One billionaire philanthropist is leveraging celebrities to attract fan donations.
You wouldn’t want to put this baseball card in your bicycle spokes: A 1909 card of Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Honus Wagner, whose nickname was “The Flying Dutchman,” will probably sell at auction for between $1.2 million and $1.5 million. The card is owned by a Texas businessman who wishes to remain anonymous.
In his 21-year career with the Pirates, Wagner hit a career batting average of .327 and was known as one of the greatest players of the time. If you’re thinking anyone would be crazy to buy a baseball card for $1 million plus, it’s actually less than half the price of another Wagner baseball card.
