Default As things evolve....your current focus on collecting pre-war?

Posted By: Eric Brehm

I have managed to keep my pre-war focus on two sets: T206 and 1933 Goudey. For T206 I have narrowed the focus further to the HOF players only, to keep the project manageable. I have only strayed into type collecting to get one 1915 Cracker Jack card, the Joe Jackson.

I went through an exciting decade-long hunt for T206's back in the 80's and came up a Wagner and Plank short of the set (in the days before Doyle was a legit #524). The thrill of building that set was unbeatable. My attempts back then at building T201, T202, and T205 sets came up short. These days, my love for a wider variety of cards has transformed me into some odd hybrid, collecting both sets and types. On the type front, my focus is on single mid-condition examples for E, D, and N sets. Someday, I envision building a wall display of type cards a la Old Cardboard's beautiful type posters. Then again, why spend money on a wall display when I could buy more cards! happy.gif

On the set front, I'm progressing well towards the more common N sets: 28, 29, 43, 162, 184. Not sure which direction after that.
Oddly enough, I don't hold N172 as a priority, to me it's just a geriatric T206 on steroids, maybe I'll just order the new Old Judge tome and live vicariously thru that!

All the Obak sets minus the mysterious, elusive and freak show pricey T4's.

T206's --- I'm about 15 cards short of the set, but seem to like to keep this set perennially unfinished.

Just started T205 last December. In terms of visual appeal, T205 is just about the most condition sensitive set I've seen. A beater T212 or T206 still looks nice to me. A beater T205 looks like peacock vomit.

T207's. Dig this set. Slowly chipping away.

1911 Zeenuts. Only a few so far, trying to decide whether to dive in for the long haul.

D311's. Absolutely beautiful cards, but so tough to make serious headway. On the fence. Should I stay or should I go.

95% raw collection. Only the 1909 Obaks and 1911 Zeenuts stay in their SGC holders, but the wrench and screwdriver remain at the ready.

"Being a Detroit collector is very expensive ( Ty Cobb alone - ouch !!!!) and also they go back to 1881." from previous Mike's post.

Mike,

Yes, I was warned by Mr. Nagy at a card show in Michigan that collecting Detroit would be quite expensive, told me to bad I don't collect the Cubs. happy.gif

Joe


Ty Cobb, Spikes flying!
