Default VCBC articles on Obaks??

I have been reading old threads about the Obaks. There are constant references to informative articles about them. Is there anyway I can access them?

Specifically, I saw volumes 3 and 12 mentioned.

Conor, honestly about anything on the Obaks. I am in research mode right now. I have a board member (thanks Mark) who is sending some info., and I have purchased a couple of old issues on the bay. I would like to read anything Obak related. Thank you.

Old Cardboard has a useful index of their articles plus VCBC (and some other publications). Here is a screencap for "Obak".

Thank you. Very helpful!

What did you click on to arrive at that screen? I can't get there.

I have all those articles and can scan them when I get home, but that won't be until tomorrow (Monday) night. In the meantime, if you want some historical background, the following thread that I posted last year has scans of the two earliest hobby articles about Obaks, from 1957 and 1961:

Very useful to know. Click on the Old Cardboard icon at top right of the N54 screen to bring up the OC main page. Then click on the magnifying glass icon (article index) and Bob's your uncle.

Awesome! I will read whatever you can throw my way. I don't know how I missed that thread. Thanks for your help. That will be good reading.

Ok, now I see. I didn't know that trick. When I get home from the in-law's, I will have some reading to do. Looking forward to it.

Thanks, everybody!

I actually bought my first Obak last night....the Hetling (Portland) in SGC 2. Other Obak purchases will probabIy be closer to the vgex range, but i just wanted one to look at for now. I think I am going to focus on the 1910 T212-2s, 175 subjects and whatever 150s I can find. They are so beautiful! Looking through the galleries initially, I noticed that they look like T206 however, upon closer inspection, I was struck by the beauty of the cards. I didn't see many that didn't qualify as little works of art. I haven't felt this kind of passion in my collecting in a while. It is fun for me reading, researching, and learning about the Obaks. It occurs to me that the best part of collecting is this initial part when everything is new and exciting.
