One of the most valuable rookie cards in the history of sports cards belongs to none other than baseball’s Honus Wagner. As of Tuesday, June 9, a virtual rookie card is available through the new Honus Wagner MLB The Show 20 Player Program. While he’s not at his primary position, he’s definitely a card a lot of players will want for their Diamond Dynasty squads. Here we’ll take a look at the card and how to unlock his new Diamond Legends item.
