The $2.35 Million Baseball Card of Honus Wagner

A 1909 tobacco card of baseball great Johannes Peter “Honus” Wagner has been sold for an incredible $2.35 million. The card, once owned by hockey player Wayne Gretzky, is one of only about sixty in existence that features “The Flying Dutchman.”

Wagner, who played as a shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates, was one of the first players to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and is considered one of the greatest players in the history of the sport.
