The 100 Best Finds in a 30-Dollar Lot: #51

2011 Topps Vintage Reproductions #CMGR-11 Honus Wagner 1910 Tip-Top Bread

This particular insert set from this year's Topps product are interesting because they are showcasing some of the more off-the-beaten-path vintage cards that none of us will ever own. While Wagner's T-206 has been done to death, this is one that's new to me. Here's a look at the back of an original.

While I mistakenly told my wife that neither of us would ever have to work again if this was an original (thinking it was the T-206), I was able to find an auction that took place last year where a PSA 5 example sold for $29,625. Not too shabby, but not enough to pay off my mortgage.
