...Regarding your......" SIDE NOTE: Apparently Levi is the only guy on earth interested in making a go at it! "

Levi B., who I've known since 1981, is only the most recent guy to attempt a "master set" of T206's. Prior to Levi, I was
collecting T206 sub-sets. Prior to my T206 adventures, Brian Weisner and Art Martineau. Before them, Tony Carrafiell, Bill
Heitman, and Irv Lerner....to mention a few. I'm sure there are others that I've left out. So, what are you talking about ?

FYI....in 2005, I broke up my 2nd T206 set and started an all-PIEDMONT set. To date, I have accumulated 2104 different
T206 front/back combinations. The following details my T206 sub-sets and additional T206's..........

CARDS
-------
521......PIEDMONT factory 25 (-Doyle, Plank, Wagner)

408......SOVEREIGN (COMPLETE)

467......SWEET CAPORAL factory #30 (-Plank, Wagner)

.35......SWEET CAPORAL factory #649 (COMPLETE)

.50......SWEET CAPORAL factory #42 (overprint)....partially complete

.66......AMERICAN BEAUTY 460 (near complete)

557......additional T206's with BROAD LEAF, CAROLINA BRIGHTS, CYCLE, DRUM, EPDG, HINDU, LENOX, OLD MILL, PIEDMONT,
--------POLAR BEAR, TOLSTOI, UZIT backs

2104......TOTAL cards


Will I continue to collect towards a Master set of T206's....that remains to be seen ?
More significant, is that my approach to collecting these T206 cards, is one which is structured. Resulting in identifying the
elusive No-Prints in these sub-sets.

TED Z

P.S.
So, try to get your facts straight before you post. And, your reference to PSA's list is a joke. Scot Reader's data and Bill
Brown's "super-set" excel spreadsheet are the most accurate.

One of the early and very significant T206 thread was posted in June 2006 by Barry Arnold, titled T206 EPDG- - - how rare in your collection ?

This thread inspired lot's of brainstorming between Net54ers regarding various aspects of T206 cards. Surveys and new theory's were explored, resulting in 363 posts
which you'll find very interesting and informative.

The El Principe de Gales (EPDG) brand dates back to 1850's. Its founder, Vicente Martínez Ybor, started producing Cigars in Havana, Cuba. In 1869, he fled from Cuba
to Key West, Florida where he continued manufacturing EPDG cigars. In 1885, he moved to Tampa, FL where he built a larger factory which produced his EPDG cigars.

Note that the EPDG cigarettes were manufactured at Factory #17 in Virginia. If any one on this forum knows where this Factory was located, please chime in....Thanx.




.... . . . . . .



To date, there are 284 confirmed T206 cards with the EPDG back.....they are listed here as a function of their respective T206 series.

There is a good probability that any (or all) of the following cards will eventually be found with BL 460 backs......

Ames (hands over head
Bender (no trees)
Chance (portrait-yellow)
Chase (blue)
Chase (dark cap)
Cobb (bat off shoulder)
Donlin (bat)
Doyle (bat)
Magee (bat)


The remaining 28 cards in the 350/460 series apparently are BL 460 "NO-PRINTS".....this list will be posted shortly.

Let's see if you can prove me wrong....And, for every one of the "No-Print" cards you confirm with a BL 460 back,
I will reward you with a Andrew Jackson Greenback !

These are IMPOSSIBLE front/back combos !

I'm so certain that the above front/back combos do NOT exist, that I am willing to offer a $500 reward to anyone here who can show me a legitimate card
of Ames with an AB 460 or UZIT back.....thereby disproving my theory.


> > > > > >


. . > > > > > > > > > >


A year ago I offered a $500 reward....check-out this thread > http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=240984. Obviously, no such Ames card(s) showed up.
One enduring quality of most National's is that you can find virtually every BB card ever issued. So, I figured I would give this experiment one more try.

The Ames (hands over head) is a 350/460 series subject. My research indicates American Lithographic printed the SWEET CAPORAL 350-460, Factory #42 backs and
the Red HINDU backs simultaneously......"matched pairs".

Ames has been confirmed with the SWEET CAPORAL 350-460 Factory #42 back. It has not yet been confirmed with the Red HINDU back. But, it's just a matter of time
that this Ames card with a Red HINDU back will be discovered.


. . . .



Furthermore, Ames card is not the only incorrect info in T206Resource....4 subjects in T206Resource's PIEDMONT 460 Factory 42 listing are identified as "confirmed".

