2000 Review - T206 Year
Written by T206museum (December 24, 2000)
Time is running fast and year 2000 is coming to an end.
The new Millennium is a good beginning and should have
been considered as "YEAR OF T206". Some great T206 specimens, variations and collections
have been auctioned this year. Collectors may not see them available again
in the next few years and definitely won't happen in the same year.
One year after the closing of the most famous Halper Collection Auction by Sotheby's
that fetched the recorded $22 million-plus and not counting the later Internet sales.
The year 2000 will be most remembered for the sale of the
PSA-8 T206 Honus Wagner
that pushed past the $1-million mark. That sale was quickly followed by the even rarer
PSA-2 T206 Joe Doyle variation
selling for $178,598, both sales by divisions of MastroNet Inc.
This year also saw a all PSA graded sets selling for numbers
pushing the previously exclusive $100,000 barrier. A grouping of 520
T206 cards from the
Kirk Harris T206 Collection was auctioned for $1.1
million by SportsCards Plus, making it sort of the first set to top $1
The one and only
T206 Uncut Proof Strip which includes the Honus Wagner
was auctioned off by Clean Sweep Auction after the purchased from Halper Collection.
But the lot was withdrawn and the strip was sold privately after the auction.
Other than the Wagner uncut proof strip, the one of a kind
T206 Eddie Collins proof
which is in batting pose that was previously owned by Charlie Sheen
was auctioned by Leland's Auction and fetched $24,930.
