One of the goals I set earlier in the year involved adding some New York Giants T206 cards to my collection. My goal was to attempt to add one per month for the year to add to my small collection. I had previously shared January, February and March pick ups and while I am a little behind in my goal, I still have a nice card from April to share.
I was able to pick up my first T206 Hall of Famer, Giants pitcher Rube Marquard:
The back of the card gives some evidence to the poor rating with much more visible creases and some sort of ink symbols on near the top. Now that this card is posted and logged, it is time to do some bargain shopping for my T206 cards. I am still shocked that after feeling even one of these was out of reach a year or two ago, I now have 9 in my collection!
