Posted By: <b>Leslie Westbrook</b><p>Does anyone have old photographs that depict candid (or posed, i guess) scenes that include baseball cards that were modern at the time the photo was taken? Photos of things like drugstore counters w/ card packs or cigarette packs, kids playing in their rooms with the cards of the day, old collectors, etc. I'm a photographer, and I've been searching for these kinds of old photos, but with no luck. I'd love to see what you all have, if any. I'm posting this on the pre-war forum as well in case you have a pic better-suited to that forum.
