1914 Ruth over 1909 Wagner?

Bleacher Report reported yesterday that a 1914 Babe Ruth Baltimore News card sold at auction for more than a 1909 T206 Honus Wagner card in similar condition.

Ruth:         $450,300
Wagner:    $402,900

Apparently there’s only about 10 known examples of the Ruth card, where there are several dozen Wagner cards out there. I guess I would look for the Ruth cards to continue to gain in value over the Wagner cards. Though the Wagner cards are much nicer to look at.

And, by the way, if you want to get in on this deal, there’s a T206 Wagner card for sale now on Ebay. Buy it now for just $435,000.
