I don't collect post war, but it would some time before my family saw me again if I warped to that 52 Topps display with a couple hundred dollars...thanks for posting that.

I never really thought about it before now, but did people then buy boxes? I always assumed not, but that seems like an astronomical amount of packs to put out for individual sale.

I am sure they did. I didn't start collecting until the mid 60s, but I bought boxes at age 7-8 by saving my allowance. I wouldn't see what would have been different ~15 years earlier. I have an older friend that said he only bought them by the set each year and claimed that included 1952 Topps. His cards were thrown away, so he may be mistaken on the years he had.

I'm sure we have some collectors that can pipe in that were buying the 1952's when they came out. Ted Z maybe?

Default Kids...(smh)

I had posted this pic a few years ago. Thought I'd add it to this thread as well.

How many cards can you ID?

Default Lots of T205 and T206

I found this picture surfing around. The picture was originally saved as dorm1.jpeg. It looks like possibly his dorm room around the 50s-60s timeframe.

Look closely at the wall. Lots and lots of tobacco cards.

I've never seen this before. Sorry if a repost.

That picture was posted here years ago & I think someone said it was during the time of WWI
Perhaps someone can find the original thread.
Fantastic picture

Default 1978 Children's Orphan Home

It appears the kid on the right is holding a card from the 1978 Donruss Elvis set. The other kid as well. I think I see 1971 and 1976 Topps baseball in the pile. Bless these kids.

I bought 52 TOPPS and other years. Only packs,
could not afford to buy a box.
