This Month on PostWarCards – April 2023

I’ve finally organized most of my hobby library! The first photo is of the books that are within arms reach of my desk – those I reference most frequently.

This next photo is of a pair of shelving units along an inner wall which holds my archive of Old Cardboard Magazine, SMRs, Auction Catalogs, Trader Speaks, Baseball Card Magazine, Becketts, Baseball Hobby News, Sports Collectors Digest, among others.

Notice the empty 1978 Topps Basketball Wax Case in the corner? I used to have a pair of PSA-graded sets. So, more on that case in a future newsletter; it’s got a pretty funny story.

I’m not done yet. My hobby library is more than just shelves full of books, it’s a place to read and display cards and hobby memorabilia. I still need to move the couch, put some stuff up on the walls (uncut sheets, proof boxes, etc.), and make sure all my sports-related knick-knacks are displayed here. By the way, after going to dozens of furniture stores I ended up buying Ikea KALLAX Shelf Units.

In terms of hobby writing, I published 8 new articles and made 18 archive additions here on I also issued 5 Post War Cards Newsletters over on Substack. I’ve linked all the new material below.
