Honus Wagner Card Sells for $262,000

Anyone else remember thumbing through Beckett as a kid wishing they had one of these bad boys?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101105/..._baseball_card

BALTIMORE A rare Honus Wagner baseball card that was bequeathed to an order of Roman Catholic nuns has sold at auction for $262,000.

The Baltimore-based School Sisters of Notre Dame put the card up for sale after inheriting it from the brother of a deceased nun. The sale price exceeded the expectations of auctioneers at Dallas-based Heritage Auction Galleries.

The nuns will receive $220,000 from the sale. The total sale price includes a 19.5 percent buyer's premium. Sister Virginia Muller, who was entrusted with the card, says the proceeds will go to the order's ministries in more than 30 countries around the world.

Collector and card shop owner Doug Walton of Knoxville, Tenn., bought the card.

About 60 of the T206 Honus Wagner cards, produced between 1909 and 1911, are known to exist.

And they'll give every penny of it to the sick and the poor. IMHO that part of it is a bigger story than the amount of money for which the card was sold.

I had a Cracker Jack Shoeless Joe Jackson that I bought as a teenager and sold a few years ago for very serious coin. Worth far more than any other card I owned, though I did have a fairly good collection.

The thing was just...weird. It looked pretty good, though it had some issues with corners, etc. But it was as if someone stuck it in a vise and squeezed it down and left it there for a couple days. It was just....limp. But it was authentic for all that.

Now I'm kind of wondering if I shouldn't have held onto those cards so my boys could enjoy them. Oh well.

This one is, obviously, in far, far better shape than the one I had was in.
