I launched The Post War Cards Newsletter this month, and two editions came out! So if you like the sorts of things I write about here on the blog and want to discuss sports card news and the industry, join me and subscribe!
As a hobby participant, I added a few more old card catalogs and 1963 Fleer baseball cards to my collection. I also picked up a nice PSA graded 1993 SP baseball wax pack. I’ve wanted one for a while but kept getting outbid. My patience paid off, and I got one at a reasonable price.
And here on PostWarCards.Com this month, I added quite a bit of content despite two weeks of work travel. Twenty-six new articles and archive additions were made to the site this month, along with the two newsletters, and they are all listed below.
