Thanks! I'm casually working on this set as inexpensive examples come my way. I'm really not even a boxing fan per se, but the artwork is stellar.

That's how I started. I was gifted a lot of random T cards and I liked a lot of the history themed cards in it. There were 7 T220 silvers in it, and I thought they were kind of funky at first. Who wants to collect cards of scantily clad dudes? And now I'm a boxing guy. I collect T42's and know no ornithology. The T card art is just so good, it doesn't matter what the subject is, I've come to collect pretty much all of them.

That's the problem: you see examples of the artwork and you just get hooked on all of the issues.

Similar thing happened to me. Bought a box of T cards from a neighbor. T218, 219, 220 and a bunch of other random T cards.

Maybe there's nicotine on the cards?



Reminds me of Robin Williams' old line: I give the pigeons my methadone so they come back.

Wolgast on the right is new. A red isn't complete without an orange.

This is almost certainly not an actual printing variation but just damage from exposure, like almost all orange-instead-of-red T and E cards. Still looks different enough to slot it in my set.

That's an interesting assertion, Greg. Please expand on it.

4 poster cuts on the left, and some more cards for my master build on the right. Lewis turned out to be an upgrade. 142/250 cards down. T225-1's are not super tough for any of the backs I think, but that there are 10 of them for each subject means that it will take many years for all of the cards to even surface to market.

Was happy to win this 2012 Panini Golden Age. The image short prints were only 2 per case and are hard to find now, doesn't crop up often. The card on right is the SP image variant, the card on left the base. I like picking up the modern renditions of the 19th and early 20th century boxers that appear in the N/T/E sets.

Last pickup of the year unless one of you guys wants to cut down my want list.

T218 Master Set card #626 out of 632 possible (maybe 631, I might be chasing one phantom) now in hand. Was very happy to see this one pop up.

Guess I lied, snuck one good one in before the clock strikes 12. Ketchell, actually Attell, completes my 22 card E75 set. The 2 error cards are pretty tough, was happy to see one come to market.

Broke my c. 1910 focus for this one. I don't know what version it is, there are apparently red mojo, red wave, red refractor, red etc. versions that I can't keep up with and tell the difference between in a picture. 1990 Pro Set Football is one of my favorite sets of all time (great photography, I like the design, so many variations, and so so cheap) and Fury is probably a true great. One of the problems with modern boxing is that most of the cards are rare and pretty ugly or low effort. There are so few well made ones to pick from. I tend to pick up the pugilists from Goodwin, Ginter, and random one-offs like this if they are cheap.

The back gives his record as 30-0-1 but then says that he beat Wilder 3 times. I'm not sure if this is an uncorrected error, or they are passive aggressively acknowledging the obvious instead of a judge's BS

I'm sure I'm not the only one making pick ups. Show 'em folks!

2 French Mags from 1910 featuring Sam Langford and Tom Sharkey on the covers.

Also: a 1955 Swedish non-sports related comic book featuring a great 3 card panel on the back, with Rocky Marciano book-ended by John L. and Corbett.

I have two 1/1's, the blue and gold variants I think the kids call 'cracked ice', so I looked for others in the rainbow. An Orange Refractor that is not numbered but I think difficult, and a different kind of red refractor numbered to 10. I'm not quite clear how many versions I would need for a rainbow, but if they're dirt cheap I'm picking them up when I see them. Not much to collect in modern boxing. The refractors show up better in photographs in low light

Coupla recent arrivals:
- Gunboat Smith vs Georges Carpentier for the World White Heavyweight Championship, July 16, 1914 in London
- Duane Bobick vs Kallie Knoetze for the World White Heavyweight Championship, January 28, 1978 in Johannesburg, South Africa

Always looking for anything on Luther McCarty, Arthur Pelkey and the White Hope era.

Crossed off another Ogdens, this one from the B series. Love these little cards, collecting the boxers especially but the host of different subject matters makes the Black Ogden's sets a ton of fun to pick up in random lots when they appear.

Mace is a common card, but he was a significant heavyweight and middleweight champion, one of the early scientists of the ring who beat much larger men routinely. He and Mike Donovan toured together after retirement and put on shows intermittently for a number of years promoting scientific boxing. He fought exhibitions at his boxing school in Cape Town and elsewhere into his late 70's.

Yes it is. Mace has at least 3 Ogdens cards off memory using this same base photo, canít remember if the other 2 have the Wood credit. No clue if the credit is true or not lol

Iíve been wanting to pick up some boxing, but this is the first Iíve actually grabbed. Was a Sullivan, cheap, and with a tolstoi backÖso figured would be a good start.
