A Mike Trout baseball card passed the famous Honus Wagner card for the highest priced trading card in history.

Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout continued to break records this week. One of his rare autographed baseball cards surpassed the famed Honus Wagner card as the highest-priced trading card in history.

The card, a Beckett graded 9 one-of-one autographed 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft autographed Superfractor went for $3.9 million at auction. Mike Trout ‘s card was flipped by Dave Oancea, who initially bought the it for $400k in 2018. 

Honus Wagner’s 1911 card sold for $3.12 million at auction in 2016, and continues to climb in price, as does Mike Trout ‘s card. 

Mike Trout’s 2011 rookie card is the hottest item in the baseball card industry. This massive sale goes to show the level of fame and greatness of Trout as an athlete, but shows the amount of money to be made in the sport card industry.
