Welcome to my old baseball card wantlist.  I appreciate you taking the time to stop by and have a look.

I'm far from picky about condition - as long as it can be recognized as once having been a baseball card, then I'm good!  Was it used to make your bike sound like a Harley?  I'll take it.  Has it been somehow altered with pen, pencil, crayon, sandpaper, glue, water, darts or a hole punch?  Has it had a new team name written in after the player was traded?  Does the player now sport a moustache, beard or birth-control glasses?   I want it!  If it's got round corners, missing corners, more creases than Grandpa's face, been ripped/cut and taped back together, then it has a home with me.  I think you get the idea; I like my cards 'well-loved'.

I have been a proud member of OBC (oldbaseballcards.com) since 1996.  My collection would be a pale shadow of what it is if it wasn't for the invaluable help from the OBC membership.  We are a group of collectors/traders who collect for the sheer love of old cardboard and the friendships that have developed because of that mutual love.  If you'd like to know more about "collecting the way it should be", please head over to the site and check it out.
