I didn't notice this thread started yet, so here goes. I woke up about an hour ago to FedEx banging on the door to drop this one off. Not a bad way to start the month off as I've been looking for one for a while. Thanks to Sam from Net54 and his friend for this one.

Number 284 in the rebuilt collection. Large enough it looks like there is just a bit of an extra factory number at the top. Thanks to Travis Bidner for pointing this one out on eBay.

With any luck, number 285 in the collection will be about the last post in the month of February....

I was thrilled to win the t207...nice that no one seems to be chasing them now. I love the LC cards. Speaking of passing through famous hands, OBC trading buddy Jimi Thayer sent an interesting M101-2...neat stamp I thought.

Congrats! And a little bit of a WST ghost on the back to boot. I always get a thrill every time you add another of Howe's cards. Thanks for continuing to post all of them.

John, it is a catchers mitt he's wearing. I've seen only one other photo of Cobb wearing one. I'm sure there are more, but it's a rare sight and pretty cool they used this photo for the Pinkerton.

Well February looks like a tough month to compete in so far, but here are my humble additions :) The Speaker and Chase are two of my favorite cards in the set, really beautiful colors. And I know the Campanella was post-war, but it just came in this week and so I threw it on the scanner with the others. Love that card too, what a great image.

Completed an OJ player run for Henry Gruber. The cards do not have impressive images, but took awhile to obtain (I'll take what I can get). I collect cards of all the 1887 Detroit Wolverines; Henry posting a 4-3 record for the Champs. Henry was not issued an OJ card until joining Cleveland in 1889.

the set contains quite a few such beauties - this one my favorite. Nice P/up!

and apparently we share an appreciation of the Frey N28. While I sold my set (a hint too pedestrian) I kept a sweet Frey along with an Oakley and Buffalo Bill in my treasured cards type card subset. Forgetting about the all too easy jokes - unlike most normally staged cards - the inexplicable balls in the air thing gets me - and despite the unbordered white background approach I find the card to be aesthetically pleasing.

Just bought this interesting card last night. It pictures Julia St. Clair, who through research I have identified as a Bloomer Girl. I found her on a roster in 1902, so I'd guess this was produced some time around then. I also found one other image through Google search as well as a discussion on another example on this website. That makes 3 and it makes me confident this was a commercially issued card and not just a homemade memento:

"Gribbin" came in the mail today -- another example of a great exchange with a board member -- thank you! :)

I put Gribbin in quotes because his actual name (and anything about him) eludes me. Baseball reference spells his name Francis Gribbens: http://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.cgi?id=gribbe001fra
Lew Lipset spelled it Gribbon on his encyclopedia. What other references should I check?

I'm still looking for a few more Red Sun cards over on the BST page.

Not that the card is rare, or anything like that, but since it is a HoFer, and even then a higher-tiered HoFer, I don't often get a chance to try and get these back with the others.

But sometimes, thanks to people like John, Joe, Scott and in this case, the guys at Clairmont Sports Cards, I've been able to work out payment plans where they hold the card while I slowly pay it off, then send it on.

This arrived in the mail today. Again, thanks to Dave, Bake and Lee at Clairmont Sports Cards, and to everyone else who has helped reunite all these cards.

After not posting any photos in a while, I was pretty pleased with this month so I feel like it today. ;)

Grabbed a few good looking low grade examples to add to the man cave -

My newest acquisition !! I have been hunting this card down for several years now and finally found one with the eye appeal I like. I don't believe this card is any more rare than others from the set but it must be a very special card for collectors as you hardly ever see nice ones come to the market.

Hi Steven,

A few years back a bunch of these 1915 Cracker Jacks were auctioned off on eBay. I had never seen any printing errors on cracker jacks before until this group appeared on eBay. Recently, an eBay dealer posted 3-4 cracker jacks with this registration shift issue. Surprisingly they didn't get much attention this time and I grabbed the Wally Schang for my catcher collection.

Cool cards, the Schang too.

I wonder if there is a case to get them reholdered without the MC. They aren't really MC, it just looks that way due to the misregistration, something which has nothing to do with the cut. You can even see a slightly lighter red area on the right where the border is underneath the single layer of red.

That is complete BS PSA put a qualifier on those.

The backs are perfectly centered on these cards, so should not be called MC. Just a shift on the front printing. I also have two others.

I just got these Meyers with SC 350-460, factory 25 backs. So, when checking the population reports, I can only find one of these graded (since PSA didn't identify backs for a while, and SGC doesn't identify factory numbers, I know this is skewed). Is this really that scarce of a card? Especially when I found two on the same day. I'm just curious.

Luke
02-19-2016, 04:21 PM
Factory 25 is more scarce than 42 or 30, but Meyers is probably not scarce with any of those backs. I care about the different SC factories and I enjoy keeping track of them, but it seems like 99% of t206 collectors don't care.

I put a run of Meyers backs together about 5 or 6 years ago and the fac. 25 was the toughest of the more common backs to find.

It has been at least two years since I've been able to cross off another card on the Tommy Bridges master checklist. This is one of two cards I haven't even seen for sale since I returned to the hobby a decade ago. Won it with a lone bid of $20. My nuclear bid was more than 10x that amount. Sometimes it is great to collect an obscure player.

Thanks Eric. I've found the blue background E98s to be far and away the toughest color variation with the hordes of reds and greens dropping in to the market with the Black Swamp Find. Oranges can be difficult too, but not as bad as the blues. For some strange reason the blues are also the hardest to find in really nice condition. I have no idea why....

Thank you and sorry for the delay in getting back with you. I do not know when the photo was taken or if it is Bris Lord on the far left. I guess he borrowed one of the jackets from the other team because from the waist down the guy on the far left has the same uniform as Collins.

Ed, I am so glad there was another bidder between you and me, I was so worried I drove your price up. I noticed this card when there was around 5 minutes left, and didn't think I could notify you in enough time. So I tried to buy it for you, but got outbid by.....you and another guy. At least now I know what your e-bay looks like if I see another, I won't bid if you already have. Glad to see it come home to you.
