Default Show-n-tell us of your T206 Run(s)

The Carl Lundgren (Cubs) cards is a favorite of mine for several reasons....and, especially since it was the first T206 subject of which
I completed its back Run (only 3 cards needed).




.


I added my color-error (missing blue ink) of Lundgren to accent this display.

So you have "completed" your T206 set. But, The Monster has you hooked. Just like those classic lyrics in the song Hotel California.........
"you can check out any time you like....but, you can never leave"

So, you need a new T206 challenge. Try collecting your favorite T206 guy with all his backs. The most awesome T206 sub-set by a Net54
member is Jamie Blundell's red Cobb run. And, there are quite a number of other impressive Runs by Net54er's.

If you want a real challenge, select a subject in the 350/460 Series. These guys were printed with as many as 24 different backs.

Here is my near-complete Chase sub-set.

A - B - C - C - D connection



Since 1981 (when I initially start my blue Chase run), I have never seen this T206 with a DRUM back. There are 1000's of T206 collectors in the hobby.
It is estimated that there are approx. 2,000,000 - T206's in circulation, so what is the probability that at least one blue Chase DRUM exists ? ?







I acquired this very rare LENOX Chase from a Net54 member in a trade. I've had it for many years. Recently, I traded it to Chris Browne for a red HINDU card.

And, my Chase "obsession" expands into the subsequent White-Bordered cards (T213-2, T213-3, T214, T215).

What a coincidence: just yesterday Jaime asked me to post my Merkle run, and now Ted wants a back run post. So here goes...
The Lenox Brown is one of one;
The Coupon Type-3 Factory 8 overprint is not in the pop reports, so perhaps one of one;
The Pirate is one of two. The other is owned by Richard Masson in his Pirate master set;
The first one that I got was the Uzit on eBay in 2004. The bid was $1,000, so I bid the minimum increase, $1,025. I couldn't believe no one topped my bid. It was a raw card at the time. It was also my first truly rare back.
I bought the Piedmont on eBay when I decided to do a back run. It was a poor card from a poor scan. When it arrived I found that it was a Factory 42.
I am missing only a T215 Red Cross, so if anyone knows of one......

Tremendous run, Sean. Merkle Throwing is one of my favorite T206 poses; he makes playing first base look easy.

Hey Sean

Great Merkle display......thanks for posting them.

I counted 14 different T206 backs for your Merkle run. This appears to me to be Merkle's complete T206 run......Yes or No ?

YES. We've talked about the EPDG being possible, but I don't believe that Merkle was produced with this back.

I am missing the Red Cross Merkle, but that's a Type-2, so not a T206.

Hey Sean

This 460-only series Merkle is an EPDG No-Print. My research indicates that EPDG and PIEDMONT 460, Factory #42 are Mutually-Exclusive backs in the 460-only series cards.
And, you have the PIEDMONT 460, Factory #42 Merkle.

So I never have to worry about an EPDG showing up.
