Pictures and info on the T206 Honus Wagner baseball card.
The T206 Honus Wagner baseball
card has been the most recognized and sought after baseball card for many, many
years. This card has been called the “Holy Grail” or the “Mona Lisa” among
baseball collectors. This baseball card was the first card to ever be sold for
over one million dollars.
There are only fifty or sixty of these cards in
existence today and one reason for this is because the cards were printed on
tobacco pieces. This was used as a marketing ploy for the tobacco company that
sold the card. Wagner asked that reproduction of the card be stopped. The reason
for this was that Wagner, although he was a smoker, did not want children to
have to buy tobacco products to get his baseball card.
The card was released in the late 1800s but it is
still very popular today. The most famous of these cards is still in prime
condition and was the first one to be sold for over one million dollars. The
card is in the best condition among all the cards that are still among the
public today. This card was sold again at a February 26, 2007 Orange County,
California auction for 2.35 million dollars. The buyer still remains anonymous.
