T225: issued in 2 non-overlapping series of 25 cards. Series 101 has grayish full bleed borders; series 102 has white borders. There are no known short prints or scarcities, although series 102 is much tougher to find than series 101. Series 101 is very condition-sensitive. Midgrade PSA/SGC cards (4-5-6) will fetch from $40-$100 depending on grade and player. Keys to series 101 are Jeffries, Attell, Jeannette, Ketchel. Series 102 has virtually no good fighters. Keys are O'Brien, Ty Cobb (not the ballplayer).

T220 White Borders: 50 cards, no short prints. Tolstoi backs are uncommon but not rare. Keys are Sullivan, Corbett, Dempsey, Fitzsimmons, Jeffries v. Sharkey, Sullivan v. Kilrain. You can put a set together readily in vg condition for about $500-$750. Higher grade costs more, obviously, as do the keys. A Tolstoi set would be some work.

T220 Silver Borders: 26 cards known (more may be discovered; I have confirmation on only 26). Mecca backs. Mike Donovan of Today has 1 known example. Keys are Corbett (Jas. J., not Young Corbett), Dempsey. Expect to pay substantially more for these cards in decent shape than for their white bordered bretheren. Nice examples have been selling for three figures.

thanks Adam very helpful and insightful info.

has anyone here completed either of these 2 sets ( T220 & T225 )? im close to having complete sets of both but i have not added to them in a long time. should i pursue completion ? any chance these may grow in popularity in the coming years. i really dig the artwork on the T220 set and i think the T225 set is a little more classy.

thanks again fellas for the responses. glad the Postwar section went up.

It all depends on condition. If you don't care, T220 white is readily completed and T225 is a bit of work but doable.

yes to the T220 set, but I agree with the above the T225 set could be tough and I never was able to complete

I've done the 220 and 225-1 (and 218) all twice (and sold them), at lower/mid grade, and would agree with Adam's pricing. All can be monitored on ebay regurally.

Sitting on 15 of 25 T225-2, they are much harder than series 1.

"Freddy" Corbett not shown. Great set, and as mentioned, other than the Famous HOF Phila. Jack O'Brien, they are a bunch of no-bodies (but that is part of what is great about them).
