OS 6 Collecting Intention Discussion
« on: November 22, 2017, 03:16:21 AM »
Now that this release has sold out and people have made their initial purchases; what did you buy and what/ how do you plan to collect? Will you trade and/or buy?
My Old School collection so far has been an endeavor where I get ALL available cards which was doable with Sets 1 - 5 at a pretty reasonable cost.
This time around I purchased two $150 sets hoping to at least score a set of the pencil roughs as those are new to OS with this release. We just learned those will be random; so even though I purchased 30 Roughs with two sets; it is doubtful I will receive a full set so I hope to trade to complete that set.
The othere parallels are another story. They are the cards that will break the bank to collect. I will get 30 assorted Tans/ Red-Black Ludlows from my two sets. I am not sure what I want to do about these cards.  The first complete sets offered on these are priced at $450 or $15 per card. I can't see paying that much per card to put together complete sets of these as I would need to buy 60 more cards ($900).  I am leaning towards trading to get a full set of Red Ludlows and  two of the other types (Tan and Black Ludlow). That course of action will not cost too much as I will start with 30 Tan, Red-Black Ludlow and end up with about 34 cards.

I'm hoping this forum will serve as a trading hub.  There is no reason people need to pay ebay and paypal fees!  I haven't yet decided what to collect as a keeper set, but I expect to have extras available for trade.

I purchased 3 sets, figured I should obtain one pencil set. But if not will trade. (That is the fun part).  Which ever set of ludlows I have most of, is the set I will complete. I am not sure about.a tan back set.

Very similar to you... I purchased two sets hoping to trade to get most of the roughs. Will also try to put together a set with mixed back variations.

Now leaning towards doing a mixed set of 10 of each Parallel (Tan, Red & Black Ludlow). I will be receiving 10 of each in my two $150 sets so hopefully with some trading I will be able build one mixed 30 card set. This will enable me to have one 9 pocket page of each back type in my binder which appeals to me.

I have printed a OS 6 Checklist and placed it in my OS3 Binder which now will house sets 3 and 6 as it had some room. Maybe someone will make checklists / puzzle pieces for OS6 and sell them to forum members???
