Early Reading Material about Sports Cards

By Ed Kobak

It is good to be back with SCD. I’m not referring to being a writer, which is great, but as a SCD subscriber. After nearly two years away due to travels in Asia, I re-subscribed to SCD last May.

A lot has changed with SCD since I last was a subscriber back in 2009. Since that time, SCD has gone to being a bi-weekly publication instead of a weekly, which I actually like better, as there is more content in the pages of SCD when it hits my mailbox, as I just missed too many issues of SCD with my travels when it was a weekly.

As with the declining newspaper industry, losing readers to the Internet through online news sites, sports hobby publications over recent years have been hit hard, not only losing readers and advertisers to online auctions sites, but worse – simply seeing their printing presses go silent into the night.

Every facet of our great hobby has had to adjust to the Internet, from sports hobby publications still alive today, to the national convention, local sports collecting shows, hobby dealers and sports card shops, card manufacturers and suppliers, as well as the everyday collector. Everyone has changed with the times. You had to, or you were gone.

In as much as the sports collecting hobby has changed over the years, so has SCD over that time, unlike most other publications of this era that have long since ceased publication. Gone are the days of monthly sports hobby publications of the past decades. All of this leads me to one important topic – the sports hobby papers of the past and how they brought us to where we are today.

Taking a nostalgic look into our hobby’s past years and in particular, into our hobby’s sports collecting publication’s of the past, it was a great era in time.

I first began sports collecting in 1965, long, long before the advent of the Internet, when the only link to other collectors was either trading with your buddy down the street, through the mail with other collectors and hobby dealers (who were usually everyday collectors themselves), as well as reading sports collecting news through the sports hobby publications of the day.

Following my college days in the late 1970s, I was lucky enough to experience my first sports card show at the “eastern national” convention outside of Philadelphia. I later visited early sports card shows in St. Louis and Detroit, visiting with the pioneers of the hobby (who then were just your collector friends but had a little head start on you in years), such as Frank Nagy, Bill Gradzewicz, Bob Jaspersen and others whom I had only known through the mail, all due to my link to the sports collecting world through those very sports hobby publications.

I know exactly when my interest was piqued with collecting baseball cards back then – when I saw my friend Jimmy thumbing through a shoebox of his cards in his parent’s driveway that summer – but I can not recall how it came about to read my first sports hobby publication, The Sports Hobbyist. I don’t know if it was from maybe seeing their ad in The Sporting News or maybe an issue of Boy’s Life, but however I was led to them, it changed my life forever.

I do remember my first issue of The Sports Hobbyist in 1965 came with several baseball tobacco cards simply for being a new subscriber. I was hooked.

These early sports hobby publications and the collectors who were their publishers and editors, along with their subscribers, were the ones who formed our hobby from the early stages to what it is today. They were the early pioneers of our hobby. Being a subscriber to The Sports Hobbyist led me to these pioneers on a more personal level, through buying and trading with them.

Long before I read my first issue of The Sports Hobbyist, hobby pioneer Jefferson Burdick had published Card Collector’s Bulletin (CCB), which began in the 1930s. CCB was the first hobby publication. CCB was later edited by Charles Bray in the late 1940s and continued through the 1960s. Later, in 1958, Gordon B. Taylor began publishing Card Comments. Finding old issues of these early sports hobby papers are extremely rare and will set you back a few pennies. The wealth of information in these publications from hobby pioneers Burdick, Bray, Lionel Carter, Bob Solon and others is a step back in time to the beginnings of our hobby.

The Ball Card Collector was another paper in the early years, same for Sports Collector’s Journal, which traces its roots back to 1968.

The Sports Hobbyist
The Sports Hobbyist (TSH) began its first issue in May 1956 with subscription rates being $1 for the year for the bi-monthly publication. Charles Brooks of Detroit was one of its first publishers and editors, later being published by L.A. Isenberg of Dorsey, Ill., who also ran a sports mimeograph service. In 1962, Frank Nagy of Detroit took over running TSH. Some of the early contributors to TSH were longtime Tigers announcer Ernie Harwell, who wrote a column on baseball guides and books. Longtime collector Lionel Carter, Charles “Buck” Barker, Preston D. Orem, Frank Nagy, Bob Thing, Mike Anderson, John Sullivan, Gene Angeley, Bill White and Julian White were early contributors, along with autograph guru, Jeffrey Morey, who wrote a shared article with Barker and two others on Philadelphia All-Time All-Stars (and K.C., too). I loved the column called My Hobby Collection, which shared the thoughts a collector when he began collecting in 1933!

Some of the early articles featured the All American Football Conference (AAFC) by Gene Angeley, the phantom Continental League of Baseball that was to begin in 1960 with teams in New York, Toronto, Buffalo, Denver and other cities without major league teams. Other article subjects were on The Ramblings on Cartophily, a wonderful article by Carter on the Delong cards, Barker’s article on Honus & Tobacco, Early History of Cigarette Cards by Mr. Orem, wonderful articles and checklists of Salada-Junket coins, Tarzan Bread, Glendale Meats by Frank Nagy along with Nagy’s monthly auctions, which is how I came to know Frank.

The classifieds were wonderful snippets of collectors and their card collections. Early advertisers were Wirt Gammon, James Elder, George Husby, Steve Vanco, along with Nagy, Morey, Barker, Harwell selling his early Reach and Spalding guides and early World Series and All-Star programs, and Charles Brooks selling The Card Collector’s Catalog and Dormand postcards for 10 cents each. You could also find the ADCO Sports Book Exchange in Los Angeles, run by the late Goodie Goldfaden, along with others over the years. It was literally a Who’s Who of the early pioneers of our hobby selling some amazing card sets and sports memorabilia. It was the place to pick up a complete set of 1948 Bowmans for $8, a set of 1951 Topps Blue and Red series for $12 or a set of 1952 Red Man for $10! It’s where you could buy 50 different sports matchcovers from baseball, football and hockey for only $6, all offered in the classifieds with so much more!

The News Mart section of TSH was another favorite section I always read. Where else could you learn that Bob Jaspersen was starting up his sports hobby publication, Sport Fan? Where else could you find information on joining The Association of Sports Collectors, or Charles Brook and Bob Jaspersen’s question to readers on whether anyone was interested in attending a convention for sports collectors, which later evolved into the early Detroit card shows. Frank Powell was inquiring whether collectors would pay $50 per week “to enjoy your hobby at a retreat just for hobbyists.” He envisioned a year-round retreat for all hobbies. I wonder how that went over with collector’s wives?

It was also where I read that on July 21, 1960, (I collected back issues of these papers) there was a Sports Collectors Day held in St Louis with collectors attending the Cards-Phillies game that day with a dinner in the evening at Stan Musial’s Restaurant.
These were the early formative days of our hobby, and I was reading and living it through the pages of TSH, which I believe had its final edition in 1971, at least that is the final copy that I have in my collection.

