A team of The History Bluff archaeologists have recently unearthed a treasure chest of T206 Honus Wagner baseball cards once buried by the infamous Captain Kidd on the coast of Virginia.
The T206 has always considered to be the “Holy Grail” of baseball cards, a name that the chalice Christ drank from during the Last Supper has since become known as.
Long-supposed to be one of the rarest cards in history, historians are baffled by the existence of these additional 2,341 Honus Wagner baseball cards. While still valuable, the card will probably never again fetch the $2.8 million it did in 2007 when sold to a California collector.
Our team made the discovery after following through on a hunch of Senior Archeologist Crafton Winkler’s. This theory came from documents which showed Kidd acquired a treasure chest of baseball cards while trading away to fellow-pirate and collector Henry Morgan only two cards – Roberto Alomar and Carlton Fisk.
