This thread is for T206 collectors. Your monster number is the number of unique cards you own out of 524 with the following rules:

240 points for Honus Wagner
80 points each for Plank, Doyle NY NATL & Magie
1 point for everyone else.

The highest monster number is therefore 1000.

Occasionally I receive inquiries from collectors who just can't stand the notoriety that comes with having a posted Monster Number. I do respect their "unwarranted" need for privacy though.

The goal of this thread was never to identify where all 2,834,216 cards reside, but going forward I will offer an "Anonymous" listing option. Only you will know who you are, as I will try to forget. Of course this option will require that your posting be done in private, via PM, with the doors closed.

If there is demand for this new service, it may be necessary to add a number, letter or punctuation to your listing. If possible, I will even offer an emoticon option such as "Anonymous ". Just let me know in private, if you are interested in this service. I'll be home tonight.

Condition and back variations are not factors in your basic monster number.
Depending on interest back monster numbers (i.e. Polar Bear Monster numbers) could be considered in the future.

If you have duplicates, they are considered 2nd sets. Each set you own has its own Monster number.

For example I currently have 555 total cards, including 36 duplicates and 1 triplicate.
I do not own any of the Big Four. Therefore, my monster numbers are 518 for Set 1, 36 for Set 2 and 1 for Set 3.

Let's just get started with your highest Monster Number only. I am also suggesting that you share scans of a few of your cards.





No prizes, but I will tabulate and post a listing of everyone's Monster Number here in the original post and update the list periodically forever or until the cows come home, whichever comes first.

All that's needed is a number with scans if you care to add them. The Honor system will apply and you need not worry about a visit from the
Monster Number Gestapo.

Guess my highest possible total would be 998, as there wouldn't be a Demmitt or O'Hara/St. Louis in my range of cards. Anything else would be possible.

Great topic. I've always thought about a points system based on how rare a card is or how rare the back is etc. A system full of multipliers. Endless possibilities. Cobb Green vs. Red, Polar Bear vs. Lenox, VG vs. EX. Bonus points for Wagner, Plank etc. SLers - OM vs. Piedmont. I wish I had the time to develop a program to do this - I once had the time... I've seen websites and spreadsheets that kinda do this.
Based on the OP's topic - I'm at about 480... Just a bunch of 1 pointers...

John, you should get that Plank put in a PSA holder - whoever currently owns the Wagner would probably pay good money for it as a companion piece with similar history.

Reg, the corners were rebuilt and a spot of blue to the left of Planks head was carefully painted in dot by dot by a restoration company. Scott different Plank than mine, that Plank is a Piedmont 150 one of the 3 or so known.

If I count extras I can add another 300+ cards. Here are some of the PSA examples in my set....I do this only bum Sloate out I know he was getting tired of T206's on the board.

John, I love the way you've paid such careful attention to color, registration and white borders. They all look great.

I had no idea a restorer had gotten hold of a T206 Plank. Personally, I have no problem at all with restoration - it's considered an improvement in almost every other collecting environment - it's just the ambiguous 'AUTH' that troubles me. Your Plank looks great. I was just messing around with the Plank comment - is there really a companion to the Gretzky Wagner that was done in the same timeframe?

Scott, thanks I have spent years cherry picking tossed back 6's for 4's in some cases doubt it will be noticed if and when I sell but it made a difference to me.

Yes there is in fact a sheet mate to our hobby's most famous trimmed card. One of the few cards I regret not pulling the trigger on in my life.

Noticed how Plank is AUTH/Altered and our hobby icon is a PSA 8 both came from the same sheet go figure...got to love this hobby.

Cheers,

John

I would like to reach 520 someday and my goal for the end of this year was 260. Picked up #260 last month after 4.5 years of working on the Monster.

So as of today, Set #1--260

As far as Set #2 or #3, it would take to long to figure that out since I have a lot of multiples of Cleveland players with different backs and I'm doing a back set along with my basic set. If I hadn't bought duplicates and certain backs of some players my number would be at 380.

Passion or Obsession........its a thin line.

Default 25 Monster Numbers so far

Range 680 to 0.

Zero should probably be dropped as a qualifying set, making a total of 24 so far.

Is there an existentialist out there to affirm my ruling on the zero set?

Will post the Top 20, when we get to 50 total numbers.

Thanks for your participation and scans.

