Seems like there are quite a few based on the replies. Were any of these sets "hot" at anytime or have they always been out of favor? A few mentioned the T202s which I am not too excited about but nobody can deny the HOF presence. Based on the sheer size of the cards I would expect high grade examples to be far less common compared to some of the smaller T cards.

Let me approach this by decade for PreWW2 cards, and only considering widely distributed sets.

1910's - M116: A set strictly with portraits, more cards than either T205 or T207, great player selection, many levels of scarcity.

1920's - E121 Series of 80: Also as set for set collectors, amazing amount of variations in the various printing, new discoveries still be unearthed.

1930's - Diamond Stars: No other (baseball) set of cards has such distinctive artwork, and if it had included Ruth + Gehrig, and had new designs for card #'s 97 to 108, maybe it would be more widely appreciated.

1940's - 1941 Play Ball: This decade has a thin selection of sets due to the war, but I have always thought it deserves to be more highly regarded, and has both Joe and Teddy.

I think the portraits/artwork on them is very hit or miss, but the nice ones are beautiful cards IMO.

I think the E94s are really underrated. Quite rare condition sensitive caramel set, 6 different color backs, and have been way underpriced for far too long.

Don't you think all caramels are a bit underrated right now?
