Scott---There have to be better uses for this site than finding people on ebay who could use some additional education.

If more of the people with the knowledge and experience would post, people like me would not get bored and drag garbage from ebay onto the board. Honestly, I realize that most of the time I am talking to myself - if I really want to discuss vintage cards I have to get on the phone or send some emails.

I started a thread about this subject once before, but it died immediately. No one wants to ruffle the feathers of the experts, but let's be honest - we would all like to see better stuff on this board, and this IS the best forum I know of for vintage card discussions. Perhaps there is some monthly virtual meeting where all the gods of cards get together and smoke pipes and discuss their million-dollar collections...

I also started a thread about the scarcity of t205 backs - remember that one? I'd be surprised, as it died almost immediately. I offered to gather all the information that the experts cared to share, and create a useful list (yes, I would do the work - I just wanted a few brain dumps). Most collectors would enjoy seeing the same sort of info about t205 backs that we saw in Doug and Art's (I think it was them) VCBC article on t206 backs, which made the t206museum look plain silly. But here's where everyone can whack me on the back of the hand again...the people with the knowledge do not want others to know about it. Their theory is that then the great deals would disappear. I disagree. BTW, thanks to the 2 people who sent information to me on t205 backs.

Also, I don't plan to be leaving this hobby any time soon, and I can promise you that 20 years from now I will be more than willing to share whatever knowledge I have with any of the future runscotts out there, in a public forum. Hold me to it. See you in the chatroom (I need to use some profanity)

I just got back into town....I pretty much agree with everything you said.....call me the eternal optimist but I think there are still some good veterans out there that we can learn from though......and then there are some who are going to keep their little secrets till they go to their grave....(how nice of them)..............best regards

I know a lot of these questions have been asked and thoroughly answered multiple times. I think the experts that responded on this board and on the Full Count board in the past are just tired of reproducing their responses (some of which were quite thorough and elaborate, obviously requiring a great deal of time). I wish there was some way to put the old Full Count board into a hard-copy pamphlet - some of the information was priceless.
