Default T206 Set

I meant to respond to this around the holidays when I first noticed it. I have 520 (set minus big 4) completed, about 15 dupes left (sold and/or traded many), so 535 in total I guess. Took 2-3 years to complete - didn't get serious about it until I counted up that I had half.

* All are graded - mid-grade - most all are grade 4 (50) thru 6 (80), a few 3's
* Most all are SGC, PSA or BVG, a couple GAI's
* Mostly common backs, some tougher SOV 460's, Tolstoi, Cycle, AB, etc.
* No elite back Uzit, Broad Leaf, C-Brights, Drum, etc
* First Net54 purchase: Walter Johnson Port in a SGC60
* Last card: Demmitt STL (SGC40)
* Favorites: Elberfeld Wash Port w/OM back (PSA4 - looks much nicer)
* Dahlen Brooklyn in SGC60, Cobb Green (PSA3), any SOV 460 back
* Not Favorites: Bliss (looks like he just stole something), Spike Shannon

Default Monster Numbers updated in Post #101

A couple of reminders for:

Marckus99 : Zero is not a valid Monster Number. See Posts #27, 37, 38 & 39.

EdWolf1963 : By definition you have two sets with Monster Numbers 520 and 15

Everyone else : Goodwin's current auction has a Monster Number of 920, I believe, if you want to go for broke (or go broke)

Once I realized that I would be at the bottom of the monster list for at least a year or so, I quit following this thread and missed the above bit of wit from you. Nice.

Here's something to make you and Barry scratch your collective heads. For those who have only one T206: "We're number one. All others are number two or lower."

Scott, I would respond that you are number one of many and refer you to Post #95, where the supreme Monster number is best defined. Barry is still scratching.

Sold the Plank, which definitely hurts in the rankings. So my current standing is:

Default scott f and frank b

While you may choose to be number one, I prefer to choose to be first.
Number one has many numbers higher, while first by its very definitional nature holds the highest.
Now back to sloths and orangutans. The latter are much more expert at
scratching collective heads than Frank B or BA.
all the best,
barry

I'm at 518. Saving up for o'hara and the last Cobb. Only 170 are Piedmont or Sweet Cap. No points for diversity, tho...

I was at 920 points when I quit the race. Did not see a Doyle happening, it is easily the toughest card in the set, variation or not.

I like the '1000' magic number, but would still like to see the other two members of the 'big six' get some credit. Maybe shave a little off Wagner and give it to Demmitt and O'Hara - won't affect the Wagner-owners, as they would have all three.

Default A Proposal - The Forrest Modification

Runscott has stated in a recent post

"I like the '1000' magic number, but would still like to see the other two members of the 'big six' get some credit. Maybe shave a little off Wagner and give it to Demmitt and O'Hara - won't affect the Wagner-owners, as they would have all three."

Scott, i will offer the following proposal named the Forrest Modification

Currently / Proposed

Wagner 240 / Wagner 200
Plank 80 / Plank 80
Doyle 80 / Doyle 80
Magie 80 / Magie 80
Demmitt SL 1 / Demmitt SL 21
O'Hara SL 1 / O'Hara SL 21

I am asking for feedback from those with posted Monster Numbers.

If you have reported 1 or more Monster Numbers, you get 1 vote.
(Rawn doesn't get 10 votes.)

Arguably this will lead to other suggestions, such as giving more weight to the Doyle card, giving additional credit for rare backs, autographs or grades.
i make this proposal with trepidation. I don't want to head down a slippery slope of endless requests for change. The success of this thread is its simplicity and my vote is "Leave It Alone" and I'm sure Scott's vote will be "Change It". Views of this thread are over 5000 and it is on the 7th page of over 1000 pages of total threads, based on total views. I say if it's not broken, don't fix it.

For the sake of this vote, if you suggest further modifications, your vote will be disqualified. Majority rules. Voting will end midnight Sunday CDT.

If this passes and I hope it does not, all Monster Numbers of 520 will become 560. Monster numbers less than 518 will remain unchanged unless a Demmitt or O'Hara variation is reported. Monster Numbers of 680 will become 720. If there is a doubt about these variations, notify me or the thread for clarification.

If this fails and I hope it does, no modification will be made. The polls are now open. Simply respond "Leave It Alone" or "Change It". Disinterest in this poll will be interpreted as favoring the "Leave It Alone" group.

The decision of the JUDGE will be final.

I spy 5 Demmitt StL and 5 O'Hara StL on ebay at the moment - not much of a challenge. Leave It Alone.

Best Regards,
Craig

Perhaps you could slap with a fish anyone who choses "Change It"

Default A Proposal - The Forrest Modification

This is a duplicate post with the title corrected. Initially I couldn't figure out how to edit the title. Now i can't figure out how to delete one of these posts.
This post is identical now to the previous one.

I think the demmitt and o hara command more point.... but i like the fact of the 520 card set is 520 point....

1 thing i don t like is the Magie have the same ranking than doyle or plank.. in my book, magie is not in the same categorie....

...and this is about T206's.

Yes, but to those of us who are going for 521, we are aiming for a monster number of 600, so the number '520' isn't all that magical.

Now Scott, I think you're being too modest. I'm sure some of the people who know you from the old days also hate your guts. Just kidding.

My answer is leave it alone and i explane my vote.

I agree with the fact to goes up in point demmitt and ohara but you take the 40pt at the wrong place. For me wagner must keep his 240 pt. Magie can be reduce at 40 and give 40 pt to demmitt and ohara.

So

Leave it alone

haha! Yes, you are right. Holding a grudge for six years must really burn a hole in one's gut, and an even bigger hole when they realize that I forgot we ever disliked one another. When I realize that someone really and truly is burning up over an internet grudge that involves me, I honestly try to halt it as quickly as possible. If they insist, then screw them.

No vote from me, Frank, my post was strickly a joke about my collection and quite possibly myself.

I think this is a better proposal and would likely favor this one if suggested. I vote to kill the current proposal and my vote has nothing to do with my long held grudge of Scott.

A new feature is also being added with the current Monster number List being added to Post #1 at the being of this thread. You will no longer have to search recent posts to find the list. Thank you Bruce for this suggestion.

Thanks to all the Net 54 Members, who have contributed by sale or trade to my recent push to complete the Monster. I have reached 509 and may pick up another card or three, but realize fully that a Monster Number of 1000 is a fantasy for essentially all of us, hence the appropriate moniker "Monster".

As the sole creator of this thread, I accept full responsibility for both the simplicity of the MN and realize the imperfections inherent in any system that attempts to quantify anyone's monster. There does not seem to be a mandate for change or modification. It will remain as is.

I will continue to update results here on Post #144 as they are reported.
From time to time I will move the current list to the end of the thread as I am doing now, but only when it is on the first page. I will not bump the thread myself as I'm sure there are some who are tired of seeing it. But it will pop up again I trust.

One final observation that some of you have mentioned is the frustration of increasing your monster number only to see your ranking decrease, because of the addition of new sets above you. I share this frustration with you and would recommend The Myth of Sisyphus by Camus, an essay on the philosophy of the absurd. Sisyphus is a figure of Greek mythology who was condemned to repeat forever the same meaningless task of pushing a boulder up a mountain, only to see it roll down again. The essay concludes, "The struggle itself...is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy."

I'm happy and do not regret my efforts to slay the Monster. Keep collecting my friends.
