Dude- Jumbo T206 Wagner back on the block

Well, fulfillment of a lifelong dream is worth trading away for a profit of 900K apparently. If the card had a BIN I'd be all over it -- but I can't take a chance of being sniped, so I'll have to sit this one out.

Go for it. With ebay's policy you will only get 1 Non Paying Bidder strike if you don't pay. You can't even get a negative....On the plus side he is offering free shipping....

That (MC) designation kills it for me. My Wagners must be pure.

This might be a good idea if the Weiss Wagner sold for the 1.1M-1.2M that it could have, but now it seems a bit moronic....

Be well Brian

You could cross it over to SGC without the "MC" designation. happy.gif

An 85% profit in five months???

The economic slowdown must not have hit Arkansas yet.

(Of course, he will have to factor in all those pesky Ebay and Paypal fees.)

Does Microsoft cashback work for this type of ebay auction.

Well, buying it I suppose was a good publicity stunt. But these childhood dreams sure aren't worth what they used to be, right?

Hey BRIAN W

Here we have a Wagner with a "diamond cut".....now, does that remind you of another infamous Wagner ?

You have to love this part of the description:

"Above all, it must be noted that its "Jumbo" boundaries 1-7/16" x 2-11/16" serve, in a very real sense, as guardians of a NM/MT to MT card inside. Within such a lofty, but logical context, the piece's mild corner wear becomes a non-issue."

All you need is a razor and a steady hand to release the inner PSA 10. Somthing about that seems vaguely familiar. Hmmm... I am sure it will come to me.

Hi Ted,
Don't start any trouble this late.... I'm still working on my T206, 09, 10, and 11 post.... Not to mention the Coupons... You are killing me...

Be well Brian

As the most wise American philosopher, Yogi Berra, once said...."this is deja vous all over again"....

I've seen this scene before....20 years ago....Wagner....oversized....diamond cut ! !

It's like a recurring dream.

Thank you for looking!

Howdy folks! John Rogers here. Thank you to everyone viewing my lovely Jumbo Wagner on Ebay. Do I think it will sell at this inflated price? Hell no. It does draw plenty of attention to our humble seller page of "lexibell". I threw up a Babe Ruth home run bat at an inflated price last month. The listing led to a group of newly discovered Yankees bats including a Ruth and a Gehrig. Maybe another Wag will flush out. Thanks again guys and gals for looking and good luck to you all. Merry Christmas

hi

John,

Congrats on an amazing card and thanks for sharing insights on this board. couple nosy questions that i hope you dont mind me asking:

are you seriously looking to sell or simply testing the waters at a price you cant refuse?

generally speaking, what's next on your collecting horizon?

how has the publicity been with respect to this card? Positive?negative? a pain? fun?


Congrats again on what i view as "the card of 2008"

Eric
