I'm all about basics, and based upon the two you shared, the basics are basically near minty! You have been added to the Hall of EGGS.

Just a visible bump, but not one that you should be too concerned about, or feel the need to visit a doctor.

I would love to add some more yolks to the list, especially those who are beginning or are just a little ways on their EGGS journey.

I saw that the below was accidentally posted to another thread, so am adding it here and to the EGGS list. Mother Hen is always on the lookout for errant EGGS posts.

Finally got around to counting my eggs ((251))
Having obtained all the HOFs, SPs, and cards that are least a 2 or above from the regular set. I found I have no real want to go after the remaining commons. So not complete set or 400 for me. Still my favorite set of all time.

Nice John. Your 251 EGGS will have a nice place to nest upon the list.

I'm at 359. No Hoblitzell, Matty, or suffered. Funny, in 1975 my set was complete. A number of variations have been added since. Any extra points for having the first Hindu reported in the hobby? (1974)--Rich Egan was the keeper of the master list back then. Correspondence with Lionel Carter, Egan, etc found them initially dubious. My "scanner" back then was a Canon camera with film in it. Had to send them prints to convince then there was such an animal as a T205 Hindu.

So cool that your set has been intact for almost 50 years. And no wonder why Hindu cards are so tough to come by...you captured your Hindu's soul with your camera, and thus all the smart T205 Hindus subsequently went into hiding!

EGGS EGGS everywhere, spotted an updated # on the August pick-up thread (a nice Cobb), so have updated accordingly on post #2.

How nice of your sibling. Just shows you that not all brothers are a pain in the asterisk. I will hang another star alongside your score.

Hi all. I just started my T205 set in earnest last month. Thanks to a few BST buys I'm at 60 cards, almost all ungraded. Looks like my EGGS is 65 thanks to the WaJo which I've had for a while. Fun idea, I'll try to remember to update my progress here. Oh, and if anyone has dupes they'd like to sell, I'm interested!

Thanks

Hey Brian,

Just getting around to checking out this thread and counted my holdings. You can put me at 29* EGGS points for now. I just starting to pick up more T205s so hopefully I will be able to chime in more in the future as well.

Thanks.

I guess better to be missing a couple of Hoblitzells versus Cobb and Young, for example. Because you already have a couple of Hoblitzells...how many Hoblitzells does a person really need, anyhow?

Thatís an excellent question BP.
For most sets I donít collect variations because they (to each his own) donít excite me.
Having a fully different pose? Sure thing.
Having a stray dot /stray line or an asterisk or something ? No thank you.

But for the awesome EGGS quest, I find myself wanting those slight imperfections and changes. Ive cracked into a few of them which has prompted a decent EGGS tally. But these are hard to find in T205. Everyone is chasing about 10-12 cards from the carton.
Iíll still try but I havenít added a new yolk in a long time.

This picture has been making its rounds through social media, thought I'd add it here. Anyone know if this is a member of Net54?
