T-206 Baseball Great Silver Series
The "T-206" series of baseball trading cards were produced from 1909 to 1911 by the American Tobacco Company. They were included in packs of loose tobacco and cigarettes, and are the most valuable trading cards in the world due to their rarity, size and quality lithography. The original tobacco card series included Hall of Famers Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson.
Elemetal has recreated these famous cards in a series of collectible silver bars. The series kicks off with the most famous and valuable card in the world, the Honus Wagner. Examples of this card have sold for over 2 million dollars! Why so much? Rarity. While the cards of some of the other 524 players in the series had hundreds of thousands distributed in those three years, less than 200 Wagners were ever released - despite the fact that he was very popular and an inaugural Hall of Fame inductee.
