Default Memories of collecting 1933 Goudey in Ballcard Collector, 1970

In issue #50 of The Ballcard Collector (dated November 1970 but actually published in July of that year), the lead article was Elwood Scharf's detailed reminiscences of collecting the 1933 Goudey set as a schoolboy. He remembers how they would try to look through the wrapper to make sure they didn't get a card they already had (since there was only one card per pack), describes the timing of each of the 10 series of 24 cards, and remembers how nobody could ever find #106, despite rumors that some kid had one. I don't remember ever seeing this before, so I'm posting it for everybody's enjoyment.