One of my favorites about TSH was its cover page chocked with black-and-white photos of Bob Pettit, Bill Skowron, Yogi Berra, Early Wynn and others, along with wonderful photos of cards from the Hassan Triple Folders, Glendale Meats and Tarzan Bread sets that adorned the front cover.

The Trader Speaks
I was also a subscriber to Bob Jaspersen’s Sport Fan, which if I recall, was a wonderful bi-monthly paper devoid of photos but with a wealth of collecting information and articles, all from another great pioneer of our hobby.

In 1968, Dan Dischley put Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y., on sports collector’s maps with The Trader Speaks (TTS). TTS was a serious monthly publication for the advanced collector. Now, I was not anything close to being an advanced or veteran collector by the time I subscribed to TTS in the early 1970s, when I was biding my time between junior and senior high school, earning just enough dollars from shoveling neighbors walkways and drives in the winter and mowing lawns in the summer to support my collecting habit.

TTS was a wonderful hobby paper with articles by Bill Haber on the Seattle Popcorn sets, articles and cover photos of cards from the 1910 Tip Top Bread set. The T-222 Fatima cigarette cards were featured on another cover and article in the August 1979 issue. A cover photo and article on Old Judge cigarette cards was in an early 1980 issue. So many of the old and rare card sets were covered in TTS, the closest I would ever come to these cards. Articles by Neil Sussman, Colin Sinclair, Lew Lipset, Jack Smalling and other great collectors/writers of the time graced the pages of TTS.
Dan Dischley was a police officer by day who ran TTS from the beginning until he sold it in 1983 to Krause Publications, the parent company of SCD at the time. The last issue of TTS was in March 1984.

Sports Scoop, SCD
The 1970s-80s was a wonderful era for sports hobby papers. The early-to-mid-1970s saw two other great papers crank out monthly editions. Sports Scoop popped up from the Pacific Northwest. John Stommen put Milan, Mich., on the map when he started printing SCD, years before Krause Publications bought out the Stommen family.
Sports Scoop began a 20-issue lifespan in 1973 until its demise with its final edition in October 1974, when Earl Averill was featured on the front cover with the words “1975 Hall of Fame?”

Jeff Morey found his way from The Sport Hobbyist to the pages of Sports Scoop with his column on autographs. Other writers and contributors were Mike Aronstein (co-founder of TCMA Cards), Don Steinbach, Patrick Quinn, Larry Fritsch, Charles Buck Barker, George Husby, George Brace, pubs specialist Allen (Murf) Denny with his column on football guides and checklists, Frank Caruso with his column Coast News and articles on early PCL sets and Sonics Shur Fresh Bread cards and Lloyd Toerpe with The Auction Game.

Other regular writers were Victor Luhrs, Steve Mitchell and Ron Greenwood, as well as Keith Olbermann with his column News from New York, which was penned long before his days with ESPN and MSNBC. I actually bought some cards from Keith back in the ’70s when he lived in Hastings-on-the-Hudson.

Lew Lipset once referred to Sports Scoop as “arguably the hobby’s best early magazine,” and he was right. Wonderful photos of Babe Ruth, Averill and other immortals graced the front cover of each issue, with a wealth of collector information on the inside pages.

Collector’s Quarterly & others
Following the demise of Sports Scoop in 1974, Collector’s Quarterly made its entrance with its premier issue in the winter of 1975, taking along some people from Sports Scoop. Aronstein of TCMA fame was the publisher, Olbermann was the editor, cartoonist Robert Laughlin of Fleer and Laughlin card fame was the art director. The premier issue included 18 cards from the SSPC set. Writers included Bill Madden, Ted Taylor, Bert Randolph Sugar, autograph guru Jeffrey Morey, George Lyons and Ron Greenwood, among others.

One issue featured a cover story on “The Uniform Scandal, Probably the Greatest Rip-off in Hobby History.” Were the counterfeit Pete Rose rookie card and Star Card Co. scandals not making news then? Maybe card counterfeiting came along later. Collector’s Quarterly was around for a cup of coffee in 1975 and 1976, but I’m not sure if it lasted beyond that.

In 1975, Sports Collector’s News, produced in Deer Park, Wis., made its mark, albeit, short-lived. In 1976, the National Sports Collector out of Maryland came out with its first issue. The second issue was delayed (not sure if it was ever published), then a third issue was printed. And then it was gone.

There were others.

Toward the end of the 1970s-80s, SCD, along with The Trader Speaks, were the main hobby publications of the day.

There were others in the 1970s, but there were more into specialized hobby interests, such as The Hockey Forum out of Sherbrooke, Quebec, run by Andrew Pywowczyk of Cartophilium, a major hockey dealer during its heyday. Cartophilium also published the Hockey Checklist Guide; both were nice publications that were limited to one year.
The 1980s saw the likes of Baseball Card News, as well as Baseball Hobby News by Frank and Vivian Barning in San Diego that began a 12-year run in 1982. Short-run hobby publications such as Baseball Hobby Card Report in 1982, with Dale Murphy of the Braves on one of its covers, and Sports Collecting Confidential in 1985 and 1986, also appeared during this time.

There were also specialty collector-oriented papers such as The Soccer Collector; Sked Collectors Monthly; Uniformity, run by uniform collector Dave Miedema; Boxing Collectors News; and The Olympin Collector (based on Olympic pin collecting); along with England’s Football Programme Monthly and The Autograph Collector’s Magazine, which began in 1986.

Jeffrey Morey’s The Autograph Review has been long running. Lew Lipset published Old Judge. Most were more like newsletters but were fun to read. A couple of these are still around today!

Collecting in the late 1980s, 1990s
Tuff Stuff magazine out of Richmond, Va., joined the ranks (another Krause acquisition later on) as we head into the later 1980s and 1990s. Sports Card Trader came around in 1990 for a short run.

Around the early 1990s came Alan Kaye’s Sports Card News & Price Guides that included free cards on Nolan Ryan, Hank Aaron, Jerry Rice, Sergei Federov, Trevor Linden, Alonzo Mourning and others, designed to entice subscribers as this was the era of the promo card rage.

Another great publication of its time was Baseball Cards Magazine, which began sometime in the early 1990s. This was a wonderful hobby magazine full of great articles from great writers on cards, player interviews and hobby information with fantastic price guides in most issues. The article on the Topps vs. Fleer battle was one of my favorites.
The Beckett publications, with their monthly magazine/price guides for baseball, basketball, football and hockey, were a major sports hobby player. They made their impact on collectors from the early 1990s through today.

