T206 Wagner Card Nets $1.5 Million in $19 Million REA Sale

Even when they’ve been attacked by a scissors, T206 Honus Wagner cards still draw a crowd ready to fork over some significant cash to own one.  Robert Edward Auctions closed out its Spring Auction late Monday night and when the dust settled, a trimmed copy of the world’s most famous baseball card had sold for $1,528,066.  In all, the auction of about 3,500 items generated $19,555,612 in sales.  Nearly 300 items sold for $10,000 or more.

The final price generated quite a short term profit for the consignor who paid $540,000 for it in 2019.  It had sold to David Hall, the founder of Collectors Universe and avid T206 collector for just $198,850 ten years ago.  Hall crossed it from SGC to PSA during his ownership.
