Default Vintage vs Modern pick-ups

When we start new monthly pick-up threads, it might be helpful to have one for vintage, and one for post-wwii. I'll start an April vintage thread when the time comes, but since that will be April Fool's Day, probably no one will believe I'm serious. What a conundrum.

Where will we put the acquisitions from during War time... circa 1939 - 45?

Pre? Post?

We'd better start a 3rd thread

Yeah, to avoid that confusion I would normally just say 'vintage', but if you are 30, the 1990's are vintage. And to me, pre-wwi (the Great War, the War to end all Wars), is pre-war.

This sounds good to me. I tend to be more interested in post war memorabilia than pre war. This would permit me to ignore all of those boring Cobb, Wagner, Ruth, and Gehrig items

Well, this is actually a 'Vintage Memorabilia' Forum, which makes sense given that it's an off-shoot of a 'Pre-War Cards' Forum. And it used to be that most of what was posted here was really cool vintage stuff. Now it often looks like a minor league version of GUU.

Give me a sec - I'm taking pics of my 2007 Astros bench-coach 'game-worn' jersey.

I don't see the point of having two pick up threads.

Does it take that long to scroll past the items that don't interest you?

That's probably my fault. I don't collect cards anymore, mostly just game used, and I know lately I've posted some modern game used items, even tho most of my collection is vintage.

If it's bothering people, please let me know and I'll stop. I really had no idea that bothered people that much. There really isn't any sense of me taking pics of a couple modern bats I picked up and put them in one thread. Then....have me take pics of my vintage bat pickups in another. That just isn't worth it to me.

I don't necessarily enjoy scrolling thru the hundreds of photos posted that people pick up, but I don't really have a problem with it either. It's a baseball forum. I get it.

Again, if it bothers people, let me know and I'll stop.

Doesn't bother me...guess I'm guilty of it, too. I collect both and don't mind seeing the more recent stuff next to the more recent. I think I would on the card and/or auto side though...
