Default T206 EPDG- - - how rare in your collection?

Posted By: barry arnold

Since reading Scot Reader's work, I have found myself even more preoccupied with
the backs of my 206's. Tonight while thumbing through nearly 400 different 206's, I noted scores of piedmonts,sweet caporals; several
polar bears;15 or so Old Mill's (no browns);10 or so sovereign's; 10 or so
Tolstoi's; a handful of american beauty's 350,460; and a handful or so of
Cycle's 350 and 460; a handful of Hindu browns; one carolina brights; and
just 2 EPDG's.
Having just a couple of EPDG's surprised me a bit.
Any other folks have this experience?!
I made a conscious effort to get the Hindu's,Beauty's, and Brights.
Not so for the rest.

many thanks for the help

barry

Always have heard the back is not one of the rare ones but I certainly agree with you Barry. They don't get much respect pricewise either though. I only have 1!

As you know, Perfessor, I'm rather conscious of backs myself and was similarly surprised to find I have just three EPDG's out of my current 179 T206's. The breakdown:

American Beauty - 5
Cycle 350 - 6
Cycle 460 - 1
EPDG - 3
Hindu - 3
Old Mill - 11
Polar Bear - 10
Piedmont 150 - 25
Piedmont 350 - 54
Piedmont 350-460 - 8
Sweet Caporal 150 - 20
Sweet Caporal 350 - 17
Sweet Caporal 350-460 - 8
Sovereign 150 - 5
Sovereign 350 - 1
Tolstoi - 2

MANY thanks.
i wonder what this means about EPDG's.
steve, i notice that you have quite a few of some of the
rarer backs----is it because you made a conscious effort to
get these, and not so much the EPDG's.

even so, i wonder if we need to reevaluate the rarity of
EPDG.
by the way, buddy, Willetts brought an sgc 50---found
it on the sgc website today!!!

best

barry

p.s. you're right Matthew! it is the Lindaman i got from you ages ago!

Whew. Glad things worked out on the Willetts.

Anyway, I think EPDG backs are as difficult as our numbers suggest. However, I guess I haven't been as willing to pay a premium for them as I have for, say, AB or Hindu backs. I might have to change that thinking.

Not a one out of a collection of 100 or so that includes Tolstoi, Cycle, and Hindu.

Out of a collection of about 30, which includes 1 brown Hindu, 2 Cycles, a Tolstoi, 3-4 Polar Bears, and a pile of Sweet Caps and Piedmonts, I have one EPDG -- of Vive Lindaman.

For the sake of this "survey" this might skew your numbers a bit, though, as I was actually seeking out the back to get an example for my collection.

Regards,

Richard.

Barry

I will follow up Richard's post with another tough T206 in the 150-only Series
and mine is Carl Lundgren (Cubs) with an EPDG back. It is a rare combination
to find the 10, or so, cards in this set that only exist in the 150 Series with
backs other than the usual Piedmont, Sweet Caporal, or Sovereign ones.

And, I surveyed my 600+ T206's and found only one other EPDG back and it is
the Rucker (portrait). So, here is a sample more consistent with yours.

The remaining tougher backs (BroadLeaf, Carolina Brights, Drum, Hindu, Lenox,
and Uzit) in my current collection outnumber the EPDG. But, that's because
I make an extra effort to acquire them: whereas, I do not regarding the EPDG.

Barry, thanx for bringing up this subject, as I always thought the EPDG backs
do not get their due respect in the T206 set.

T-Rex Ted
