“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade
beat up cards and feature them on your blog.
That’s awesome. Totally different than all the
other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”
For those of you who are new to this blog, I started it nearly two years ago as a way to share my collection of, let's just say, non-mint baseball cards.
When I was a kid, I always wanted the vintage card of Mickey Mantle or Willie Mays or even Babe Ruth. But as you would imagine, those cards were not cheap.
So in order to afford my first T206 Ty Cobb, I had to buy the one with a pinhole near Cobb's forehead.
Today, those cards I was buying for $20 or $30 in the 1980s are worth a bit more.
To me, It was never about condition. It was more about having that little piece of history. Even today.
And so, the quest continues.
This Otto Knabe card is actually a recent purchase. While Knabe was never in the same class at Walter Johnson or Napoleon Lajoie, he is shown here on what I consider the greatest baseball card set ever made. Plus, it's 101 years old.
So check back regularly, I have many more cards to share.
