1910 PC796 Sepia Honus Wagner Postcard

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,998

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Outstanding example of one of the key cards from this rare and popular 25-card sepia-tone postcard set, featuring the legendary Hall of Famer Honus Wagner. This card is one of the highlights from a collection of nine PC796 postcards that have just recently been discovered by a noncollecting family, and are being offered as seven different lots in this auction. The manufacturer of this sepia-toned postcard series is unknown. The PC796 set is one of the most striking sets of the era. This is a magnificent example of one of the most impressive of all Wagner cards. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with a little corner wear. The card has a small, light stain on the right border, the faintest hint of impressions from storage in an old-fashioned style photo album (the type in which cards are "tipped in") in the upper left and lower right corners, and a few very small, light creases visible only upon close inspection. The card has never been mailed and has no writing on its traditional postcard reverse. This is an exceptionally attractive card of Honus Wagner from one of the most distinctive and popular of all postcard issues, and would be a significant addition to any serious Hall of Fame or prewar-card collection. Dimensions: 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,998
