$2.8 Million Honus Wagner Card Was Doctored: Auction house owner Bill Mastro has admitted that he altered the 1909 T206 Honus Wagner cigarette card that sold for $2.8 million in 2007. Mastro, on trial for defrauding collectors and shill bidding on auctions, admitted that he "cut the sides ... despite prior statements to the contrary," according to a court filing.
