Posted By: <b>Marc S.</b><p>Personally -- I would have loved to see an E97 Briggs Candy set with about 10 - 20x as many players as it has.<BR><BR>1915 Cracker Jack Ruth is a good one.<BR><BR>But how about a T206 Joe Jackson? I'm not even a huge fan of his -- but that card would have been HUGE...sporting the Philadelphia uniform, etc.

Posted By: <b>Andy Baran</b><p>Some of the best cards ever made were produced in the 1920's. However, they were produced in Cuba, not the US. Sets such as Billiken, Tomas Guiterrez, Aguilitas, and Nacionales are among the most attractive sets ever. Not to mention that they are loaded with American Negro Leaguers that are not available in US sets. I have many of them on my website:<BR><BR><a href="http://www.geocities.com/mostly_rookies/index.html" target=_new>http://www.geocities.com/mostly_rookies/index.html</a><BR>(You may need to copy/paste the link to get it to work)<BR><BR>There is also a great web page maintained by Ryan Christoff:<BR><a href="http://www.geocities.com/brass_halo/CubanBaseball.html" target=_new>http://www.geocities.com/brass_halo/CubanBaseball.html</a><BR>

Posted By: <b>John</b><p>i dont remember where i read it but wasnt Joe Jackson in the southern league at the time of the T206 set being made and someone had found proofs of southern league players that were not in the T206 set....i could be remembering this wrong,but that would mean that at least theres a chance of a T206 Jackson proof card existing now or at one time....can anyone confirm this?
