This legendary baseball card is a piece of American history
Have you seen this baseball card before? It’s currently the most expensive trading card ever! Collector Gianmarco Castronovo shares the details on this card, which has earned its place in American history books:
After selling for a whopping $6.606 million at auction on Robert Auctions by a seller identified as “East Coast Collector,” a T206 Honus Wagner card has become the most expensive trading card ever — sports or otherwise. That’s right: not only is this the single most expensive baseball card to ever exist, but the most valuable in the entire trading card collecting game. Wow! Now as far as Gianmarco Castronovo’s concerned: that’s pretty amazing! This card is most likely to have been printed between 1909 and 1911.
Shattering the previous record which belonged to a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle baseball card, which sold for $5.2 million.
