Default Southern California Vintage Card and Collectibles Meetup

Hi Guys,

Hat tip for Ryan on creating a wonderful idea on hosting an East Coast vintage collectibles meetup. If you are a serious card collector on the Eastern Seaboard, please check out:

http://www.net54baseball.com/showthr...=252375&page=2

That said, wanted to gauge interest in a Southern California meetup. I did get several PMs of interest in the Los Angeles area, so this does seem to have traction for us SoCal people. To be upfront, it will be hard for me to spearhead this, as I have just finished work right now to write this, but I will do my best.

Was wondering if anyone is interested if they can provide the following:
1) Where do you live and where are you willing to drive to
2) What cards/memorabilia you collect and would like to see
3) If you will be willing to participate in co-managing the meetups
4) Any interesting ideas that would help promote activity in this meetup.

This list is by no mean complete, just a starter if you will. I will start:

I live in Rancho Palos Verdes. No one knows where it is; its where the 110S ends. I use to collect everything from 1800's to modern and collected with my father since the 1980 (and yes I have cases junk cards). In 2017, I moved from Pasadena to RPV and sold the majority of my cards during my move.

I have just got back into the hobby after getting the bug and now just focusing on graded pre-war cards (ie. 1st 5 HOF, Gehrig and Williams) and a couple "greatest hits" of the post-war like Aaron and Mantle. As I am rebuilding, my collection is still small so I don't have a collection ready yet for trade. But would hope to have one day, as I am building my doubles in a couple cards. Would love to see pre-war stuff. At this point I'm mainly into cards, but also have a few memorabilia items left to share.

Since I'm starting this thread, I guess I will be co-managing by default. But would really appreciate help.

PS. I don't mind hosting, but its not really convenient driving up my hill. I think once we get a sense of where those people are interested in driving to, I think we will get a better idea on venue.

Joshua

I'm in. And I could possibly host. I'm in the West LA/Culver City area. I collect sets from KBats to '18 Heritage.

Joshua-Thanks for putting this thread together. I'm in. I'm mainly interested in pre-1900 photographic cards. I know where RPV is-we've stayed at the Terranea.

I'm in OC, not far from PSA, and would be interested.

I'm also about 4 miles from the Angels stadium. If guys want to meet up then catch a game I'd be open to that as well.

Anthony's got a good space in Culver City...not to volunteer him but...

As for RPV, yeah, I know where that is too. Back in the Silurian Age I used to date a girl out there. Had to give that up...geographically undesirable.

In that area, if you could sprinkle a little on the football side, I'd be interested in anyone with old Rams memorabilia...40's through 60's.
