Trade With Classic Card Collector: My First T206, and It's A Brooklyn Dodger!

Well, a Superba, technically. I completed my first trade with Brian of Classic Card Collector, and boy is it ever a doozy. I stumbled upon Brian's blog, and did so at the right time, because he had posted one of his many T206s. After looking through some of his posts, I saw that he had a few doubles, and inquired as to the availability of any of them. After a few e-mails back and forth, we had ourselves a deal, with Brian receiving everything you see here and yours truly finding the below beautiful piece of vintage goodness in his mailbox:


Finally! Every collector should own a T206. I've wanted one forever, but it was never a major priority, and I never had the heart to lay down the dough for one. Thankfully, Brian was kind enough to work with me on a deal and part with one, which is now one of the centerpieces of my vintage collection.


I don't know much about Kaiser Wilhelm, but what I do know comes from this post on the man from Ernest over at Blue Heaven. I also don't really know anything about the T206 set, so beyond seeing it's got a Piedmont back, I can't delve into what that means. Anyhoo, you should all go and check out Brian's blog and his fascinating progress on the T206 set he's working on, and give his blog a follow. Who knows, you might find yourself embroiled in trade talks of your own.

Thanks for the phenomenal trade Brian, and welcome to the card blogging community!

  5. Glad to see you are enjoying the Wilhelm. There really is nothing like your first T206. The key is to make sure they don't become a gateway to bigger things like a T206 Dodger team set or even worse, the 518 card version of the Monster!

  6. Haha, I don't think I'd ever even want to attempt that Monster!

    A team set, way down the road, would be really fun though.

    And thanks again!
