Default What Larry Doyle Is Trying To Tell Us About T206 Relative Scarcity

Picked up my fourth signed T206 Larry Doyle (Throwing) today. As many of you know, Doyle's throwing pose is often called a "toughie" because it can only be found in the 150 Series. True to form, each of these is a 150 -- 3 Sweet Caps and 1 Piedmont.

But if this card is really such a "toughie," why is it seemingly harder to find Doyle's other poses autographed? I've only seen a couple of signed portrait and batting poses. But, it sure seems like I've seen a ton of these throwing poses autographed -- and the four I have in my collection are proof positive.

Doyle Throwing may only be found in Series 150, but Doyle himself had no trouble finding plenty of these on which to sign his name.

Interesting observation. One that could have been missed by most everyone.

Reckon that the throwing image is his 'first' card, and that either ATC or American Litho sent him a bunch, maybe at his request, or maybe without him having to request them... Once he has cards in hand he'd be more likely to sign them.

Perhaps, but these lovelies were almost certainly signed post-1960.

You can call me Grinch, I guess. I am always open to trades, but I tend to value these MUCH higher than most.

Maybe they were a special pack insert, I'm surprised they aren't serial numbered.... I think I've opened too many modern packs

I can't speak to the number of auto'ed Doyles but the PSA pop report suggests that the throwing pose is the most difficult.

I understand that is the conventional thinking based on grading submissions. But my experience collecting signed T206s over the past decade suggests that collectors have had more or at least similar access to the throwing pose over the past century. (I would also add that in putting together my "complete" T206 set a few years ago, I found the throwing pose to be of no great difficulty as well.)
