I've been absent from the blog here, and from pretty much all aspects of my personal life, over this past week. I've got a major project going on at work that has basically had me working around the clock since Monday, and I've logged around four hours a day of drive time as well during that stretch. Tomorrow will be much of the same unfortunately, so I don't have a lot of time tonight.
I do want to get something up on the blog though, so why not a fantastic T206 tobacco card? A couple of years ago I started in earnest on a Red Sox team set, but after showing off my first four acquisitions I trailed off, sidetracked by other things. Well, tonight we get back on track and I present my fifth T206 Red Sox card:
This one is kind of cool as well given that Stahl's other variation in the set was the first T206 I ever owned. Aesthetically speaking I think I prefer that one actually, but this "no glove" variation is slightly rarer if I recall (cost me a few bucks more, anyway). Whatever the case, it feels good to have both Stahls now in hand.
On a blog-related note, I've decided to create a page for tracking my really old (pre-1950) Red Sox cards. My collection has gotten a bit disorganized since the demise of Zistle, but one of the areas I want to focus on getting cleaned up are my oldest Boston cards. I'll be back-filling some that I've already shown here in the past, and adding some new ones that I've had in queue for a while (like Jake here) very soon as well.
