T206 Wagner Passes Million Dollar Mark; Mile High Card Company “Event” Auction Concludes Thursday, October 10th

CASTLE ROCK, CO - With one week left to go in the hobby’s premier event of the season, Mile High Card Company’s “The Event” Auction is certainly living up to the fanfare. “We were hoping to pass the million-dollar threshold by noon on opening day but it took only sixteen minutes to reach the mark and we crossed two-million before the day’s end,” said MHCC CEO and President Brian Drent. Speaking of million-dollar marks, the famed T206 Honus Wagner PSA 2 headlining the auction will sell above the milestone with bidding presently at $1,038,000 including the buyer’s premium.

All-in, the T206 Ty Cobb with Ty Cobb back is approaching $500,000, the one-and-only 1916 Holmes to Homes Babe Ruth card has already topped $150,000 and the autographed 1933 Sport Kings Gum #2 Babe Ruth PSA/DNA 9 MINT is presently fetching $122,000. Other key items that could challenge world-record prices are a 1909-11 T206 Sweet Caporal Eddie Plank PSA 4 VG/EX, 1933 Goudey #106 Napoleon Lajoie PSA 4.5, and a 1950-51 Toleteros Joshua Gibson PSA 4 VG-EX. Bidding has been steady throughout and is expected to gain strength right up to the close on Thursday, October 10th.