In March 1995, along came Vintage & Classic Baseball Collector, “The Magazine for the Serious Collector of Baseball Items,” with vintage collector/writers Lew Lipset, Barry Sloate, Judson Hamlin, Mark Rucker and Mark Macrae offering wonderful photos and articles on Obaks, Cabinets and 19th-century tobacco cards and baseball in general. Vintage & Classic Baseball Collector ended a run of 38 issues in June 2004. For me, that magazine was like a later version of The Trader Speaks with its veteran collector/writers. This was a great opportunity for younger and less advanced collectors to get a whiff of the early years of baseball and its cards.

Following Baseball Collector, along came another vintage publication named Old Cardboard, “Your Information Source for Vintage Baseball Cards,” with its inaugural issue in the fall of 2004, ending its 22-issue run in the spring of 2010. The editor was Lyman Hardeman. Several of the same writers that were in VCBC, such as Mark Macrae, John Esch and George Vrechek wrote for Old Cardboard.

One publication north of the border that began in the late 1990s was Canadian Sportscard Collector based out of St. Catharines, Ontario, later shortening the name to Canadian Sports Collector, which was run by Morris Media, the publishers of The Charlton Hockey Guide. CSC, which was a monthly, was a fabulous sports hobby publication that rivaled any hobby paper in the states with its content, quality writers, beautiful glossy color cover photos and great checklists on hockey and CFL cards, along with a quarterly supplement that included a great non-sport card price guide.
CSC ceased publication in the mid-2000s, never really losing the stigmatism of a Canadian hockey hobby paper. This was an amazing hobby paper that many American collectors never knew was in existence. I was sad to see them, go as it gave me a Canadiana aspect to the hobby.

Since the demise of CSC, Canada has two new sports hobby magazines with The Insider’s Edge from Hobby Insider, which covers all aspects of the sports card world and even has news from the non-sports card sector. Their other national publication is The Want List, Canada’s sports memorabilia magazine that focuses on the rabid hockey craze. Both were in production this past winter.

On the foreign front, the current notable is Card Collector’s News, published by the London Cigarette Card Co., which used to print under the long title of The Cigarette Card News & Trade Card Chronicle. It has been published monthly since 1933. Another long-running English collecting paper has been Cartophilic Notes & News, put out by the Cartophilic Society of Great Britain.

Another English publication was Card Times. A recent review of the publication’s website doesn’t show updates since 2005. The Cartophilic Society of New Zealand publishes its quarterly Card Lines to all members and covers a wide range of card collecting.

A few specialty collecting papers and magazines still exist today. The Journal of Sport Philately averages 36 pages an issue and has been long-running. The Rathkamp Matchcover Society still issues its paper to members.

On the non-sport side of card collecting are the still-active Non Sport Update Magazine and Les Davis’ The Wrapper, as well as Paper Collector’s Marketplace which covers all sorts of ephemera. There are a couple others still hanging around.

All of this brings us back to SCD, which is still very active and has been around since the 1974. With the mainstream sports collecting hobby turning to the Internet nowadays, there are many of us that still are sort of old school and enjoy receiving our sports hobby news via print form that arrives in our mailboxes.

Final notes
Another great way to relive our rich history of sports memorabilia collecting is to collect old copies of regional and national sports collector convention programs. A wealth of information on card pricing and collectors can be found in these programs. Old dealer catalogs from Bruce Yeko’s Wholesale Card Co. and the Card Collector’s Co. out of Franklin, N.Y., are still floating around and pop up once in a while. It is fun to see the card prices from these early catalogs and convention programs.

Many old sports collecting magazines, especially early issues of SCD and The Trader Speaks, with a smattering of Sports Scoop, can be found in online auctions with listing prices in the $5-$15 range per issue.

Another fun collectible is the old sports collectors almanacs and price guides that listed directories of collectors, along with dealer and collector ads.

John Stommen of the original SCD fame came out with The Sports Collector’s Yearbook by Stommen and Dan Even. I have copies from 1980 and 1981, but I’m not sure how many years these were issued.

In 1967, the Directory of Sports Collectors was issued by JFC Publishing – a wealth of information on old collectors. Irv Lerner’s Who’s Who in Card Collecting, which began in 1970, is also loaded with early collector data. The Sports Collector’s Bible by Bert Randolph Sugar is another great book. I still have my 1975 first edition. The later Beckett guides are chock full of hobby information from the 1980s.

You can find these, along with back copies of sports hobby magazines from decades past, on the Internet and through collectors and dealers who have a dusty stack somewhere on their shelves in the back room. Check with older card shops that you frequent.

Researching the past history and the pioneers of our great hobby is a wonderful way to keep the future of sports collecting alive and healthy today.

Ranking the worst ones

And knowing, as another 1980s collecting staple told us, is half the battle. Make no mistake, the companies are still producing lots of cards, but they’re diversified. Instead of just one set into the 1980s, then a couple offerings a year in the 1990s, Topps has roughly 50 different baseball products, including hobby exclusive/retail exclusive variations. Panini this year has plans for 37 NFL offerings, 30 NBA — Panini owns the exclusive license with both the NBA and NFL — 11 MLBPA, 11 college/draft (six football, five basketball), seven soccer and four NASCAR. 

It’s fair to ask, of course, whether that’s too much, too.

“It reminds me a little of that tipping point, like in 1993 or ’94, where there were so many different manufacturers and everybody was trying to cash in,” Bradley said. “Now, you spend so much on a box and just hope you get your money’s worth. And I get that it’s fun and very lottery ticket-ish, but there’s so many interesting dynamics happening. 

“People say, ‘Well, it’s not happening now because of PSA and Beckett grading and parallels and autos and all that stuff. But if every other card has a 1/1 and 1/10 and 1/20 and 1/30 and 1/50 and 1/70, how scarce, really, are a lot of those things?”

What’s next? 

While the industry has boomed in recent months, it hasn't been without headaches. The pandemic led to shelter-in-place orders across the country, including Texas, where a third-party facility that both Topps and Panini to print cards use was shut down for an extended period. So even though development continued, production was halted. 

Topps’ popular Allen & Ginter product, for example, was delayed about six weeks from its normal late-July release. Other products were delayed longer, some hardly at all.

“While there was shifting release dates and some shifting in logistics and production challenges we had to get through, we’re now pretty much back on track,” Kless said. 

Panini had issues, too, of course, and not just related to printing. The company has been the NBA’s exclusive trading card for a decade now, and pauses in the NBA schedule — for example, the NBA Draft, which was originally scheduled for June 25 but pushed back to Nov. 18 — threw a wrench into plans. 

“Usually our first NBA product around this rookie class would be coming out in October, but that’s not the case,” Howarth said. “It’ll probably be December.”

