SGC 40 VG 3 Honus Wagner T206 Fetches Record $791,000

As part of a three day estate sale from November 21-23 by Philip Weiss Auctions, a SGC 40 VG 3 Honus Wagner T206 sold for a record amount of $791,000.

According to Philip Weiss of Philip Weiss Auctions, "The only thing keeping the card from realizing a lot more money was its condition, which was SGC graded 3. Still, the pre-sale estimate was $500,000-$800,000, and it ended up selling toward the high end of that range. What added to its allure was the fact that it was fresh to the market, consigned by the original owner's family and never before offered."

According to my records, the last PSA 3 Wagner T206 sold was for $145,315 in 2000.
