Hey, Chuck - welcome to a great Baseball community!

One word of advise tacked onto what has already been shared:

Since you collect raw cards, please take the extra step, anytime you have doubts, to ask the opinion of some of these friendly experts as to the authenticity of your current target or targets.

They will steer you right.

Have fun,

Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

Hey Chuck, welcome to the "54" sir. Like your choice of cards and of course the New England connection. Great bunch of people here that are more than willing to discuss,advise and assist you with their collecting knowledge and experiences. I`m sure you`ll enjoy your time here be it just reading and learning or adding your own collecting opinions. On a side note, being in Vegas how`s the NHL`s newest addition, The Knights, being received ? See you on the board,

Hey Chuck, I'm just curious: why these guys but not Ty Cobb? And also welcome to Net54.

I saw the site from just browsing around.

Vintage baseball cards are the only items that I kept from my younger years. Over time I picked up some more.

Almost all of my cards are from years 1909-1979 and I only collect raw cards. I focus on HOF and quality semi star players.

I'd say my best cards are as follows :

1909 T-206 : John McGraw (portrait, no cap)
1909 T-206 : Joe Tinker (bat on shoulder)
1933 Goudey : Jimmie Foxx
1933 Goudey : Frankie Frisch
1934 Goudey : Mickey Cochrane
1934-36 Diamond Stars : Pie Traynor
1938 Goudey (Heads Up) : Charlie Gehringer
1939 Play Ball : Lefty Gomez
1939 Play Ball : Hank Greenberg
1939 Play Ball : Bill Dickey
1940 Play Ball : Connie Mack
1941 Play Ball : Mel Ott
1948 Bowman : Bob Feller
1949 Bowman : Roy Campanella (rookie)
1953 Topps : Satchel Paige
1954 Topps : Jackie Robinson
1958 Topps : Ted Williams
1962 Topps : Stan Musial
1962 Topps : Sandy Koufax
1964 Topps : Mickey Mantle
1965 Topps : Willie Mays
1966 Topps : Jim Palmer (rookie)
1967 Topps : Rod Carew (rookie)
1968 Topps : Johnny Bench (rookie)
1976 Topps : Hank Aaron (autographed, I met him in 1982)

I own many more vintage HOF cards, but those above stick out right now.

Anyway, It's REALLY cool to be here. I look forward to reading and sometimes posting in the future.
Very nice collection. That group would make my next five shows absolutely rock! Welcome to the board.

Welcome to the board Chuck. I'm new to the board myself, a couple of months anyways. People have been nice and helpful. I've tried not to pepper the board with too many dumb questions. ha ha

I hang out on the Post-War section mostly. Focus on '54 - 75 mainly.
