The Chesapeake Honus Wagner Card
In August, SCP Auctions’ company principals’ David Kohler and Dan Imler secured an astounding collection of more than 3,500 T206 Cards from a private collector living in the northeast. His lineup included the incomparable Honus Wagner T206, which was graded by PSA on-site at the 35th Annual National Sports Collectors Convention (NSCC) in Cleveland. It received a PSA 1 designation, making it only the 33rd example authenticated and encapsulated by PSA.
