Default Lots of new T206s listed on eBay

54 from one seller to be exact. Extremely long explanation of his grading principals. And not one mention (or scan) of the back type on any of the t206s. Really?

I can see how, from your collecting point of view, this can be annoying. For what its worth, I'm not a big fan of sellers not providing back scans either. Even if the card has been graded.

Default It jsut seems the seller could get more money

T206s I know. A Piedmont factory 42 would be worth more than a factory 25. And a Hindu would be worth more than the Piedmont 42. Imagine if it was a Broadleaf 460. The back of the card could make a world of difference in what the seller could expect to get for the card. If they even mentioned it.

Now, t205s, or other tobacco cards, I don't know. But isn't there like a card with stats vs. the same card without stats (Hoblitzel?) And isn't a Drum backed t205 worth more than a Piedmont?

I'm just saying if you don't know what you're selling, put an evenings worth of effort into your listing. Find out what you have, and let everyone know.

When I sold all my other cards to concentrate on the stamped ones, I sold a Hiene Wagner on eBay. Three times. Same card. Properly described, and scanned. But three people bought it, then said they didn't want it when they found out it wasn't THE Wagner card they had heard so much about. Finally just gave it to James B. down in Texas just to get rid of it. He had bought most of my collection already, and Hiene missed his old album-mates.

Ed...did you tell those people that if it were "THE" Wagner card that they had heard so much about, that they wouldn't be paying $30-$50 for it?? Multiply their payment by 5,000 and they might just START to be getting in the ballpark!
