    A 1912 T207 Frank Chance was a bucket list vintage card for me. A super affordable one popped up on eBay today, less than half the price I wanted to pay for one. Has a funky miscut top border, and would probably only grade authentic, but was perfect for what I wanted. Excited to add a vintage card of the "Peerless Leader" to my Cubs collection.

    Some people hate the brown t207s, but I'm certainly a fan. Despite the Trim, that Chance is sweet. Now you need the t202 with Tinker, Evers, and Chance on it.

    Growing up, I had this book, which really is a great book with descriptions of all the vintage sets, key players, and most unique cards in each set. It's a great read. I remember them being really down on the T207 set, saying it was one of the worst vintage sets and would never be popular with collectors. T207 is a polarizing set, either you love it or hate it. I love it. The brown backgrounds seem to fit a cigarette card, kinda smoky and tobacco-stained. I wanted a T207 Chance more than a T206 or T205 gold border.

    That's awesome. I'm fine with less popular vintage because I can acquire them cheaper, but you never know if something might gain popularity later.

    I got a PSA 5 of that card about 10 years ago, while it was still fairly affordable.

    I don't know. Evers "The Crab" was a little *****. I'd really love to add an 1887 Old Judge card next of one of Anson's teammates. Fred Pfeffer, or Ned Williamson maybe.

    I think I like the gray backs for this set, better. For 1959, I always liked the white backs better and remember loving the brown lettered high number cards from childhood!!!
