Bidding on the trimmed T206 Honus Wagner at Robert Edward Auctions is at $760,000.
The card last sold at auction in 2019 for $540,000. With nearly two weeks of bidding left, the final price is likely to be in excess of $1 million.
The card will be on display Thursday night during a “Collectors Night” gathering at Brigandi Collectibles in New York City.
Continuing a trend, Fanatics has pushed out another product drop, with collectors having the chance to commit to buy a limited number of boxes of a certain product over a 24-hour period.
A couple of days after offering blaster boxes of 2021 Panini Mosaic Football, the company is offering a Mega Box version until 2 PM Eastern time on Thursday.
Boxes are priced at $69.99 via this page with collectors given the option to purchase 1-4 boxes.
Credit cards aren’t charged until the boxes are divvied up amongst those who entered the drop. Not everyone who commits to buy will have their order fulfilled.
The 2021 Mega Box Mosaic product offers ten packs with four cards per pack. Megas offer 10 exclusive Camo Red parallels, 1-2 Mosaics, seven inserts and 1-2 Silvers. While no autographs are guaranteed, there are two packed in each case, according to Fanatics.
Scripts and Rookie Scripts autographs are also found only in retail boxes like the Megas and blasters. Other exclusive inserts include Will to Win, Got Game?, Bang!, Touchdown Masters and HoloFame.
Panini also sold Mega Box exclusives at Walmart and Target that are now being offered on eBay.
