Default Show-n-tell us of your favorite T206's in your collection

OK, let's take a break for now from all this "heavy" stuff regarding T206's, and have a Show-n-Tell of your favorite T206 cards in your collection.
Card's condition is immaterial, what can be more interesting is the story behind why certain T206's are your favorites.

I'll start this show with 3 of my sentimental favorites......


Here is my first T206....I acquired this Chase at the Willow Grove Show in Pennsylvania (Spring 1981).






The red Cobb with a SOVEREIGN 460 back is a very tough card to find. It was the last card in completing my SOVEREIGN-Only set of 408 cards.

.




Mr. Plank was the last card I needed to complete my SWEET CAPORAL Factory #30-Only set. It's now "complete" with 468 cards (no Wagner).

.



Hey guys,
Looking forward to seeing your favorite T206's.

Hey Ted, when I was a kid my first set was the 1965 Topps. My favorite card was Yastrzemski. He was posed as if he was about to catch a fly ball. As an eight year old I didn't realize that it was just a pose. I really thought that the photographer caught him in the act of making a catch.

I noticed that in the T206 set, Mitchell is in a very similar pose, so that is one of my favorites:

The Merkle throwing is another favorite, particularly this Brown Lenox, which seems to be a 1 of 1:

The Cobb bat off shoulder is one of the prettiest cards in the set IMO, and of course its a Cobb:

And I'll finish my post with a Plank to keep yours company:

Ted, I thought that you sold that Merkle/ Uzit at the 2015 National.

Here's my favorite portrait:

Nice Plank. But how come it is only a SGC-40 for such a nice Plank? Paper loss on the back?
