Honus Wagner card sells for $2.1M

A 1909 Honus Wagner baseball card has been sold for more than

$2.1 million at auction.

The T206 card, originally released by the American Tobacco Co.,

went for $2,105,770.50 in an online sale, Goldin Auctions said

Saturday.

While the company said the price was a record for a baseball

card sold at auction, a similar Wagner card in mint condition was

purchased for $2.8 million in a private sale in 2007.
