Honus Wagner baseball card The most valuable sports card in the world features Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Honus Wagner. Printed by the American Tobacco Company in 1910, the card is quite rare. Only about 60 are known to exist. Their scarcity can be attributed to Wagner himself. A non-smoker, Wagner objected to his likeness being used to promote tobacco. The company acquiesced to Wagner's wishes and withdrew the card from production--but not before a number had entered the market. The most splendid example of the Wagner Card sold at auction in February 2007 for $2.35 million.

2.35 million dollars for a baseball card? Amazing, and to think my dad used to tell me there was no future in collecting them!

Maybe you have a few of them lying around collecting dust, Guido. It's worth checking. Even badly worn Wagner cards are worth $100,000 apiece.

How about that woman who found that Painting in the trash sold recently over a million $s
