Default Honus Wagner on a Budget

The only member of the first HoF class I don't have is Honus Wagner, so why not look into getting one. However, which one(s) should I be targeting?

Are the Barker/Polo Grounds game cards widely accepted by collectors? Is the Colgan's Chips "card" better than the former? Should I look to spend a bit more for an E92 or E95?

Interested to hear y'alls thoughts.

The cheapest Wagner you will get is the Fatima team Pirates card with him on it. I believe its the only other tobacco card of him, but I'm not positive.

With "the" Wagner being a bit out of my price range, here are some of my more affordable (with at least one being arguably as rare) examples :

I typically really like cards from the Tom Barker/National Game sets, but I always have winced when viewing the Wagner from them...just a really awkward looking fielding pose. My affordable choice from the OP's original choices would be the E254 Colgan Chip card, because it has the nice 'T206' photo portrait, and no need to worry about corner wear.

Buy something with his portrait, preferably the same exact pic as his t206 card, or something very similar. The M116 pastels generally can be had at a reasonable price. The 1906 fan craze is also reasonable and has the money shot, but personally, I don't like game cards.
