Thanks for posting these, David. They are always enjoyable to read.

A few of my favorites from this document:
  • Lionel Carter spends more words specifying what he doesn't collect than what he does...and that his favorites are T207 Lowdermilk and T206 Plank.
  • Walter Corson was selling his collection (due to illness...he would pass away in 1966), which included "over 1,000 complete gum and tobacco card sets".
  • I wonder where Wirt Gammon's T206 Wagner is now.

  • Karl Wingler's comments about the 1866 book American Pastimes were great.

  • Bruce Foster owned ten of the Harry Wright scrapbooks.

Cheers,
Steve
