HONUS WAGNER

Answer: The T206 Honus Wagner baseball card sold for a staggering $3.12 million in 2016, and is considered to be the Holy Grail of baseball cards. It was originally produced by the American Tobacco Company and was included in packs of the company's cigarettes. The Pittsburgh Pirates star barred the company from continuing production of the card — either because he didn't want children to buy cigarettes to acquire his card or because he wanted to get paid more for his likeness. The ATC ended production of the Wagner card and a total of only 50 to 200 cards were ever distributed to the public.

GEICO

Answer: In 1936, Leo and Lillian Goodwin started an insurance company to serve federal government employees. That company was Government Employees Insurance Company, or GEICO. GEICO's original business model was predicated on the assumption that federal employees would constitute a less risky and more financially stable pool of customers compared to the general public. Whether you know it through the gecko or the caveman, GEICO has become one of the most well-branded insurance firms in the United States.

TENNESSEE

Answer: The state quarter of Tennessee features three musical instruments - the fiddle, the trumpet, and the guitar - for the state's three most popular kinds of music. A fiddle stands for the bluegrass music of the mountains of east Tennessee. A guitar stands for the country music of central Tennessee, where Nashville is. A trumpet stands for the blues of west Tennessee and the city of Memphis. People throughout Tennessee entered a contest to design the coin. After Mint artists developed designs from ideas that came from people who live in the state, Governor Don Sundquist chose “Musical Heritage” as the final design for the state’s quarter.
