    Description

    A condition-rarity even tougher than his fabled T206!

    1910 E98 "Set of 30" Honus Wagner (Black Swamp Find) PSA NM-MT 8.
    Make no mistake--this blazing red beauty is just as pristine as its green sibling in the preceding lot, tucked away in the same lonely box in an Ohio attic for one hundred years of solitude. Only the slight westerly shift of the central image accounts for the difference in grades, but certainly it goes without saying that this silver medalist is still pure gold. The card dates to the only season of a six-year span that did not end with a Wagner batting championship, with 1910 honors going to another face on a fabled T206 rarity, Phillies outfielder Sherry Magee.

    This NM-MT representation is one of nine enjoying that lofty designation, each a product of the same historic find. Only two soar higher. The Black Swamp Find remains one of the most esteemed pedigrees of the pre-war era, so even those top collectors with concentrations elsewhere have been tucking a few away for investment reasons. It's unlikely we'll ever see anything quite like it again.
