Honus Wagner: A Biography
by Dennis DeValeria and Jeanne Burke DeValeria
Reviewed by Gene Carney A sad fact of life for fans of baseball literature is that publishers tend to play it safe, go for guaranteed sales. So, we have whole libraries of books about Ruth and Mantle, about the Boys of Summer and Willie Mays, about Yankees and Dodgers and Giants (oh, my!) and to a lesser degree, about Red Sox. On the bright side, baseball biographies have grown up a lot since I lunched on them as a kid-was Creamer's Babe the trend-setter? Al Simmons must rate a book, along with Jimmie Foxx, Warren Spahnand dozens of others. I mean well-researched, well-written books. Like Honus Wagner, by Dennis DeValeria and Jeanne Burke DeValeria. Wagner was a Cal Ripken-type hero in the land of baseball for the first two decades of this century, when that land covered quite an area and heroes were made up largely of paper and ink. Ruth and later heroes ruled the silver screen and radio waves, while Mays and still-later icons were televised. Honus never was just a local Pittsburgh star. Now, at last he has a biography that is first-rate. And now Cobb has a movie? So maybe there is still a chance that Honus will make that silver screen Discovering Honus Wagner among baseball's earliest superstars was also a revelation of sorts: Greatness can come from anywhere. You don't need to be a New York Yankee, or even a New Yorker.

63. Honus Wagner Baseball Card Giveaway: Maine Antique Digest 04/96
by Dorothy S. Gelatt. Sotheby s sold the pristine 1910 honus Wagnerbaseball card for an eyepopping $451,000 auction record in 1991.
Honus Wagner Raffle Gross: $22.5 Million at Wal-Mart
by Dorothy S. Gelatt Sotheby's sold the pristine 1910 Honus Wagner baseball card for an eye-popping $451,000 auction record in 1991. Wal-Mart discount stores just made the upscale art auctioneers look like pikers by offering the card as top bait in a sports card clearance raffle that grossed more than $22.5 million! Treat Entertainment, hot-shot sports card distributors, put the Wal-Mart deal together in what was probably the world series winner of overstock fire sales. At last count, they reported raffle promotion total sales of "forty-five to fifty million" card packs. "Better make that forty-five million," said their spokesman, John Appuhn, who first reported only 30 million packs right after the raffle ended. There were 500,000 entrants! TV star Larry King picked the winning raffle entry live on his "Larry King Weekend" TV show on February 24—Honus Wagner's historic 122nd birthday. Surrounded by Baseball Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, "baseball legend" Joe Garagiola, and San Francisco Giants star Barry Bonds, Larry King plunged his hand into Honus Wagner's old road trunk, owned by Treat, filled with 4000 eligible preliminary winner names, and pulled out a plum. "And the winner is..." Ms. Patricia Gibbs, 41, a postal employee of Hollywood, Florida. All the preliminary winners were notified to stay home by their phones that night for the winning call. Ms. Gibbs did that. But there was a glitch. Larry King reached somebody else's answering machine, and Ms. Gibbs did not actually get the call during the show. In fact, she did not actually see the show because she does not get CNN.

64. Previously Unknown Honus Wagner Card To Be Sold: Maine Antique Digest, Feb. 1998
A previously unknown honus wagner baseball card advertising 5¢ and 10¢ cigarsturned up in a scrapbook in Louisville, Kentucky, and will be sold by Hunt
Unknown Honus Wagner Card Discovered
by Lita Solis-Cohen "It is certainly the rarest Honus Wagner tobacco card in existence," said David Hunt, who runs the sports memorabilia auctions. It was consigned by the woman who found it loose in her father's scrapbook. According to Hunt's catalog, Wagner began coal mining in his hometown of Mansfield, Pennsylvania, at the age of 12 and began his baseball career on the Mansfield team in the Ohio State League at the age of 21. In 1889 he joined the Paterson, New Jersey, team of the Atlantic League before being sold to the National League Louisville Colonels in 1897 for $800. Wagner played for the Colonels until 1900 when he and 14 other players were transferred to the Pittsburgh Pirates. That dates the card somewhere between 1897 and 1899. Henry Reccius, a Louisville, Kentucky, cigar maker, ran a Union shop. There is a Union-made symbol on the top left-hand corner of the card and a long Union endorsement on the back of the card with the words: "Even the Devil can't stand the smell of a cooking scab on the griddle of Hell." The legend is that Wagner did not like tobacco and insisted his image not be used for its sale; that's why Honus Wagner cards are so rare. That may not be true. Wagner was known to use tobacco, but his main objection was he didn't want kids to have tobacco, so he did not want his image used on cards that would get into the hands of children.

