Default Player Collections of T206 ??

I was reading up on SABR about Heine Zimmerman and for some reason it occurred to me ....... Could some of the players back then actually collected T206s ???

I don't think it's all that far-fetched to think about. Smoking back then was nothing like it is now. It wasn't looked down upon unless you were a woman. Perhaps players tried to get their own cards ???

Does anyone know of or have heard anything about players actually collecting T206s ??

Sorry if this is a repeat of an earlier thread. I can't imagine there wasn't a single player that didn't have in some form a collection of T206s.

I don't know if this counts, but from an old thread, here's Harry Caray with Gabby Street.

I'm sure it counts for something !!! One of them looks like Carey must have been collecting them !!! Imagine that. You could potentially be owning a T206 by Carey or Street.

This is what I'm getting at !!! Thanks for posting this !!!

I see a couple HOFers no Wagner ahhaha.

Default Not the right era, but Joe Garagiola had quite a T206 collection at one time

Don't know if it is still in his possession or not, but there was an article in Vintage and Classic Baseball Collector I believe, where he talked about spreading them out, and just looking at them for hours.

Any baseball players in particular work for this thread. I'm just interested. Even modern players (though I doubt it).

Still curious about of that era though.

Actually, there are several modern/current players who actively collect - ranging from tobacco cards all the up to the modern stuff. Not sure how many really care about their own cards, but a few are into collecting in general.

I won't out them here because some of them don't want to make a big deal about it publicly, but several current guys are very much into it.

Are they members here lol ??? It'd be interesting to know who gives a hoot about collecting T206s.

That's not a T206. That is someone named Schaffer, from a different set.
