Default Good looking sets when found in poor/fair condition

I have a number of collecting projects underway and I always like to set a condition goal when I begin a new project, it just happens that all of my projects have a condition goal of at least VG, some of my projects the condition goal is higher. This got me wondering, what set has the greatest eye appeal when examples are found in the poor-fair range with the caveat that the whole card must still be intact. IMO I have found that CJs seem to look great even in these low conditions. Caramel/candy stains that often seem to lower the condition for many, for me seem to almost enhance the card at times for CJs.

Lots of great looking P/F Exhibits, many were stuck into scrapbooks but being blank back/PC back they can still look awesome. Here are two of my favorites with back damage-

Though not widely collected, R306 Butter Creams look nice in off-condition.
