yes...this is being discussed ad nauseum on the other board...it is absolutely ridiculous to me that Huggins and Scott has showcased this in their auction...TOTAL BS.

I won't deal with Huggins and Scott...not since their admitted internal shilling...and now this...they have no morals.

You re right about this being a pathetic move on the part of H&S. I would expect something like this on eBay, but not from an established AH.

I'm gonna see if I can get Mark Macrae to take out his Wags and let me touch other t206s with it. Then H&S could sell them as t206s that made actual contact with a Wags. We could even record it for provenance.

Hey, don't blame the set for the way people sell it!

I do agree, however, that selling a partial like this is pretty ridiculous.

another example of why H&S will always be a middling AH and never reach the big time like REA. they look like a bunch of hucksters looking to make a quick buck from some sucker.

When I sold/traded my T206 Hall of Famers last year, I vowed - never again!

However, after spending so much time in Jacksonville - I think I'll pick up nice examples of the two Jacksonville players so then when I have people over and I can refer to them.

Of course by announcing said intentions I've probably inflated the market on T206 Jacksonville!

You do know that T206s fit in standard-sized holders, right?

...and that Jacksonville isn't in NY?

...but least they are from the McGraw era!

Hey now, we're not all bad. But, then again, I only have 18 thus far. Maybe I need to own more before I become despicable. Razz

You're just envious that Tampa doesn't have as rich a baseball history as Jacksonville!

I like the new avatar, Bill...for some reason old Rollie bugged me!!!!!!

It's just the analysis paralysis of T206 that has really annoyed me the last few years...people scrutinizing every little detail...every stray printing mark...off centered backs...all increasing the value...I mean c'mon!

When you print millions and millions of something with the old printing presses there will be variations by nature of the process.

And a decidedly pain-in-the-butt T206 at that. I've had a heck of a time trying to score that Titus. Beckett's doesn't value it any higher than any other common. I'm not sure what's causing the jack on that card's value lately. T206ism, I guess. Maybe we are despicable!

A lot of people like the Titus card because he was the last major leaguer to have facial hair until the early 70s A's started sporting it.

This could happen with any issue but I do hear you, the popularity of the T206 issue causes people to do ridiculous things.

This was an abomination and thank goodness to John McDaniel for tal;king some sense into the Auction House to remove that joke.
