auction block, and sports fans in Manhattan scored a peek
at it Friday.

The extremely rare 1909 Honus Wagner — which experts
have called the “Holy Grail” of sports memorabilia (above) 
is expected to fetch up to $5 million in an online auction
ending Oct. 1, according to Ken Goldin, founder of Goldin

known, iconic symbol in the industry. Wagner was the
greatest shortstop of all time.” The card was put on
display at the Yankees-themed restaurant NYY Steak
