Default T206 Southern League cards (re-visited)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * T206 Reference, Theory's, Surveys, etc. * * * * * * * * * * * * *




The T206 Southern League cards represent 4 Leagues in "Dixie". Checklist for these 48 subjects is found in Post # 146 in this thread. OK, let's start with the 20 guys in the
Southern Association......







Texas League......





Virginia and South Atlantic Leagues (22) subjects




In my opinion, the 2 toughest cards in this Southern League series are Ed Foster and Frank Shaughnessy. I cannot explain why Foster is so tough, but I do understand why Shaughnessy
is tough. Frank has quite a "following". He played Baseball and Football during his years at Notre Dame (1901-1904). Played briefly for the Philadelphia A's in 1908.
Frank is in three Hall of Fames...... Canadian Football Hall of Fame, the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and the McGill University Sports Hall of Fame. Furthermore, he was the President
of the International League from 19361960. Frank was an amazing guy.

Default T206 color printing errors......let's see some of these interesting T206's

* * * * * * * * * * * * T206 Reflections, Theory's, Surveys, etc. * * * * * * * * * * * *



........... Two Pennsylvanians ........



I have a few cards which are missing one of the ink passes in the 6-color process of the T206 cards. I know of numerous T206 color error cards, so if you have some
post them here.

. .




The rightmost Lundgren card is missing the Blue ink pass. This is a very rare occurrence with T206's....since the Blue ink was an intervening application in the 6-color
printing process.

Default Contribute to this wonderful thread

Have really enjoyed reading all the great posts in this thread, and a huge kudos to TedZ for all you do to keep the eye candy and knowledge flowing (equally fun from this collector's perspective).

I collected cards (and comics) as a kid but never reached the echelon of T-cards. I quit and sold them when I was 18, wanting money for college-related fun (what a stupid move!). Anyhow, fast forward 15 years and I got back into comic books agressively. Put together the #1 registry set for Superman #1-423, among some other prized possessions. Then, more recently, I caught the card bug again and went straight to the T-206 set as I always wanted any and every card from the set, but especially the Toronto players (hometown as a kid)

And here we are today, where my quest continues....have a set of 522 but working on a fully PSA graded set in 4+. I think I'm 27th or 28th on the registry, but still filling in some holes, too. I know that the registry is not everyone's bag, I just enjoy the hunt and competition, I suppose. I am dumbfounded by the registry's top set, with an average grade of 8....pretty darn close to the highest grade extant on every card!

My goal is to ultimately upgrade to a set of PSA 6-7 (but will probably remain a set of 522....we'll see).

The variety of T206 is wonderful. The different leagues and from two countries, the backs, the poses, and so many epic players who have legacies that will withstand the test of time!

I know this is a lame post without pictures ("PICS OR IT DIDNT HAPPEN!") but I promise I'm working on them! Trying to create some group shots of the set, and might have to start posting while holes still remain in the set. But I also don't want to use up too much bandwidth on this tremendous thread with multiples, so I figured better to wait!

Finally, to all our veterans - Thank you for your service!

Please keep all the information coming!

Best
Joey

Ted, I have a bunch of these missing color cards, mostly missing red. Too many to post all of them. I also threw in a scrap, which isn't really the same.

Here's a Baker missing most of the blue pass, and of course the Plank is missing the dark blue.

Ted, about that Willis of yours that is missing color:what is the back? Mine is a Hindu, and they frequently seem to be much lighter.

Hi Joey

I really appreciate your complimentary words. I've learned a lot these past 40 years completing sets.....1887 Allen & Ginter > 1987 TOPPS (multiple sets of many of the major sets).
I believe in sharing information which I have gleaned from extensive research in such sets as the 1888 N162, the T205 & T206, the 1933 Goudey, the 1941 Play Ball, the 1949 Leaf,
and the 1948-1953 Bowman (BB & FB) sets. Oh, and I cannot forget 1952 Topps.

And, this forum is a great stage for the exchange of meaningful info regarding all aspects of this hobby.


Thanks again,

TED Z

Hi Sean

I'm familiar with the Red > Orange / brown HINDU phenomena. I've had some of these color error T206's in the past.

Anyhow, my color error Willis is a PIEDMONT 150 card. The normal Willis is a SOVEREIGN 150.


Thanks for posting your color errors.
