Wow!

This Thread has really taken off.

The Allen & Ginters seem to always have great subject matters and have covered many different subjects.

Ron

Those are just friggin beautiful cards you posted!

That Great Americans set is just eye popping with the bold bright colors and the spectacular graphics on them.

How many cards in the Great Americans set?

Surprisingly the 1934 Garbaty set is not to difficult to find cards for as the were highly prized and collected as well as preserved by many collectors at the time.

I was wondering how difficult the Great Americans set is to obtain those kind of high grade examples, as well as the cost basis?

The set includes 50 cards but there is one variation, Beecher facing right and left. The facing left card is pretty rare, and I have not seen another in any registry sets either PSA or SGC.

High grade, as expected, are hard to find. My set ranges SGC 40 and up. I am able to upgrade maybe one or two cards a year. Like most non-sport cards, values are way cheaper than baseball. High grade examples will sell for a few hundred with Lincoln, Washington and a few other "stars" selling two to three times more. SGC 50 and lower cards are still pretty cheap, and show up on ebay occasionally.

High grade PSA examples usually will not cross to SGC because these cards often have minor paper loss that will not get by SGC.

The card backs have only a checklist, with no biographical info, but if you like history, you can enjoy researching the ones you do not know.

I have included a link to my set.

That Great American set is sweet. The gold sure stands out doesn't it?

I'm posting a photo of a card from my favorite set: 1956 Quaker Pack-O-Ten Braves Of Indian Nations. I know this set isn't as old as the others we've seen here, but the color on these and the pictures themselves are fantastic. Hope you like it.
