While there is not a definitive Babe Ruth rookie card, the 1921 Frederick Foto Babe Ruth card has three (3) known examples. While the 1909 T206 Honus Wagner is thought to have 50-75 examples.
Brian Seigel bought a Honus Wagner card in 2000 for $1,265,000 and sold it in February, 2007, for $2,350,000.AnswerActually, Honus Wagner is not the most valuable baseball card because a few weeks ago ( right now it's December 19 2007 ) a family found an authentic Babe Ruth rookie card, and I am not talking about the ones on eBay that ARE fake. The family sold the Babe Ruth rookie card for $3,000,000.
The famous "Gretzky T206 Honus Wagner" baseball card sold for $2.8 million in September of 2007. This was the highest price paid for the card. Wayne Gretzky and Bruce McNall bought the T206 Honus Wagner card in 1991 for $451,000., and sold it for $500,000. in 1995. At the time there were fewer known examples of the card. The "Gretzky T206 Honus Wagner baseball card" most likely has a higher value because of it's past owner, and I would not include the value of this card with the rest of the T206 Honus Wagner cards on the market. Other T206 Honus Wagner cards have recently sold in the $200,000. -$400,000. price range. A 1914 Babe Ruth rookie baseball card, just the tenth card of its kind to be discovered sold at auction on May 5, 2008 for the price of $517,000. The card was produced by the Baltimore Sun Newspaper. In an auction held in 2007 the Babe Ruth Baltimore News card sold for $200,000. I would put the famous "Gretzky T206 Honus Wagner" baseball card alone at the top as the most valuable, and the 1914 Babe Ruth rookie baseball card second with the "other" T206 Honus Wagner cards a close third.
The T206 Honus Wagner card is probably the rarest and most valuable, but there are 1/1 inserts, which means only one has ever been made. But they don't come close to the value of the Honus Wagner. the Babe Ruth Rookie card is the rarest.
I think that almost everyone would say Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth, no doubt.
Babe Ruth Mickey Mantle Honus Wagner
They were both very good
I think as much as a T-206 Honus Wagner Baseball card.
