Like many of you, I've enjoyed reuniting or seeing cards that once belonged with the same collector. Jeff snagged a lot, some of which were formerly glued on the reverse of a picture of "The Fancy Man". There is a thread somewhere on this. I was lucky to get the 4 cards that made up the bust of The Fancy Man who was later found to be Napoleon III. Turns out Brian's beater green Cobb was once part of the same collection as well.

I would guess the collector that figured Napoleon would make a suitable display for their t206's would find it ironic that I found his t206 display a great way to display Nap III.

Your achievement encourages me to keep going and finish the quest.

Thank you,

Sounds like it will be a pretty special day when you complete your set. Make sure it has a few beaters in it!

As the proud owner of a 520 "set" I salute you! Wonderful accomplishment that I know probably wasn't possible without the help of many folks. It certainly wasn't for me.

Best wishes

Scott

Hmm...I dunno...that Lajoie in the first photo looks suspiciously nice. You sure that's one of yours? Seriously though, congrats on the accomplishment! 520 in any condition is a big deal and, as a fellow beater connoisseur, I enjoy looking at a set like this just as much, if not more, than a high grade collection. Thanks for all the nice deals we did along the way. I'm glad that I was able to be a small part of your journey!

Thanks, Marc! You're right about that Lajoie but he's not going anywhere. Not sure if it was technically a National show or not (Chicago mid-late 90's at the then rosemont convention center) but that Lajoie was the 3rd and last t206 I would buy until 20+ years later.
