T206 Eye Appeal

  • May 04, 2012
  • Leighton Sheldon

Eye appeal. You hear the term bandied about with regard to vintage cards but when it comes to the T206 set, it may be the most important quality a card can have. Smaller cards, especially those now more than a century old, tend to show wear. We all know that the printing process of the era wasn’t perfect so you’ll often see miscut or badly off-center cards. That’s why we’re so excited about some of the T206 cards we’ve been offering—and those we have up on eBay right now. When it

1967 Topps Tom Seaver Rookie SGC 92

Offered here is a 1967 Topps #581 Tom Seaver Rookie HOF Mets SGC 92.  This is 1 of just 11 cards graded SGC 92, and there are only 10 examples graded higher.  This is a beautiful example of the Seaver rookie, receiving an 8.5 on a 10 point scale. Just shy of a 9, this card features a pack fresh appearance with razor sharp corners. It also exhibits a clean surface with impeccable centering on the back, with its only flaw having 62/38 centering on the front, instead of the required 60/40 centering for a Mint 9 grade. Seaver, nicknamed

1921 E121 American Caramel Ty Cobb SGC 40

The 1920’s may be regarded as the ‘Golden Age of Sport’ for the 20th Century, but they sure didn’t produce a heck of a lot of baseball cards.  While the first two decades of the century provided us so many great tobacco and caramel issues, the 1920’s are more of a bridge between the bygone tobacco era and the dawning of the gum era spawned by Goudey’s initial issues of the early 1930s. That is why we consider the American Caramel E121 Ty Cobb SGC 40 that we’re offering on eBay right now so special.  It’s one of just a handful of trading card

1948 Leaf #53 Charlie Conerly Rookie PSA 8 pop 1 (none higher)

  • March 28, 2012

Long before Phil Simms and Eli came to town and even before Y.A. Tittle, there was the man simply known as "Charlie." New York Giants football fans could count on Charlie Conerly at quarterback as he led the offense from 1948 through 1961. It was just after his NFL debut, in fact, that Leaf produced the first major post-War set of football cards. The Leaf issue is a popular and desirable set that is condition-sensitive in large part because of printing problems that plague many of the cards. Amongst the toughest cards is the 1948 Leaf Charlie Conerly Rookie from the

We Spring Forward With T206 Cards

  • March 09, 2012
  • Leighton Sheldon

The T206 white bordered cards are considered by many collectors to be the stairway to heaven of baseball cards. The cards didn’t quite get to the level of popularity that stairway did on the radio because of their short printing run. Over time the value of the T206s have multiplied, just like the number of times that you skip over stairway when it comes up on shuffle. The T206 cards were only printed and released for three years (1909-1911) and there weren’t a set number of cards that were produced, thus making some player cards more valuable than others. Another reason
