I had Honus Wagner in the Palm of my Hand

The National Sports Collectors Convention in Cleveland had the 1909 T206 Honus Wagner card on display.

If you were VIP, you could get your picture taken with it or the '51 Bowman Mickey Mantle card for free. The Mantle '51 Bowman card is graded a PSA10 and is said to be worth $1MM. The Honus Wagner, 1909 T206 card recently sold for $925,000 and was on display.

I wasn't a VIP, but I was talking to a group of VIPs in the Panini booth line (that's as close as I get to VIP anything). As we were talking, one of them wasn't going to use his VIP "picture pass" and offered it to me! Awesome!

On Sunday, I stopped by the Memory Lane table where they snapped this Polaroid.
