Default Show us your 1911 OBAK cards....or other series

I collect only the 1911 OBAK cards since they have Bios on their backs. Here are some.

But, feel free to post any of your OBAK cards here.

The 1911 set was the first I pursued, partly because overall I thought it had the largest % of jaw-droppingly beautiful, deep rich color cards of all the 3 years, but also because of the bios on the back. I always thought they were some of the corniest write-ups around, and I loved their frequent, inventive, and clever use of the word 'clever'. And the frequent stretching for something positive to say (I wish I were known for being clever at tagging baserunners and my ground covering tendencies, and who doesn't need more snap and vim in their life?). Here's some scans I recently found behind the walls when remodeling (found the scans, not the cards). The cards I actually found inside my computer. Somebody probably used them 105 years ago as insulation for delicate computer circuitry.

Are there any baseball cards more aesthetically pleasing than Obaks?

I love the Obak colors. My T212s focus on oddities, a double struck back, back ghost, yellow layer printed on the back, and 2 of the 3 known Obak F stamps. I am looking forward to the rest of this thread.

Here are some more raw Obaks. I love both the 1910s and 1911s, but I think these are 1910s, because this is what I have on my phone right now. I have about 30 1911s, all raw, and may post some pics of them later.
