While a collector like myself may drool over certified autographs and refractors, I know that in this industry vintage is still the king of the hill.
While the T-206 Honus Wagner is still the greatest baseball card of all-time, a little known Babe Ruth Minor League card has been quietly overshadowing the Wagner card, which experts believe there are as many as 60 in existence.
The card, a 1914 Baltimore News, made its auction debut in the 80′s and sold for $6,000 dollars but by 2005 sold for nearly a quarter of a million dollars. It is believed that only nine copies of this card exist, in both red and white and blue and white versions.
This card will be available through Robert Edwards Auctions next week. You can order a free catalog HERE. I received mine this evening and its without a doubt the greatest thing I have ever laid eyes on. Essentially, it’s porn for collectors.
