  • New T-206 site: Looking for feedback

    Hello Everybody,

    I am new to Sports Card Forum and as suggested in my welcome email posting in the meet and greet section.

    I have recently relaunched a site focusing on T206 cards located at:

    http://www.t-206.com.

    The site has two methods of looking for cards located at:
    http://www.t-206.com/search
    http://www.t-206.com/pdsearch

    I am looking for feedback on the interface and any suggestions as to how to improve the site.

    Thank you,

    Michael

      Seems like a site designed to track T206 cards that sell on Ebay. Is that what you were going for?

      Personally I was expecting something more along the lines of history of the cards, or collections of the cards.

      Search function works well though.

      Nice and simple easy to navigate.

        Yes, the idea of the site is to track T206 cards that are selling on eBay. The site uses finished prices to generate "market price" of graded cards; you need to select a card, grading company, and grade to see a market price.

          Then you have done it very well, I searched a few cards mostly big names and the list of sales was well put together.

          Are you planning on adding a feature that compares "market value" sale price to actual known value of the cards, to compare trends in pricing?

          Does beckett give condition based prices on those cards?

            Cool Site

            Yes, this is a very cool site -- there is even a link to the population that makes up the prices!

            It would be nice to be able to overlay multiple cards on the graph.

            Thanks!

              Honus Wagner T206?

              I like the price history chart - any chance of getting the Honus Wagner card added as well?

                Feedback from a collector who used to collect T206 before moving on to rarer cards

                First off, your site will help the newbie who is just getting into T206 and doesnt know what a certain player usually sells for. Like others have said you may want to have a page or two of the history of the cards, with some photos, etc.

                I looked at the PSA pop and what happened to cards like both of the Crawford's. He is far from rare yet your pop chart shows "0" for each of his 2 cards.

                Also you should track all T206 cards, not just graded. Graded make up only about 5-10% of the population, especially with commons who most oldschool collectors would never think of getting graded.

                I didnt see but does your list break cards down by backs...... the value of most T206 cards is driven by the back of the card not necessarily the player on the front.

                I personally dont activily collect T206 cards anymore because (overall) they are too common and bore me now, but if I do pick one up its only because of the back (ie. Red Hindu, Uzit, Drum, etc.).
                I like the related cards like T213-1, T213-3 T214, T215-1, T215-2, etc. more because they are far less common.

                  Honus-Wagner.org....... Did you know you have a picture of a reprint card on your site.

                  The card pictured under "Other T206 Honus Wagner cards" is a common reprint.

                  I have scans/photos of 23 different T206 Wagners.
