Wow!

Just imagine how much the bicycle must cost, if they're gonna use this card to attach to the spokes!

Just imagine how much it would sell for if it wasn't a fake.

If it weren't a fake, it wouldn't have gotten as much attention,, so it wouldn't be as famous.

Anyway, the impression I got from the 30 For 30 short wasn't that it was a fake; just that the edges had probably been trimmed.

just that the edges had probably been trimmed.

Yep. Personally, I think the Wagner is the most overrated baseball card in existence. It's all hype.

If I had a couple of million burning a hole in my pocket and wanted to spend it on baseball cards I don't think I'd get just one card. Would rather spend it on a lot of cards that might contain a highly valuable card. More fun that way.

This Wagner card isn't the "Gretzky" card that many believe was trimmed. The one that sold for 2.1 million is a slightly bigger card than all other Wagner cards that have been found.
