Vintage Baseball

Email: Edited: September 19, 2021, 2021

I'm happy to collect in any condition, though I do prefer cards that aren't too warped to fit comfortably into a binder page and heavily trimmed cards will likely be upgraded. My ultimate goal is to complete a run of 1948-55 Bowman and 1951-79 Topps, though a number of the cards from these sets are probably starting to get out of my price range. All lists are "Need" lists unless otherwise noted. I'm happy to talk about helping with shipping costs for boxes or larger mailings, as it can be expensive to send to Canada.

See below for my vintage baseball lists - Pre-War is on this page and more recent vintage is on sub-pages, separated by brand. Look for the arrow beside "Vintage Baseball" to find the subpages.


I'm not seriously collecting this (yet) but will pick one up every now and then if the mood strikes. I have no preference on backs - any will do. Low priority.

Have: Abbaticchio (Brown Sleeves), Arellanes, Armbruster, Egan, Ferris, Goode, O'Hara (St. Louis), Schirm, Thomas

1935 Goudey 4-in-1

I HAVE: Waner/Bush/Hoyt/Waner - any condition, any backs
