Default T206 difficulty per player

I would like to get thoughts on the T206 rartity factor for a particular player, mega stars only, common backs only.

Is the Walter Johnson hands at chest more rare than his portrait?

I do know the Matty white cap is way tougher than the dark cap, but is it more rare than the portrait?

Cy Young - is the bare hands most rare, or the Portrait (or glove)?

Cobb - I know green portrait is most rare, red portrait least, but what is more difficult, bat on, or bat off?

thanks

Default relative rarity thanks

It seems the Matty white cap is quite the undervalued card.

The Cobb bat off isn't nearly as rare as the bat on - bat on would seem to be a good value play.

And interesting, the Young bare hand and portraits are just about the same rarity.

And just as thought, Matty dark and Cobb red are plentiful - and OVERvalued?

Thanks.
