Honus Wagner Card Sells for $2.1 Million at Goldin Auctions

The numbers 56, 61 and 3,000 are all special in the world of baseball.  You can now put $2,105,770.50 into that class as a 1909 T206 Honus Wagner graded EX 5 (MC) by PSA was sold for that amount by Goldin Auctions April 6 to become the highest price ever paid for any baseball card in a public auction.  In all, more than 30 record prices were T206 Honus Wagner paid in the auction which generated more than $3.2 million in sales.

T206 Honus Wagner PSA 5 MC Jumbo"To have surpassed the highest price ever paid for a baseball card at auction by nearly $500,000 is a spectacular outcome of an auction that riveted the hobby and captured the attention of media worldwide for the past month," said Ken Goldin, founder of Goldin Auctions. "With less than 50 authenticated Wagner cards out there, the opportunity to purchase one does not come around very often and it was obvious from the fevered pitch of the bidding that there was quite a demand for this card from many people," "We are honored to have been able to bring this card to auction and thrilled to present it to its new owner who has chosen to remain anonymous at this time."

There was also fervent bidding on a 2001 Derek Jeter Game Used & Signed World Series Bat which sold for a remarkable $37,486.13.  The only known Jeter game used World Series bat opened at $2,000 and stood at less than $7,000 entering the final week of the auction.  Similarly, a 2009 Alex Rodriguez NY Yankees World Series Ring far exceeded pre-auction estimates by selling for $50,398.88.
