Description



Our hobby's Holy Grail is, and always will be, the T206 Honus Wagner card that has captured worldwide attention ever since Wayne Gretzky and Bruce McNall bought theirs for $451,000 back in 1991. Just last year, another Wagner was sold privately for a record-breaking $7.25 million. It's the Mona Lisa of baseball memorabilia—and master photographer Carl Horner, who brought the image into being, is its Leonardo Da Vinci. Proudly presented here is the finest known example of the best possible alternative to holding a T206 Wagner. CarlHorner's iconic portrait of the "Flying Dutchman" immediately catches the viewer's eye among 19 total Horner cameos (including fellow Hall of Famers Vic Willis and Fred Clarke) on this 2-1/4"-diameter pocket mirror. It's the be-all and end-all of baseball pocket mirrors—a near-flawless, like-new memento with a crystal-clear, glistening surface. Slight oxidation areas on the mirror reverse are hardly worth mentioning as even the most advanced collector will be so overwhelmed by the stunning team composite that the mirror itself, while intact, is inconsequential to the desirability of this dominating relic. Frontally Near Mint to Mint, with exquisite eye appeal
