nice article. I've always entertained the idea of one day chasing at least the named indian chiefs as I'm kinda partial to native american themes. It's an exciting set and full of intrigue, challenge, and history. Oooops. It's a 20th century set - need to hit the lotto first
After reading the article I found myself drawn into the murky depths of the registry. I went thru Psa and SGC registries for a couple of hours focusing on 19th century inserts. Really only the second time I have even glanced at either site and I was surprised by how few early sets were actually registered. I wasn't surprised that a few people were responsible for many of the represented sets. I have a couple/three blue chip sets that are SGC graded but can't seem to justify the time for putting them on the registry and as I'm usually content to retain a set I've completed at the condition it is in - I'm a little afraid that listing it would make me more prone to trading and upgrading - an activity that would render me unable to chase all the other crap I currently do. I'm a set type of person but the the rarified air top condition stuff isn't important to me........ I'm looking forward to having some cards graded at the national as I attempt to complete my 6/7 graded sets. Grading is a love/hate thing for me but seems to be the direction I've been going in - a little more than half my cards are graded. Easiest way to buy/sell/display/store/appreciate my cards - it's not for everybody but works for me.
