Only on net54 does a guy rhetorically ask about the thickness of a card, and someone (who of course works in a machine shop) immediately responds with "6 thousands of an inch." I love this board.

I was going to say 7 thousandths.....Yes, our board has a diverse membership and is well educated for a lot of technical questions.

And when a nice group of '14s comes up at auction, such as the one prior to the current LTG auction, there is a feeding frenzy that would embarrass hungry sharks.

I respectfully disagree about preferring the stains. The LOTG auction (mentioned earlier - hi John) had amazing, virtually stain-free CJ's. These are tremendous examples, well worn around the edges, but with great surfaces. To me, they trump stained ones any day.

To me...I much prefer vintage cards that show age. I had a chance to handle a raw T206 that would easily grade a 7 or 8. It just looked wrong.

My Goudeys, T206, and CJ must have rounded corners or I'm not a buyer, particularly with the price they'd get.

I don't know why you would prefer a card that has been altered to look good over it in its original format. I would think the 1915s would appeal to you then but I guess it's to each their own.

Excuse my ignorance on the subject, but how were these cards packaged originally?

The 1914s were only obtainable by buying a box of cracker jacks. The 1915s were also inside the boxes but yet if you sent in 100 coupons or 1 coupon and 25 cents they would send you the entire set. So lots of 1915s are caramel stain free.

Perfect! I know '14s are right side up, and '15s are upside down, but are the checklists the same?