One thing I wanted to ask — knowing I probably wouldn’t get any secrets revealed — is how next year’s offerings would reflect the oddity of the 2020 season, specifically with baseball cards. To me, baseball cards have a chance to document a season in a way no other product/industry really can, and what historic season needs documenting more than 2020? Masks, neck gaiters, players in the stands during games and about a thousand other things. 

It’s a special opportunity for Topps, because 2021 is the company’s 70th anniversary and it still has the exclusive MLB license (Panini has an agreement with the MLBPA, which means they can use the players but not team names or logos). 

“So many people have come to us saying, ‘Oh, you need a cardboard cutout subset’ or things like that,” Kless said with a laugh. “There are so many unique ideas that have spurred from 2020 and the weird, though historic, season that this is. I personally don’t know exactly what the brand team is quite up to as far as planning for 2021, but they always get very creative, and 2020 is very much a part of Topps history, so being able to celebrate the 70th anniversary, I’m sure 2020 will be a part of that.”

'It has been absolutely insane': Trading card industry has boomed during pandemic

When the final frantic moments of the eBay auction closed on April 30, my offer of $104.55 was atop the bidding heap and I became the way-too-excited owner of two unopened boxes of baseball cards: 1982 Fleer and 1987 Donruss. 

Let’s jump ahead. The average asking price for the six similar boxes of 1982 Fleer listed on eBay as “buy it now” last week was $227 The average asking price of the 20 boxes of 1987 Donruss listed on eBay was $56.

I paid $105 for my two boxes. To purchase those same two boxes now would be roughly $283, a little less if you worked the eBay system.

So what happened between the end of April and the beginning of October to more than double the prices of those boxes? It’s not like Cal Ripken, Jr. — the prize rookie card in the 1982 Fleer set (I did find one!) — did anything to significantly up the value of those cards. And though the 1987 Donruss is packed with rookies — Bo Jackson, Barry Bonds, Barry Larkin, Will Clark and Greg Maddux — nothing particularly interesting happened with any of those guys in the past few months. 

You know the answer to that question, obviously: The coronavirus pandemic happened. People across the country — and the world — stayed home for days, weeks and months, and they looked for ways to pass the time without physically interacting with the outside world. There’s only so much Netflix a person can watch.

Old passions were rediscovered as people rummaged through basements or attics and dove headfirst into nostalgia, searching for happiness. A sizable segment of the population found its baseball/trading cards, and after thumbing through and sorting old collections, the fire ignited once again —  and people looked to add. 

And with that sudden influx of interest — and money — the trading card market exploded. 

“Sales numbers are the best that they have been in the past decade,” said Emily Kless, communications manager for Topps, who declined to offer specifics because Topps is a privately owned company. “It’s been an upward trend. Topps was coming off one of its best years in the past decade (in 2019). So while we do see this rekindled interest in baseball card collecting, we were coming off an incredibly strong year to begin with.”

Topps isn’t alone, of course. 

“It has been absolutely insane,” said Jason Howarth, vice president for Panini America. “We’ve been working and pushing in this direction for a while, and a whole bunch of events snowballed and built up some additional momentum that was already feeding into the market.

“The sales that are happening now at Walmart and Target right now, for August and September, are three times what we would expect during a holiday shopping season,” he said. “It’s crazy, what’s going on.” 

And if cards seem harder to find at your local big-box retailer this year, there might be a reason.

“We’ve heard stories of guys just sitting there waiting for them to put the product on the shelves, and literally it’s wiped out as soon as they finish putting it out," Howarth said.

But this summer hasn’t just been a boom for the big companies producing the cards. 

When I was a kid, I used to ride my bike up to Baseball Plus, the baseball card (plus!) shop in suburban St. Louis owned by Mark Schlemeier that also happened to be conveniently located next to a bowling alley (seriously, the “bowl a couple games then buy some baseball cards” days of my childhood were amazing). He switched locations years ago but Baseball Plus still is going strong, both in person and online. In fact, Schlemeier estimated that he saw a 250 percent overall increase in sales from May to August compared with an average year.

“The eBay sales were just an all-time high,” he said. “I did more in March-April-May than in some previous full years, combined, in dollars and volume and variety.”

The variety part — the “plus” — of that has been key this summer. Over the years, Schlemeier collected team and stadium-themed products, such as Lambeau Field puzzles, or Cubs vs. Cardinals checkers sets. Turns out, unique items were pretty popular purchases with people stuck at home looking to pass the time. And when they did venture out to the store during the pandemic?

“Early on, when somebody walked in the door, they were there for three minutes and would say something like, ‘Well, I came in for a box of Heritage but I don’t know when I’m going to get back out again, so you’d better give me two boxes of Heritage and another box of Topps Series I.’ So they were looking to spend $90 but because you didn’t know what was going to happen day to day, they’d buy a couple of boxes to tide them over,” Schlemeier said.

“As everything opened back up and people got more comfortable with going back out, the foot traffic steadily increased, and the sales were still there. They weren’t panic-buying, but they were still buying.”

Because by then, they were hooked all over again. 

“You put a pack in someone’s hand and it doesn’t matter whether you’re 4 years old or 40 years old,” Howarth said. “If you happen to find a player you love, or a team that you love, you’re ecstatic. That’s the power of the trading card, and the fact that people have been able to find that again and a piece of happiness and elation during this crazy time where you’re freaking out over everything, I’m glad this is a good distraction. I think that’s really cool.”

Back in the habit

So who are these people who kicked the market into overdrive this spring/summer? I wanted to know, so I asked folks on Twitter to contact me if they re-started (or just started) collecting during the pandemic. Not a perfect sample, of course, but it’s a start.

Not gonna lie, I was a bit overwhelmed by the response. Here are just a few examples of why people jumped back into the hobby.

LB Barnett, Colorado: “I was nostalgic after watching ’80s movies with my wife and kids two weeks in a row, so I vowed to clean out my 1980s toy collection in the basement. Along the way I re-discovered the cards I'd collected as a kid and I was hooked (again). … I never set out to add anything to my collection, but man was I wrong about that! I've found myself on set-builds, completing trades with folks from around the country, nearly every state. But, I also have a hankering for the 2020 Heritage set from Topps; it looks like my favorite hand-me-down set from my older brother, the 1971.”

Howard Megdal, New Jersey: “I never did get rid of my old cards, which I'd collected in earnest from 1986, when I was 6 years old and that first Glenn Wilson 1986 Topps stared up at me, through around 1992. And so when my daughter was born in 2010, I periodically bought her cards as well, but neither of us engaged. The quarantine period has given us both the chance to do just that. When we heard about box breaks, we watched one on a Saturday afternoon on YouTube, while a game was playing on TV. And we quickly came to the conclusion that it would be fun to try, and that between my experience covering the sport and her social media expertise, we could do it better. It's been such fun to plan with her, and get to see so many great cards, and then send them to people.”

