Few of us have the means to purchase a T206 Honus Wagner — there’s something about a six-figure price tag — but often those who do can’t find one.

Now, they can — and there’s no auction block necessary, either. It can be purchased — straight up — for $325,000.

The PSA Authentic specimen of the hobby’s Holy Grail — a card limited to roughly 60 copies — is up for grabs in Memory Lane Inc.‘s Own It Now event that launched on Friday.

The auction house has plenty of other treasures up for grabs — a Babe Ruth autographed baseball ($160,000), a 1911 T201 Hassan set ($90,000), a PSA 8 1948 Leaf Sid Luckman rookie ($70,000) and a PSA 8 1952 Topps Eddie Mathews ($39,500). Memory Lane will offer this type of sale four times this year — a first-come, first-served format that will also allow for offers to be made on the items in coming weeks.

For more information — and to see more of what’s up for grabs — visit Memory Lane’s site here.

    Nice card to have in any collection. More than likey, it is altered by being written on, on the back.

    Its a well chronicled restoration,,,, the original seller had it professionally restored using a high tech lab ( every change that was done was made publicly available),,,,, the buyer of it decided it was a sacrilege to have done that,,,,,, the buyer went and had another lab try and have those changes “reversed”back to what the card looked like when found,,,,,, what you see slabbed now is the result of the “reversal” attempt trying to get it back to its “original” as found state,,,,,, hope this helps your understanding on what the background on the card is,,,, merely google “restored honus wagner “and pics of this slabbed card will appear in 30+ stories,,,,,,
