Wow!

The most coveted baseball card of all-time proved its worth once again early Saturday morning, as the 1909-11 T206 Honus Wagner card sold for $2.1 million in an online auction.

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.
