Default T206 Poll, Love em or hate em

Posted By: Dave

I'm wondering with the T206 set being considered "THE" set of all vintage card sets, what everyone's opinions are.....

1.LOVE EM- I can't get enough and have to grab up as many as possible or at least as far as the money take them.

2.LIKE EM- They are a nice set, I collect quite a few here and there, but they don't run through my dreams at night

3.They are OK- I might collect the HOF'er now and then or rare back, but other than that not too interested.

4.HATE EM- This set has never done much for me, and I don't care if there is ever another T206 thread or not.

5.Been there done that- And not interested in this set anymore

My own vote is love em......I've certainly got hooked. The history behind the cards, the massive number of cards in the set, the back variations....all add to the enjoyment for me...Dave

I vote for #3.

Nice cards - but there are so many of them out there that I get a little tired of seeing them.

i'm somewhere between 2 and 3. As a type collector I used to collect the backs and I have a few hof'ers but they don't thrill me. not exotic enough for me I guess!

5. Did it once. That's enough for me. Now liquidating and concentrating on PCL.

3 - I used to collect some of them. And still have some. But no longer. I really don't know why, or understand why. But they just don't do that much for me. I certainly can appreciate them, but (I know this is blasphemy in here) I am tired of them, and quite frankly think they are over rated. I saw one of the Honus Wagners yesterday, in a museum display, and it was neat, and it was beautiful, but it didn't make me want to handstands or anything. Though I must admit, it was fun to see one in person. Sorry, but they kind of bore me.

#3 - pretty much what Mike said.

But I'll never forget the feeling of getting my first one. It was like a right of passage (even though it was a lowly PSA 1 common).

There's too many other beautiful sets out there to jump on that bandwagon. Plus, I like collecting sets I know I at least have a chance of completing before I die.

Dave,
I suspect you might have guessed where I stand.
#1 for sure.

im between #1 & #2. still currently collecting this set and im ok with completing it without some of the harder cards to get and some of the HOF's. It gives me something to shoot for.

Even though I don't collect baseball, I love the T206 set. It has everything going for it: simple classic design, incredible lithography, amazing player selection, affordable and available, but with tough variations and short prints that can make it a life's work. Is there any other set with so many different ways to collect? Back variations, portraits, HOFers, Southern Leagers, you name it. Is there any other set that is such an ambassador for the hobby? Where else can you find a $20 common and a $2 million HOF ultra-rarity in the same set? And where else will the owners of the $20 common and the $2 million HOF ultra-rarity both be so happy and proud of their card?
