Congratulations.

My youngest brother got me interested in collecting T206s. At card shows I was always concerned about condition, but Chris preferred beaters. He claimed they had more history and character. Unfortunately, he passed away shortly after he began collecting, and I continue to struggle to finish a mid-grade set.

Your achievement encourages me to keep going and finish the quest.

Thank you,

Joe

Well done - the conditions are wonderful. That Elberfeld looks familiar! I wouldn't change a thing!

I wonder what you will do now. I've gotten over 510 twice, and to 521 once. But always purged to make a run at other interests. Keep us posted on the next big thing.

Jon,

CONGRATS! Not an easy row to hoe!

You Cobb reminds me of Kermit singing "It's Not Easy Being Green".

Jon, congratulations on reaching 520! Great to see pictures of cards from your well loved set. I probably looked at them for about the same amount of time I would spend looking at high-grade cards.

What's next...further downgrading, upgrading, etc.?

Congratulations, Jon! Those cards are wonderful survivors. I'm sure we'd all look pretty similar when we get to be about 108 years old.

Your die cut Johnson portrait is a Net54 classic, too. I remember seeing that card posted on here well over 10 years ago.