Brendan Chella, New Hampshire: “I needed my sports fix and it gave me and my newly retired dad something to do. I was also liking that my two big teams (Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Indians) were relatively cheap. … I have done very well building up my PC of Bills players Devin Singletary, Zack Moss, and (more recently) Gabriel Davis and this year’s crop of Indians players (who mostly haven’t played) Yu Chang, Logan Allen, Bobby Bradley, and Aaron Civale. As a side effect of getting back in, I’ve done a lot of work doing Twitch broadcasts of my breaks and making clips of my reactions so the hobby has helped me learn a lot about streaming and basic video editing.”

And the influx of interest in the hobby has even benefitted those in need, too. This great story was sent in by Eric Hecker, who lives in Pennsylvania: “In April I noticed how excited people got with memorabilia breaks and how kind people were with RAKs (random acts of kindness). I work for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, fundraising is down this year so I saw an opportunity. From April-May, the hobby family came together and raised over $15K through a 32 item break we put together, other auctions, and straight donations.”

Some jumped back into the hobby for the "hobby" aspect, purely collecting for the love of collecting. The joy of opening packs and buying cards of their favorite players was worth the money spent, and the interactions with other collectors on social media was a welcome bonus, something that didn't exist when they collected as kids. Others saw investment opportunities as the market boomed right in front of them, played out on eBay. That aspect was a bit trickier.

The arrival of waves of collecting newcomers on the scene, most with cash in hand but many with little knowledge of what prices were “normal,” reinforced the truth that an item’s true value is determined only by what someone is willing to pay for it.

Let’s use Inception, a premium Topps product with a rookie/superstar-packed 100-card checklist, as an example. A box includes one pack with seven cards: one autograph or autograph relic and two base parallel cards, plus four standard cards. It retails for $75.  

“It’s a nice product, because you’re guaranteed an autograph,” Schlemeier said. “The parallel can be anywhere from an unnumbered green parallel to their whole litany of different colored, serial-numbered parallels. It’s a real thick card, a standard five-card thickness card.”

Here’s the key part of this equation: Inception was released to the public on March 20, eight days after the NBA shut down its regular season and MLB canceled the rest of spring training. In the market, the term “panic buying” quickly became a very real thing.  

Ronny Drake, whose involvement in the hobby expanded rapidly with newfound free time during the pandemic (including his own YouTube channel), knows this well. He bought two cases (16 boxes) of Inception on March 25 for $1,080 each, an average of $67.50 per box. Next time the same place had them available, less than a month later, the case price had shot up to $1,600. He passed at the higher price. 

"On the boxes I opened I just made my money back, I pulled a low number Dustin May auto/relic," Drake said. "On the breaks total I profited less than $100 ... The value just wasn’t there, for me or those who bought into my breaks."

On eBay, the Inception increase is even more extreme. Multiple boxes have sold for more than $170 in the past few months. The only two cases listed on eBay are marked at $2,900 and $2,639, and all 16 individual boxes are listed at $155 or more. 

Inception provided reasonable value at $75, Schlemeier told me, but at $170? Not so much, because you pretty much have hit a big autograph or a star/rookie numbered to 25 or less. And that’s the issue: Seasoned collectors know that just because a product is listed at a certain price on eBay doesn’t really mean it’s worth that much. But for those waves of folks back into the hobby in April, May and June, asking prices on eBay felt like established standards, especially because those newbies couldn’t physically go into stores or card shows and see what other options exist. 

Sales at baseball card stores such as Baseball Card Plus outside St. Louis have seen a boom in sales during the pandemic as people discover, or rediscover, the lure of the hobby.

And folks like Kevin Bradley, who lives in Austin, Texas, have taken a very analytical, often aggressive, approach after jumping back into the hobby. 

Bradley fell in love with collecting as a kid, with just a few magical trips to Ted’s Baseball Room in Houston. The card shop was set up like a baseball field, with green turf and foul poles at either side of the store, and Ted treated the kids who walked in with their allowances the same way he treated the adults with real money to spend. That meant everything to Bradley, a sometimes shy kid without a lot of confidence, and he even worked there for a few years, until he left for college. 

“Just about everything I accomplished in my professional life,” he said in a phone call last week, “I can trace back to that experience.” 

Ted Stokes died last year, which brought back memories of good days. And an extended period of traumatic, stressful events — including a terrifying one, when one of his daughters was diagnosed with cancer (but after four months of treatment was declared cancer-free in January) — left him looking for something to make him happy (in addition to his family, of course). He found trading cards again. 

He jumped in with both feet, even though he admittedly wasn’t sure what he was jumping into. The excitement was met with questions of discovery: What companies even make cards now in each sport? What is a parallel? What’s a numbered card? What does PSA stand for? What are box breaks? Why does everyone have their own YouTube channel? 

Bradley started by buying “a ton of” boxes, first from eBay and then from distributors when the reality of eBay “buy it now” pricing set in. The more he played around in the hobby with his precious free moments — he’s married with five kids — the more he moved toward buying individual cards, especially PSAs. 

He picked his players — Luke Doncic, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant in basketball, Patrick Mahomes, Dak Prescott and Kyler Murray in football and Juan Soto, Fernando Tatis and Ronald Acuña Jr. in baseball, to name a few — and went that route. To him, it was like a miniature stock market investing exercise. 

“This is the exact same thing, just on a smaller level, individual players that swing wildly, sometimes based on an individual game performance,” he said. “So there’s money to be made in there, but I don’t always have the time or patience. But longer term, guys like Mike Trout, Luka, Michael Jordan and LeBron James, they are Apple and Amazon and Microsoft, so why not do that? That’s much more fun. So I ask myself, ‘What do you want to invest and how?’”

And one of the answers to that question just might be this: Bradley has done the research and run the numbers on what it would take to open up his own version of Ted’s Baseball Room, maybe sometime in the spring of 2022, after he sees what happens with COVID and how the card market shakes out. 

“With what our family has been through in this past year, it’s kind of like, I don’t want to get to 60 or 70 or 80 and be like, ‘Dude, why didn’t you just take a shot at something that really would have made you happy?’ I don’t know if it’s COVID or just the point where I am in life where I just look back to what things made me happy as a kid,” he said “… I don’t have any regrets in my life, but I want to be happy, too, and this is just one of those things that does it for me. There are so many little parts: the organizational aspects, the investment aspects, the nostalgia aspects, the buying and selling that’s fun, just all of that.” 

And, really, it comes down to this: “I want to create that same magic for my kids that Ted created for me.”

Back to the future?

During our lengthy conversation, Howarth, the Panini VP, referenced the 1980s and early 1990s as what most feel are the “glory days” of collecting, but said what’s happening how is unprecedented. It’s also completely different than what was happening back then, the era of Junk Wax goodness.

