The Card: Collectors, Con Men, and the True Story of History's Most Desired Baseball Card

The Card: Collectors, Con Men, and the True

Only a few dozen T206 Wagners are known to still exist, having been released in limited numbers just after the turn of the twentieth century. Most, with their creases and stains, look like they've been around for nearly one hundred years. But one—The Card—appears to have defied the travails of time. Its sharp corners and still-crisp portrait make it the single-most famous—and most desired—baseball card on the planet, valued today at more than two million dollars. It has transformed a simple hobby into a billion-dollar industry that is at times as lawless as the Wild West. Everything about The Card, which has made men wealthy as well as poisoned lifelong relationships, is fraught with controversy—from its uncertain origins to the nagging possibility that it might not be exactly as it seems. In this intriguing, eye-opening, and groundbreaking look at a uniquely American obsession, award-winning investigative reporters Michael O'Keeffe and Teri Thompson follow The Card's trail from a Florida flea market to the hands of the world's most prominent collectors. The Card sheds a fascinating new light on a world of counterfeiters, con men, and the people who profit from what used to be a pastime for kids.

T206 TOBACCO HONUS WAGNER PITTSBURGH PIRATES HOF ROOKIE REPRINT

T206 TOBACCO HONUS WAGNER PITTSBURGH PIRATES HOF ROOKIE

1909 T-206 HONUS WAGNER. Reprint of the World's Most Valuable Card You are bidding on a Reprint Card of the World Famous 1909 Piedmont Tobacco T-206 Honus Wagner Baseball Card. This reprint card is in Mint condition. Honus Wagner, who played shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates, was one of the five original inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Wagner batted over .300 in 17 consecutive seasons and was the National League batting champion eight times. Why is the 1909 Honus Wagner baseball card so valuable? The earliest baseball cards were produced and distributed by tobacco companies, and according to legend, the Honus Wagner card was pulled from the American Tobacco Company's 1909 set due to Wagner's objection to the use of his image for the promotion of tobacco products. It is estimated that only 50 to 100 of these cards exist today, and one was sold at auction in 2007 for a record ($2.8 million). You will see a Honus Wagner card among the baseball cards exhibited on the second floor of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
