Baseball Card Collecting: Wagner and Ruth

By Anand Palshikar

Over the years many rare baseball cards have taken the collection spotlight. Babe Ruths were popular in the ’90s but then the T-109 Honus Wagner baseball card took the spotlight. This card was canceled before more than 200 were made because they were sold with cigarettes and Wagner didn’t want to encourage kids to smoke. .

But recently the Babe Ruth rookie card has been popular because, well, Babe Ruth is pretty much the best player in the world and his rookie card is awesome. A Babe Rruth rookie card recently sold for $98,000 which is a new high so who knows what will come next? Maybe the Bryce Harper rookie card, (which I happen to have) will get the collecting spotlight soon. Nobody in the collection field knows what the future spotlights are, so the goal is when a card is a hit you already have it. So, the thing is, just get more cards. That is the goal!
