Just in...Honus is gone.

This listing (#250015375445) has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number.

Now what does that mean for the owners and more importantly, the HBO people?

This is definately a good thing for the hobby, but leaves me asking one question...

What's HBO going to do now? Continue with the episode about this card?

Good for ebay. But the Connelly's are still hanging in there, "not purporting to authenticate this card" but still looking for the consignment fee on $300K+. So I think HBO still has a story, but I'm sure they would much rather have been able to refer to ebay since so many viewers could get there and find it via search. Much more cumbersome to have to provide URL's or help people figure out how to get to it.

I, most certainly among others, reported the auction to Ebay for violation of the authenicity disclaimer policy. This may or may not have contributed to its removal as I also signalled auction#110017694073, where the seller states "I cannot assure someone it is not a reprint..." For whatever reason, Ebay has declined to de-list that one.

Could it be that Ebay doesn't bother because the bogus Wagner game is so old now that no one gets sucked in anymore?

Paris Hilton bought the card as a present for her chauffeur and auction was voluntarily closed! You heard it from me first.

If you don't get a bid in early, all the good sales happen off-ebay.

I'm a little confused. When I go to Connelly's website (www.bobconnelly.com), he still lists the card. When I click on the link to eBay live, I see the card is still listed there. It seems to me then that the card has not been removed, or am I doing something wrong?

Try it again. I just went to their site and hit every link I could and it's not there anymore. You possibly could have had the link stuck in your browser somehow. Also, if you go to ebay and put the # in you can see it's gone. Good for ebay for doing this. They only lost the listing fee which is $5-$10...as no way would this sale have ever fully happened. I guess Connelly's estimate of 850k is still sticking though. If it's worth 850k then I guess my fake '28 Ruth Candy Company cards should be worth at least several thousand. Maybe I'll send them all of my fake pieces of crap to auction....nah, it's better to keep them for comparisons sake....
