Not sure of my EGG/Kraken number as I mostly collect the backs.
I always love seeing this card as it immediately takes my brain to this photo- one of the best 1910 Paul Thompson portrait photos used for the t205 set in terms of image quality. The card doesn’t do it justice even when the registration is spot on such as your beautiful example. His extreme features just aren’t quite captured in the card. It is not the most valuable Type 1 photo in terms of dollars in my collection but it provides great joy. Yes.. I know how weird that sounds ��

If anybody is looking at all your beautiful cards and thinking how sad it is that they have almost none, I have eggsactly one left. Medical bills, but I couldn't part with this one. It's not nice but it's mine.

That Paul Thompson photo doesn't hide a thing...it is pretty impressive. I think the T205 artist(s) did a great job with capturing the player's essence, but they also were not afraid to smooth out facial features. The original photoshoppers.

It's great that you were able to keep the card that meant the most to you, and its qualifies for eggsactly 7 on the EGGS list. Stay healthy and enjoy the Joss.

Very nice Thompson photo. Thanks for posting it. B&W photography is becoming a lost art.

Also, nice Joss. I don't have one in my collection, yet. It is a long work in progress.

Brian, I looked at my T205 box, placed the Schulte in there, and thought about counting the points. I will get to it soon. I should have some extra time over the holidays. Rob
