A proud father moment: kids hold a century-old Honus Wagner

In my last post I discussed my alternative to THE Honus Wagner card and described why I think the 1909-11 Colgan’s Chips card/disc is a fair replacement in a collection that likely will never see the Million Dollar Card

Well, lastnight I cracked the Wagner from its SGC case so that I could submit it to Beckett Grading, my preferred grading company.

While breaking it out I explained to my kids the big deal with the t206 Wagner and tought them a bit about cards. When we were done talking, I let each hold the Wagner I recently acquired. It was a proud moment.

  1. That is really cool. I can only imagine the amount of hands it has gone through with time. It makes it that much more special.
