I asked myself the same questions as the OP a few years back and also came up with the E93 set. This was in 2009 so I don't remember specifically what I paid for the cards but I don't recall any one being a particular toughie. There's not a clunker in the set - the Cobb, Matty and Wags are all appealing - and the Leach and Phillippe are breathtaking in almost any condition.

Thinking about these cards makes me miss Jim Blumenthal. What a wonderful guy he was.

My humble set: https://tinyurl.com/manpbkx

I know T206 is a massive set, but the beauty of it, is that you can collect it so many different ways- pick a team and collect those players, or southern leaguers, or HOFers, or collect some different backs, etc.

T206 set. Can't go wrong with it.

Go big or go home, right?


Regardless of what you decide to do, good luck with the journey!

Another choice is the E120 set. I do confess that I very much prefer the B&W, real-photo sets over the colorful, artists'-rendition sets.

Here's an e121 for example:

I'd go with t202s. Great looking and nothing that will break the bank.

Denny, one big negative to your "crown jewel" recommendation is there's no Babe Ruth in the T200 set!

I'm a big fan of black and white sets too and love e121's.

Another option that bridges the gap of Cobb-Ruth era would be 1921 exhibits (First year for exhibits too!). Not too big at 64 cards. Some nice images!

It's a little later than Ruth, Cobb and Mathewson, but it still is pre-war. There are 72 brightly colored cars in art deco style. Compared to the T and E cards, they can be found pretty reasonably.

It has early Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams and quite a few Hall of Famers. Off the top of my head there's Dickey, Reese, Cronin, Klein, Foxx, Gehringer, Greenberg,... Then, there's interesting players like Dominic and Vince DiMaggio and Johnny "Double No Hit" Vander Meer.

I recently put a VG set together in about a year. So, the supply is good.
