So I've got a few sets going at the same time - Diamond Stars, 51' Bowman, 54' Topps and 56' Topps - but going to focus my efforts on T205 for the time being...so far, here's my progress to date:



- 41/215
- 7 HofF (Brown, Jennings, Marquard, Mathewson, Speaker, Wallace w/ Cap & Wheat)

- all PSA 3 or SGC 40 except Chase - Both Ears (PSA 4) & Wheat (SGC 50)



My latest pick ups below...

Thanks Leon! I'm hoping to spend about $30-35 per common, but that is proving to be somewhat difficult...am I being realistic?

Ok, I'll bite. The basic set is 208 and the master is generally considered around 222 (although more variations certainly exist). How did you decide on a goal of 215?

Great cards btw! I'm at about 80/2?? myself.

- Christy Mathewson Cycle Back, Incorrect Stats
- Pat Moran Stray Line of Type
- Bobby Wallace No Cap - 1 line of 1910 Stats
- Kaiser Wilhelm Suffered in 18th line of bio

from what I have seen it all depends on condition. You can get some that don't look quite as nice for a fair amount less. I am trying to keep mine somewhat uniform...I have quite a few to add...

I've been working on the same set in about the same 3-4 range for a few years now. I've got most of the HOFs and SPs and a good amount of the verations but still need around half the commons.

Good hunting guys it's a fun and beautiful set.

Nice cards matt! That wallace no cap with the paper loss on face I was bidding on too! :mad: lol

Those are looking mighty nice there Leon! There'll be a nice looking Cobb in the next LOTG auction that would be a great #32!! :D

My one and only T205. Stained Honest long cut back.

I really don't understand the backs on t205's. I have found dozens of the Otis Crandall crossed T's sold but can only find a few with Honest.

Anyone have a good primer I can look at to understand cards/backs?

Holy cow, Leon! Where do you find all of the relatively uniform, raw T205s? I never see them!

Aquarian Sports Cards 06-16-2017 06:17 PM

well he's gotten several from me :)

vintagebaseballcardguy 06-16-2017 08:13 PM

There's just something about seeing the T205s all together like that. It seems most of the ones I see for sale are slabbed. I only own two or three 205s, and they are slabbed. Makes me want to buy some ungraded ones and free my slabbed ones, if I had the courage... :)

And I have been eyeing a few more!!

I am being a very picky lower grade T205 collector on these. They have to be well centered and not have a lot of chipping on the borders. The only outliers are cards with special attributes I pick up along the way ie...green borders, blue borders, 4 partial backs etc......It's been fun so far and gives me something I can almost always work on. And my latest pick up...

Hey! I'm working on one of these as well...albeit strictly a National League set.

So quick question. I'm looking for a sanity check and double-checking my math...I've got the National League section at a total of 105 players. I'm not including any variations or multiple player poses but strictly just 105 individual players.

Is this the number everyone else has?

Thanks in advance.

asoriano 06-19-2017 12:51 PM

Nothing better than a mislabeled slab and a poorly titled eBay auction to boot. Thanks for saving me a bundle of cash, PSA!

edit --- no way that's a 3 it should be regarded but by a different compay maybe?

Just picked up this group of 83 T205's ranging from PR to EX condition. Always fun to upgrade. Many will be available.

Nice haul. I've been working on a set for a couple years. It's been a little slower lately but I did recently pick up a nice Collins Mouth Open. I've already forgotten what the opinion on the slab said...

Great cards guys. Just scanned a few new additions today too....(a few were slight upgrades). Still trying to stay lower technical grade but a few 5s have popped in. None of these are high grade.....2s-4s...It's been fun so far.....

Steve D 08-19-2017 12:33 AM

I just recently got my 111th T205, putting me at 50% for the master set. I'm working on a mostly PSA 4 set, but will take PSA 3s with high-end eye appeal.

Late to respond but will have to check. Unlike almost all of my previous collecting I am not concerned with which backs these have any longer. At first I wanted to do PB and HLC backs because of the way the gold borders look. But now I am more focused on centering and chipping...a few added...
