It’s unclear why the T206 Eddie Plank card has been largely lost from history but the lack of cards available have contributed to the recent $700,000 auction price the card fetched in 2012.

Plank was anti-tobacco which means he might have pulled a Wagner and demanded the card be removed from the American Tobacco Company’s marketing. Either way, this Hall of Famer pitchers card with its PSA 7 rating is a top collector’s item. Only about 75 of his cards are known to still exist.
