The Newest Addition to My T206 Collection

My T206 collection added another member this month with this awesome Mike Donlin card:

Donlin has 3 different cards in the set, this one is considered the Fielding pose.  The other two are Seated and With Bat.  I really like the picture on this card, it just takes me back to the early 20th century.  I picked this up for $25 delivered on the bay and I a pretty happy with it.  The card fits right in my condition wheelhouse, I am looking primarily for no paper loss, no creases that virtually destroy the card and cards that just look nice in person.  As you can see in the scan, there are a few creases in this card but the card looks pretty nice regardless.  Additionally the creases look more prominent in this scan so I am really happy.

My T206 collection is up to 5 cards and I hit my January goal of adding a card per month.  Hopefully February will also present a nice card at the right price.


  1. Congrats! Donlin was known as "Turkey Mike" in his day, which remains one of my favorite nicknames in baseball history.

  2. I have the seated Donlin, it was my first T206 card. Congrats.
