Hi All:

Just beginning to branch out into pre-war cards and have lurked long enough. I know a few of you guys from OBC but that's about it. I am starting to put together Brooklyn Dodger team sets primarily from various E, T and R sets (I especially am fond of 30's R cards at present)and also collecting T 205/6/7 backs. Casting about for information, I re-stumbled across this forum.

It's out of context here but I am also a big 60's and 70's Topps Oddball collector and am trying to piece together a baseball type set thru 1980 from the king o' bubble gum as well (excluding those four and five figure proofs!). I'm also fascinated by Lenticular technology of the 60s' and 70's.

I have a few articles in the OBC library, including a long out-of-date (written in 1992) T card monograph and you may have seem my bit on Topps Inserts and Test Sets there as well (also old but holding up better). I also try to maintain extensive vertical files and scans on the vintage sets as I am a bit of an archivist and very interested in the historical aspects of sports (and non-sports) cards and how they fit into the pop culture of their time.

Well enough about me......I look forward to reading through all the posts!

Happy New Year too!

Dave Hornish

Welcome to the board Dave. Sounds like you've been doing a bit of research and keeping some good files, so in that respect you came to the right place. As you may have noticed, the board is a little occupied today with one of the controversial threads that pop up from time to time, but things will calm down. If you can think of something good to share, you may be able to distract us from all the other stuff that goes on here. But don't mind us, we're used to it.

Welcome, Dave!!

You must be a brave lurker. The timid lurkers are fearful of posting.

Gotta love those R cards!

Good luck with it all. Frank.

Hiya and welcome Dave! Was wondering when you might find this site.

To the rest....Dave really knows his stuff on Topps test and oddball issues and if he puts half the effort into prewar that he does those sets he will be a very welcome addition here.

Joshua

Always great to have another cardoholic. Most of the times this place is pretty good but every once in a while (well about once a week) we have a little drama....Not sure that the majority don't actually like some drama. Please feel free to join in at will and if I can ever help let me know. I know of no other place on the net that has a more vast array of knowledge on vintage baseball cards......best regards

Thanks for the warm welcome all (Hi Josh!). Now, what do I have to do to de-lurk and apply for membership on this specific forum? I did a search and was confounded (not a rare occurrence).

Dave,

Leon, our dear moderator is trying to maintain your interest in our little cyber-community. Sometimes we're arguing and going crazy over hobby issues and sometimes we're way O/T. There are even times when we discuss pre-war baseball cards. But that's what makes it fun. Glad to have you on board.

Peter

Being nice to Newbies is a sensible strategy. I sometimes give kids a T206 or two. Or a Goudey card. We have to have someone interested in these things in a few years when we are dying off...

Frank.
