Default Show-n-tell us of your favorite T206's in your collection

Thanks guys for posting your favorite T206's.

Another one of my favorite T206's is Frank Delehanty. Here are 4 cards from my Delehanty run representing the "A-B-C-D" connection.
The significance of the A-B-C-D connection (350 series) is read in thread.... http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=90139


.




Furthermore,
American Lithographic continued this A-B-C-D connection into the T205 set. Thirty-two T205 subjects were printed with American Beauty,
Broad Leaf, Cycle, and Drum backs. For more info on this, refer to thread.... http://www.net54baseball.com/showthr...=195845&page=4

Huggins is my favorite of these T205 A-B-C-D sub-sets......

.




Still searching for Huggins with a DRUM back. Any help in finding this card is enormously appreciated, and there will be a reward.

Also, trying for an A-B-C-D Quadruplicate run with the T205 Lobert. Looking for a DRUM card of him.

Default Favorite T206

Ted, since I was a kid, the Young with Glove has been has been a favorite of mine. When I was about 13, I traded something like a Gooden and Clemens rookie for a Bresnahan w/ bat (Sean C almost has a complete back run), and i was a t206 fan. Later, As a kid, I saw this Cy Young was glove at a card show and thought it was amazing. 10 years later I discovered eBay and started assembling another collection- first card I bought was the t206 cy young with glove. I sold that collection and almost 20 years later I started to collect again and this t206 young w glove was one of my first.

Piggy-backing off my last post, bc of my life-long-love of the t206 Young w/glove, I really enjoy the t206 set, and it's likely a reason I am still collecting. Needless to say, I have become a cy young fan along the way...

Default My T206 Cobb stories

I once bought 2 PSA graded Cobbs - bat on & green portrait - both with Hindu backs from a prominent t206 historian... they both turned out to be rebacked and I got my $ back. I worked 5 mins away from Mastro's when they were in Burr Ridge, IL. I'll always be greatful to Pete Calderon (he was at Mastro's at that time) & to Bill for being completely confident they were rebacked & helping me get my $ back. Again, I stress they were both PSA graded (w # grades, not authentic).

20 some years ago REA auctioned a group of 5 Cobb backs that were found in an old book. I bought 2 of them and sold them shortly after for nice profits. Doh!!!

In the early 90's I was at a show in Ft Washington and came across a red port Cobb with a Red Hindu back. I counted out $3k in cash to buy it but before I handed the dealer the $ my dad (who was w me) talked me out of it saying it was a bad buy... the dealer turned around and auctioned it in Mastro's where it sold for $6600. Some 10 years later I came across it again, but in a PSA 4 slab & the dealer wanted $10k for it. So I agreed to do a deal w a friend, selling my d304 Cobb & Rose PC Cobb to raise cash to buy the Red Hindu. A year or 2 later I sold the Red Hindu in REA.

I used to own a t206 Uzit bat off Cobb. Sold it privately, too soon.

I bought a Drum t206 Red port Cobb off eBay 10 or 15 yrs ago that was in a PRO holder... rolling the dice, I paid $2k. I again visited Mastro's and Bill and another guy there (I forgot his name) were confident it was rebacked... I sold it for $250 to a friend telling him it was rebacked.

My most recent t206 Cobb purchase is the "famous" Lenox back Red Portrait from the incredible & insane BST thread here on Net54. It also was auctioned 2 times in Heritage but not meeting the very high reserves. After I received it I showed the guys at REA (at the National) as well as the SGC booth (and they stood by their initial grade of it). It is my favorite card I own and I won't make the mistake of selling it quickly.

I have more stories including a rebacked Carolina Brights Cobb, Am Beauty Cobb bat off, etc.

Be careful if you're buying a rare back t206. All the rebacked Cobbs I bought were over 10 years ago and prices have exploded since then. A 2nd opinion (or even a 3rd) is a wise move.

Hey Ryan, great Young. It's funny how individual tastes can vary. A few years ago someone started a thread about the strangest looking T206 card, and that Young got a few votes. So did the Evers Blue Sky, which is one of my favorites. Go figure...

I think one of the reasons I like the Young w/ glove is how ugly it is - here is likely the best picture of his time, and they have him looking like a fat shlub in an awkward position. I similarly like the M Brown pitching pose, maybe bc he/it is ugly (plus I like you can see the 3 fingers). Evers looks hideous in the blue sky pose. All ugly poses. But man can something ugly look so good sometimes! As an aside, anyone ever think that Joss pitching looks like a young Billy Joel?
