Default Thanks, Luke, for thinking of featuring my collection on your blog

Looking forward to more of the articles/stories you told me you hope to pursue in the very near future. All good stuff.

Great story on the McCormick collection. I watched with much interest a few weeks back as the t206 Indians were auctioned on the bay.

Im a history teacher, so the t206's have struck a nerve in me since they are from a bygone era. Reading about how Ed worked to find out more about the collector of the cards was like a different level of "struck a nerve"

Well done Ed & Luke.

Every little bit of education on this set helps. Reading the McCormick stories reminded me that I had a card with a back stamp. It wasn't a McCormick, but it turned out to be a stamp that another board user collects.
