Default T206 Proofs

Posted By: Ben

From what I've taken in from reading the articles on t206museum.com, there was a very substantial "find" in New York many years ago that included a large group of t206 and t3 proofs. This find included a well-known proof of an uncatalogued Eddie Collins card, which was purchased and later sold by Charlie Sheen (25k doesnt sound quite as astronomical a sum as it did 5 years ago, does it?)

I've also heard that several other proofs of uncatalogued southern leaguers have turned up as well - has anyone on the forum seen or handled any of these? I'm lucky enough to own a t206 proof of Mattern, a catalogued pose (scan below). Anyone else have any t206 proof scans/experiences to share? Could serve for some interesting discussion.

Default T206 Proofs

Posted By: tbob

Ben- I take it the proof of Mattern escaped the burglar? Keith Olbermann bought a group of 8 (I believe) uncatalogued proofs from the T206 set, all Southern Leaguers. It has led to speculation that perhaps there is a Joe Jackson T206 proof out there somewhere, although I frankly doubt it, but you never know.

Yes, by a real stroke of luck the Mattern managed to escape the robbery. I originally acquired the card about 3 years ago, sold it maybe 6 months after. I had always regretted the decision to sell it, so when it turned up in the hands of a fellow board member, we managed to work out a deal so that I could get it back. This was only a few months ago. It just so happened that the proof was sitting in my mailbox that very week my apartment was broken into, and therefore managed to escape. Silver lining, I guess you could call it.

I've heard the joe jackson proof rumor as well...sounds more like a fantasy to me (a very pleasant one to be sure).

Ben.
There's an interesting article on t206 proofs in vcbc #9 written by Olbermann.
Besideds the slers and the collins, he mentions:

schulte cubs (proof chicago)
brown (proof gray collar instead of blue)
kling (proof gray collar instead of blue)
bowerman (proof white collar)
oldring (white cap)
CY YOUNG! (portrait proof with a white shirt??)
among others.
I'd love to see some of these in color.
Robert A

The T206 unique proofs of Bowerman, M. Brown, Kling, and Young (portrait) are all with the Honus Wagner card in the famous 5-card strip.
That is the only copy of these unique proofs that I have seen.
