Default OK... I will try... but the others have more holes in the argument

You canít describe the importance of the Wagner without explaining that it is extremely short printed relative to the rest of the set and that the reason may have something to do with Wagner himself. Thatís not the case with Mikan, Nagurski, and Vezina. Those are more like the T206 Cobbís or Sporting News Ruths of their sports. I love my Pele Quigols and my C55 Vezina, but I couldnít with a straight face hold up either and say itís the T206 Wagner of anything.

But, yes, Al - what are your other ideas? XD
... than the Billy Meredith.... Over the next week, I will post 5 or so alternatives, though I may need to go into post war....
