Honus Wagner T206 PSA 1 Sells for Record Price

Anytime a Honus Wagner T206 card is up for sale it’s notable. One recently was sold and even in low-grade condition, it’s clear that the Wagner is still an incredibly desirable card.

A PSA 1 Wagner recently headlined a Mile High auction and fetched $1,169,875. According to Joe Orlando, that’s the highest amount ever paid for the card in that grade.

The card is certainly a low-grade one. But as someone that collects mostly low-grade cards, it presents quite well. There are the creases that you see in most graded 1 cards but they are not excessive. Better yet are that the creases don’t really interfere with the image itself. Overall, you’ve got a really nice picture of Wagner on the card and it could certainly be a lot worse.

The strong price for the iconic card is another indicator that the market is quite strong. Yes, it’s a Wagner and yes, even a somewhat presentable low-grade one. But that is still a very healthy amount that sets a new benchmark for that grade.
