This Month on PostWarCards – November 2022

Despite being made up of other sports and other sports-related items and memorabilia, I’ve always referred to my collection as a baseball card collection.

I bring this up because one of my friends was giving me a hard time about picking up so many stamp and sticker-related books for my “baseball card” collection.

I reminded him that in 1969, Topps did create a set of baseball stamps that they packaged in wax packs.

The thing is, I guess I just haven’t figured out an easier way to describe my collection to people who aren’t in the hobby, and it’s a habit going back to when I was a kid; I call everything baseball cards; just like I call facial tissues Kleenex and any dark carbonated beverage a Coke.

I guess this is why it’s called the National Sports Collectors Convention and not the National Sports Card Collectors Convention, huh?

Anyway, while I have continued to make a ton of additions to my hobby library (which you can follow along about on Twitter), I’ve also continued to add to my personal writing library here on PostWarCards.Com; 31 new articles and archive additions were made to the site this month, along with the 12th and 13th Post War Cards Newsletters. I’ve linked all the new material below.
