Default Just another guy putting together a T205 set one card at a time...

So I've got a few sets going at the same time - Diamond Stars, 51' Bowman, 54' Topps and 56' Topps - but going to focus my efforts on T205 for the time being...so far, here's my progress to date:



- 41/215
- 7 HofF (Brown, Jennings, Marquard, Mathewson, Speaker, Wallace w/ Cap & Wheat)

- all PSA 3 or SGC 40 except Chase - Both Ears (PSA 4) & Wheat (SGC 50)



My latest pick ups below...

Very nice. You are some of my competition ...

..and let's all please be careful when uploading pics to our forum from any outside hosting service. If they are 3x the size of your screen, they need to be made smaller before posting. These were resized from the tapatalk download... thanks to all....

Thanks Leon! I'm hoping to spend about $30-35 per common, but that is proving to be somewhat difficult...am I being realistic?

Great cards btw! I'm at about 80/2?? myself.

Default Love it.

I'm going for the Piedmont Factory 42 set. It's been more difficult than I expected. I just picked up these 2.
