Beckett has turned over its hoard of newly discovered T206 cards, including the Honus Wagner, to Robert Edward Auctions.
Collectors of the most popular pre-War baseball card set are always excited to see new finds of T206 cards enter the marketplace.
Over 500 of them walked into Beckett’s Dallas headquarters last month, having sat quietly in an Atlanta, Georgia family for years. Included in the stack was the ‘holy grail’, a Honus Wagner card that raised the population of the hobby’s most recognizable card by one.
Beckett has opted to farm the collection out, consigning it to vintage card specialist Robert Edward Auctions, which will feature the group in its upcoming April auction.
