As things evolve in the hobby so do our collecting interests. For personal reasons I am starting to focus on only 20th Century type cards. I might continue a few sets (D303 and 1916 W-Unc Big Heads) but am scaling back a little bit...with respect to money being spent (well, except for the D304 Cobby)......Your current focus?

I have abandonded type collecting as Leon can attest to...it's quite costly. I've been selling some of my types and will be selling more soon. I now collect cards that I like...period! I feel liberated...rejuvenated...and born again.

My current focus is to chip away at the C46 and 1911 Obak sets as well as completing my zeenut run. I also want to work on obtaining period PCL cards for each player in the PCL Hall of Fame though that may prove a formidable task given that Joe DiMaggio is in the Hall.

I have a two tier collection. First I have my "must buy when I see it available" part. That collection consists of my Pinkerton postcards, 1923 exhibits and Dietsche postcards.

My other sets that I am working on are Goudey wide pen premiums (all four types), 1921, 22 and 25 Exhibits, Orcajo Reds and 1919 Cincinnati Reds postcards and Colgans.

and only tobacco at that, as I still haven't found a Caramel issue I like. The irony here is amazing, as I am an anti-smoker with a HUGE sweet tooth!

However, I will admit to now having wandered off the reservation a bit if I find something I really like. They don't fit, except for my homemade caveat that I love the images.
T200 Cleveland
T206 Lajoie (bat)
T206 Merkle (Throwing)
T206 Chase (Blue port)

Add to this area's wantlist:
T200 Pitt and NYN
T206 Wheat
T206 Chase (pink port)

I am also considering going after a VERY unusual subset of T206s: The heavy sweater cards. They tend to be interesting images, even if you're not a metrosexual or a clothes horse.

A confession:
recently - I have found myself, on more than one occasion, considering selling all my baseball cards - and focussing solely on vintage golf cards.


I think I need preseason to start to knock that thought out of my head.

Pitchers and catchers tomorrow.

Previously I wanted and collected almost any pre 1930 20th century cards, but found it somewhat maddening always wanting. I've scaled back my collecting to the sets below to try to keep things under control. However, I still do stray from time to time.

Novelty Cutlery postcards
PC796 Sepia postcards
Rose Company postcards
1915 Cracker Jack
1922 W575-2
1928 W502

Nothing too dramatically new for me.

I'm still working hard on seeking upgrades to my '38 Goudey set, plus searching high and low for Henry Johnson Confectioners cards. I've also got an eye out looking for new additions to the Nifty Fifty, with a focus on a couple of 19th Century cards I'd like to add. And when I see them, I pick up medium-sized lots of T205s or T206s if I can get them cheap.

Because my card budget for this year will be tight, I'm also working on a run of 1970s Topps sets, just to feed the beast on a consistent basis.

Lately I've been really trying to find a nice Mayo Cut, maybe a 3 or 4. I've also wanted a Ramly HOFer for such a long time. I have to say though, I've been contemplating putting together a nice high grade, 6 at the least, Diamond Star set lately. I just love this issue.

I tried the "nifty fifty", i.e. cards that would constitute my core collection. After going through the database marking each of the "nifty fifty" I ended up with 263! Somethings got to give.
