1910 E98 "Set of 30" Honus Wagner, Red PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 Black Swamp Find - The Final NM/MT+! Second only to the great Ty Cobb in value within this thirty-card issue, the Old Dutchman shows the fielding form that made him the first shortstop to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame. As is characteristic of the "Black Swamp" find of E98 Caramel cards, this one is close to pristine. The colors are so vibrant it's tough to believe that this card celebrated its centennial two years ago, and a magnifying glass is necessary to discern any hint of corner tip wear that affects only one corner. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5, one of two at this elevated plateau with one higher in red. This is the last opportunity to acquire a PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 of Honus Wagner with a red background.

The Black Swamp Find

Early in 2012, the most significant trading card find in hobby history emerged from a small Ohio town, neat individual player stacks of untouched cards, each banded by a short length of twine tied by a print shop employee a full century ago. Discovered in an attic in a box long forgotten beneath an ancient dollhouse, these stunningly pristine relics from the Dead Ball Era made their hobby debut in the August 2012 Platinum Night auction in Baltimore, providing the Heritage clientele with an opportunity outpacing even the most fanciful dreams of the pre-war trading card collector. Named for the damp landscape on the edge of Defiance, Ohio, where the cards served their one hundred years of solitude, the Black Swamp Find of 1910 E98's provides candy card collectors with the opportunity to add a scarce high-grade issue to their collection which was never available before.  Made famous by an appearance on NBC's "The Today Show" and just about every newspaper in the United States, the Black Swamp Find arises again to tempt the uncompromising collector in this Signature Auction.
