T206 Honus Wagner Highlights New Memory Lane Sale
The iconic T206 Honus Wagner card immediately brings dollar signs to mind, even among non-collectors. The card had long been considered the "holy grail" of the collecting world due to its scarcity, historical significance and lofty value.
High-dollar vintage collectors who don't like dealing with the uncertainty of auctions can rest easy with Memory Lane's current offering. The card is available as a direct purchase in Memory Lane's I Own It Now catalog with no bidding required.
The catch with this particular process is that you must pay the listed price and own it immediately or take a chance that no one will scoop it up during the two week-window. If the item is still available on October 17th, collectors can start making offers.
In order to bring the Wagner card home today, collectors must fork over a cool $850,000. If that price is too steep, many other high-end and mid-level items are included in the sale that started this afternoon. The catalog is ripe with some of the most sought-after rookie cards in all of sports, as well as other great pieces of memorabilia.
