Default T209-1 Contentnea survey

Posted By: Rob G.

Hello,
My name is Rob, I'm a long time lurker, and this is also my first post. I was recently checking my set of T209's. I noticed that some of my cards have a factory 12 overprint on the back. I was just curious to see how many others have the overprint on them. I've done some research, and I can only confirm the existence of 2 other cards. I know most don't collect this set, but if you do have any it would be appreciated if you could check. I'm trying to upload a scan of some of my cards, but I've never posted a scan to the web, so hopefully it will appear. Thanks!

I've been collecting the T209's since the mid '80's.
I have 2 sets of the type 1's, and 219 of the type 2's.
The purple stamp factory 12, is definitely part of the type 1 set.
However, you wont find them on all the type 1's.
Time, and handling will wear off some of them.
I've always found both sets to be interesting.
If you're trying to collect the set, go for it, and lots of luck.

Joe P.

Oops, I forgot.

Welcome Aboard!

Those are nice cards.

I have one example (and it has the factory overprint). I would be interested to see the results as well. There is an old thread that relates to the factory overprints on T209-1's. Welcome to the board.





Found it....

Thanks for the replys and the warm welcome. I have 6 different players that have the overprint. Walsh, Gilmore, Crockett, Cooper, Hoffman, and Lane. I've seen a copy of Stubbe and Martin, and now the Pope. Do you guys think its possible to complete this set with just overprints. I've searched everywhere on the web trying to find information about these, but there just isn't much information out there. Joe, I never thought about the possiblity of them wearing away over time, that might explain why they seem harder to come by.

Thanks Leon, and also thanks for making my image smaller. I did see the copy of Stubbe on your website, and thats the only example I've seen of him.

I have Martin of Spartanburg - w/Fact. 12 Overprint.

Although the overprints seems harder to locate, eitherway a very tough issue - tougher than most realize.

Hope the info helps,

Mark
