If you're gonna go with a point system, why not use the PSA weight system? Having a Hall of Famer, or Southern Leaguer should easily count for more than having a common. Obviously the Wagner, Plank and Magie should count for a bit more than 10 points though..

The concept could get very complicated with Hall of Famers, Southern Leaguers, different backs and different grades, etc, etc, etc.

I wanted to keep it simple enough to get quick responses not requiring a calculator. I considered the PSA weighting system, but found it a bit to complicated for a quick answer and weighting Wagner a 10 just isn't fair.

My other goal was to have a maximum score of 1000, which has not yet been reported. The thread seems to be getting a good response and your input is appreciated.

Merry Christmas to all.

To keep it simple, everything should get a '1'. To go one additional level, you could have the three obvious tiers (O'Hara and Demmitt St. Louis are tier 3), and still keeping it simple, you could add a fourth tier of items such as Elberfeld/Washington, Kleinow/Boston, SL'ers with Old Mill backs, etc.

The above would be simple. Adding back multipliers would make it difficult for some board members to do the math.

In any event, your thread is fun, but if you really want to tabulate results, you need to make it more realistic.

Given that this card is already stuck with an 'AUTH-Altered' designation, wouldn't it be worth getting such a restoration company to re-paint the erased background area?

If it were my card, I think I would.

346 for me. Got one card (the Lundgren) nearly 20 years ago, but only started collecting the set 18 months ago. Kinda need to slow down the pace a bit this year...

Happy holidays,

My best and favorite.................. Picking the "worst" was a tad harder...

I am down to about 60 and hope to be complete less the Wagner and Doyle by the end of 2013 (for the second time)

I prefer a card with an erasure rather than to be ever "touched up" by anyone.....beaters don't bother me, but specific altercations do.....
