Chris Nerat interviewed Walter Rantanen, who works for Integrated Paper Services, and he cleared up some of the statements he made regarding the T206 Honus Wagner card that was the subject on ESPN’s "Outside the Lines."The owners of the card say it’s real, and the only reason they can’t get it verified or sold is because they are Afican-American. Experts say it’s because the card isn’t legit.
Could this card have been produced in the early 1900s? According to Rantanen, yes. Could it be from the 70s?? According to Rantanen, yes. That’s a bit different than the ESPN show claimed he stated.
