I think Eddie Collins, considering how great a ballplayer he was, is way undervalued and due for a bump.

Anyway by no means do I mean the set is undervalued what I actually was trying to get accross was so many cards I felt were undervalued for example, how the heck can you buy a card over a hundred years old that's a Hall of Famer for a couple hundred dollars? Believe me I'm very thankful I've been able to buy such beautiful cards at such a good price for so many years. I don't know how many cobbs I sat on for so many years like so many other people and they just never went up to much in value and then recently it's like they've woken up like a sleeping giant and they've more than doubled in price in just one year. Not all of them but your big players you know who I'm talking about. No Digs at anybody it was just my thoughts when I said undervalued. I mean when people are paying $1, 000 and more for current players when you could have bought a Cobb a year ago for the thousand bucks or so it's just seemed the cobbs were way undervalued at the time along with so many others. The dead ball era is my favorite and I am a history nut so a t206 fan I will always be.

Seems like some of the comments on this thread neglect half of the pricing equation. The argument from some Net54 Illuminati, in a nutshell, seems to go like this: “T206s are far more plentiful than other prewar sets, yet command higher prices. So they are overvalued.”

But viewing pricing solely as function of supply/scarcity is myopic. There’s this pesky thing called demand that also contributes to market prices. T206 is an iconic set (like ‘33 Goudey and ‘52 Topps) that attracts attention from thousands of collectors and remains part of the zeitgeist after more than a century. No other pre-Goudey set I can think of can make that claim (maybe '14-'15 Cracker Jack comes the closest).

So, yes, T206s may well be undervalued relative to other prewar sets. While past is not necessarily prologue, T206s have out(price)performed most if not all other prewar sets in the last 40 years. I think that trend is more likely to continue than not.

I say this as someone who a little more than a decade ago became enamored with scarce prewar cards and lost more than a few dollars pursuing those.

BTW I voted for Cy Young Portrait. WaJo was a better pitcher but Cy has the award named after him and thus remains more in the umbra of the zeitgeist.

Thereís something about the look of the Cy Young portrait that I love, so thatís my vote. My second choice would be the red Cobb
