Default T206 Piedmont set.....MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Posted By: Ted Zanidakis

SCOT

You asked....."Keep us in the loop about what's next for you and The Monster".

Next, I am considering an "all-Sovereign" set. Check me out on my calculation......

524 - 48 (Southern Lgrs.) - (Big 6) - Lundgren (Cubs) = 469 cards (total needed)

I have approx. 100 different Sovereign backs already, and 40 of them are from the
tougher 460-only Series, and about a dozen HOFers. So, that's a pretty good start.

Wish me Luck, guys.....I am starting a SOVEREIGN-only T206 set. The advantage of collecting
this Tobacco brand is that it can be 100% completed....as none of the "Big Six" are required.

Ted,
Awesome. Keep in mind that Sovereign 460 is only available on 54 cards--the 48 460-onlys + the 6 350/460 superprints. I would love to see you get the complete set of (54) Sovereign 460s!

JOHN, you asked....."Did you keep track of the cost? Have any idea what it took to put that
together?"

I'm just getting back to you on this, as it has been quite complicated to figure out the cost.
Partly, because about 30% of these cards were carried over from my 2nd set. And, those
cards were acquired with "old $$$$", when T206's were much more affordable. For example,
the Green Cobb (that is shown in the above scan) cost me only $250 when I bought it.

The other factor that complicates the cost estimate on this set is that there was a lot of
trading going on in order to acquire many of these cards. And, translating those tranactions
into $$$$ is at best like playing with "funny money".

Anyhow, I cannot give you a $$$$ figure at this point; but, I will keep plugging away at this
and should come up with a realistic cost sometime soon.......actually, I'm curious to find out,
myself.

Thanks for asking.....TED Z

Shown here are the 6 "superprints" that you have identified in the T206 set.
Now, do I understand your premise correctly.....that these 6 cards from the 350/460 series
were printed with more Tobacco brand backs than any of the other cards in the set ?

I have these with varoius backs; however, I have never seen any of them with SOV 460's.
They must be really tough to find.

But, I do have the Chance with a LENOX back....how rare is this card ?

Thanks for confirming this, or providing a clearer defintion.....

Ted,

Yes, these six 350/460 "superprints" are available with a different and larger group of backs than can be found on the 350/460 "regular prints". More particularly, these six subjects can be found with all backs that appear on 350-only subjects as well as all backs that appear on 460-only subjects. I believe these six are indeed possible with Sovereign 460 (in contrast to the other 350/460 subjects, which are NOT possible with Sovereign 460). If you look at the survey data I provided I think at least a couple of these six were confirmed with that back. Hence, my earlier expressed hope that you will tackle the Sovereign 460 subset that includes the 48 460-onlys plus these six--for a total of 54 cards. While challenging, it should not be nearly as daunting as, say, obtaining all of the Piedmont 42s.

Your Chance w/Lenox is rare--but I can't say for sure that it is any more difficult than any other subject with that scarce back.

Scot