Player Profile: Honus Wagner
Name: John Peter "Honus" Wagner
(The Flying Dutchman) shortstop Lived: Career span: Hall of Fame? yes (1936) Primary teams: Pittsburgh Pirates (1900-1917) Best Year: 1908: 201 hits, .354 avg., 53 SB, 109 RBI Rank on Greatest Players list Player notes : Honus Wagner is rightfully regarded as the greatest shortstop to ever play the game. Almost a half a century since his death, he remains as one of the icons of the game, a standard by which greatness is still measured. He won eight batting championships (including six of seven fron 1903 through 1909), and led the league in doubles seven times, in RBI five times, in stolen bases five times, and in extra base hits seven times. He was also an outstanding shortstop, said to throw the ball to first base so hard that the pebbles he had scooped up would arrive at the bag along with the ball. Branch Rickey called him the greatest player he had ever seen. Wagner was also a man of principle, who was said to have turned down a significant increase in salary to jump to the American League because he like Pittsburgh. He also asked that his picture be removed from his 1909 baseball card because the card was distributed by a tobacco company. Some of the cards had already been distributed, however, and the card is now one of the most expensive and famous of the old baseball cards.

... Periodicals Periodicals T206 HONUS WAGNER PROOF STRIP TO BE AUCTIONED Written by David Rudd ( Cycleback - September 20, 2000) Steve Verkman Cards and Memorabilia , of Carle Place N.Y., has announced that the famed 1909 T206 Proof Strip, including the Honus Wagner baseball card, will be a part of its auction of 'Baseball Antiquities' ending October 11. The six-card proof strip, or pre-final run test print, also includes cards of Hall of Fame members Mordecai 'Three Fingers' Brown and Cy Young. The T206 Honus Wagner is widely regarded as the crown jewel of baseball cards. Only about fifty are known to exist, with the highest grade example recently selling for $1.27 million in July. While other single card T206 Proofs exist, this is the only known strip, and certainly the only one with the Wagner. Each card on the strip has the border cross hatches used to align printing and blank back typical of proofs. The strip shows considerable wear, including a heavy crease along the right side of Wagner's face and body. The cards have retained the bright color that has made the set a hobby favorite. Cards are, from left to right, Brown, Wagner, Frank Bowerman, Young and Johnny Kling. The proof was most probably Wagner's personal copy. Wagner's former Pittsburgh home was sold in the 1970s, and the new owners discovered the strip along with a 1938 coaches uniform and important documents. Steve Verkman touts the strip as "Wagner's own Wagner".

All America Teams
Count appearances on Deadball Era all-star teams . Several summary counts supplement this introduction and annual listing. Baseball Magazine began publication as a monthly in May 1908. Soon after the baseball season ended, the November issue (vol. 2, no. 1) included a one-page article, "All-Star League Teams" (1908) . That seminal article listed "All-American League", "All-National League", and "All America" teams under the line, "Following are the All-Star team selections of The Baseball Magazine Every year 1908 to 1950, BBMag selected the two league teams and one "All America" team. The selections were unattributed 1908-10, then attributed to F.C. Lane, 1911-37, and Dan Daniels, 1938-50. Here the annual AL and NL teams are listed explicitly and the annual "All America" team is identified by bold face in the league listings. For 1913 only, there is a second team from each league. Every team comprises one player each at positions 1B, 2B, SS, and 3B, and three Outfielders; that is, seven players for seven regular positions. The 1908-1911 teams name one man at outfield positions LF, CF, and RF, but the man did not generally play the position. Beginning in 1912, every team simply names three outfielders. Here, the men who regularly played centerfield are marked "[cf]". The "battery" of pitchers and catchers is variable: 1908 2 catchers, 5 pitchers 1909 3 catchers, 5 pitchers 1910 2 catchers, 5 pitchers (3 pitchers on each league team) 1911 4 catchers, 6 pitchers (4-5 pitchers on the league teams) 1912 2 catchers, 3 pitchers 1913 1 catcher, 2 pitchers (same on the league second teams) 1914 2 catchers, 3 pitchers 1915-19 1 catcher, 2 pitchers

