Default Hobby writer Paul Green Passes

Posted By: TONY

I just found out that long time hobby writer Paul Green died yesterday at his home in Costa Rica....

i met Paul at a coin show in the early 80's & quickly became friends with him, a very knowledgeable man indeed

He was a prolific writer on cards as well as coins over the yrs, writing for many Krause Publications

He & I co-authored a book on sportcards back in 1993, one of many that he wrote over the yrs


A loss to all that knew him

R.I.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.

I wondered about his health, as he didn't appear to be part of what is happening in cards today.

A shame, as it has evolved into much of what, many years ago, he expected it would become.

For those of you who didn't know Paul, he enjoyed the rare, rather than mainstream, cards that many of us treasure today.

And yes indeed, he was a prolific writer, about cards and baseball history.

It remains stunning to me, that this man actually conducted, what i believe to be, an in-person interview with Smokey Joe Wood.
I'll never forget his describing of that experience to me.

If i recall, that interview, along with those of other Baseball greats, appeared in his book "Forgotten Fields".

Paul Green was truly a hobbyist ahead of his time.

Rest in peace Paul, your contributions will certainly be missed.

Sad to hear this. I too recall reading his articles for both coins and cards. Condolences to his family and friends.
