It will be interesting to see what happens the next time one of these hits the BST.

Default I have a Piedmont with Howe’s stamp on the back

Sure it’s a 1 of 1. Probably worth at least $100,000 in today’s market.

Totally confused here -

Does anybody have a clue why this card is "all of a sudden" a hot commodity?

Never question the momentum trade. Just give in to the hysteria.

Does he know his relative's name is "Louis" Steve Evans. Louis Evans is a common in a ton of sets. Someone must think it's Joe Jackson, or an early minority player. If I found out Red Murray was my relative, I could quietly go about my business scooping up as many of his cards as I wanted.

I am offering a full refund to the party who purchased my

I guess this (whatever this is) has begun to move to the next phase. It looks like only one has sold today. No matter, though.

"...hey, look at the comps on this card..."

No, $430 for a PSA 4, $420 for a SGC 3.5, $142 for a PSA 2. Doubt it has anything to do with this moron overpaying many times over for each Evans.

This fella could be blowing his money on coke, or sports cars, or casinos, or Tyler Herro refractor cards, or NFT's, or a million other things where his investment ends up at the bottom of the Marianas Trench.

If he wants to blow it by over-paying on his namesake from a well collected tobacco card set...well, the more power to him.

I just wish I had 5 or 6 to sell him myself.

Hey fella's. I've just discovered my given birth name is "Honus Wagner", but my parents decided to change it before my 1st birthday because people kept telling them that it sounded "antiquated".

I'm hoping to chase down as many T206 Honus Wagner's as possible. Not trying to corner the market or anything. Just want a few to hand out to my family members.

Willing to break the market on these and offer $2000 apiece. Must be centered and presentable. Don't come at me with any junk!

I have a consignor who is looking to unload his Steve Evans T206 Sweet Cap 350/30 PSA 3. He is asking me what should we list it at? With this make no sense craze going on, what is a good price to list this card at?

50 billion trillion dollars…….and then put a best offer on it. Let’s see how high he’s willing to go.

Default ChatGPT

Here is what ChatGPT has to say on the matter...


Is someone other than Steve Evans pictured on the T206 baseball card?


Yes, Steve Evans is not pictured on the T206 baseball card. The T206 set, produced between 1909 and 1911, features various baseball players, but Steve Evans himself does not have a card in that particular set. The T206 set is famous for including cards of many other notable players from that era, like Honus Wagner and Ty Cobb, among others, but not Steve Evans.

Who is the player pictured on the T206 Evans card?

The T206 card that features the name "Steve Evans" actually pictures a player named Mike "Doc" Powers, a catcher for the Philadelphia Athletics during the early 1900s. This card was mistakenly labeled with the name "Steve Evans" due to an error in the printing process, leading to confusion among collectors. The image on the T206 card does not match the actual player named Steve Evans, hence the misidentification.


But wait there's more...


Who is pictured on the T206 Powers baseball card?
C
The T206 Powers baseball card features Charles "Boss" Schmidt, a former professional baseball catcher who played primarily for the Detroit Tigers in the early 20th century. The card is part of the famous T206 tobacco baseball card set issued between 1909 and 1911.



Who is pictured on the T206 Schmidt baseball card?

The T206 baseball card featuring Charles "Boss" Schmidt actually portrays Charles "Boss" Schmidt himself. Schmidt was a professional baseball catcher who played for the Detroit Tigers during the early 1900s. His image is featured on his own T206 card within the renowned T206 tobacco baseball card set, which was circulated between 1909 and 1911.

I had worked my t206 count up to 507 but just departed with my Evans. I can confirm these sales are legit for anyone thinking of flipping their cards, payment was prompt after my item was sold.

I just hope all the Evans cards don't get hoarded and I can complete my set some day!

No sure why ChatGPT thinks the card actually depicts Mike Powers. Powers hit righty (unlike the player depicted on the Evans card) and last played for Philly in 1909, when he died tragically from an opening day injury.

I think Steve Evans is kindly doing his best to make collectors’ Christmases brighter. I dug one out, listed it with best offer and it was sold/paid for within an hour. Thank you Mr. Evans Claus!

I say cash in while the cash is available!

If I had one, I'd be selling it and using the money for something else that I really wanted. Makes perfect sense, sell an Evans and get a WaJo or Young or Matty or ?

Here's a question for those of you that sold one on eBay:

Have you received your payout from eBay yet?

I want to believe this is real; however, there's definitely something highly unusual about all of this.

I want to believe this is real; however, there's definitely something highly unusual about all of this.
For items that go through the eBay authentication process, eBay collects payment from the buyer and holds the payment until the item passes authentication. All Evans cards sold at these prices will go through authentication.

In my case, I can see that the buyer has paid and my card is en route to PSA for authentication. If it fails auth, the buyer is refunded and the card returned to me. If it passes, the hold on the funds is released an available to me.

TLDR: have not received my funds yet but it is visible that the buyer has paid for the card

if all the high priced sales are going to same buyer, it's well over 50k (probably around 75k) and that's taking best offer discounts into consideration.

Have you received your payout from eBay yet?

Yes. Mine sold for $150 (no authentication needed) in late Oct and I received the payment soon after.

Just had a look on 130point and the sales are insane… never seen sales like it for one specific card in this short amount of time.

I find this incredibly frustrating. One because i don’t have an Evan’s to cash in with, and now there is yet a new card that will likely cost me thousands in order to finish the 520.

This may be the event that ultimately makes me quit this effort. What a racket.

This is very unlikely to last for long or create a long term headache.

I don't think Bartirome or Titus have ever fully recovered. They are overpriced to this day, and their sales were a gradual auction run-up situation. I don't remember board members listing a sun-faded Titus worth $150 for $19,000 on eBay and haggling it down for $10,500 on the same day.

there's no way this keeps up, the entire Evans market collapses when this buyer gets enough. I guess he might have just won the lottery and will keep this up forever, but at this rate he'll need hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy up enough to corner the market.

For example, no way I'm selling my crummy, low-grade Evans right now. I will always view the card differently. It's a special card now, like an m116 Wagner, or a Lou Gehrig postcard rookie.

I tend to agree with this. Here's mine, for which I paid $41 at Collect Auctions earlier this year. I have a hard time thinking I'd ever sell this back for anything close to $41 again. But markets can change quickly...
