Baseball Card Sells For Big Bucks

 

NEW JERSEY_A certain baseball card is capturing a lot of collectors, attention.

This 1909 baseball card of Pittsburgh Pirate Honus Wagner just sold for more than two million dollars at an auction house in New Jersey. 

The National Baseball Hall of Fame calls the card, the "holy grail." There are only about 50 of them in existence. 

The American Tobacco Company released them, but Wagner forced a recall of the cards. Goldin Auctions says the company didn't have the shortstop's permission, and Wagner didn't want kids to buy cigarettes. The cards were made as Wagner was on his way to winning his seventh batting title and about to lead the Pirates to their first World Series win.