Friday, August 23, 2002 Honus Wagner card vanishes Man suspects baseball card was purloined from him

By Jim Hannah,
The Cincinnati Enquirer NEWPORT James Kidney bought these two antique baseball cards, along with a Honus Wagner card, at a garage sale in Fort Thomas.

(Patrick Reddy photo)
Mr. Kidney said the Wagner card disappeared from his desk inside his 10th Street law office five to eight months ago. He didn't bother to report the apparent theft until Aug. 16, when he learned a Cincinnati resident was trying to sell a familiar-looking card on the Internet auction site eBay. The Honus Wagner card was one of four Mr. Kidney bought at the garage sale. He still has two tobacco cards and one Cracker Jack card he bought there. Mr. Orlando questioned why someone trying to sell the rarest of all baseball cards would not get the proper authentication by a reputable company. EBay halted the high-stakes auction July 31 until the card's authenticity could be confirmed.

The world's most expensive baseball card will be on display at PSA's booth
It's considered the Holy Grail of baseball card collecting. But, just how many 1909-11 T206 Honus Wagner baseball cards exist? Conservative estimates place the number around 50 while more generous guesses edge toward 75 to 100. MastroNet, Inc., the premier Sports and Americana auction house and PSA (Professional Sports Authenticator), the leading authenticator for trading cards and sports memorabilia, are teaming up to assemble the largest display of 1909-11 T206 Honus Wagner baseball cards ever to be exhibited. The collection will include the world's most expensive baseball card the $1.265 million PSA NM-MT 8 T206 Honus Wagner, which will be on display at PSA's booth. In addition to the top Wagner card, MastroNet has secured a number of other higher-grade examples of the card for the once in a lifetime exhibit. MastroNet is encouraging all Wagner owners to participate in this historic display. Doug Allen is optimistic that such an event will also result in previously unknown T206 Wagners surfacing. Also, with a nod to the April 3 event of National Trading Card Day, Allen hopes the event will help fuel new interest into card collecting as a hobby and activity families can enjoy together.

Thursday, January 09, 2003
"Honus" By J. D'Abruzzo Thoughts of retirement entered the Hall of Famer's mind during the 1903 World Series because of a disappointing championship performance that led to catcalls from the crowd. John Peter Wagner, however, stuck around the game long enough to become a Pittsburgh legend. Growing up in Carnegie, Pa., "Honus" Wagner was the only ballplayer Hans Lobert looked up to as an idol while trying to break his way into the big leagues in the late 1890s. Lobert, who played semipro ball in Pittsburgh, even had the opportunity to be a teammate of his hero in 1903 after Pittsburgh owner Barney Dreyfuss brought the 21-year-old to Exposition Park for a tryout in September. Lobert, who later joined the Pirates and sat the bench during the World Series against the Boston Pilgrims, entered the Pittsburgh clubhouse on his first day and got the shock of a lifetime. "I was looking for Fred Clarke, the manager at the time, but at the same time I was looking at guys like Ginger Beaumont, Tommy Leach and Honus Wagner out of the corner of my eye," Lobert once said. "All of the sudden Wagner, of all people, yelled out, 'Hey, kid, come over here and use my locker!' "I told him I was looking for Mr. Clarke, but Honus wouldn't let me wait around and let me use his locker to dress. That was something."