These 4 cards, which T206Resource claims to be confirmed, have never been seen ** with PIEDMONT 460, Factory #42 backs......

Bergen (catching)
Chance (batting)
Murray (portrait)
Overall (blue sky)

For the most part, T206Resource is a dependable site to rely on.....but, they are absolutely mis-informing T206 collectors on these 6 cards noted in this thread.

You can contact me via email.... tedzan11@comcast.net. Or, look for me at the National. I'll be wandering about with $1000 burning a hole in my pocket.
So, if you have either one of these Ames cards to show me, and the card is authentic, then the $500 reward is yours....payable on the spot with cash.


** Note.... In the following post here these facts presented here will be reinforced.

This is so, because this Ames exists with an American Beauty 460 back. As noted in a recent thread
AB 460 and Red HINDU backs are mutually exclusive with the cards in the 350/460 series.

Also, these are really rare....any BLANK-FRONTS ?

I've a T-206 with no pix on the Front and a Piedmont back. It is a legitimate card missing
it's front pix....it has not been de-laminated.
When I get a chance I will scan it.

Scott,

Your description of the color error cards is vary similar to
my observations on not only T206 cards: but also N162, 1949
Leaf and Bowman cards. I've already noted my T206 color errors.

In addition, I have an N162 Fred Dunlap (normally GREEN) that
has a YELLOW background. I have 1949 Leaf Ruth & Ted Williams
with PURPLE instead of RED backgrounds. Several more Leafs that
are YELLOW instead of GREEN. And, numerous 1949 Bowmans that
are PINK instead of RED; or YELLOW instead of ORANGE or GREEN.

All the way back to 19th Century color printing, there has al-
ways been a 4 - phase process in color printing. You can still
see this when you get color copies (eg, at Staples). The copier
will scan 4 times for each color copy. To create a deep RED, it
prints a Pink or Orange tint first. To create ORANGE or GREEN
it first prints a Yellow. Now, I do not claim to be an expert
on this, but you can see how these color errors in sports cards
result when an incomplete printing run occurs at the factory.
And, in a rush to get product into the market, these cards slip
by whatever quality control exists at the factory.

confirmed a lot of Homer's writings. Nevertheless, this story
is still considered a "myth" by many.

So, I do not understand your criticism of my use of this word
to describe the "broken plate" theory, which has been passed
thru several generations of hobbyist in order to explain why
certain cards are rare.

I'm certainly no expert on printing processes (although I did
have 2 yrs. of Print Class in HS)
, but I do know that multiple
plates are created in the process of printing. Did you read my
above post where there were multiple plates of the Ted Williams
image in the 1954 Bowman "find" ?

To produce color printing takes at least 4 stages, it is somewhat
of a time consuming process. To mass produce BB cards printers
must create multiple impressions of a given image (multiple plates)
to efficiently do the job and get product out to the market.

Finally, the strip you referred to with Wagner is just a horizontal
strip. The T206's were printed in sheet form (i.e., rows and columns)
My contention (based on information I gleaned back in the early 1980's)
was that Plank was adjacent to Wagner in a column. And, it does not
take much imagination to see how Plank could have been discarded along
with Wagner.

I respect all the time & effort you have put into your T206 project. However, we are now talking about E90-1 cards. E90
cards were printed by a Lithographic firm in Philadelphia (1908-1910). The T206's were printed by American Litho (NYC)
and it's my understanding that state-of-the-art rotary off-set presses were used to print these cards.

I took the trouble of scanning Ebay's current listing of E90-1 cards. There are 178 unique E90-1 cards listed whose backs
are visible in this listing. Only 7 of these cards exhibit "ink streaks"....resulting in 3.9 %.

The grand total (of this group and the group noted in Post #36) is 386 samples. Only 14 of these cards have "ink streaks"
resulting in a mere 3.6 %.

I repeat: such a limited sampling (plus the varying characteristics of the "ink streaks") of these E90-1 cards certainly does
not make for a reliable (or scientific) method for attempting to determine valid sheet layout, or series structure ?

American Lithograph's small size printing presses had 19-inch track widths, which were sufficiently wide to print 12 cards across the sheet....hence, 36, 48, 72, 96 card sheets.
Therefore, such a sheet with 34 different subjects will have 2 double-prints included to fill-out that sheet. In the SWEET CAP 150 #649 case, my guess is that Johnson & Matty
were double-printed. Just like when TOPPS Hi# sheet (97 different subjects) had Mantle, Robinson, and Thomson double-printed to fill out their 100-card sheet.

