Description

    1910 E98 "Set of 30" Honus Wagner (Green) PSA Mint 9 - Black Swamp Find. There is no question that Honus Wagner's star has been burnished over the passing decades by his residence upon baseball's most coveted tobacco card. If any other card bearing the portrait of the Flying Dutchmen can be as highly coveted, this card is the top contender. A million dollar price tag isn't necessary to draw your attention this nearly pristine beauty. Second only to the great Ty Cobb 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. This early relic is something truly special. As a key entry in the "Black Swamp Find," named for the region where this collection of virtually untouched E98 "Set of 30" cards was discovered, it stands as a virtually picture-perfect representation dating to the closing seasons of Wagner's playing career.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. One of just four examples from the find to grade Mint. There were none rated higher before (the best was a lone EX 5) and certainly there may never be another. The statements "pack fresh" and "condition rarity" to describe a century-old card in any other instance would be immediately doused as brazen hyperbole. It challenges every preconceived notion experienced card collectors have developed in the hobby to believe that this card has already celebrated its centennial.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
