And why is this baseball card so expensive...?

Honus Wagner baseball card auction price up to $1.6 million...Emily Jane Fox of CNN Money reports

The Honus Wagner T206 card is very rare, 
with only about 50 in existence. Wagner made 
the American Tobacco Company recall it once 
he learned ATC printed the card without 
his permission. He didn't like tobacco and 
he didn't want young people to smoke.
His commitment to smoke free is why 
this card is worth so much...
The card finally sold for 2.1 million.
