This Month on PostWarCards – August 2022

My hobby focus this month was on learning, enabled by enormous growth in my hobby library. I share each book/magazine/newspaper pick-up over on Twitter, and once I reorganize my home office, I’ll share an update to an article I wrote in March 2021 called The Books Magazines and Catalogs that Make Up My Sports Card Library. In case you were wondering, I also wrote a post about Why I Collect Old Sports Card Catalogs, Guides, and Magazines.

This month’s most significant addition to the library was a complete run of Old Cardboard magazines. I can’t recommend it enough if you want to learn about pre-war cards. They also feature some excellent hobby commentary and occasionally highlight a significant post-war set; think National Sports Collectors Convention reviews and sets like 1952 Topps baseball.

Old Cardboard Magazine Run

Speaking of, I didn’t make it to the National Sports Collectors Convention in Atlantic City this year; Atlantic City is just a little too inconvenient from California, and I had just taken a bunch of time off from work. For what it’s worth, if I got a vote, I’d go for permanency in Chicago.

Here on PostWarCards.Com, I continued to add a lot of content; 28 new articles and archive additions were made to the site this month, along with the fifth and sixth Post War Cards newsletters (subscribe below), and they are all listed below.
