T206 Honus Wagner Restored Authentic sold for $420,000
Memory Lane Inc. (Dec 15, 2018)
The world of "collectibles" boasts a myriad of "Mona-Lisa's" with respect to a particular hobby's most coveted artifacts.
Sophisticated art has its Rembrandts/Picasso's, Coin collecting boasts its ultra-rare 1913 Liberty Nickel, and Stamp
enthusiasts dream about possessing an "Inverted Jenny" airmail stamp. Indeed, these examples represent some of the most
elusive treasures in the collecting community, and no one would argue that the highly celebrated T206 Honus Wagner tobacco
card proudly stands tall as the ultimate baseball card extant. While there are a vast number of hallowed keepsakes in the
ever-growing card market such as the Baltimore News Ruth, 1952 Topps Mantle, T206 Ty Cobb Tobacco ad-back, Babe Ruth 1916
Rookie, T206 Plank and 1933 Goudey Lajoie (just to mention a few), none of these cards can possibly compete with the esoteric
reverence of a T206 Wagner marvel. This unparalleled tobacco heirloom's stature stands far above any of its brethren, ultimately
leading to its rightful designation as the "Holy Grail" of ALL sport cards.