In the Southern League case, it's anyone's guess which two players were double-printed. As a teenager, I worked in a Print Shop and I'm very familiar with printing practices.


Come-on Pat, you're nit-picking again..... "I think there were 156 subjects that were printed with 150 back "

I stated.... [B]"There are 155 different subjects"....that does not include the MAGIE error card.

to expand on your bl460 "no print" theory for cards not having a confirmed uzit and/or ab460 b/f combo i noticed that a very large majority (over 83%) of the confirmed bl460's are cards which are also confirmed with a red hindu back. I am only referring to red hindu cards which are part of the 350/460 series with the exception of the 460-only kleinow (boston). as you have already pointed out the kleinow (boston) breaks the standard back rules.

In all the cases where a confirmed bl460 back does exist with a uzit and/or ab460 back the player also has a confirmed red hindu:

Baker - confirmed with ab460 and red hindu
burch (fielding) - confirmed with uzit, ab460 and red hindu
cobb (red portrait) - confirmed with uzit and red hindu
downey (bat) - confirmed with uzit and red hindu
elberfeld (fielding) - confirmed with ab460 and red hindu
o'leary (hands on knees) - confirmed with ab460 and red hindu
seymour (throwing) - confirmed with uzit and red hindu
snodgrass (fielding) - confirmed with ab460 and red hindu

of the remaining 21 confirmed bl460 subjects which do not exist with either the ab460 or uzit all except for 5 have been confirmed with a red hindu back. These 5 subjects are listed below:

Dougherty (arm in air)
mathewson (dark cap)
mcintyre (brooklyn & chicago)
murphy (batting)
rucker (throwing)

based on these observations it appears that red hindu seems to be tied closely to the bl460 back. 24 of the 29 confirmed bl460's are also confirmed with a red hindu back. Assuming this theory to be correct then there is a possibility the 5 players above may be confirmed with a red hindu back at some point.

In addition, extending this theory to the remaining "super-prints" and remaining confirmed 350/460 series red hindu's the following cards may also be found with bl460 at some point:

Bender (no trees)
chase (blue portrait)
chase (dark cap)
cobb (bat off) - as noted this might exist, but waiting for additional confirmation
donlin (bat)
magee (bat)
manning (pitch)
pfeister (throwing)
wagner (bat/right)

any thoughts are appreciated.

While i was putting together my american beauty 460 sub-set, i observed this bl 460/rh linkage. By virtue
of the fact that ab 460 and red hindu cards are mutually exclusive. So, i'm glad that you, too, have noticed
the bl 460/rh connection.

Now pardon me, but i have to correct you on the following back data......

Baker...........has not been confirmed with ab 460
cobb............has not been confirmed with red hindu
elberfeld........has not been confirmed with ab 460
o'leary.........has not been confirmed with ab 460
snodgrass.....has not been confirmed with ab 460

my research on these 5 cards is reflected on the most current super-set spreadsheet.

Thanks for posting this very meaningful info regarding the bl 460 cards; and, i hope we can further this discussion.

matched "twins".

[linked image][linked image]


these 23 subjects have been confirmed with both the broad leaf 460 and red hindu backs......

Baker
m. Brown (chicago
cobb (red portrait)
davis (a's)
doolan (bat)
downey (bat)
elberfeld (washington-fielding)
evers (bat-yellow sky)
griffith (bat)
johnson (pitching)
joss (pitching)
kleinow (boston)
konetchy (glove low)
murphy (bat)
o'leary (hands on knees)
rucker (throwing)
seymour (throwing
snodgrass (catching)
stahl (glove)
street (catching)
sweeney (fielding)
willis (throwing)
cy young (glove)


the following 350/460 subjects have been confirmed with the red hindu back, but not yet with the broad leaf 460 back:

Chance (portrait-yellow)
chase (portrait-blue)
chase (dark cap)
donlin (bat)
doyle (bat)
magee (bat)

i would appreciate it, if any one on this forum can confirm any of the above three t206's with a broad leaf 460 back.


Conversely......
The following 350/460 subjects have been confirmed with the broad leaf 460 back, but not yet with the red hindu back:

Dougherty (arm in air)
mathewson (dark cap)
mcintyre (brooklyn & chicago)
reulbach (no glove)

i would appreciate it, if any one on this forum can confirm any of the above four t206's with a red hindu back.


