I’m about to release the 20th Post War Cards Newsletter, and I’ve been enjoying writing them so much that I’m debating changing my release schedule from every other week to weekly.
From a collecting perspective, I’ve been picking up a lot of random oddball cards but recently acquired a white whale of sorts. This card isn’t that rare or expensive, but I’ve been trying to get a decent one at a reasonable price for around two years; here’s my newly acquired 1948-49 Exhibits George Mikan.
The next card that fits a similar profile that I’d like to get, but have been waiting patiently for the right card/price, is a 1963 Fleer Baseball Checklist.
Anywho, this month on PostWarCards.Com, 31 new articles and archive additions were published, along with the 18th and 19th Post War Cards Newsletters. I’ve linked all the new material below.
