I had a Shag OM back but had to move it to cover other purchases. Eventually I'll tackle the SL, but for now I'm just targeting a OM SL back (again).

How about T206 players that spent time in prison (Jerry Downs comes to mind, probably others?).

"The T206 Collection: The Players and Their Stories" is a fun book that will help keep your interest. I got a copy for Christmas a few years ago. Unfortunately, I haven't seen it since then Hopefully, I find it some day because it looks like a fun supplement to collecting the set.

They have it for sale at the Hall of Fame. I almost bought it. I probably should have.

How about Germany Schaefer, who stole first base?

Or Gabby Street, who caught a ball dropped from the Washington Monument?

Since your from Ohio how about doing a subset of all of the players born in
Ohio. A quick check of the A-B's I see eight T206 players.

Fred Abbott
Red Ames
Harry Armbruster
Johnny Bates
Bob Bescher
Bill Bradley
Roy Brashear
Roger Bresnahan
