John Stomman & his family started the SCD Magazine, they were located in Milan Michigan. I started my subscription in the early 70's, back then it was a great source for cards. Bought and sold many cards thru the magazine. When it was bought out it started downhill .

I was a subscriber from 1976 up until the late 1990's. At that point they were being sent 4th class media mail and I would often get two or three issues on the same day.

I went my post office to complain and was told but the local postmaster that they only sorted media mail when he could afford extra people to work through it. He told me that by law/rules he didn't have to deliver media mail by any certain date. By the time I received it everything I would call on was already sold.

During it's heyday I loved it and still have thick folders with articles on stuff I collected.

I think F&W still does there in house but we do need patience.

And yes they should improve their on-line systems as I noted about my show calendar experiences

Hence the option to pay more for expedited delivery.

I didn't think about SCD in awhile. But since this post I just bought a subscription ( 26 issues for $ 26 ) . It will be fun ( I hope) to get some publication again in the mail. Since OldCardBoard stopped publication, the mail has been boring ! It would be nice to see monthly reports with sections devoted to 19th Century, Pre-War 20th Century, Post War 20th Century and Modern. I'll let you know what I think of my first issue when it arrives.


UPDATE: Ordered on 8/30, received my first issue on 9/25. It is 52 pages. Nice article about 1955 Topps Variations, 1948 Leaf Boxing Set etc.
I enjoyed getting something about SportsCards in the mail again ( better than bills) ! But I'm an oldtimer, still like to hold it in my hand instead of reading it on a screen. For $ 1 / issue I give it a thumbs up !

If anyone would like to sell their copy of the most recent (Oct 12, ‘18) issue, I’d love to buy a few extras!
