What are you hunting for these days?

Post by fisherboy7 on Mon May 17, 2010 1:23 pm

So what's topping your wantlist these days?

For me:

High Priority: Scarce 19th century cards - picked up one last year (N321 SF Hess Cali) would love to add another of the same ilk before this year is through. Anyone have a Kbat Harry Wright they're itching to get rid of?

Medium/Low Priority: T213 Coupons - have a modest start to the type 2 set going, but a few big hofers out of the way already. Would also like to snag a T208 if I can get a piece of the recent hoard for a decent price.

There are many more wants, but these are the ones that come to mind first. How about you?

Hey Ben,

Looking for lots of non-sports issues that I collect, but having little luck.

On the baseball side, trying to fill in commons for M116, T204, and E90 and worry about some of the big names a bit later! insane

Also hoping to finish my T207 set some time within the next couple of years.

One more thing. Slowly (very slowly) upgrading some cards from my T206 set that are ugly looking.

Have to include a D322 Dreyfuss too. Bad timing with him going into the HOF when it's the last card I need for the set.

Happy Hunting everyone!

Rob

Unfortunately nothing at all right now. But I hope to pick back up in a year or so.

Nevermind

OK...so I lied. T216's. Wasn't expecting to pick up any more, but I got a HOFer at a heck of a price that I couldn't pass up.

So....I'm collecting T216's, if the price is right.

Probably for me right now:

An E90-1 Speaker for my Red Sox collection, and

An E92 Dockman Matty for my Dockman set.

Just getting back up to speed with cards, but I will be on the look out for pre war hof type cards. Particularly interested in a D359 Baker :-)

I still have that card! Yes, the one you sold me years ago.

Glad to hear you're getting back into collecting - welcome to the forum!

Glad to be back!

I'd like to add a nice SGC 50 T206 Johnson Portrait or Cy Young portrait sometime in the near future.
It takes somewhat of a perfect storm to find the right card when I have enough money saved.

I'm looking for an Old Mill cabinet. Too bad Ben still doesn't have his.

T4's are the Obak cabinets. Also scarce, but not crazy tough like the Old Mill cabinets (H801-7's). The poses on H801-7's are exact matches as their T210 counterparts. Any reason behind that strange ACC classification for the OM cabs? Wish I had mine back.

Here's a scan of one I pulled off the web (not my old one):

Never understood that designation either since H is clothing stores and Burdick knew that Old Mill was a tobacco.

The only t4's I have seen for sale were the Lipset ones, then 4 in a 19th Century Auction. Any others for sale since then have been recycled from those 2 auctions. The one(s) in the recent major auction I believe have been from JC's collection.
