T206 Honus Wagner Explored in ESPN 30 for 30 Short Documentary

No card in the history of the hobby has generated more conversation and controversy as the T206 Honus Wagner. Now it's the subject of a high-profile documentary short from ESPN's 30 for 30 series.

Holy Grail: The T206 Honus Wagner was made by Prospect Productions. Running about 14 minutes, it looks not only at the history of the most valuable card in the history of the hobby, but the questions and allegations surrounding the most famous copy of the rare card. Celebrity collector, Keith Olbermann and author Michael O'Keeffe are among those interviewed in the film. David Hall, a PSA founder, is also featured.

  1. Nice short, great production value like most ESPN documentaries or shorts. Comes off somewhat negative towards the grading companies, yet graded cards will always be held in higher regard. The T206 are timeless and never get old with the other worldly photos and vivid colors. Not to mention the accomplished checklist.

    Baseball is wise.

  2. A well done, professional production. I do not like Keith Oberman; however, his commentary was perfect. He did a great job. The comments from PSA were exculpatory. There is no excuse for never being a professional, especially when you are touting your expertise.
