That's why they call it the monster Smile
Wayne, do you need Tom Needham?

Interested in EX-MT or better pre-'56 Cardinals, '53 Bowman Color & '74-'78 Topps.

that is one helluva collection right there. nicely done! I'm hoping to get my first one by way of trade soon if all goes well.

Looking to complete the 2013 Archives Mets fan favorite Au's (Just need Ron Darling) and 2014 Topps Gypsy Queen set mini base + SPs. Also working on 2015 Topps Chrome and updates. Please note that if you have less than 15 trades, I ask that you send first.

Envious and jealous.
This is awesome!
How did you go about getting so many? Do you frequent card shows a lot?

No I never atteneded a card show and I have been collecting for 25 years non stop.
In 2003 I bought a collection sight unseen and it the collection were 4 huge boxes that stood 3.5 feet tall an and aboout 2x2 feet length and width. I was away from home and my wife called and told be she cannot use the front door. I told her to move the boxes out of the way and she said yea right they are heavy. ( At the time I didnt know the size of the boxes) So 7 days later I get home and I was shocked. I moved the boxes and put one by the dining room table anxius to see what was it it. The first box had the T-206 Tris Speaker booked at the time 300.00, the next box I opened had the Goudey Sports kings Babe Ruth 1933, sitting right on top, 3 third box had a 1914 Genereal Baking Honus Wagner at the time it booked 600.00 and the 4rth box had Miller Huggins T-206 booked 100.00. I paid 500 dollars for the collection and another 526.00 to have it shipped from my moms house to my house. All together I had over 300 T-206s in the collection. I put the boxes in the closet and called the Cops in the area and my mom helped. After 6 months with no word I called the police in that area and surrounding areas and no-one claimed they were stolen and the police told me since 6 months has passed they are mine. The other I had my LCS pick up the ones I needed and traded for a few of them. I even took these to my LCS and he said they were 100% authentic and he taught me how to locate fakes and what to watch out for. I got a Chief Bender and I had suspecions about it and sent it to Beckett and they graded it It was very clean and crisp card with sharp corners but someone back in the day put a thumb tack right above his head so it graded a 1/ Probably the best graded 1 in existance.

The collection came with 2 complete sets of 1986 Topps football with 2 great looking Rice rookies. I sold one set and kept one set for myself.

Since that time I have traded off a bunch of the stuff and sold a bunch off stuff. The stuff I sold I made 9,000.00 for they were duplicates or complete sets.

I also found a T-206 Fred Nodgrass but something just doesnt seem right about the card. For 10 years now I am still trying to decide to sent to SGC for authentication for Snodgrss should have a red background but the one I have is orange. I havent seen another one like it. (Half of the S is broken off)

Nice story on how it all started. Nice to look at this thread again, and appreciate those T-206. That collection is the main reason I started picking those white tobacco cards 3 years ago.
