View Full Version : Where to find a good T205 (Basic) checklist?

02-19-2012, 01:38 PM
Hey All,

Where do you suppose I could find a nice PDF (or equivalent) checklist for the 1911 T205 basic set, similar to the '15 Cracker Jack list linked below?


I took up the Old Gold set this past week and I'm anxious to start checkin' 'em off.

Thanks in advance!

208, eh?


02-19-2012, 10:22 PM
This is easily my favorite set...I guess sometimes I want to collect the master set and sometimes I don't...I think the listed checklists can be confusing.
Here's why:
The variations in pose are usually listed out...those are totally different looking cards. Then there are some slightly different variations...an initial here and an intial there (see Leifield, Latham) , different stat lines (see Wallace, Hoblitzell)
Then you have crazy stuff like Wilhelm with and without R in "suffered" or Mathewson whose Cycle back shows a 37-1 Win/loss record, but those are only present with certain backs. That's just a few examples.

I notice that the checklists above have A+B versions listed on some of the cards I mention above, so if you collected all of those you'd have at least 8 more cards above the 208.

I have quite a few of the errors, but I don't know if I want to pay big money for a stray line of text or a misspelled name variation...maybe:confused:
I know this...I have a base set (or maybe I should say a partial master set which consists of all of the front variations...)

So after all these years of collecting this set, I still don't know when I am going to say I am done...

I'm scratching my head over the same thing, Brian. I've located several different checklists and resources and I'm finding that the numbers vary. Some show a Basic set with 208, while PSA recognizes only 206. Who's right, I wonder?

As for your collection, you've got some impressive prewar goodies in there. My Cracker Jack set is coming along...


02-20-2012, 08:46 AM
I'd say a basic set is 208. PSA has only 206 because they don't differenciate between the Hal Chase 1 ear or 2 ear, or the Bobby Wallace with/without cap.

Thanks for the thread and the link, scoutsout;
I've been looking for exactly that format, and have just printed the 208 name checklist on one page.

Why is the Matty 37-1 card not included? Doesn't seem any different than the Wilhelm variations.

02-20-2012, 10:47 AM
Thanks for that little tidbit, Bruce. I had another question, though: why do you suppose PSA doesn't have a spec number assigned to Hal Chase, Otis Crandall, Patsy Dougherty, Dolly Gray, R. Hoblitzell, A. Latham, A. Leifield, et cetera?

02-20-2012, 07:30 PM
Why is the Matty 37-1 card not included? Doesn't seem any different than the Wilhelm variations.

To be honest I think that only one of every front is an actuall basic checklist. 1 hobby, 3 chase, both crandalls, both Dougherty, one of the wallace no caps, and so on.

02-20-2012, 07:55 PM
I guess it's all how you slice it....
Some might say for example , that the two Crandall cards or Leifield would only be included in a "master" set.

By general definition, A basic set should be just one card from each player, not variations. 198 cards this way.

But for T205, I think most would agree that at minimum you would include the alternate poses (examples like Wiltse, Harmon, Barger, Bresnahan etc) in a basic set.

That version leaves the set at 209.

Still, sometimes when the stars are aligned I think the master set is 221 cards but that can certainly be debated :confused:
