Honus Wagner T206 PSA 5 Sells For $1.62 Million

Last week a Honus Wagner T206 PSA EX 5 was purchased for $1.62 million. The owner John Rogers, 35, of North Little Rock, Arkansas who said purchasing the card was the fulfillment of a decades-long dream.

According to Rogers, "I call this the holy grail of baseball cards. I've looked at a number of other specimens, sat in a few other Wagner auctions. But this is the one that makes collecting worth while. Since I was 8 years old, I've hoped and dreamed that one day I'd be able to get one"

The second highest bid was $1.3 million by an anonymous bidder in the Mastro Auction for the card.
