And I could go on.

As we see countless times, scarcity doesnít always translate to value

Having said that, if you like T207, good for you. These are all opinions

Obaks absolutely blow out T206 (and other tobacco sets) in terms of presentation.

Default T207 Weaver

Perfect timing for a T207 thread. A friend I work with who is not a collector just brought in a handful of cards for me to take a look at. He got them from his father in law who had them in a box in the closet. There are a handful of beat up t205 and t206...nothing special. There were also 5 t207s. Not the best condition but definitely 1 - 2. Wajo recruit back, 3 broadleafs (Bauman, Herzog, and O. Wilson) and the star of the group a Buck Weaver anonymous factory 25 VA.

Does anyone know if there is a true pop report of Weaver with the anon 25 VA back?

PS Iíve read every thread here and whatever articles I could find online. Obviously there are not many past sales either.

Congrats and very cool! Some tough customers in those cards, certainly. Hard to know exactly what the population of any card is, even when pop reports are clear ... which they are certainly not for Anon T207s.

In general, Factory 25 are harder to come by than the other Broadleaf-class cards, seemingly by a pretty decent gap. That said, some of the higher grade T207s (B/L class) are found with Anon Fac 25). The Weaver below is an solid mid-grade example.

I don't think I made it all the way before I began to appreciate the portraits as well. I detoured and changed my subset chase to Recruit 2nd series (50 subjects as suggested by Tim Newcomb's article in VCBC #38 June 2004).

I didn't make it all the way on that one either when life got in the way and I had to take a detour.

I've never seriously attempted to include backs other than recruit, but based on the number I recall seeing while working on my recruit subsets, I suspect putting together a t207 set is a good bit more difficult than putting together a t206(520) set.

Here is my Speaker:

Couldn't agree more guys. If T207 was as popular as other sets, commons would be out of reach for most and the Broad Leaf class would be selling for my first born. I'm glad there is less competition for the cards and so is my bank account as well as my wife
