The card that went to auction today is one of the highest ever graded. Sports Card Guaranty (SGC) has it rated at "40 Very Good 3," which according to the SGC Grading Scale, means
"90/10 or better centering, corners are more rounded, but not excessive. Stronger creasing may exist. Poorer focus, registration and discoloration and staining are more noticeable."
Goodwin and Company states that there have been 43 Honus Wagner T206 baseball cards that have been graded and encased and only 5 other cards have received a higher grade. The opening bid was at $300,000 and at the time of this post is already at $643,078.00. The auction ends on April 19, 2012 and is expected to sell for $1.5 million.
Get me to 100 Facebook "Likes" and I will auction off this Autographed Evan Longoria Gold Glove Baseball. The opening bid will be $0.99. A nice consolation prize for those who can't bid on the Honus Wagner card; which should be just about everyone.
