Posted By: <b>Charley</b><p>I attended my first major show after 8 months of lurking here. Very much enjoyed looking at various pre-war cards. Almost scary that I now know a T-206, from a 205, from a Turkey Red. Thanks for introducing me to this demension of card collecting.

Posted By: <b>Lee Behrens</b><p>welcome to the wonderful world of vintage card collecting. It will drain your pocketbook and drive you nuts at times. But, I personally could think of no better way to spent my hard earned money and my extra time conversing them great people that also enjoy the cards and the history. <BR><BR>Have Fun<BR><BR>Lee

Posted By: <b>Adam J. Baxter</b><p><BR>Welcome to the Pre-War baseball card hobby. I'm glad to hear you had such a good experience at your first major show. This is a whole new world and here's hoping you have a lot's of fun exploring it. I agree with Lee that sometimes these things will drive you nuts. When I first got into baseball cards I had all my Clemenses and Pucketts and Cansecos neatly tucked in a row. Now I spend most of my time huddled in a corner quietly laughing to myself with a fistful of Obak in one hand and N172's in the other. Good Luck and please keep us all posted on how your collecting is coming along.<BR><BR>Regards,<BR> Adam
