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.