Back then, everybody wanted baseball cards, so card companies met that demand by printing cards with reckless abandon and massively overproducing their one or two sets per year. It was great short-term — high sales and happy customers getting the players/teams they wanted from their packs (which were sealed with wax, hence the "junk wax" name that stuck)  — but eventually everyone realized there were literally tons of cards flooding the market, and prices came crashing down.

“In the 1980s, you thought, ‘If I hold onto this Bo Jackson Rated Rookie card, some day it’ll be worth real money,’” Howarth said. “Whereas now, you open up a pack and there are cards in there already worth real money.”

And, yeah, that "real money" is one hell of a draw. There is most certainly a gambling feel to opening most packs today; Schlemeier noted the hope of finding potential autographs/relics are akin to playing the slots in Vegas.  

“In 1990 you could buy a pack for 60 cents and get a Frank Thomas rookie out of it or a Ken Griffey Jr., and maybe get $2 or $3 for it,” he said. “But now, you can buy a pack of cards for $5 and get a card that’s worth thousands. And I’m talking thousands of dollars that afternoon on eBay.” 

“Early on (in the pandemic), when somebody walked in the door, they were there for three minutes and would say something like, ‘Well, I came in for a box of Heritage but I don’t know when I’m going to get back out again, so you’d better give me two boxes of Heritage and another box of Topps Series I,’” said Mark Schlemeier, owner of Baseball Plus outside St. Louis. 

That’s certainly a new element. So with the popularity of trading cards soaring, it’s fair to ask what those in the industry are doing to avoid making the same mistakes — mashing the “print” button over and over and over — in an attempt to cash in as much as possible. 

“I think there’s a couple different things,” Howarth said. “One, we’re obviously very cognizant of what transpired in the ’80s as a company, and the mistakes that other manufacturers made during that time.”

1894 football card featuring Harvard University player John Dunlop

Burdick's immense collection, numbering over three hundred thousand objects, includes all types of sports cards ranging from football, boxing, basketball, baseball, and swimming, to equestrian sports and sailing.

Left: Issued by P.H. Mayo & Brother, Richmond, Virginia (American). John Dunlop, Harvard University, from the College Football Stars series (N302) for Mayo's Cut Plug Tobacco, 1894. Commercial lithograph; Sheet: 2 13/16 x 1 5/8 in. (7.2 x 4.2 cm). The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Jefferson R. Burdick Collection, Gift of Jefferson R. Burdick (63.350.222.302.33)

The collection facilitates the telling of myriad histories about American sports, life, and culture. With an extensive collection of football cards, the rise of the sport and its dominance in printed media toward the middle of the twentieth century can be demonstrated in a unique way. The earliest series of football cards in Burdick's collection dates from 1894 and highlights players from the Ivy League's Yale, Harvard, and Princeton. Also present are the Leaf Gum and Bowman sets from 1948, which were the first cards produced after World War II and ushered in the modern era of football cards. The latest set collected by Burdick, while he was in the prints department of the Museum organizing and cataloguing his collection into their signature green albums, is Bazooka's first football issue from 1959, which includes Johnny Unitas and Ollie Matson.

(25.4 x 15.8 cm). The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Jefferson R. Burdick Collection, Gift of Jefferson R. Burdick (Burdick 327, R407-1.1)

Other stories about America can be told through the Burdick's sports cards, such as the ebb and flow in popularity of sports such as boxing—which dominated the collective consciousness at its height in the first decades of the twentieth century—or the role of women in sports and society at the turn of the century. "Sporting girls," as they were often called in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, emerged as a viable and even a lucrative category, despite being less frequently represented than actresses.

In 1887, the tobacco company Allen & Ginter produced a series of cards known as World's Champions that included the sharpshooter Annie Oakley. It followed quickly with female baseball players and cyclists, and other companies such as W. Duke and Sons, Liggett & Myers, and Pan Handle Scrap produced swimmers, gymnasts, and a series that offered "a sport for every girl." In these early days of female athleticism, the figures shown on these cards remained types rather than individuals, engaged in exercises and training but without the recognition given to their male counterparts in competitive and professional leagues.

Ranking the worst ones

And knowing, as another 1980s collecting staple told us, is half the battle. Make no mistake, the companies are still producing lots of cards, but they’re diversified. Instead of just one set into the 1980s, then a couple offerings a year in the 1990s, Topps has roughly 50 different baseball products, including hobby exclusive/retail exclusive variations. Panini this year has plans for 37 NFL offerings, 30 NBA — Panini owns the exclusive license with both the NBA and NFL — 11 MLBPA, 11 college/draft (six football, five basketball), seven soccer and four NASCAR. 

It’s fair to ask, of course, whether that’s too much, too.

“It reminds me a little of that tipping point, like in 1993 or ’94, where there were so many different manufacturers and everybody was trying to sports card stores in buffalo ny in,” Bradley said. “Now, you spend so much on a box and just hope you get your money’s worth. And I get that it’s fun and very lottery ticket-ish, but there’s so many interesting dynamics happening. 

“People say, ‘Well, it’s not happening now because of PSA and Beckett grading and parallels and autos and all that stuff. But if every other card has a 1/1 and 1/10 and 1/20 and 1/30 and 1/50 and 1/70, how scarce, really, are a lot of those things?”

What’s next? 

While the industry has boomed in recent months, it hasn't been without headaches. The pandemic led to shelter-in-place orders across the country, including Texas, where a third-party facility that both Topps and Panini to print cards use was shut down for an extended period. So even though development continued, amazon prime hand sanitizer was halted. 

Topps’ popular Allen & Ginter product, for example, was delayed about six weeks from its normal late-July release. Other products were delayed longer, some hardly at all.

“While there was shifting release dates and some shifting in logistics and production challenges we had to get through, we’re now pretty much back on track,” Kless said. 

Panini had issues, too, of course, and not just related to printing. The company has been the NBA’s exclusive trading card for a decade now, and pauses in the NBA schedule — for example, the NBA Draft, which was originally scheduled for June 25 but pushed back to Nov. 18 — threw a wrench into plans. 

“Usually our first NBA product around this rookie class would be coming out in October, but that’s not the case,” Howarth said. “It’ll probably be December.”

One thing I wanted to ask — knowing I probably wouldn’t get any secrets revealed — is how next year’s offerings would reflect the oddity of the 2020 season, specifically with baseball cards. To me, baseball cards have a chance to document a season in a way no other product/industry really can, and what historic season needs documenting more than 2020? Masks, neck gaiters, players in the stands during games and about a thousand other things. 

It’s a special opportunity for Topps, because 2021 is the company’s 70th anniversary and it still has the exclusive MLB license (Panini has an agreement with the MLBPA, which means they can use the players but not team names or logos). 

