Default nice poll

Nice poll. A quick thought is that I am not sure anyone ever felt that the 1869 Peck and Snyder is the Holy Grail of 19th Century cards. If you add in the qualifier that there has to be at least 10 known (or 5 for that matter), thereby being somewhat collectible, then there is only 1 that would qualify. I voted for the Just So

If we take out the requirement that the card must be attainable from the other thread, I would pick the Just So Cy Young as well.

I wanted to make this poll without too many specifics. Only which card is the Holy Grail. It seems these 5 cards deserve the most attention.

I would have voted for the N172 Anson in uniform, but I'm biased by my location so I had to vote for the Peck and Snyder Reds card.

I don't think it should matter if the card is attainable or not, heck, the t206 Wagner is not attainable for the vast majority of collectors.

I went with Anson, biggest name from the most popular/mainstream 19th cent set.

I agree completely concerning rarity. I re-read my above statement and just want to be clear on my thought. The holy grail should have nothing to do, necessarily, with scarcity. My holy grail is the one I voted for....regards

Default Peck and Snyder James Creighton

Does anyone have an image of the Peck & Snyder James Creighton card?

I don't believe I ever saw one before.

Thanks,
Tony

I went with the N172 Anson in uniform as the "Holy Grail" for the same reasons as Jeff P. above.

However, if given the choice between that card and the Just So Cy Young for my personal collection (not that either one will ever be in my collection most likely), Young would probably edge out the Anson by just a tad.

A shameless bump to the top. I find the results interesting and a bit surprising. I thought N172 Anson in uniform would garner over 50% of the votes. Just So Cy Young has some strong support.