Note....regarding red hindu cards......

Unfortunately, in the 1990's, there were some unscrupulous (but very talented) scam "artists" who bought up many red hindu common cards.
They modified these cards to create re-fronted star cards, which were so authentic that they fooled the graders at psa and sgc.

Fortunately, these fake cards did not fool the t206 experts. As, the scammers were not smart enough to know the legitimate t206 front/back
combos on such cards as the various cobb's, matty's, etc. Therefore, most of these t206 fakes were detected.

But the bad news is....that we will never really know how many red hindu cards were lost in this process.

All of the confirmed brown lenox subjects are also ab 460 subjects so i was
thinking it might be possible that some(or all) of the sheets used for the
ab 460's were also used for the brown lenox.

While the brown lenox is an extremely rare back (22 different subjects confirmed so far) it seems odd that none of the possible 34 non ab 460
subjects has been confirmed with a brown lenox. So could it be that not all black lenox subjects are possible with brown lenox and only ab 460 subjects are?

we do know that some of the sheets used to print the ab 460 backs were also used to print the uzit backs.

But it remains to be seen if this is also true for the ab 460 cards and the brown lenox cards, since (to date)
there are only 22 examples of the brown lenox cards.

Furthermore, it is quite puzzling that 4 subjects (lajoie, overall, pfeister, wagner) of these 22 brown lenox
cards have yet to be confirmed with black lenox backs ? ? ? ?


Incidentally, there are 35 subjects that are ab 460 no-prints (not 34).

The latter t-brand back was printed using brown ink.

I contend that the t206 brown lenox cards are simply the result an alc printer who had just completed a press run of t80 cards with cairo monopol backs, then failed to
switch to black ink in order to proceed with the following press run of t206 black lenox cards.

in time, if my theory proves to be true, we could discover as many as 75 subjects with brown lenox backs. My 75 number tracks with the piedmont 460 factory 42 number.
Which comprises of 63 subjects from the 350/460 series plus 12 subjects from the 460-only series.

Also, it has been suggested by pat r in another thread, that brown lenox cards track with the 350/460 series subjects in the american beauty 460 press run (28 subjects).

In any event, we all know how extremely rare these brown lenox cards are. And, this fact is consistent with the t80 cairo monopol cards, which are very difficult to find.
I don't think that this is just a mere coincidence.

Six subjects of the 23 brown lenox cards are from the 460-only series, and 17 subjects are from the 350/460 series......
group b




350/460 series subjects confirmed with brown lenox backs

bradley (bat)
burch (fielding)
cobb (bat off shoulder)
conroy (bat)
jordan (bat)
lajoie (bat)
lake (no ball)
leach (cap)
leifield (bat)
manning (pitching)
mcquillan (bat)
overall (yellow sky)
pfeister (throwing)
f. Smith (chicago & boston)
wagner (bat on right shoulder)
willetts
willis (bat)


the timeline of the printing of these group b subjects with american beauty 460, lenox, piedmont 460 factory #42, and uzit back was jan-feb 1911. This exact timeline
coincides with the printing of the t80 (military men) cards, which were printed with cairo monopol, lenox, old mill, tolstoi. And uzit backs.

t80 cards




so, here is my hypothesis....the printer at american lithographic inadvertently forgot to switch from the brown ink after press runs of t80 cairo monopol cards to black ink
prior to starting a press run of t206 lenox cards. Furthermore, my guess is he caught his mistake quickly, which would explain why very few brown lenox examples exist.
Instead of dis-carding these brown lenox cards, these mistakes were shipped along with the black lenox cards to factory #30. And, were inserted into lenox packs.




Regarding the 6 subjects from the 460-only series with brown lenox backs......they appear to be from the same group of 9 subjects which were printed with piedmont 460
factory #42 backs.

460-only series subjects confirmed with brown lenox backs

chase (trophy)
latham
marquard (pitching)
merkle (throwing)
schlei (portrait)
wiltse (portrait-cap)

i expect these 3 subjects will be found with brown lenox backs......

Schlei (batting)
schaefer (washington)
seymour (portrait)


would love to hear from some of you on this forum with your responses to this theory ?

