This Month on PostWarCards – June 2023

One of the fantastic things about running this blog for the past few years is the number of awesome collectors it has connected with me. So please, if you have any cool hobby experiences, questions, or unique items you’d like to share, shoot me an e-mail! Here are just a few of the conversations I’ve had this month:

First, a collector reached out and shared a group of ultra-scarce unopened items with me, including a pair of rare baseball wax wrappers that I highlighted in Newsletter #35 and two cool empty boxes (a 1964 Topps Gift Box and a 1964 O-Pee-Chee Baseball Box) that I’ll be featuring in a pair of upcoming articles.

I had another great conversation about 1993 Topps baseball boxes that I featured in Newsletter #36.

It turns out I’m not the only psychopath building a hobby library. Another collector shared photos of his bookshelves, his Google Sheets reference lists, and a photo from an auction that would have been a great way to jump-start a hobby book collection.

Another collector asked me about 1989 Fleer uncut sheets, and another hobby legend shared some information about 1952 Topps Salesman Samples with me.

I was also connected with the author of the non-sports bible, one of the greatest hobby resources ever published.

And finally, last month, I learned about one of the most impressive basketball collections in the hobby; this photo is just a tiny taste taken from a YouTube video.
