After all, this is Poor Old Baseball Cards.
In 2009, I posted this card here. And while it's not in the best shape, this example is far worse. And I love it.
You really need to click on the card pictured above to get a sense of its awesomeness.
If you don't own a 1948 leaf card, you should. The simple design and vivid, bright colors are amazing.
I recently read that while these cards have both 1948 and 1949 copyright dates, they were actually distributed in 1949. Any oldtimers out there remember collecting these cards as children?
I know it's a long shot but it would be great to hear from someone who was an original owner.