In general, I agree with you, it's a "monster mess", as there are too many back variables to try and arrive
at some neat rhyme or reason from all this. My perspective, however, for this theory ignores the compli-
cations resulting from the various backs and is a 1st order approach with respect to the fronts. Which, by
the way, you can apply this thinking to an all-Piedmont set of 522 cards and the analysis should be the
same.

Do you agree, though, that with 144 Subjects in the 150/350 group....48 Southern Lgers....and 48 Subjects
in the 460-only Series, it is awful tempting to think T206 formatted their design around this factor of 48 ?

And, I say this because I still have strong feelings that the fronts were printed separately; and, at some
stage in the process were somehow appliqued onto pre-printed cardboard sheets with the various T-brands.
So, that's my rationale for approaching this strictly from a "front" perspective. Otherwise, it is mind-boggling.

I will grant you that "48" pops up a lot in T206. I'm just not sure anything about production can be surmised from that.

The 1st series, 2/3 (33 cards) of the 49 have the 1948 COPY-
RIGHT; and, 16 cards have the 1949 COPYRIGHT. The 2nd series
(scarce issue) approx. has the same breakdown between 1948 &
1949 COPYRIGHTs. Does this suggest that some cards were issued
in 1948, while others in 1949 ? HECK NO !
1st..It is ILLEGAL, & certainly ILLOGICAL to grant a COPYRIGHT
in advance.
2nd..I can clearly recall buying and trading many of the LEAF
BB cards early in 1949. In Hillside, NJ we only had the 1st
series cards. My original collection survived and I had over
100 of these cards. We kept buying them since we could not
figure how many completed a set (due to the skip-nos. cards)
3rd..Then, in the early '80s I acquired an uncut 49-card sheet
of 1948 LEAF Boxing Champs and an uncut 49-card sheet of
1949 LEAF BB cards (1st series).
This confirmed in my mind
that my recollection was accurate regarding this 1949 issue
4th..In researching into the players who were traded late in
1948 that are portrayed in this set, it becomes evident that
it is virtually impossible to have marketed this set in 1948
Finally, I was able to complete the 1949 LEAF set during the
1980's, starting with Leroy Paige. I acquired this card back
in 1982 from Rick Starks (Erie, PA dealer). He helped me with
almost all of the 2nd 49 cards, as nearby OHIO was the main
souce of them. My experience with the "scarce" LEAF cards is
that LEAF limited distribution of them to OHIO and MICHIGAN.

Hal, you have asked me essentially four questions, so here
are my answers:

1st....Yes, the 1949 Leaf BB set of 98 cards were printed on
two sheets configured in a 7 x 7 array = 49 cards each.

2nd....I have had only the first series uncut sheet and there
exists a mixture of 1948 & 1949 COPYRIGHTed cards on this
sheet
(the Copyright breakdown is 33 and 16, respectively)
I have never seen a 2nd series sheet; however, it can be
a safe assumption that it would contain a mixture of both
year's Copyrights, as the 1st sheet. Indeed, if you look
at the backs of the "so-called" SP cards, the breakdown of
two years' Copyrights is very similar.

If both players can be linked by a multi-column horizontal scratch that terminates in a side crop then i think algebra would give us the sheet width. Not a lot to work with here but i think there is scratch between "u" in subjects and "pi" in piedmont. Add in a few stray distinctive marks and someone might recognize it.

when you originally posted scans of this card i was looking at trying to
find a pd 150 subject with the mark i circled in black, it looks like it's
some kind of print mark.

I look forward to seeing any scratches, neighbors, two-namers, etc that you have. Another piece in the sheet-size puzzle...

stone is a match for doyle and i think the sheet with stone on it would
have been the one that white was on because doyle is a 150 only subject
and white isn't, so we should eventually find a stone with the same partial
scratch that doyle and the upside down white have.


here's the sheet i'm referring to if you click on the link you can magnify it
and get a better look. We are still working on this sheet but i think the
cobb/tinker belongs on the right (back of sheet) not the left.

There are a few spots where the second subject with a matching scratch haven't been found yet and if/when a white scratch is found it will probably be a match to either pattee, reulbach or burch.

At the time i searched and couldn't find a doyle or stone (doyle and

flaw that is on the smaller portion of the second back on the upside down
white.

This doyle that sold on ebay recently has that mark.

so far doc white hasn't been found with a plate scratch but if
one is eventually found it should allow us to figure out the exact
size of this plate scratch sheet based off the upside down white.


If the link works it should be a scan of that sheet that can be enlarged.
