Unearthed ‘Chesapeake Wagner’ to be auctioned in fall

The 1909 T-206 Honus Wagner card has been called the “Holy Grail” of sports memorabilia. There are between 50 and 100 in circulation, and a Wagner graded PSA 5 sold for more than $2.1 million at an auction during the spring of 2013.

A Wagner card that was once owned by hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky once sold for $2.8 million, but it was later discovered that the card edges had been trimmed by memorabilia dealer Bill Mastro, who admitted last year that he altered the card.