“So many people have come to us saying, ‘Oh, you need a cardboard cutout subset’ or things like that,” Kless said with a laugh. “There are so many unique ideas that have spurred from 2020 and the weird, though historic, season that this is. I personally don’t know exactly what the brand team is quite up to as far as planning for 2021, but they always get very creative, and 2020 is very much a part of Topps history, so being able to celebrate the 70th anniversary, I’m sure 2020 will be a part of that.”

I ordered a Joe Montana autographed jersey as Christmas gift from Sports Vault and it came in water damaged from the postal service on December 22nd and was told by the driver that I needed to file a claim. I e-mailed Sports Vault  customer service just to vent and to my amazement, I had another jersey delivered on Christmas Eve. I have never had my expectations exceeded by a service company like that before

Early Reading Material about Sports Cards

By Ed Kobak

It is good to be back with SCD. I’m not referring to being a writer, which is great, but as a SCD subscriber. After nearly two years away due to travels in Asia, I re-subscribed to SCD last May.

A lot has changed with SCD since I last was a subscriber back in 2009. Since that time, SCD has gone to being a bi-weekly publication instead of a weekly, which I actually like better, as there is more content in the pages of SCD when it hits my mailbox, as I just missed too many issues of SCD with my travels when it was a weekly.

As with the declining newspaper industry, losing readers to the Internet through online news sites, sports hobby publications over recent years have been hit hard, not only losing readers chase college checking international fees advertisers to online auctions sites, but worse – simply seeing their printing presses go silent into the night.

Every facet of our great hobby has had to adjust to the Internet, from sports hobby publications still alive today, to the national convention, local sports collecting shows, hobby dealers and sports card shops, card manufacturers and suppliers, as well as the everyday collector. Everyone has changed with the times. You had to, or you were gone.

In as much as the sports collecting hobby has changed over the years, so has SCD over that time, unlike most other publications of this era that have long since ceased publication. Gone are the days of monthly sports hobby publications of the past decades. All of this leads me to one important topic – the sports hobby papers of the past and how they brought us to where we are today.

Taking a nostalgic look into our hobby’s past years and in particular, into our hobby’s sports collecting publication’s of the past, it was a great era in time.

I first began sports collecting in 1965, long, long before the advent of the Internet, when the only link to other collectors was either trading with your buddy down the street, through the mail with other collectors and hobby dealers (who were usually everyday collectors themselves), as well as reading sports collecting news through the sports hobby publications of the day.

Following my college days in the late 1970s, I was lucky enough to experience my first sports card show at the “eastern national” convention outside of Philadelphia. I later visited early sports card shows in St. Louis and Detroit, visiting with the pioneers of the hobby (who then were just your collector friends but had a little head start on you in west valley city park, such as Frank Nagy, Bill Gradzewicz, Bob Jaspersen and others whom I had only known through the mail, all due to my link to the sports collecting world through those very sports hobby publications.

I know exactly when my interest was piqued with collecting baseball cards back then – when I saw my friend Jimmy thumbing through a shoebox of his cards in his parent’s driveway that summer – but I can not recall how it came about to read my first sports hobby publication, The Sports Hobbyist. I don’t know if it was from maybe seeing their ad in The Sporting News or maybe an issue of Boy’s Life, but however I was sports card stores in buffalo ny to them, it changed my life forever.

I do remember my first issue of The Sports Hobbyist in 1965 came with several baseball tobacco cards simply for being a new subscriber. I was hooked.

These early sports hobby publications and the collectors who were their publishers and editors, along with their subscribers, were the ones who formed our hobby from the early stages to what it is today. They were the early pioneers of our hobby. Being a subscriber to The Sports Hobbyist led me to these pioneers on a more personal level, through buying and trading with them.

Long before I read my first issue of The Sports Hobbyist, hobby pioneer Jefferson Burdick had published Card Collector’s Bulletin (CCB), which began in the 1930s. CCB was the first hobby publication. CCB was later edited by Charles Bray in the late 1940s and continued through the 1960s. Later, in 1958, Gordon B. Taylor began publishing Card Comments. Finding old issues of these early sports hobby papers are extremely rare and will set you back a few pennies. The wealth of information in these publications from hobby pioneers Burdick, Bray, Lionel Carter, Bob Solon and others is a step back in time to the beginnings of our hobby.

The Ball Card Collector was another paper in the early years, same for Sports Collector’s Journal, which traces its roots back to 1968.

The Sports Hobbyist
The Sports Hobbyist (TSH) began its first issue in May 1956 with subscription rates being $1 for the year for the bi-monthly publication. Charles Brooks of Detroit was one of its first publishers and editors, later being published by L.A. Isenberg of Dorsey, Ill., who also ran a sports mimeograph service. In 1962, Frank Nagy of Detroit took over running TSH. Some of the early contributors to TSH were longtime Tigers announcer Ernie Harwell, who wrote a column on baseball guides and books. Longtime collector Lionel Carter, Charles “Buck” Barker, Preston D. Orem, Frank Nagy, Bob Thing, Mike Anderson, John Sullivan, Gene Angeley, Bill White and Julian White were early contributors, along with autograph guru, Jeffrey Morey, who wrote a shared article with Barker and two others on Philadelphia All-Time All-Stars (and K.C., too). I loved the column called My Hobby Collection, which shared the thoughts a collector when he began collecting in 1933!

Some of the early jim edmonds biography featured the All American Football Conference (AAFC) by Gene Angeley, the phantom Continental League of Baseball that was to begin in 1960 with teams in New York, Toronto, Buffalo, Denver and other cities without major league teams. Other article subjects were on The Ramblings on Cartophily, a wonderful article by Carter on the Delong cards, Barker’s article on Honus & Tobacco, Early History of Cigarette Cards by Mr. Orem, wonderful articles and checklists of Salada-Junket coins, Tarzan Bread, Glendale Meats by Frank Nagy along with Nagy’s monthly auctions, which is how I came to know Frank.

The classifieds were wonderful snippets of collectors and their card collections. Early advertisers were Wirt Gammon, James Elder, George Husby, Steve Vanco, along with Nagy, Morey, Barker, Harwell selling his early Reach and Spalding guides and early World Series and All-Star programs, and Charles Brooks selling The Card Collector’s Catalog and Dormand postcards for 10 cents each. You could also find the ADCO Sports Book Exchange in Los Angeles, run by the late Goodie Goldfaden, along with others over the years. It was literally a Who’s Who of the early pioneers of our hobby selling some amazing card sets and sports memorabilia. It was the place to pick up a complete set of 1948 Bowmans for $8, a set of 1951 Topps Blue and Red series for $12 or a set of 1952 Red Man for $10! It’s where you could buy 50 different sports matchcovers from baseball, football and hockey for only $6, all offered in the classifieds with so much more!

