1909 Honus Wagner T206 Baseball Card on Display at Barrett Jackson Collector Car Auction

When thousands of classic car aficionados gather at the Barrett Jackson: The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auction this week at the Westwood of Scottsdale, the most valuable item on the show floor may not have wheels. That’s because, Goldin Auctions will be displaying a rare 1909 Honor Wagner T206 baseball card that is expected the fetch upwards of $2 million in the company’s February 2013 auction. The Wagner, graded EX 5 (MC) by PSA making it one of the three highest graded Wagner T206 cards in the world, will be on display from January 18-20 at the duPont Registry booth (#9).
Issued by the American Tobacco Company, from 1909-11 as part of the T206 series, less than 200 Wagner cards were ever issued. Production of the card was halted after Wagner, the Pittsburgh Pirates star shortstop, requested the tobacco company to stop including his image in the cigarette packs. As a result, there have been less than 60 authentic Wagner cards submitted for authentication and/or grading by the major card grading companies. In 2008, this exact card sold for $1.62 million.

T206 Jumbo Honus Wagner

“With less than 60 authenticated Wagner cards out there, the opportunity to purchase one does not come around very often. The few owners recognize the investment potential of these ultra-rare, highly sought after collectibles and rarely sell them. It is easily the most famous of all trading cards and the ultimate addition to any collection,” said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions. “The fact that this Wagner carries a grade of EX 5 by PSA puts it in a class with just two others that have ever been graded. We know the collectible car fans will appreciate the opportunity to see such a famous piece of American history.”

To arrange an interview with Ken Goldin about the Honus Wagner T206 baseball card on the show floor between Jan. 18-20, contact Doug Drotman at 631-462-1198 or [email protected].
