This is the Honus Wagner rookie card! The rarest of all vintage Honus Wagner cards with only two copies in the PSA population report and no copies graded by SGC. Issued in Louisville Kentucky during the late 1890s when the Louisville Colonels were members of the National League this card advertises for Honus Wagner 10 Cent Cigar made by Henry Reccius(Louisville cigar manufacturer established 1870 or earlier). This copy, deemed authentic by PSA presents as VG due to a horizontal crease. It is printed on medium card stock and is a reddish brown color with black printing. With this being only the second example to be graded you can be sure that opportunities to own one will be extremely limited.
