Over the past two years I have really fallen in love with the E92-family sets. I know I am in the minority on this board (maybe not in this thread though?), but I actually don't care for the lithography in the T206 set, and I'm not big on portraits. Instead, I like the bold colors, sunsets, and action poses of the caramels from this era. The Dooin, Magee, Schaefer, Mathewson, and others are some of my all-time favorite cards. Incidentally, I'm not as big a fan of E90-1 even though there is significant overlap, because of all the portraits.

Plus, this family is a set-collector's dream. The sets are small enough to be manageable, and range from the very doable (Dockman), to the impossible (red Croft's), and all stops in-between. Back runs abound. The E106 set, with its glossy fronts and wild colors, is actually my favorite of the bunch, although quality control was perhaps at its lowest.

Not pictured: a few T216s, D303s, and Tangos (though I consider them to be honorary caramels).

Wow

Not entirely sure how these online non ebay auctions work, but I believe I won a few e95s at Heritage Spring last night. After I complete the set I think I may find a card with a clean back and display it backwards to show off the checklist and then the 25 players in order.

Delighted to report I snagged 3 great e-cards at last night's Heritage auction, which had been on my want list so long the ink on the paper had faded, and while they certainly weren't cheap, they weren't outrageous by today's realized prices; a E93 Waddell, a E95 Wagner and, for me, the best, a E92 Nadja Davis PSA 6. The Davis was especially important because I am trying to hit for the circuit, holding the Dockman PSA 7, the Croft's Blue PSA 6 and Red SGC 5, leaving only the Crofts Black, if it exists, and the Cocoa, which I have never seen but have no reason to doubt its' existence. Nice to feel some satisfaction instead of the usual frustration at my recent Heritage experience, where I am batting about .120.

John, congrats on the Wags and Davis. I was watching the E95 Wagner but ultimately held off, which was good bc its good to a net54er get. I have done several t206 back runs, and like you, I love the diversity on the back. I am strongly considering trying back runs with both e92 Wagner front poses; including e90-1, e101, e102, e105, I guess e106.... am I missing any? Is that an e backrun, all the front poses regardless of the e-number? Or is it just all the e92s?

Congrats on your Wagner!
Were there any e95s from this auction that looked to sell a bit low or high?
There is a Mathewson ending in a few hours but I think I may hold off. My first bid wasn't enough to take the lead.

John, I seriously have my doubts on whether the black croft's candy Davis exists. I think finding a 4th red croft Davis might be more likely. The Cocoa Davis definitely exists (http://brockelmanauctions.com/LotDet...ventoryid=5203).

Rhotchkiss, a run of both Wagner poses would be extremely impressive and one hell of a challenge. Don't forget to include the T216 (all Kottons, Mino, & VE?), D303 (General Baking, Mothers Bread), and possibly Tango Eggs? In the meantime, could I please get the Nadjas for my set first?

The Wagner run would be awesome...throwing pose imo...and it will be tough to complete.

I totally forgot about the t216s (damn tobacco variations). Yes, it would be an awesome and expensive undertaking..... its an enticing idea
