Wait til Next Year . . . is making a come back.

I am going to mix a bit of the philosophy of my life into this blog as I continue to highlight some of my baseball card collection. (hoping the card collectors of this world welcome me back)

Its been a tough 18 months for me . . . the Chicago Cubs have had it rough as well.

This site will be devoted to all those who need to define what "wait til next year" means.

a "vintage" trade that is "birth-year" good

when Adam of Thoughts and Sox offered some 1960 Cubs cards for trade, our email communication started. It was easy for me as being the Cub fan I am, preferring "vintage" cards from my youth and being born in 1960 this was a no brainer.

I sent Adam a couple of dozen Red Sox cards from 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1971 . . . and I got nineteen of the 1960 Chicago Cubs (yes the real old ones actually from 1960 not the Heritage version - although those are nice too). I am now only a few cards shy of completing the Cubs Team set from 1960.

here are just a few of "my birth year" cards: don't you just love that cute little cub bear face in the bottom left corner. I find it rather creative (for the year) in the use of different color backgrounds for the black and white player photos. I also like the horizontal look, though the manager cards were vertical, and the Rookie Star card with the red, white and blue stripe. I will scan more of these soon.

Adam was also kind enough to send a few "modern" Cubs cards "just because" he is a nice guy and I greatly appreciated them as well.

Thank you Adam for making this "vintage" trade Birth-year good !
