Most Expensive Baseball Card

honus-wagner.gif Honus Wagner

The Honus Wagner baseball card (T260 above) is the world’s most expensive.  Known as the “Holy Grail” or Mona Lisa of baseball cards, one in mint condition recently broke a record at auction.  It is extremely rare.  Only about 50 or so are said to exist.  The reason for the rarity:  Honus Wagner (1874-1955) objected to the card produced by a tobacco company, either because he was a non-smoker or did not get paid.  He took them to court and won. The company was ordered to destroy the cards.  They apparently got most of them.  The ones that got away will pay you more than Honus got in his entire life.

Cost: $2.8 million
