I think this has been brought up before, but if someone were to do an update of the ACC, would anyone care outside of geeks like us? The book really does need to be updated.

Speak for yourself, Jay. The answer is that it doesn't need updating - a few obscure issues isn't worth that effort. And, of course, there's no one to own it. Better to worry about whether the Twinkies will make the playoffs...

I speak for everyone, you know that There are a lot of X-Unc sets that need designations. There also sets like e92s that really should be broken down into seperate sats and designate as e92-1, e92-2 etc. Breaking the m101-4/5 set into it's serperate sets would solve a lot of issues as to what is an m101-4 or 5. It probably wouldn't hurt to reclassify some set that are designated incorrectly such as Old Mill cabinets.

Jay- I agree with you. I am not sure it's feasible for many reasons though....

This post is about to drop off the first page, and I do not think it is ready to be put to bed. I am up for putting numbers on the -unc designations we have tabulated and enlisting the support of the price guides, hobby publications, price and image software owners and anyone else whose cooperation is important.

It is clear from the previous thread that many board participants do not seem to care about this issue. It is also clear that others, perhaps those who frequently deal with a diversified collecting base, do care about designations.

This proposed effort went nowhere last time, and will go nowhere this time unless someone picks up the ball. Ok, I pick up the ball, since someone has to.

Now I need help - I have no knowledge to speak of. One thing I need is a list of the -unc sets. Please give them to me. Then I will need to see what designations are available. I have a '75 Sports Collectors Bible. Is that the ideal starting point? Or is an alternate better?

We can do this.

Why don't you just make it easy on yourself and start with the current Big Book Krause SCD? If you work backwards in them, through the years, you will have most of the uncat sets....I will be more than glad to help but honestly don't think the there is enough support to get it done. You, I, and a handful of folks on the board might be about it....I would certainly vote to leave the ACC the exact way the last revision was and not touch it. I would propose coming out with a smaller "ACC Uncategorized Cards Update". A little bit like Lew did in his "Old Judge" series....but more comprehensive......good luck....I'll be watching

We also should make a list of sets, such as the e92 and m101-4/5 that need to broken down into seperate sets. The m101-4/5 could get a bit messy with the designation, but a double hyphen isn't unprecedented.

Leon brings up a good point. We wouldn't be making changes to the whole ACC, just the baseball card portion.

Cleaning up some of Burdicks oversights and mistakes in the orignal ACC isn't a bad idea though.

IMHO, the ACC is sacred and should not be changed in any way.....again, I am sure there are different views but I view it as sacred to collecting...We all know the mistakes made but they are what they are....I would vote only to categorize the baseball cards that aren't in there....there has to be a few hundred....and maybe it would be entitled with a "Baseball" in the name of it so it wouldnt be confused with the whole ACC being updated....No way would I want to do that....but bless our collecting grandfathers for doing it....
