Check out this Quarter Million Dollar Card

s-NUNS-SELL-HONUS-WAGNER-CARD-large

An extremely valuable Honus Wagner baseball card now belongs to Sister Virginia Muller and the other nuns of Baltimore’s School Sisters of Notre Dame. The nuns will auction the card — thought to be worth $150,000 to $200,000 — with the profits going to ministries in 35 countries around the world.

The brother of a former Notre Dame nun left all his possessions to the order when he died. Those possessions included the Wagner card, locked away in a safe deposit box.

The T206 Honus Wagner card was produced from 1909 to 1911, and only about 60 are known to exist today. The nuns’ card is in poor condition. A near-mint Wagner card sold for $2.8 million in 2007.
