Default New to the Forum

Hello everyone!

I'm only 19, second year engineering student from California and the history of the game itself fascinates me.

I am a new collector to pre-war cards. I realized that modern cards are not for me, that's why I'm switching over to pre-war. I guess any recommendations would be fine. I'm looking at T206 right now since it's the popular type of cards but I'm really open to anything. I guess my job is to research the different types of cards.

Thanks for reading!

Default welcome

Welcome John
It's always great to have new members and really great to have some nice young guys/girls get in on the action. I am a type card collector so have a fairly broad knowledge of many types of pre-war cards. I have a personal collection website with almost as many different types as you will see in one place. It can be seen here-

Once again, welcome aboard and let me know if I can ever help you!!

take care
Leon Luckey

I started collecting '50s-'60s Topps cards when I was 17 back in 1998 so it's always great to see younger collectors coming in to the hobby. Welcome aboard!
