(AP) – The world’s most expensive baseball card has hit the
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
Auctions.

Goldin said “In the world of sports, it is the single most well-
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
in Midtown on Friday.

A MONSTER CARD COLLECTION!

The 50-card issue was distributed in one-cent and five-cent packs with
gum. The photos of chilling monsters came from 19 different episodes
of the ABC televisions series The Outer Limits (1963-1965), including
18 episodes from the first season. Like the TV series, the 1964 Topps
Outer Limits cards are more popular now than they were upon the initial
release.
