Posted By: <b>TONY</b><p>I just found out that long time hobby writer Paul Green died yesterday at his home in Costa Rica....<br /><br />i met Paul at a coin show in the early 80's & quickly became friends with him, a very knowledgeable man indeed<br /><br />He was a prolific writer on cards as well as coins over the yrs, writing for many Krause Publications<br /><br />He & I co-authored a book on sportcards back in 1993, one of many that he wrote over the yrs<br /><br /><br />A loss to all that knew him<br /><br />R.I.P.

Posted By: <b>Brian Goldner</b><p>Though i haven't heard from Paul in quite some time, he definitely left a positive imprint on the baseball card hobby, and i might expect, the coin hobby as well.<br /><br />I wondered about his health, as he didn't appear to be part of what is happening in cards today.<br /><br />A shame, as it has evolved into much of what, many years ago, he expected it would become. <br /><br />For those of you who didn't know Paul, he enjoyed the rare, rather than mainstream, cards that many of us treasure today.<br /><br />And yes indeed, he was a prolific writer, about cards and baseball history.<br /><br />It remains stunning to me, that this man actually conducted, what i believe to be, an in-person interview with Smokey Joe Wood.<br />I'll never forget his describing of that experience to me.<br /><br />If i recall, that interview, along with those of other Baseball greats, appeared in his book "Forgotten Fields".<br /><br />Paul Green was truly a hobbyist ahead of his time.<br /><br />Rest in peace Paul, your contributions will certainly be missed.<br /><br />
