Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. This is one of only two examples graded at this level by PSA with none graded higher. Presented is an extraordinary W600 Sporting Life cabinet of legendary Hall of Famer Honus Wagner. This is a magnificent example of one of the most impressive of all Wagner cards. W600 Sporting Life cabinet cards have always been held in esteem by advanced collectors and are universally recognized as among the most substantial, highest-quality baseball card sets ever issued. Two poses of Wagner were issued in W600: in uniform and in street clothes. The offered in-uniform pose is a particularly noteworthy card as it features the same pose as the famous T206 Wagner. Bright, fresh, and clean, with slight even corner wear, some very light pinpoint age spotting, and a very tiny chip of surface paper loss in the middle of the left edge. On the left edge of the reverse are several small spots of paper residue and a small touch of paper loss, apparently related to the card long ago being framed or mounted in an album. This is an exceptionally attractive example of one of the best of all Honus Wagner cards, and would be a significant addition to any serious Hall of Fame or prewar card collection. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $20,000+.
