My t206 niche set is made up as follows:

all HOF cards (minus plank)
all Southern League

The rest are cards that I think look cool with the exception of a couple of well known players.

It changes but I mainly collect pre-1980 Phillies with an emphasis on oddball and type stuff.

My other passion is T205s. Love them...

I also do Obaks...

I also work on some oddball sets (T80, Nu-Scoops, Swell, r312).

Complete sets from 1888 to 1967 of major issues.
I do not buy them complete, I really enjoy the
challenge of putting them together.
It is also easier on my pocketbook to spread out
the cost. Fortunately, most of my sets have been
completed when these cards were more affordable.

My favorites, though, are:

N162 Goodwin Champions (wrote article in VCBC)
T206
1933 Goudey
1941 Play Ball
1949 Leaf
1949 Bowman (wrote articles in 1983 BB Cds Mag & VCBC)
1949 Bowman PCL (co-authored with Mark Macrae in VCBC)
1952 Bowman FB - Large set (wrote article in 1984 SCD)
1953 Bowman (wrote article in 1985 BB Cds Mag - Krause)

My interests are

Obaks, particularly Vancouver and Victoria
Canadian born players, such as Ford, Gibson, Graney, Pop Smith, etc
cards from Canadian minor league teams

at last, but not least, Wally Schang (for my interest in Wally, and if you don't bore too easily, visit http://www.network54.com/Forum/message?forumid=153652&messageid=1087942149 )

wander occasionally into baseball books (3000+, including most of the early 20th century titles, and working my way back in the 19th)

Max

might as well chime in, someone may collect the same or want to rid themselves of what they have.

i am currently working on E107's, T204's in high grade and TTT backs in any grade(and anything related to them advertising or pack wise), and W600 sporting life cards.

ALSO very interested in adding to my collection of cabinet size photographers studio cabinets such as Carl Horner and others, including local photographers.

please email if you have such for sale or trade. have mucho dinero or extremely scarce items to trade for same.

the 1949 Bowman PCL set - should be a nice challenge! Also collect 1914 Cracker Jack Chance cards, Chance "taking a leak" cards (E92's, E101's etc.) and any E92 Cocoas of course. And, a little bit of this and that - mostly caramels. Also, a few newer cards like Dimaggio, Foxx and Williams.

What I say I collect and what I collect are two different things. My standard answer is: I collect rookies or the most siginificant card of all players voted in to the BB HOF by the baseball writers. This being said I have four Joe Jackson cards, Pete Rose's rookie, Roger Maris' rookie, and a whole host of players that were actually elected into the HOF by the veterans committee, including: Cap Anson, Monte Ward, Tim Keefe, and Charles Comiskey. I wanted an Allen & Ginter card and an Old Judge card, hence the players elected via the veterans committee. So in the end I have mostly rookie cards and significant cards of players elected to the HOF by the baseball writers, but stretch this definition so that I have different variations of cards as well as players that perhaps "should be" in the HOF as well as a few players that were important to me in my childhood following of the game (I have been asked before: What the heck is a Dave Kingman rookie card doing in your collection?).

What I collect makes sense to me, but probably no one else.

A quick and dirty tally so far:

Type set collectors = 4
ACC Set collections = 123
Individual player collections = 40
HOFers = 9
Specialty player collections = 11
Team sets = 16

This is less type sets and HOFer set collections than I would have thought;
and more team sets and individual player collections than I would have thought.

How about you?

Low Grade T206...got just over 100
1934 Goudey...got all the easy ones
Autographed baseballs of 500 HR players and 72-74 A's
Some newer sets from before 1991

Id love to be able to collect what some of you have shown in other threads.

In any set from any country, especially the guys without American issued cards. But I don't have the will power to resist other stuff so I pick up T cards now and then, the V100 set, and lately I've been picking up strip cards when I think I found a good deal. I tend to work on more affordable sets as i just don't have the patience to save up for high end cards. That and the "common" guys in a lot of sets are interesting to me. I was pretty excited to win V100's of Jesse Barnes and George Cutshaw, for example. Yep, I'm that big a geek about this.

I have a limited budget so I'm down to only collecting 1930 Rogers Peet cards. Before my budget got pinched I really enjoyed collecting Obaks and 1920's "w" cards

Pre WWII - Mainly T 206's. Also any HOF'ers from pre war sets that are in beater condition and hence affordable.

Also anything St. Louis Cardinals, especially oddball stuff, 60's food issues, and Lou Brock and Bob Gibson.

I collect low grade T206's and am stuck at 452 at the present time. I will probably "hold" for a couple of years until I go back to work and then start on the rest of the "obtainable" cards. Barring a winning lottery ticket, I'll never have a Wagner (or a Plank, or any of the other big cards).

I freely admit my collection is inferior to nearly every other collection on this board. I have no shame of my collection and have no jealousy towards those with superior ones. (OK...maybe Im a little jealous, but not in a bad way!)
