Default C52 set - the Canadian T218s

We've had a few threads of late about the T218 set, but I wanted to start one on the Canadian C52 Imperial Tobacco set.

All of the cards in this set are also in the T218 set, though the C52's do have numbers 1-100 on the back. Some of the numbers are duplicated though; this is the list we developed in a previous thread:

1 Jack Johnson BOX
2 James Jefferies BOX
3a Clarence B. Tippett TRK
3b Tommy Murphy BOX
4a James P. Sullivan TRK
4b Dick Hyland BOX
5a Walter Bursch TRK
5b Ad Wolgast BOX
6a Budd Goodwin TRK
6b Unk Russell BOX
7a Frank Riley TRK
7b Battling Nelson BOX
8a H.E. Gissing TRK
8b Packy McFarland BOX
9 James Crowley TRK
10 S.P. Gilles TRK
11 Andrew Glarner TRK
12 Battling Hurley BOX
13 Melvin W. Sheppard (side face view) TRK
14 Lou Manley TRK
15 Ray C. Ewry TRK
16 Frank C. Irons TRK
17 Jim Stewart BOX
18 Robert Cloughen TRK
19 W.C. Robbins TRK
20 Thomas O'Callaghan TRK
21 Harry Hillman TRK
22 Martin Sheridan TRK
23 C.M. Daniels (seated) TRK
24 Johhny Coulon BOX
25 Platt Adams TRK
26a Geo. J. Obermeyer TRK
26b Harry Porter TRK
27 Tom Collins TRK
28 Lawson Robertson TRK
29 Paul Pilgrim TRK
30 Jack "Twin" Sullivan BOX
31 Jack Eller TRK
32 John Flanagan (full lgth) TRK
33a Emilo Lunghi TRK
33b M.J. McGrath TRK
34 Jem Driscoll BOX
35 Eddie Walsh BOX
36 Richard Frizelle TRK
37 Chas. J. Bacon Jr. TRK
38 Dan Ahearne TRK
39 Owen Moran BOX
40 Willie Lewis BOX
41 Billy West BOX
42 Johnny Marto BOX
43 Jimmy Gardiner BOX
44 Harry Lewis BOX
45 Stanley Ketchell BOX
46 Phil McGovern BOX
47 Walter Lee TRK
48 Abe Attell BOX
49 Sailor Burke BOX
50a Bert Keyes BOX
50b Jimmy Walsh BOX
51 Dave Deshler BOX
52 Fred Welsh BOX
53 Matty Baldwin BOX
54 Gusta Ljungstrom TRK
55 Johnny Hayes TRK
56 Ralph Johnstone AVI
57 J.B.Moisant AVI
58 Arch Hoxey AVI
59 Chas. K. Hamilton AVI
60 Fred Herreshoff GOLF
61 Alex Smith GOLF
62 Findlay Douglas GOLF
63 Gil Nicholls GOLF
64 Jerome Keogh
65 Charles Eyton BOX
66 Al Delmaont BOX
67 Patsey Kline BOX
68 Frankie Conley BOX
69 Frank Klaus BOX
70 Tommy O'Toole BOX
71 Johnny Summers (sitting) BOX
72 Johnny Summers (standing) BOX
73 Thure Johansson TRK
74 Abel Kiviat TRK
75 E.J. Sweeney TRK
76 Percy Sellen TRK
77 J. J. McEntee TRK
78 Hans Holmer TRK
79 Edward P Weston TRK
80 Fred Meadows TRK
81 John Daly (port) POOL
82 Charles Weston POOL
83 Willie Hoppe (portrait) POOL
84 George Sutton (F) POOL
85 George Low
86 Jack Hobens
87 James Rector TRK
88 Harry Cline POOL
89 Willie Hoppe (playing)
90 Thomas Hueston POOL
91 Alfred de Oro POOL
92 George Sutton (Full) POOL
93 Ora Morningstar (F) POOL
94 Albert Cutler (F) POOL
95 Albert Cutler (port) POOL
96 William Heins BOWL
97 Calvin Demarest POOL
98 Alex Dunbar BOWL
99 Glenn Riddell BOWL
100 R. Johns (F) BOWL

Does anyone have others not on this list, maybe other duplicate numbers, so that the whole 153 card T218 set is represented in the C52 set?

The numbers really surprise me - just from PSA pop reports, 6,394 T218s have been graded, but only 78 C52s. Does this mean they just haven't been graded, or are these 80x scarcer??

I'd love to hear from others who are interested in the C52 cards - is anyone else working on the set? I'm missing the following (known) numbers, so if anyone could help me with any of these, please let me know!

4b Dick Hyland BOX
5b Ad Wolgast BOX
6a Budd Goodwin TRK
8b Packy McFarland BOX
12 Battling Hurley BOX
23 C.M. Daniels (seated) TRK
50a Bert Keyes BOX
50b Jimmy Walsh BOX

And I have extras of these three as trade bait for anything on the above list:
46 Phil McGovern BOX
58 Arch Hoxey AVI
84 George Sutton (F) POOL

Thanks!

Cool

I'm glad I pulled my C52's out. I just found a Johnny Marto PSA 3 I didn't know I had and a missed typed #42 for Jimmy Gardner.

I have seventeen graded and raw cards. They don't come up often.

I have two raw Owen Moran's I would trade for cards I need!

I had a request to see the Attell card, so here is a scan. It's pretty smashed and probably one of the worst-conditioned cards in my near set, but it's the only Attell I've come across so far!

RBrown -
Are you saying that you have a C52 Jimmy Gardner that is number 42? I'd love to see that. I'm not sure we've ever seen any strange variations in this set. I've seen it with the normal #43 on it.

Scott - It wouldn't surprise me to find that the C52s are 80x - 100x more scarce than the regular T218s. They are really tough to come by. We didn't even have half of the checklist just a year ago. There are probably still a few that we don't know about. My spreadsheet of T218/C52 front/back combos is pretty much done if you want another copy. (If you get it, you'll see that I have 3 of the C52 cards that you're looking for - they could probably be pried away from me ....)

Default Abe Attell

In reply to a request made by a member (as honest pictures as possible)

update:
The person eventually interested wrote me this:
"Thank you for posting the pic, the card is very comparable to the one I have so not much of an upgrade for me so I will pass on this one, I have no doubt somebody will snatch it up soon, again thank you and good luck!"
