Default Post Your 3 Favorites

Picking a top 3 is tough, and mine could change by the day. But for today, here are my favorite 3 (any player, not just those posted below)

Post your top 3 favorites; not your most valuable or rarest, but the three you like the best, and quick story as to why for each.

1. T206 Plank -- Well, because its a Plank and because its one of the prettiest examples I have ever seen.

2. E92 Crofts Cocoa Cobb -- I love this pose and the combo is super tough. I am thrilled to own it.

3. T216 Mino Wagner -- I love Wagner, I love this pose/card, and this is a super tough front/back combo.

Lets see some of your favorites.

1. I like my Plank too, t206 is my favorite set.

2. My favorite Cobb.

3. I don't have a Wagner that I would put here yet, but I will go with my favorite Clemente even if it isn't prewar.

Awesome, but to clarify your top 3 do not have to be Plank, Cobb, and Wagner. They can be any player(s).

The sheet because I think it's pretty cool
The Wagner because it's as close as I'll get to the T206
The K-Zoo team because, well, Ol' Hoss and friends on one card is damn awesome for an early Boston collector like me

In no particular order:

1. 1910 PC796 Cobb/Wagner SGC 1.5!!! - I like it because the biggest stars in the game were shaking hands before the 1909 WS. Plus the hobby friendship I made while purchasing it at The National 2019 from Don Hontz. Don was selling Cobb postcards at the show like it was a flash sale.

2. 1913 M101-3 Sporting News Ty Cobb PSA 1. I was wanting to purchase this card at The National 2019 as well but I bought PC796 cobb/Wagner instead. I purchased a PC796 Honus Wagner psa 2 in Heritage a few weeks prior so it made sense. I love the image on the card. The hint of color on his face makes this card pop.

3. 1907 Dietsche Ty Cobb Batting Rookie SGC 3. It was my first Postcard purchase and it was a must have for my collection.

I'll play for the lower grade lovers on the board and the budget collectors.

In no particular order:

1. Frank Baker and Eddie Collins (These count as one cause they go together and I don't know what they are)
2. T215 Red Cross Purtell (from the Jersey City collection)
3. E93 Mathewson (love this card)

My three favorites. Bush was one of my first T206 rare backs and has always been my favorite. I never thought I'd own an e107 HOFer, and I'm in awe every time I look at them.

My favorites have more to do with memories than value

The first old card I ever owned:



I must've been about 9 when I got it.

The first T206 I ever owned:



Bought it from Mike Berkus at one of his Anaheim shows in the late 1970s, for twelve bucks. I remember because that was a big piece of my card budget for the day but it was a card I'd wanted for a while.

I met Hank Aaron:

A small handful of T206 Hall of Famers with rare backs. Pretty much the only thing I have come to think of it

I have too many favorites to pick just 3. But, being as I absolutely love (1) having 1-of-1 cards (per the pop reports), and (2) having real-photo, b & w cards, I'll go with these 3 WaJos, which meet these criteria:

Impossible to pick just 3... So will focus on aesthetics rather than monetary value.

I guess I'll go with these, which combine the subjects of HOFers accompanied by gorgeous colors and background scenes. Especially the Waddell T206. One of the prettiest cards ever, IMO.

Cannot decide which of these two GOODWIN CHAMPIONS (my favorite set) are my favorite....so here are both of them.







I gotta love this one, since it finally completed my SWEET CAPORAL, Factory #30 set (468 cards). Besides, I didn't have to
re-finance my house and barn to acquire it


.







And, last but not least....you gotta love a card of Mickey which you paid only 1-cent for in the Fall of 1952.

Lol. Nice Ted. A 1cent 52 Topps mantle would be my favorite card also.
