Default Most underrated pre-war set?

My vote goes to the T202. I mean, what's not to like?? Lots of stars, 2+ players per card, nice portraits and center image on front, nicely designed backs with "story" on middle panel, etc.

Or maybe it's more appreciated than I realize?

What's your pick? (I know there are a million issues but pick one you think is underappreciated)

I know this sort of thread is not new, but I my opinion this is an "evergreen" sort of topic that can be dredged up now and again.

T205. I would also say t3 Turkey Red. They used to be a lot more popular than they are today, but seem to be largely forgotten.

Almost all pre war sets are underrated when you have the Monster to deal with.
t206 is the most popular set by such leaps and bounds , but it seems pedestrian to some of us.

My favorite is t205 but its pretty widely collected and revered too.

T202, E90-1 and OBAK are certainly contenders for the title of this thread.
