Nice list Vvvergeer. The tobacco cards are pretty cool. Those cards put into perspective just how long the game of baseball has been around, as well as how much the card industry has evolved. For better or worse. I also have to get some Mays, Banks, and Aaron cards. I like the '73 Aaron for starters.

I love the language on the back of the tobacco cards. Read the descriptions.

I'm spoiled, it's true, but I'm a bit annoyed that my oldest Aaron is 1972. He was a star of the 50s and 60s. Must remedy....So many cards, so little budget.

Very nice collection. Brought back a lot of memories. Love the Berra. I own only one tobacco card, bought it just to have one. You think about the years they went through and still survive. Amazing

That was my original thinking on the tobacco cards. I just wanted one, any one. Then I thought it should be a Cub. Then I thought I needed Tinker and Evers and Chance. That took me awhile. Now I want a Fred Merkle. And I'd say that would be the end, but maybe it won't be.

Great list. Your love of cards is similar to mine - the 70s and older are so much more interesting because they were about the player. I only have 5 of these cards in your list but I could make one of similar vintage cards that I treasure the most in my collection. By the way, my display case is mostly Nolan Ryan cards and things.

Thanks. Looks like you've got some nice vintage Bowman baseball. I really need a card or two from the 40s.

Oh man, you got a Hassan triple fold.  I really love those.  Just wish I had one myself.  I can see in my mind's eye that your collection would make for one cool display.  I got to get a display case of my own going soon.

Frank Sullivan, huh? Good thing you don't have a best friend named Mickey Mantle!

Keep us up to date on your T207 progress. Ten Cubs, two are HOFers.  I hope you get King Cole next, just because I enjoyed his write-up on the back in the site scan.

Really like the T cards and the Gum cards from the 30s and 40s. I'm going to try and acquire a few of those myself. Great list and excellent display choices.

Some very special ones in there. Many are from an era when baseball was still just a "sport" meant merely to be played, watched, and enjoyed. How times have changed over the past several decades and not just in sports. Great writeups also.

p.s. My sincerest apologies for generating the Forum topic of Baseball Humour. ..nah..not really , just trying to keep it light.
