Jeff, I am with you on the D304. I love that card, and don't see it cartoonish in the way I see the E102.
Jeff, after seeing your beautiful Brunners Cobb, I think I now understand the reason for my earlier comments: I don't have one.

I think there are only two known of this beauty. Using the actual photos for early turn of the Century cards are great eye candy.

I can't help myself, but I wish I had the willpower to stay away from threads like this for the very reason you mention, Leon.
With no Cobb's, Ruth's or Gehrig's in my collection, and being in awe of the cards I see in these threads makes me want to do the same thing!
