surreal to me,” he said in an Instagram post. “I never made it as a player to the big dance, so this humbling irony is not lost on me one bit.”
Johnson won a National Championship with the Hurricanes in 1991 as a reserve but only saw one start in his collegiate career. In Johnson’s defense, the guy in front of him was Hall-of-Famer Warren Sapp.
Not much is known of the 1994 Miami Hurricanes set produced by Bumble Bee Seafood, adding to the rare collectible’s aura. There is only one other PSA 10 of The Rock’s 1994 Bumble Bee card up for sale currently, with an asking price of $100,000 on eBay.
