Wagner card sells for $2.1 million
WEST BERLIN, N.J. (AP) — A 1909 Honus Wagner baseball card sold for more than $2.1 million at auction.
The T206 card, originally released by the American Tobacco Co., went for $2,105,770.50 in an online sale, Goldin Auctions said Saturday.
While the company said the price was a record for a baseball card sold at auction, a similar Wagner card in mint condition was purchased for $2.8 million in a private sale in 2007.
Chinese boxer wins debut match
UNDATED (AP) — Zou Shiming won a unanimous decision in his professional boxing debut Saturday, dominating all four rounds against Mexico’s Eleazar Valenzuela at Macau.
Zou’s high-profile flyweight debut was the centerpiece of a show at the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macau casino. The two-time Olympic gold medalist didn’t disappoint the crowd, which waved flags and cheered for the most successful amateur boxer in Chinese history.
Earlier in the show, Juan Francisco Estrada beat longtime flyweight champion Brian Viloria by split decision to claim the popular former U.S. Olympian’s WBA and WBO belts. Rocky Martinez also retained his WBO super featherweight title with a split decision over Diego Magdaleno.
