Great looking site. My only gripe would be the inclusion of the the Cobb/Cobb card. I know it's standard hobby blah blah blah, but I hope they will at least have an in depth article on the card and explain why it should not belong in the t206 checklist.

Agreed. Great looking site and a great resource.

I actually thought they did a decent job of explaining why the Cobb/Cobb was included in the footnote on this site.
http://t206resource.com/Back%20Rankings%20List.html

Similarly, they included the T213s in the scarcity order list -purely for a reference of their relative scarcity, but did not number them as part of the set... because Burdick didn't. Perfect way of handling both the Coupon and the Cobb back, IMO. Everybody can make their own judgments on what they want to consider, but the resource is there - using Burdick's classification as the baseline. To classify either as something other than Burdick did would require much more justification and would be even more controversial. Regardless of your viewpoint for or against inclusion, it is awesome that Tim, Jim, and Brian decided to share this with the hobby!

Lee - Thank you for starting the thread.

Jay - I understand your gripe and I think Brian explained our position about as good as I could. The Cobb/Cobb and T213-2 cards are extremely controversial and probably always will be. Whether you include them or exclude them, somebody is going to be upset. In time there will be at least one article for each of those backs

Brian - Thanks for your post.

I didn't dig through the site much. Just did a quick glance but the explanation is good. I didn't see it when I first looked. Very nice job by everyone involved.

great site, should be THE place for everything t206s with who the owners are and the impressive list of contributors...long overdue to bring traffic away from that other scammer's site.

Good looking site...I agree re. the T213-I inclusion and the Cobb back...but explanations have satisfied me.

It WILL be nice to have a place for all of the T206 FREAKS to hang out and bond!

1 comment I have...and maybe I didn't search through the site enough...but...it'd be really nice to have any significant printing variations that commonly occur presented in the gallery...for example the ritchey(ritchie) w/dove/without and where/when this tends to occur.

Peter - We have several other galleries planned, it's just going to take a little time to get them up and going. Thanks for the suggestion.

Fiend - Love the picture with Nutzy.
