Default You Guys Are Killing Me

I started off here innocently enough a few short years ago-looking for more knowledge on old cards, especially T206. So my T206 set is off and running, then I go and buy an E93 Phillippi a while back. OK. Then an Obak or two. No problem. Now I have purchased an E92 and an E95 from the BST here. Damn you all-I now appear to be assembling an E card type run---not to mention thinking about piecing together the 1910 Obak set. aaarrghhhhhhhhhh!

Looks like you need to join me in daily CA (cardaholics anonymous) meetings.

Default I'm with you guys

At first I started to buy sets from 1979 backwards towards the 60s and then found the t206s. Then I sold (and am selling) all my post war stuff and can't get enough tobacco and candy cards.

I love everything about them. The art, the history, the fact that a few blemishes are not taken so seriously, the thrill of the hunt. It's a passion now.

Thanks for creating a place for a junky to hang out. It's my baseball card flophouse.

dave,
i'm with you. as a fellow lover of the T206s, i've been loving the type journey as well, as i near my 100th different type from the unparalleled
period of 1900-1938. Certainly, not close to Leon's millionth type but still great fun.

what a life!
best,
barry

Hey Barry
I don't have anywhere close to a million but it feels like it!! If I would have stuck to only ACC cataloged cards I would have far fewer, but then what's the fun in that? My newest addition hasn't even made it to me yet but how do you know these things even exist, and you have to have them, before you see them? ......It's an addiction I tell ya'!!

Dave,

That was my first reaction too, blaming someone else that is! Welcome to the disease!
