Reno Man Has Honus Wagner Card, But Is It Real?

If it’s real, it could be worth millions of dollars.

And a Reno man currently toiling away in the warehouse of a food bank would have enough money to buy a new house and pay some bills.

The most coveted baseball card of all-time is the T206 Honus Wagner. Jason Mars paid $177 for the card on Ebay, and the only thing standing between him and riches is the need to prove the card’s authenticity.

So what makes the Honus Wagner card so valuable, how many of them are still in circulation, and how can experts determine if the baseball card is authentic?
