Default Subtle differences in the T206 set's 15 repeated designs

Posted By: Ted Zanidakis

American Lithographic Company in NYC designed the 522 cards in the T206 set by producing 507 different "gems"
of artwork. Two were captioned erroneously (Magie & Doyle Nat'l) so they are just "misfits" of the 507. Of the 15,
the first 11 repeated designs shown here are variations of the original ones issued in the the 150 Series. These
repeated designs (or "twins") have different background colors, uniform changes, or reflect a team change (and
some are slightly cropped from their 150 Series counterpart).

The first 6 subjects (of the 11) on display here are the SUPER PRINTS which are in the 350/460 Series and can
be found with as many as 24 different Tobacco brand backs representative of the 350/460 Series (except that
their American Beauty 350 back is the Frame version, and these 6 cards do not exist with American Beauty 460
backs).



....................150 Series.......................350 Series................460 Series





...................150 Series.......................350-only Series




...................150 Series.......................350 Series..................460 Series



................................................35 0-only Series..................460 Series



These St. Louis variations were printed only with POLAR BEAR backs.

Some of the repeated designs are identical or nearly so, like Kleinow and Elberfeld, but others have considerable cropping and color differences, such as Chase and M.Brown.

And one of the most interesting is the Cobb, which is identical except for the spacing of the serifs in the "D" on the jersey.

I guess Schulte front view with Chicago instead of Cubs would've been another one had it made the cut.

Fascinating,illuminative work as always, TRex.

The Matty faces look so different to me, compared to the rest of the crowd.
Any idea why? Or am I staring at it a bit too autohypnotically!!

best,

barry

nice work Ted...card talk...how unusual!!! The Cobb/Matty poses to me also look quite different from each other. It must be the eyes!

it is refreshing to actually discuss cards themselves, thanks ted.

they might have used 2 different artists on the chase & matty? the faces look so different in both. just a thought.

Every time I see those two Lundgren cards side by side it makes me scratch my head. He's the only player in the set pictured with both a major league team and a minor league team. Why him?