Default With all these numbers being given, I just have to ask...

would you mind checking the backs of your Piedmonts, Old Mills and Hindu backed cards to see how many and who has a rubber stamp from Howe McCormick, 500 W. Main St., Gainesville, Fla? I know I've pestered/bothered/annoyed most of you previously, but this seems to be the largest gathering of T206 collectors on the board at one time in one spot, so thought I'd beat the dead horse again. If you're interested in selling/trading, please let me know. If not, I'd just like to know what exists out there. I keep a list of all the known examples out there, so I would still have something to pursue, and I've learned my lesson ... I'll keep any replies to myself.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Kwanza and Happy Festivus.

Ed

15 I just started this year and only collect Pirates, so my set will probably top out at 18. I have a few non-Pittsburg cards, but they are not part of my set. I will eventually have over 100 different Pittsburgers, but I'll still be at 18. I was able to pick up a few players with multiple backs thanks to the collectors here.

Yeah, and you're trying to sell it, so you only get credit for 1/2.

My set is in flux, but my keepers are a green Cobb, O'Hara St. Louis, Elberfeld Washington, ghost Schlei and Kleinow Boston. These were tough the first time around, so not letting them go this time.

Put me down for a '5'.

I note your inquiry regarding an existentialist affirming that zero should probably be dropped as a qualifying set. I'm sure you well know that the existentialist ideology is far from a monolithic perspective so there is really no univocal response to this issue. A Sartrean nihilist might well direct us that zero is as qualifying as any other since the true qualifier is what meaning occurs as being for itself in terms of intentionality rather than from being in itself in stasis. A Heideggerean might well say that zero should be dropped because meaning must arrive epiphenomenally and since there is no true phenomenon
with respect to zero other than our composition of an external linguistic verifier, then zero is dropped by its very nature. A Kierkegaardean existentialist would be open to zero's deserving qualifying status since meaning often arises out of nothing, en vacuo, and deserves status for its
inherent creative impulses. I hope this is helpful to you, Frank.
Many thanks for this extra facet to your T206 question---which although an aside---was quite
ingenious of you.
all the best,
barry

The bottom line or more appropriately the summation of your input leaves nearly 7 billion people hanging, not knowing whether they are proud owners of T206 sets (albeit with Monster Numbers of 0), or whether they should continue their impoverished lives oblivious to this privileged subset of humanity with Monster numbers greater than or equal to one.

If you're gonna go with a point system, why not use the PSA weight system? Having a Hall of Famer, or Southern Leaguer should easily count for more than having a common. Obviously the Wagner, Plank and Magie should count for a bit more than 10 points though..

The concept could get very complicated with Hall of Famers, Southern Leaguers, different backs and different grades, etc, etc, etc.

I wanted to keep it simple enough to get quick responses not requiring a calculator. I considered the PSA weighting system, but found it a bit to complicated for a quick answer and weighting Wagner a 10 just isn't fair.

My other goal was to have a maximum score of 1000, which has not yet been reported. The thread seems to be getting a good response and your input is appreciated.

Merry Christmas to all.

I wanted to keep it simple enough to get quick responses not requiring a calculator. I considered the PSA weighting system, but found it a bit to complicated for a quick answer and weighting Wagner a 10 just isn't fair.

My other goal was to have a maximum score of 1000, which has not yet been reported. The thread seems to be getting a good response and your input is appreciated.

Merry Christmas to all.

To keep it simple, everything should get a '1'. To go one additional level, you could have the three obvious tiers (O'Hara and Demmitt St. Louis are tier 3), and still keeping it simple, you could add a fourth tier of items such as Elberfeld/Washington, Kleinow/Boston, SL'ers with Old Mill backs, etc.

The above would be simple. Adding back multipliers would make it difficult for some board members to do the math.

In any event, your thread is fun, but if you really want to tabulate results, you need to make it more realistic.

Given that this card is already stuck with an 'AUTH-Altered' designation, wouldn't it be worth getting such a restoration company to re-paint the erased background area?

If it were my card, I think I would.

346 for me. Got one card (the Lundgren) nearly 20 years ago, but only started collecting the set 18 months ago. Kinda need to slow down the pace a bit this year...

Happy holidays,

My best and favorite.................. Picking the "worst" was a tad harder...

I am down to about 60 and hope to be complete less the Wagner and Doyle by the end of 2013 (for the second time)

I prefer a card with an erasure rather than to be ever "touched up" by anyone.....beaters don't bother me, but specific altercations do.....
