Frank,

First of all I have no fixation with the T205 Matty Cycle. I reason I reply is because It is a card that I have first hand knowledge of this card and have not responded to the Wilhelm because I have little to no knowledge about the card but if the card is a one back only with no corrected version it falls into this same category that it belongs as a back variation and should not be listed.

The reason this variation got so much press is because of Lipset's auction with misinformation and the price received, whereas the Wilhelm card has not had such press.

As pointed in the earlier reply " I just can not see the justification for adding a card to the list just because a certain brands back variation has either misinformation or a typo."

Frank, your whole response to this thread has no rational if you can not answer the question I imposed. Just because an error has been made in the past does not mean it should continue in the future.

As far a the Demmitt, O'Hara to me there is justification in the fact that it seems PB was the first to print this card while with St. Louis and later traded to a new team and thus the rest made the proper team designation. I situation such as this does not apply to cards with typos that were not corrected. Plus there variations have been with the hobby for years and it just will not change.

As stated before, if people are willing to pay thousands of dollars for a card that was $100 a year ago because one longtime dealer overhyped an auction that is there right.

Frank,

Please explain your argument as to why this should be a stand out variations with no correction to the back on the Matty T205 Cycle and why every back variation should not be listed.

Lee

The Mathewson 37-1 was added to the 2010 SCD as a variation in the T205 set. As such, we added it to our Master Set listing. It will be designated 37-1 Record in the extended description on the third line of the label from here on out.

Thanks,

Brian

Thanks for the reply, Brian

I understand that the SCD listing gives it some credence. But no one still has answered my question as to justifying it's inclusions without 2 variations of the Cycle back.

I impose the question to anyone that feels the card needs to be included as a distinct variation.

Please explain your argument as to why this should be a stand out variations with no correction to the back on the Matty T205 Cycle and why every back variation should not be listed.

Why isn't the T205 Mathewson (Cycle, incorrect stats) listed on the SGC Registry? I have been reading old forums and most state that it really isn't an error/variation because all Cycle backs have that discrepancy. If that is the case, then why is the Wilhelm "suffered" listed on the master list as it seems to be found only with the Hassan back? Also, where would the Mathewson (cycle) card rate in difficulty compared with the top 5 difficult cards to obtain for this set?


Still looking for Wilhelm "suffered" low grade if anyone has one to sell.

If the Matty is included than all the different back variations should be included, know if a corrected version of the Matty card is found with a Cycle back than I agree.

Brian I would really like to hear the justification for adding the matty Cycle back as a variation without including the other back variations to the list.

As far as the the toughest list goes. if you are going to add the Matty Cycle you need to ass all the different players with DRUM backs, and other back variations that are tougher than Cycle.

I personally do not care if individual collectors want to bid against each other for a card if they have the proper information on the cards they are bidding on, but when Lew Lipsett runs an auction for a T205 Matty with a fountain of misinformation and it is brought to his a attention and he does nothing about it. I have a big problem with this. To me by adding the Matty Cycle back to the SGC list is only adding to this problem.

Just as a footnote, I have been buying steadily since Oct 2000 and have owned 3 different T205 Matty Cycle backs, I no longer own any of them, (I believe Scott owns the last one I had). I made out quite nicely on the resell of all of them.

I hope this is not a trend,

Lee



Just to let you know my t205 wilhelm suffered version has a cycle back and sgc graded 30. I can send you a pic if you like

lentel,

Congratulations on that acquisition. It would be nice to see that beauty. Do you know if Cycle has both versions? I meant to say in my initial post that Hassan doesn't have both versions of the card and Piedmont doesn't have both versions. That seemed to be the reason for initially not listing it as a variation since no other Cycle Mathewson had the correct stats on back.

I had my suspicions that there were different backs for the Wilhelm, but did not say anything because I did not have the required knowledge like Kyle.

Frank, It is great that you responded to Kyle, but why do you not bother to try and answer my question? I am have imposed the question frequently and there seems to be no one that wants to answer it.

I think we all want continuity in the listings and the matty does not fall into that category until a corrected version or another error with a different ad shows up.

Lee,

The Matty is in the same situation with Wilhelm. Currently Wilhelm "suffe ed" is found with only Piedmont backs. It is not found on a Hassan back. That card was deemed a variation. I'm not sure if it is found on the cycle back, that was why I inquired since only one Cycle Wilhelm has been graded by SGC. I'm assuming it is the "suffered" version.

Let me ask you a question. Since all T205 Mathewson's (except cycle) have the backs that say 37-11, what would you call the one that has a 37-1 record? To me, that meets the definition as being a variation as it is different from all other Mathewsons. Some how, it has to be identified as being different.

As I have stated in almost all my responses. I have no problem with the card being a variation if a corrected version is found with a Cycle back or another ad back is found with the 37-1. Until than it is no different than a Matty with a Drum, American Beauty, Hassan, or Piedmont backs they are all variations of the matty so why aren't they listed as such?

How would it be the same as a Matty with a Hassan back? If all Drum, American Beaut, Hassan or Piedmont backs say 37-11 and the Cycle says 37-1? That's where I don't understand. It can't be the same as those, because it is different. You don't need to have a cycle that says 37-11 to see that the 37-1 is different from all other brands.

Frank, I don't know how to explain it any better. Each T205 has a different ad back are technically a variations. They are not listed as such. If another ad back is exposed with the 37-1 or a corrected version with the 37-11 back shows up then it becomes a unique variation. Until than it is no different then a T205 matty with a Cycle or if you want to call it 37-1 card, same card different name. If you don't get it Frank that is fine and you are welcome to think what you like.

Happy Holidays,

Lee
