WATCHUNG, N.J. -- A Honus Wagner T206 baseball card has been auctioned for $1.32 million in online bidding.

Robert Edward Auctions said Monday that 42 bids were placed by Saturday's deadline for the card, which was rated as a three condition on a scale from one to 10, with 10 the best. The winning bid was for $1.2 million, plus a 20 percent commission.

The names of the buyer and seller were not announced. The company says the same card had sold for $791,000 at auction in 2008.

New Jersey-based Robert Edward Auctions says the record price for a Wagner T206 American Tobacco Co. card is $2.8 million. That one was rated as an eight condition.

The card is from 1909 to 1911.
