  1. I am on a trip out of the country until mid June, hoping you can set one aside for me.

  3. Sign me up, good sir. I finally broke out the last two sets I got from you - just beautiful. I sweated whether or not to sleeve them in sleeves & top loaders. I really love the feel of the materials you've been using - incredibly authentic feeling - and I honestly felt bad about trapping the cards inside plastic. Love the Art Deco designs on the 1930's set and the vibrant colors. Everything was just so spot-on, so right - better than ever any gum/cigarette card company was in that era, probably! Love the stamps and the burlap bag on the 1910 set, as well. Coincidentally, I'm re-watching Ken Burns' BASEBALL with my wife, who has never seen it, and we're in the 1910-1920 episode. Again, just luxurious production combined with superb design and artistic flair. Thanks for including me in your madness, good sir!

  4. On another note, I collect old toys - I have a late '40s/early '50s electric baseball game - similar to the electric football games that lasted well into the 1970s with their buzzing tin board. The color scheme you're using on this '40s set really invokes that cool old game. Which doesn't surprise me in the least, because that's just what you do!
