Default Holy Grail?

Posted By: Darren J. Duet

I've heard many of the hobby's experts make statement's about this or that card being more scarce and desirable than the T206 Honus Wagner. My question is what card is the most desirable in the hobby today despite the hype of the past.

My vote is for the 1914 Baltimore Babe Ruth.

My Holy Grail is the 1887 Allen & Ginter Cap Anson. Great player, beautiful card, low pop, and very old.

I have been looking for a nice E102 Wagner fielding for some time.

A Grail card all depends on what you collect and what you like. For me, my Grail card used to be the m101-5 Thorpe because I've always admired Thorpe and it's one of the few cards the depicts him as a baseball player. Thanks to a previous Grail thread and a kind lurker, I know own this card Right now, my current grail cards would be the 2 Tarzan Bread cards I need for my player set, Hogsett and Carleton. Anyone have either they wanna sell real cheap?

The T206 Wagner is considered by most "in the know" collector's as the top card in existence -- as evidenced by the $$$ being paid for examples. My intention for this thread is to get an idea of whether or not the Wagner still reigns supreme, not necessarily what each of us consider "grail worthy" for our own collections.

Ok well the answer is no then. The T206 Wagner is the most overvalued card in the hobby. It's as simple as that.

added:
I can't see any card challenging the T206 wagner as far as price goes, so it will always be the holy grail, but maybe no rightfully so.

The t206 Wagner reigns supreme and will do so for the forseable future. It's the only vintage card that the average person on the street would recognize and actually know what it is. Within hobbies innner circle, there are no doubt cards that are more coveted and desired than the Wagner, but people outside the would have no clue about them. The Ruth card you mention is a perfect example. It maybe coveted amongst the hobby elite, but most average collectors are unaware of the card. Even people that only collect shiny new metalic cards know all about the Wagner, yet proabably know absolutely nothing about this Ruth card.
