Default Epdgs

I need to update the collage and find an alternative to photobucket.....Always found EPDGs to be interesting. Sitting on 222 unique ones at this point.

To me a card is a 90/10 or 50/50.

A red Cobb I care 90% about the front. A Maddox EPDG I care 90% about the back.

But then there's a few that split like a Magee portrait Hindu. I love the front and the back about the same.....they are both important.

Hey Jeff, how many more EPDGs do you need for the complete set?

I was incorrect that I have 221, not 222. The known list according to Ted and the t206resource is 284 but I think it's actually 281. Pastorius, Hunky Shaw, and Ed Willetts no "S" are in their list but there are no records of one being sold or graded.

I don't think this is like a Drum or Uzit situation where an unknown one will show up, I just don't think they exist.

So I think I need 60 to get there but I've already surpassed my goal of 200. Not sure I will complete or not.

Hey Jeff, I say go for a complete set. Looks like you picked up 3 or 4 more since your last post about the set. I've gotten 3 more since then also. I'm now at an even 100 EPDG's. Took a while to get the first 100. Hopefully the second 100 is a bit quicker. Good luck on your EPDG journey and I look forward to when we are both within single digits of a complete subset.

All the big ones! Haha....trying to stick to a budget, so focus has been on commons for the most part. If I see a HOFer at a good price or in a lot, that's a bonus.

For me I am looking to have 1 of each cigarette/cigar brand as a type collection. I don't care who is on the front of the card, the factory #/variation, color of the ad or what sport/non sport set it is from.

If we are talking T206s I have 6 different cigarette brand backs so far.

I've wondered about the Shaw also. I'd love to see one.

Exactly! Also, I really like the advertising on cards. Frequently, the same player image was used for several pre-War sets, making the backs as or more interesting than the fronts. For example, this Sam Rice image was used for several sets, but many of the backs it can be found with are scarce:
