Posted By: <b>Geno</b><p>Seeing that book reminded me that I found a bunch of 1981 Fleer error cards in my dupes box the other day. If anyone is still looking for any of them, either error or corrected, let me know.<br /><br />I still love the 1981 Donruss for all the views of Wrigley Field!<br /><br />Take Care, Geno

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>'56 pins were a Topps issue, pretty cool one. I think Madec has a full set in his next auction<br />

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Anthony and Al,<br />Thanks. I have about a half dozen pins. Would you know what the coins are that they refer to?

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>I think the coins part was a mistake- Topps issue cards, stamps, doubleheaders and pins. And possibly the hocus pocus set, although that may be have '54 or '55.<br /> The only coins from that year were Armours, I believe.

Posted By: <b>Jim VB</b><p>Dennis, <br /><br />Crap! You mean I missed the 1982 edition? Well, at least I got the 1983 version with the "Full Color Collector Card" included!<br /><br /><img src="http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb189/jvb6034/BaseballPriceGuide.jpg"><br /><br /><br />Geno, <br /><br />Going through the garage last week I came across eight vending boxes of 1981 Fleer (1-4, 2 each). I didn't know what to do with them either, so I left them right where they were.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Cover, and a young Keith O. Looks to me like his high school yearbook photograph. I hope he's still not wearing that coat! Still has the sheet of sample cards -- best two are Berra as a Mets' manager and Gaylord Perry. Honus ad is priceless, so to speak.<br /><br />(Anthony - thanks for the additional feedback on the coins.)<br /><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Other/CollectorsQuarterly_Winter75.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Other/CollectorsQuarterly_Winter75_Keith_.jpg"> <img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Other/CollectorsQuarterly_Winter75_Honus_.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Steve Clark</b><p>I still have the Pete Rose price guide - that was what started me into the hobby after college (and digging out my childhood collection). I also have the OJ one with the card intact, but we don't talk about that.<br /><br />The oldest monthly price guide I have is a July 1983 CPU (Card Prices Update).

Posted By: <b>Steve Clark</b><p>I was going through my old magazines/photos box and came across my favorite magazine, 1970 Football Street & Smith. Here's an ad from that magazine<br /><br /><img src="http://home.comcast.net/~ouray2/images/70ss.jpg">

Posted By: <b>howard</b><p>Paul, that Collector's Quarterly really took me back to when I first started collecting cards as a kid. I completely forgot about it but I bought that magazine when it was first issued.<br /><br />I don't remember much about the contents but can you tell me if there is a poem by Joel Oppenheimer in it? Thanks,<br /><br />Howard

Posted By: <b>Howard</b><p>Paul, thanks for taking the trouble to post those poems. Much appreciated. <br /><br />It's really not much of a story. Around the time the magazine came out I became friends w/Joel Oppenheimer's son, Nat, although it would be a while before I realized the connection between him and poems. <br /><br />The family had some neat memorabilia including some seats from the original Yankee Stadium.<br /><br />Thanks again,<br /><br />Howard
