Default T207 Miscuts: When do they become rare?

As a few may know, I've only be an active pre-war collector since the beginning of the year. Most of my collecting time has been on Old Judge cards, as you may have noticed from the monthly Pick Up threads. I recently partnered with a Net54 member on a larger REA lot of pre-war type cards. My main purpose for going after the lot was the E102 Matty, E90-1 Cobb, and a T207 Johnson.

The cards arrived and I started to do a once over. I knew from the beginning the T207 Johnson was a miscut, but I didn't think about the way it which it was miscut. The factory number is on the top.

If this were a T206 I know right then it carries a premium, but since this is a T207 I have very little threads or details on rarity, value, or T207 miscut collectors to do my due diligence. I sent the card to PSA and the card came back a 4 MC (very happy!!).

What is the consensus on this card?
Is there a market for it?
Are there premiums placed on T207s?

Steven

They become rare and valuable when collectors start caring about t207.

I'd say that will be when hell freezes over!!!!!

I have a factory top miscut t207. I don't think I paid a premium even though it was advertised as being a miscut through an auction house. So as stated above I don't think they carry a huge premium, but if you were to get two people that like prewar errors/miscuts without caring which set you may get a bit of one. I fall into this category, but have been staying away from purchasing recently.

I don't think there is much of a premium on T207 miscuts unless they are really, really off. I wouldn't put a premium on your T207 Johnson but it's neat. I only have one error T207 and it's the Bressy that makes you think you are having double vision ....I didn't pay a premium and the seller (I think it was Rob A) didn't even notice the double print on the front..

When there is high demand for T207's. However, I don't see that in the foreseeable future.

A player collector might be interested. It would also interest the freak freaks like me. In short, it is definitely collectible. That said, I do agree with the consensus that you won't see the sort of primo pricing that T206 freaks get [or got; I think the run is over on them]. The opposite historically has been true--the error cards sell for less than average cards due to the defects. Of course, to me that just says now is the time to stock up on these when they can be obtained cheaply. I got this one at a National with a sweet Obak miscut [also shown] and the dealer thought I was nuts for wanting them:



An example of a miscut back I have:

I value PSA 4 (MC) as PSA 1.

On the contrary I value PSA MC designated cards at the value of the grade or sometimes higher. That is why this hobby is fun everyone gets to decide the value of items for themselves.

IMO, I prefer PSA to grade that a PSA2 than a PSA4MC
