In the world of sports memorabilia, few items stir as much excitement as rare baseball cards, and the PWCC December Premier Auction is no exception. Two of the most coveted cards from the T206 set, known as the Big Four, are up for grabs, drawing the attention of collectors worldwide.
A standout in this auction is an SGC 1 graded T206 Eddie Plank card, one of only 39 to receive a grade from SGC, with an additional 21 graded by PSA. Despite showing signs of age and wear, including paper loss, creasing, and corner and edge damage, the value and rarity of the Plank card remain undisputed. Its appearance at auction is a noteworthy event, marking the fourth time this year a Plank card has been available for purchase. Previous sales include an SGC 1 Plank card fetching $75,000 last February and a PSA 2.5 variant commanding $168,000 in August.
Joining the Plank card is the PSA 2 graded Sherry “Magie” error card, another prestigious item from the T206 set. This card, featuring a misspelling of Sherry Magee’s last name, sits alongside the T206 Honus Wagner and “NY Nat’l” Joe Doyle cards as one of the most renowned rarities in the collection.
Beyond these historic items, the auction also features an impressive array of Michael Jordan cards, a testament to the enduring legacy and popularity of the basketball legend. Collectors will find themselves drooling over the following highlights:
