The Honus Wagner baseball card is considered the most valuable baseball card on the market. Though issued by the American Tobacco Company as part of its T206 series from 1909 to 1911, Wagner halted publication and distribution of the card. There are conflicting stories as to the why he had production stopped, but this inadvertent limited release has only enhanced the cards value over time. There are less than sixty copies known to exist. Most recently, a card in near-mint condition was auctioned for $2.8 million, while a card in poor condition sold for over $250,000.
