Honus Wagner on Pop History Dig

I came across a great article today on Honus Wagner at The Pop History Dig. The focus of the article is on the Wagner T206 baseball card and it is one of the most in depth accounts about the card that I have seen recently.

In addition to discussing the T206 history, the article also profiles Honus Wagner the player and some of the achievements that he won as one of the greatest baseball players of all time.

Prior to finding this article I had never heard of The Pop History Dig. The site contains a unique collection of short stories about popular culture - its history, its people, and its power. Everything from Thomas Edison's inventions to Oprah Winfrey's political endorsements are fair game here - and more. Music, sports, film, and television are also part of the mix.

I'm glad I found the site and congrats to author Jack Doyle for putting together such a great resource!
