That's exactly what I did. One of the benefits of collecting "T" cards is they don't seem to lose their value too much (compared to some post-war cards). So you can usually resell at your cost ... and sometimes a little above. I think I bought the T205 Matty with mostly $ I made off selling a bunch of T205 commons. Anyway ... I love the T205 set. One of the first sets with bio's on the back ... I think. Maybe I'll win MLB's Beat The Streak one day and that will allow me to go for the complete T205 and T206 sets :-)

[quote=Big Six;1634486]So I've got a few sets going at the same time - Diamond Stars, 51' Bowman, 54' Topps and 56' Topps - but going to focus my efforts on T205 for the time far, here's my progress to date:

- 41/215
- 7 HofF (Brown, Jennings, Marquard, Mathewson, Speaker, Wallace w/ Cap & Wheat)

- all PSA 3 or SGC 40 except Chase - Both Ears (PSA 4) & Wheat (SGC 50)

Totally Awesome !
Great Thread

How is everyone doing lately with their T205 set?

Here is a recent upgrade from eBay:

I also re-scanned my set over the weekend which can be viewed here.

Those cards look so good raw in pages like that.
WTB/WTTF: (larger want/trade list here)
T205s: rare backs and freaks, especially miscut with identifiable parts of both cards visible
Christy Mathewson: T332 Helmar Stamp

See the Want List for "Successful net54 transactions" list.

It is a sickness I have I swear. I just bought a Grant, Wilhelm suffe ed, and Graham Black Signature Cubs var.

I have no clue why I bought them. I thought I was cured when I sold them all!!!!
