'The Monster' roars as PSA Current #2 finest T206 set smashes multiple world records in Heritage $2.75 million auction
Likewise besting all previous results was a $144,000 price for the rare Ty Cobb Tobacco tin, the only non-cardboard relic in the sale.

DALLAS, TX.- The world’s largest collectibles auctioneer dropped the hammer on the second edition of The David Hall T206 Collection Sept. 19, rewriting the record books for the hobby’s most celebrated tobacco issue and adding $2.75 million to Heritage’s industry-leading 2019 tally.

The extraordinary set, assembled by the founder of Collector’s Universe, was ranked No. 2 on the PSA Current Finest registry before the auction scattered its components to Heritage bidders.

Leading the highlights of the evening were a $540,000 result for the fabled T206 Honus Wagner, easily assuming the record for that card in a PSA Authentic grade. Likewise besting all previous results was a $144,000 price for the rare Ty Cobb Tobacco tin, the only non-cardboard relic in the sale.

“We’re so happy for David,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Heritage Sports. “He’s one of the hobby’s most important pioneers, and the ultra-hot market for PSA-graded cards today is a validation of his life’s work. It’s a golden era for high-grade and low-population trading cards because of the structure he innovated.”

When reached for comment, Mr. Hall offered this advice to potential consignors: “Anybody who sells their T206 cards anywhere else is leaving money on the table!”

The T206 O’Hara St. Louis Nat’l rarity matched the $96,000 world record set by Heritage last year at PSA NM 7 level, and the PSA NM-MT 8 Polar Bear Ty Cobb Red Portrait surged to a record $87,000. Another rare-backed beauty, the Uzit Hooks Wiltse Portrait with Cap, commanded a record for the card in any grade at $43,200.
