Every once in a blue moon, someone unearths a rare find in the sports collectibles arena that captures headlines. Such was the case in August when a veteran sports card aficionado with 40-plus years of collecting experience decided to consign to SCP Auctions one of his prized possessions: a 1909-11 T206 Honus Wagner card.
In addition to this largely unknown specimen of the hobby’s most legendary card, this astounding collection of more than 3,500 raw T206 cards includes Plank as well as multiples of rarities such as Magie, Demmitt, O’Hara and others.
Three near-complete T206 sets have been assembled from the collection which also includes sets, near-sets, lots and singles from other significant tobacco issues such as T201, T202 and T205, and more.
SCP Auctions is proud to present this incredible assortment as part of its 2014 Fall Premier auction, which starts Nov. 19 and runs through Dec. 6.
