Honus Wagner T-206 "Jumbo" sells for record amount

There is a new world record for most expensive baseball card of all time!

The PSA 5 T-206 ‘Jumbo’ Honus Wagner sold last week $3.12 million through Goldin Auctions.  This included a 20% buyer’s premium.  The previous high was the sale of the PSA 8 Gretzky/McNall T206 Wagner that is owned by Ken Kendrick, owner of the Arizona Diamondbacks.  That card, was trimmed by Bill Mastro, who is serving a prison sentence for his role in a shill bidding scam with his auction house.

Jose Fernandez autographed baseballs wash ashore

News reports say that a bag washed ashore Sunday containing 4 autographed balls and a checkbook from Jose Fernandez, who died in a boating accident last weekend.   He was a 2013 Rookie of the Year and 2 time All Star and was having his best season in the bigs this year.  16-8 with a 2.58 ERA.

But best of all, he was known for his smile.  The Marlins, and all of baseball have lost a great player.

Nolan Patrick Eric Lindros In the Game Jersey card 13/30

I was the lucky winner from this contest held by Becket Radio.  They have a sweet podcast that you can listen to here.  #Fatpacks

I got the dual jersey card from In The Game.    Nolan Patrick and Eric Lindros.
Great looking card and numbered  13/30.   Lindros is a Hall of Famer.   Nolan Patrick is a likely top draft pick for 2017.   He's the son of former NHL forward Steve Patrick, and nephew of former NHL defenseman James Patrick.  So he's got a nice hockey pedigree.

Shawon Dunston Jr. 2012 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects Chrome Autograph

Here's a great card I have in my collection up for sale.    It is the 2012 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Chrome Prospects Certified Autographs Refractor #BCA-SD Shawon Dunston Jr.   

Many remember his father who played for the Chicago Cubs in the 1980's.  Dunston was a fan favorite, and they tracked his batting average with the "Shawon - O - Meter" in the Wrigley field bleachers when it was on the rise towards .300.   

His son has shown some promise.  He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 2011 draft, in the 11th round. He's now playing in the San Francisco Giants farm system.
