Or maybe they had been stuck in a trading range for years and are just starting to break out? I for one never collected pre war up until a couple of years ago... I collected Mickey, Roberto, Willie, etc... I didn't even collect Goudey... but I always knew the history of Cobb, WaJo, Ruth, Wagner, etc...but it's only been recently that I really had the money to buy them and really got into the history of the different cards and players....started making friends with other collectors in prewar...and maybe there are more people like me that are moving these higher and could have the means to do so for years... Maybe we are getting into the prewar HOF bull market?

I'm collecting the prewar HOFs (not just t206, but candy cards, postcards, etc) for the fun of it and not to make money, so if they don't keep moving higher that's ok...but of course there is that feeling of wanting to do well with what I buy!

I agree Michael I think % wise Speaker might have went up
more than any of them in the past 6 months- year.

I think they will eventually flatten out. Card prices across all sets and years have really gone up because the economy is doing so well.

Plus, why the demand may be high for big name t206 hall of famers right now, so is the supply. Just check the pop reports. There’s a lot out there. Nows a great time to sell, not buy IMO.

That being said, the cards maybe worth picking up now are the ones that are well centered with good registration and color. The supply on those cards are few and far between. But you’ll have to pay a premium.

Definitely true.. Good time to sell for the people who bought t206 cobb, wajo.. about 4 or 5 years ago.

Imo (probably not worth much here) everyone is missing the boat. I still say extra nice commons that are graded EX-MT (6) or higher will win overall. Not total dollar amount but more commons will increase near 100% than high dollar cards.
I am already seeing some that sold for around $160 now sell for $400. Please don't ask for specifics, just my opinion.

Funny how you say now is the time to sell and not buy when you have a Want to Buy post in the t206 B/S/T section

Touché. Although I find Young and Mathewson portrait are priced about right give or take. But for Cobbs and WaJo fugettaboutit. Prices for a 2 or 1.5 are going for what great eye appeal 3s and 4s were going for just 2 years ago. There’s just too many out there, especially Red Portraits, to justify the price. But then again who knows.

I also believe Speaker is a steal still. HOF RC with only one card in the set.

And while I’m being called out, I’m looking for Keeler, Tinker, Joss portraits...and no I don’t think those players will explode in value. Just love the design

Lol! I just thought it was funny to see your two posts

You have valid points indeed, the Cobb reds especially....there are a lot out there so if you're buying one I wouldn't necessarily want a beater if I'm buying as an investment.... but as you said who knows! I just picked up a decent PSA 3 Speaker myself and agree that it's under priced, it may be especially timely to grab a nice Speaker with a rare back.

Speaker was an iconic player, but not a big fan of the looks of his t206 card. Nice card to have though as its the only pose of him in the set, which was mentioned.

Seems Mr, Plank has taken off nicely, already in the last few years. Whether he continues that ascent, or not, will be interesting to see. The other picks are fair choices though most have also seen nice increases, overall. I might go with a Cy Young Portrait. I have always enjoyed that card and might own another in the future.

Here are mine:

1. Plank
2. Johnson portrait
3. Lajoie portrait
4. Mathewson portrait
5. Tinker portrait

Bonus pick: Magee Portrait (as always)
