Thanks for checking out All Vintage Cards!
With this blog, i hope to share all of my past and current sports card collecting experience.
I started collecting cards back in 1985 and quickly became obsessed with the hobby.
A few years later I was setting up display cases at the local card shows alongside some grizzled veterans of the space.
Looking back, those years were right in the midst of the "junk card era", where card companies pumped out as many cards as humanly possible.
I took a break in my high school through college years (hey i needed some cash!) but it wasn't long before I was drawn back.
Today, I am obsessed again, but this time with those cards from WAY back in the day--thus the title of this blog "All Vintage Cards".
So what years does "vintage" include anyways? Well, there is no clearly defined line, but certainly anything pre-1980 is up for discussion, but most of my focus will lie well before that, starting in the early tobacco days and moving on to the early 1950s. I plan to cover not only baseball, but basketball and football cards too.
I hope to share some of my experiences and discoveries along the way, helping to make all of you more informed collectors.
Also, if you live in the Boston area and are looking to sell your sports cards let me know, I might be able to help you out.
Again, thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the blog!
