Default I bought my dream card

I've been lurking here for a while, but never been an active poster on the forum. I think I finally found a worthwhile reason to join in, as I've finally bought a card I've been wanting for 10+ years. I'm still pinching myself that I own one, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Nice card. Congratulations on picking up your dream card. Although Iím not a t206 guy, the green Cobb has always been one of my favorite cards.

Enjoy it in good health.

Sorry that you waited over 10 years. You probably paid 5x the 2010 price.

Thanks for the warm welcome. If I had the means 10 years ago, I would have bought it, but as many of you know, school, marriage, kids, and life in general can put those plans on the back-burner. It's not the $5k PSA 5 I could have had 10 years ago, but it's plenty good enough for me.

I've noticed a few of you have referenced wide borders. What's the significance of that? Does it relate to trimmed sides (or, more specifically, lack thereof)?

If (or more likely, when) I buy more t206, I'll be sure to share them here.

Exactly - borders like on this card are a nice sign that the card hasn't been on the receiving end of a haircut. Too often you see a numerically graded T206 that you'd expect to have an American Beauty back (which are narrower) but it's not. This card looks great!

Youíre my kind of collector....save up money over a period of time, look forward to making a big purchase, and then celebrate when you pull the trigger!

Great card!

So whatís next? Add some more T206 cards, or go after something different?

That is a great looking example with nice colors, big borders and rounded corners. The rounded corners not only typically helps getting a card at a better price, but also makes a fresh one like this look appropriately old.

Congrats on waiting/finding one you can really appreciate.

Here is what your Green Cobb could have looked like if you had been impatient.

I'm not sure yet. I'm weighing between jumping into the t206 set as a whole, or buying other heavy hitters from other sets (I've been eyeing a nice t206 Johnson, but there may be a 1933 Goudey Ruth in my future). Either way I'll be sure to share.
