Great job Tim! I'm trying to do the same thing with Dode Paskert and finding it extremely difficult to come up with the non Piedmont and SC backs (although I was lucky enough to pick up the Broadleaf first). How long did it take you to complete? I'm finding that having patience is the most difficult part of the task!!

Thanks everyone.

Pat-The last T206 was the Drum. I was surprised when I learned a fellow collector owned it and really happy we were able to make a deal. The last of the cards shown was the T213-1.

The Starr run took 4 years and 3 months to complete.

Default Starr backs run

Congrats Tim.. I just recently fished a much shorter but just as rewarding backs run on Ganley. Chris Browne did the grid for me also and I love those pictures. Gotta figure out what the next move is now..

I see there is no Cycle, is there still the potential of one showing up?

That Broadleaf does look familiar.

Thanks Doug. Please post that image again in this thread in case anyone missed it. Or anyone else that has a front/back run to share.

Here's another one I finished a while ago. Lindaman doesn't come with some of the tougher backs in the set, but several of the front/back combo's of him aren't easy to come by.

Lee-The Cycle is there. And that Broad Leaf is probably one of the best looking 2's in my collection. Thanks again.

Tim,

Congrats on a killer Starr run. It is sweet success threads like this that inspire me to tackle a player back run someday. Gotta get to 518/520 first. Keep up the great work on all things related to 206s!

Best,

Andy

I guess I should have my glasses on when I look at things these days. I thought it was odd there was no Cycle.

I was able at one time to complete Ewing and Brown, Chicago & Washington.
