Record Setting Card?
One of the most famous baseball cards in the world is about to go up for auction. Robert Edward Auctions is set to release a T206 Honus Wagner SGC 3 in its Summer Auction. Expectations are that this beauty will break the record for highest price paid for a single sports card. It’s been six years since a SGC 3 Wagner has reached the auction, so this might be your only chance to acquire one of the most desirable baseball cards in history. Oh, and bring your checkbook because it most certainly will not be cheap.
Game-worn Treasure From 1933
Where are our Cubs fans at? Heritage Auctions recently announced they will be offering Woody English’s rare 1933 All-Star uniform in their upcoming Summer Platinum sale. This is a pretty unique jersey seeing as it was worn during the first All-Star game in MLB history. The last game-worn jersey from that historic night was Dick Bartell’s and it sold for over $28,000 in 2008. Bidding begins on July 30th and will close over a two-night period. The auction will include English’s jersey, pants and a signed photo of him wearing the uniform, so I’ll ask again, where the cubs fans at?
