Description1910 E98 "Set of 30" Honus Wagner, Red PSA NM-MT 8 - Black Swamp Find. Certain collecting goals within this hobby have been up until 2012 a close to impossible proposition. Before this once-in-a-lifetime find of cards that emerged from an area once nothing more than a watery section of earth, less than a handful of career contemporary Wagner cards have managed to survive to earn assessments at the highest grade levels. Today, "Owning a Honus Wagner card in Mint or NM-MT condition" is now possible. Few would argue having a vintage Wagner like this is nothing short of the centerpiece of ones' collection. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, one of nine endowed with a NM-MT assessment with two grading higher. It must be emphasized that this E98 presentation of Wagner has somehow maintained dramatically sharp fidelity through the passage of more than a full century.
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.
