Well, fulfillment of a lifelong dream is worth trading away for a profit of 900K apparently. If the card had a BIN I'd be all over it -- but I can't take a chance of being sniped, so I'll have to sit this one out.

Go for it. With ebay's policy you will only get 1 Non Paying Bidder strike if you don't pay. You can't even get a negative....On the plus side he is offering free shipping....

That (MC) designation kills it for me. My Wagners must be pure.

This might be a good idea if the Weiss Wagner sold for the 1.1M-1.2M that it could have, but now it seems a bit moronic....

An 85% profit in five months???

The economic slowdown must not have hit Arkansas yet.

(Of course, he will have to factor in all those pesky Ebay and Paypal fees.)

Well, buying it I suppose was a good publicity stunt. But these childhood dreams sure aren't worth what they used to be, right?

Here we have a Wagner with a "diamond cut".....now, does that remind you of another infamous Wagner ?

You have to love this part of the description:

"Above all, it must be noted that its "Jumbo" boundaries 1-7/16" x 2-11/16" serve, in a very real sense, as guardians of a NM/MT to MT card inside. Within such a lofty, but logical context, the piece's mild corner wear becomes a non-issue."

All you need is a razor and a steady hand to release the inner PSA 10. Somthing about that seems vaguely familiar. Hmmm... I am sure it will come to me.

As the most wise American philosopher, Yogi Berra, once said...."this is deja vous all over again"....

I've seen this scene before....20 years ago....Wagner....oversized....diamond cut ! !

It's like a recurring dream.

Howdy folks! John Rogers here. Thank you to everyone viewing my lovely Jumbo Wagner on Ebay. Do I think it will sell at this inflated price? Hell no. It does draw plenty of attention to our humble seller page of "lexibell". I threw up a Babe Ruth home run bat at an inflated price last month. The listing led to a group of newly discovered Yankees bats including a Ruth and a Gehrig. Maybe another Wag will flush out. Thanks again guys and gals for looking and good luck to you all. Merry Christmas

John,

Congrats on an amazing card and thanks for sharing insights on this board. couple nosy questions that i hope you dont mind me asking:

are you seriously looking to sell or simply testing the waters at a price you cant refuse?

generally speaking, what's next on your collecting horizon?

how has the publicity been with respect to this card? Positive?negative? a pain? fun?


Congrats again on what i view as "the card of 2008"

Eric

John,
How did the Ruth home run bat led to a new Ruth and Gehrig gamers being found. Any good story behind them.

Well, all I can say is that now I'm motivated to start rooting around in my grandfather's attic and find that Wagner he told me left up there. I'll report back soon.

Eric->Mostly everything has been positive. I ran into some local negativity. One of the businesses my wife and I own are a large chain of childcare facilities. We're the largest childcare provider in the South. Just a week before the news hit, we raised our weekly rates on close to 1,000 working class families. The reason for the price hike was that it was time. It had been 4 years since the last rate hike. Some of the families felt the rate hike was tied into the Wag purchase. We also have a GM dealership. A lot of customers wanted a cheap deal on a car after that. Besides that, all positive. The news stories led to a phenomenal purchase in Michigan. As for the card being for sale....sure, anything is for sale. I probably won't reply again, bidding in Mastro. Thank you, John

John,

Congratulations on the Wagner, and thank you for posting your comments.

Now, regarding this comment in your post:

"I threw up a Babe Ruth home run bat at an inflated price last month."

You might want to get some Ipecac or Kaopectate for that wink.gif


Steve

Hey John. Loved the story in the AR Dem-Gazette about the Honus party. I was wondering how the guy bringing it home on the plane sat still with Wags in his pocket!!

BTW, do you have a BBC store in NLR?

I think you should pick up this card too, while you're at it.

Wonderful card easily one of the best looking examples out there IMO.

Still not sure that posting on eBay brings mega items out of the wood work and into your collection...I think that's a bit of a stretch but hey I could be wrong.

Cheers,

John

Nice to know when I'm in AK once a month on business that I'm flying over Mr. Wagner somewhere below.

I agree with earlier post - the cut kills it. Would never consider the card if I had the budget.
