The lithographic representation of photographs makes the T206 set a colorful illustration of players from a bygone era. But, T206 cards acquire a special vitality when they capture a player’s signature on his card. A signed T206 card brings the holder back in time, not only to when the player took the field, but also to when he held that card and signed his name, giving the card an incomparable personal touch.

Thanks in large part to memorabilia collector Dan Bretta, I have made some tremendous strides putting back together the collection of Clarence “Doc” Steen, who may just be the first serious through-the-mail autograph seeker in baseball history. Over about a three-year period (1939-1941), Doc Steen amassed quite the collection of pre-war player autographs on Sporting News and Baseball Magazine supplements (M101-2s, M113s, and M114s), George Burke Photos, and other photographs. Click here or on the pic above to see the latest on my efforts to reconstitute Steen’s 80-year old collection.
