Ryan--If you like backs and nice images try the M101-4/5 Wagners. I think you'll find the backs challenging and fun.

Of course 'Big Hands' Wagner is also found in the E135 Collins McCarthy set, and the E254 Colgan's Chips (no big hands in this issue).

Also, I don't think you can go wrong (or at least not throwing money away) in wisely picking up the big name Hall of Famers...they only have gotten consistently stronger over the years, and any downturns in value have quickly rebounded.

Totally, but I am focusing on Joe Jackson in these cards (Wags is a bit old at this point). I already have the Famous & Barr and the Gimbels. I find the M101-4/5 and the E121 and similar to be very cool from a backs perspective.

Ryan, I am not a set collector, so my opinion as to what the "T206 of E cards" is may not be worth much. But, if a poll were done, I believe E145 would win over E90-1.

And, I absolutely love the various advertising backs of the M101-4/5, E135, and E121 cards - the scarcer they are, the more interest I have!

I don't think the OP was thinking about Cracker Jacks as an E card, although of course technically they are.

The answer and probably the solution to #2, is that 3-4 of the big Registry guys got out for various reasons and the other few have completed their sets(upgrading sporadically), and there was not enough demand on the higher end cards to keep the prices at prior levels.

So....until a few serious high end Registry set collectors get back into the various E series they will probably remain soft, except for the key HOFers. At this point even the high grade commons and lower tier HOFers are on sale until they see a reemergence in set collectors.

Although they are not everyone’s favorite as they are nearly all studio portraits (which I absolutely love) the most comprehensive E-card set of the 1910 era was the E254 Colgan’S Chips set, especially if one also includes the E270 Tin Tops into the mix as there are roughly 300-400 diff players among those two sets.

Obviously nobody is going to call round cards the size of a silver dollar the E-card version of the T206 set as they aren’t in the shape or form we expect “baseball cards” to be in. That being said it is the most comprehensive issue that has Major Leaguers of the era not called T206 (T210 and Zeenuts are obviously larger but are Minor Leaguers and not all Pinkertons have been accounted for.)

When I see Colgan's I am always seeing cards I don't think I have seen before/often. There are definitely a lot of players relative to most other early sets, except those mentioned. I like E cards for their aesthetics, as they are from simpler times, and have a lot of nostalgia to me. As far as values, I will differ to what others above said. I would vote E90-1 the T206 of E cards therefore there could be a rise in them before others, if some collectors get interested. Also, as a longtime back collector I enjoy the backs on the different varieties too.
