Players are in different poses, uniforms, and even teams (if traded during the production time). Measuring 1 7⁄16 by 2 5⁄8 inches (3.7 cm × 6.7 cm). Setting the standard tobacco card size standards.
1909-1911 T206 Baseball Cards: Value
The value of these cards has led to many counterfeit reproductions throughout the years. Particularly the Honus Wagner T206 card. It is the most valuable baseball card in all of existence. Valued closely to $100,000 easily – for damaged cards. Partly due to Wagner’s immortality in Baseball. He is one of the original first five Hall of Fame inductees. As well as, this particular portrait card being one of the scarcest cards in the most vintage and iconic card sets. There’s only 1 Card in this set of Honus “Hans” Wagner. Hall of Famer John McGraw once stated Honus Wagner was “the nearest thing to a perfect player no matter where his manager chose to play him.” Playing EVERY position on the diamond except Catcher.
