For instance, certain teams from a set, portraits from a set, etc.

Myself - I am currently working on a few subsets of the Monster - Hindu SL'ers, Cubs with rare backs and a 350/460 Series with only Cycles and American Beauties. For me, this is much easier than collecting entire sets, as I lose patience rather quickly. In fact, I have never completed a set. I have bought a few complete sets, but could not even complete a Dockman set - I quit when I had 32 of the 40 cards (and had the expensive ones and tough ones out of the way). Rolling Eyes drool

I have always thought the Brown's Champs subset of the Old Judge set as a nice subset to complete as well. Too bad I didn't start that one a few years back when they were reasonably priced.

My most common subsets are all of the (typically color, but sometimes pose - such as OJs) variations of a single player in a card set. Sort of a miniature master set. These usually are quite striking, imo, and are a good type representation. Sometimes there are more than a dozen variations of a single card.
I have a half dozen or more of these underway right now.

Out of the Monster I've collected the four Jersey City players (real tough I know) and I have finally acquired the last of the six horizontal cards in the set. Actually, I'm working on trying to get all of the cards ever issued for Jersey City players, so I guess you could say I'm working a lot of different subsets: C46, N172, N173, T205, T201....

just subsets of my player set. I'll put together the Delong set and a basic set of t205s with no variations. I've got a ton of 40 Play Ball and may pursue that set minus that the "retro" cards of Jackson, Wagner, Johnson, etc. I'd love to chase the m101-4/5 set, but I doubt I'll ever be able to afford a Ruth.

That is a tuff one to beat Mark.
Actually, it may not be beatable.
Six very high priced and uniquely attractive cards = just right.

Do you know where each is now?

I know 2 collectors that have completed the 6 Square Frame set and there may be a private collector with unlimited funds that has a set. I was told there were approx. 50-60 Square Frames out there but who knows. Of course i have the funds now to buy 1 or maybe 2 and there are none for sale Crying or Very sad

Oh, 50 - 60 and six different cards, then condition counts.
Which one is rarest?
How many of these have changed hands over the past ten years?

I have never really been a set collector. This is the best subset that I have ever been lucky enough to put together:

in total counting all different players i was told that #. I would believe that John Anderson is the rarest since it was found in the 1990's and was not known to exist.

I would think a small % has changed hands since it is so tough to locate in any condition. Scott B. had all 6 for sale a few years back for around $15,000, he told me himself that it was one of the dumbest things he has ever done. They are worth 5X that now.

Rman - I had forgotten how nice all those different colored Cobbs look together! I was missing the purple however when I had my "hoard" back in the day. The purple one really sets the others off - that is an amazing Cobb collection to say the least - also, one of my favorite poses of Cobb! righton

I collect a few subsets in the Monster also-the Giants with the cap and sweater and the Baltimore team.

WOW those 6 Cobbs together are amazing!
