Rare Honus Wagner baseball card sells for $1.32 million

WATCHUNG, NJ (AP) — A Honus Wagner T206 baseball card has been auctioned for $1.32 million in online bidding.

Robert Edward Auctions said Monday that 42 bids were placed by Saturday’s deadline for the card, which was rated as a three condition on a scale from one to 10, with 10 the best. The winning bid was for $1.2 million, plus a 20 percent commission.

The names of the buyer and seller were not announced. The company says the same card had sold for $791,000 at auction in 2008.

The card is from 1909 to 1911.
