ebay handsaws

I'm adding used Handsaw to my ever growing hand tool pile. ebay is addictive.

i'm not sure as to what is best for each task, wood type etc. is there a handy chart somewhere? i need a cheat sheet while combing through ebay

for instance i just bought, as listed, a Atkins 26" rip saw 10 PT. it basically looks new and for 9.99 plus shipping, i just had to jump on it.

there is another i bidding on: "Disston No. 16 has a 26" blade with a faint etch still on it. This saw is 5 1/2 PPI,"

are these worth it? any good resource on what saw to use with what?
