An offer to discuss ungraded T206 cards

An offer to discuss ungraded T206 cards
I have been collecting for years; however, just recently got into acquiring cards from the T206 set. While I imagine there are relatively few to be had through trading on this site, I was wondering who else here collects them.

Specifically, I was hoping to enter into a discussion regarding the potential pitfalls involved with the purchase of ungraded specimens. To date, I have only bought seven graded copies; however, would like to begin picking them up on a regular basis (commons, at the very least) when I see them in VG through EX condition - and - not shy away from copies which have not been, "slabbed."

From my personal experience with vintage material (1952 - 1973 Topps thus far,) trimmed or otherwise altered cards are offered for sale more than once in a while. From what I have gleaned regarding T206, this unfortunate occurrence appears to be quite a bit more prevalent. So, to help point this thread in a meaningful direction, I pose the following question:

What advice would you give to a relative newcomer to tobacco cards that he might be able to relate to post-war material?

I would greatly appreciate your insight.

Best Regards,
