A rare Honus Wagner baseball card is expected to sell for between $1 and 1.5 million at auction.
The card is one of 60 Honus Wagner cards made in 1909 that are known to exist. Most of the existing cards are in poor condition, but this one is ranked as the sixth best quality amongst the surviving cards, making it a rare opportunity for collectors.
Wagner is one of baseball all-time great hitters with a lifetime batting average of .328. He lead the league in hitting eight times during his 21-year career.
The auction goes through April 19, 2012.
