ST. LOUIS — Someone in New Jersey is the proud new owner of a rare Honus Wagner baseball card.
The buyer paid $1.2 million for the 1909 card in an online auction that ended early Friday.
Bill Goodwin, a Missouri collectibles dealer who ran the auction, said he's thrilled with the final price.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the buyer went to bed after winning the 14-bid auction shortly after 2 a.m. Friday. Goodwin said the buyer hasn't decided if he wants to be identified.
The card was owned by a Houston businessman who didn't want to be identified.
Only about 200 of the cards were made, and only about 60 are believed to still exist.
Wagner, a shortstop, was in the first class ever elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
