Posted By: <b>Bryan Long</b><p>I just purchased my first Oxford card and was curious about the set. What HOFers in the set are the toughest to find? I think I got a steal on this card, but I am not sure since I have never really looked at them before now. Curious to see scans of other cards from the group.<br /><a href="http://s16.photobucket.com/albums/b45/trib01/?action=view&current=1921_e253_Oxford_Speaker_Front.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b45/trib01/1921_e253_Oxford_Speaker_Front.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><br><br>.

Posted By: <b>Bryan Long</b><p>Is that the true look of that card? Is that the only card that looks that way or did something else happen to it?<br><br>.

Posted By: <b>Matt</b><p>Bryan - it's a nice set - another one of the under-appreciated 1920s issues. It is chock full of HOFers (14 of the 20 cards). I bid on that card, and I think the ending price was about right. It's not as tough as the V100s or the V89s, but a difficult issue nonetheless.

Posted By: <b>Sean</b><p>Bryan,<br />That was a great deal and it looks great for the grade. I sold mine last year in the same grade (but a little more worn) for $210.<br /><br />Nice pick up!<br /><br />Sean

Posted By: <b>Bryan Long</b><p>I am a sucker for portraits - so maybe that is why I like the cards so much. For some reason I always seem to buy the portrait cards over any others <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br><br>.

Posted By: <b>dan mckee</b><p>I think Sisler is the toughest card in the set. A beater sold at Hunt's for over $1000.00. I also need that Rousch Brian! Let me know if it is available. Thanks Dan.

Posted By: <b>Bryan Long</b><p>The cards are great looking in my opinion. The more I collect the more I am drawn to those black and white picture cards. m101-4 and m101-5 cards are great as well. Thank you everyone for sharing them. I saved all the photos for my virtual collection. I hope everyone that posted doesn't mind.<br><br>.
