The School Sisters of Notre Dame in Baltimore are about to receive a little divine love from the Holy Grail of Baseball Cards. A newly discovered T206 Honus Wagner card (1909-1911), left to the convent by the brother of a member of the order when he passed away, will be auctioned off on Nov. 4 in Dallas as part of Heritage Auctions’ Signature Sports Memorabilia event.
The card is estimated to bring $100,000+.
“The proceeds from the sale of this card will go to benefit the work of the School Sisters of Notre Dame all over the world, in about 35 countries,” said Sister Virginia Muller, Treasurer for the Baltimore convent. “Wherever the need is, we will share it.”
