Default Just another guy putting together a T205 set one card at a time...

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...

Very nice. You are some of my competition ...

..and let's all please be careful when uploading pics to our forum from any outside hosting service. If they are 3x the size of your screen, they need to be made smaller before posting. These were resized from the tapatalk download... thanks to all....

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

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

Default Love it.

I'm going for the Piedmont Factory 42 set. It's been more difficult than I expected. I just picked up these 2.

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.

According to the label, it's the "One L" (misspelled name on back) version.

I questioned it in my mind when I first saw the post three days ago, before I remembered that the variation is on the back.

I put together an unimaginably horrible set. Here's a little website I did about the adventure. Most of the set are skins, but most of the key cards are at least fronts and backs.

A few pickups in the last month or so. The Barger partial B, Kirb White, and Wiltse are Piedmont 42's.

Default Thomas pick up....

Been a little slow lately. Hard to find nice, cheap T205s I need, which fit the characteristics I want...Plus, set collecting is sort of new for me ....

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?

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...

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...

Working on a low grade set and just picked up a lot of 4 SP's on eBay for ~$160. Pretty excited even though the cards are banged up. Such a fun set to collect!

Yes they are aesthetically pleasing. This is my latter part of the collection page. Up to around 105 or so...