The News Mart section of TSH was another favorite section I always read. Where else could you learn that Bob Jaspersen was starting up his sports hobby publication, Sport Fan? Where else could you find information on joining The Association of Sports Collectors, or Charles Brook and Bob Jaspersen’s question to readers on whether anyone was interested in attending a convention for sports collectors, which later evolved into the early Detroit card shows. Frank Powell was inquiring whether collectors would pay $50 per week “to enjoy your hobby at a retreat just for hobbyists.” He envisioned a year-round retreat for all hobbies. I wonder how that went over with collector’s wives?

It was also where I read that on July 21, 1960, (I collected back issues of these papers) there was a Sports Collectors Day held in St Louis with collectors attending the Cards-Phillies game that day with a dinner in the evening at Stan Musial’s Restaurant.
These were the early formative days of our hobby, and I was reading and living it through the pages of TSH, which I believe had its final edition in 1971, at least that is the final copy that I have in my collection.

One of my favorites about TSH was its cover page chocked with black-and-white photos of Bob Pettit, Bill Skowron, Yogi Berra, Early Wynn and others, along with wonderful photos of cards from the Hassan Triple Folders, Glendale Meats and Tarzan Bread sets that adorned the front cover.

The Trader Speaks
I was also a subscriber to Bob Jaspersen’s Sport Fan, which if I recall, was a wonderful bi-monthly paper devoid of photos but with a wealth of collecting information and articles, all from another great pioneer of bb chord piano finger position hobby.

In 1968, Dan Dischley put Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y., on sports collector’s maps with The Trader Speaks (TTS). TTS was a serious monthly publication for the advanced collector. Now, I was not anything close to being an advanced or veteran collector by the time I subscribed to TTS in the early 1970s, when I was biding my time between junior and senior high school, earning just enough dollars from shoveling neighbors walkways and drives in the winter and mowing lawns in the summer to support my collecting habit.

TTS was a wonderful hobby paper with articles by Bill Haber on the Seattle Popcorn sets, articles and cover photos of cards from the 1910 Tip Top Bread set. The T-222 Fatima cigarette cards were featured on another cover and article in the August 1979 issue. A cover photo and article on Old Judge cigarette cards was in an early 1980 issue. So many of the old and rare card sets were covered in TTS, the closest I would ever come to these cards. Articles by Neil Sussman, Colin Sinclair, Lew Lipset, Jack Smalling and other great collectors/writers of the time graced the pages of TTS.
Dan Dischley was best high yield savings rates police officer by day who ran TTS from the beginning until he sold it in 1983 to Krause Publications, the parent company of SCD at the time. The last issue of TTS was in March 1984.

Sports Scoop, SCD
The 1970s-80s was a wonderful era for sports hobby papers. The early-to-mid-1970s saw two other great papers crank out monthly editions. Sports Scoop popped up from the Pacific Northwest. John Stommen put Milan, Mich., on the map when he started printing SCD, years before Krause Publications bought out the Stommen family.
Sports Scoop began a 20-issue lifespan in 1973 until its demise with its final edition in October 1974, when Earl Averill was featured on the front cover with the words “1975 Hall of Fame?”

Jeff Morey found his way from The Sport Hobbyist to the pages of Sports Scoop with his column on autographs. Other writers and contributors were Mike Aronstein (co-founder of TCMA Cards), Don Steinbach, Patrick Quinn, Larry Fritsch, Charles Buck Barker, George Husby, George Brace, pubs specialist Allen (Murf) Denny with his column on football guides and checklists, Frank Caruso with his column Coast News and articles on early PCL sets and Sonics Shur Fresh Bread cards and Lloyd Toerpe with The Auction Game.

Other regular writers were Victor Luhrs, Steve Mitchell and Ron Greenwood, as well as Keith Olbermann with his column News from New York, which was penned long before his days with ESPN and MSNBC. I actually bought some cards from Keith back in the ’70s when he lived in Hastings-on-the-Hudson.

Lew Lipset once referred to Sports Scoop as “arguably the hobby’s best early magazine,” and he was right. Wonderful photos of Babe Ruth, Averill and other immortals graced the front cover of each issue, with a wealth of collector information on the inside pages.

Collector’s Quarterly & others
Following the demise of Sports Scoop in 1974, Collector’s Quarterly made its entrance with its premier issue in the winter of 1975, taking along some people from Sports Scoop. Aronstein of TCMA fame was the publisher, Olbermann was the editor, cartoonist Robert Laughlin of Fleer and Laughlin card fame was the art director. The premier issue included 18 cards from the SSPC set. Writers included Bill Madden, Ted Taylor, Bert Randolph Sugar, autograph guru Jeffrey Morey, George Lyons and Ron Greenwood, among others.

One issue featured a cover story on “The Uniform Scandal, Probably the Greatest Rip-off amazon a to z beta app Hobby History.” Were the counterfeit Pete Rose rookie card and Star Card Co. scandals not making news then? Maybe card counterfeiting came along later. Collector’s Quarterly was around for a cup of coffee in 1975 and 1976, but I’m not sure if it lasted beyond that.

In 1975, Sports Collector’s News, produced in Deer Park, Wis., made its mark, albeit, short-lived. In 1976, the National Sports Collector out of Maryland came out with its first issue. The second issue was delayed (not sure if it was ever published), then a third issue was printed. And then it was gone.

There were others.

Toward the end of the 1970s-80s, SCD, along with The Trader Speaks, were the main hobby publications of the day.

There were others in the 1970s, but there were more into specialized hobby interests, such as The Hockey Forum out of Sherbrooke, Quebec, run by Andrew Pywowczyk of Cartophilium, a major hockey dealer during its heyday. Cartophilium also published the Hockey Checklist Guide; both were nice publications that were limited to one year.
The 1980s saw the likes of Baseball Card News, as well as Baseball Hobby News by Frank and Vivian Barning in San Diego that began a 12-year run in 1982. Short-run hobby publications such as Baseball Hobby Card Report in 1982, with Dale Murphy of the Braves on one of its covers, and Sports Collecting Confidential in 1985 and 1986, also appeared during this time.

There were also specialty collector-oriented papers such as The Soccer Collector; Sked Collectors Monthly; Uniformity, run by uniform collector Dave Miedema; Boxing Collectors News; and The Olympin Collector (based on Olympic pin collecting); along with England’s Football Programme Monthly and The Autograph Collector’s Magazine, which began in 1986.

Jeffrey Morey’s The Autograph Review has been long running. Lew Lipset published Old Judge. Most were more like newsletters but were fun to read. A couple of these are still around today!

Collecting in the late 1980s, 1990s
Tuff Stuff magazine out of Richmond, Va., joined the ranks (another Krause acquisition later on) as we head into the later 1980s and 1990s. Sports Card Trader came around in 1990 for a short run.

Around the early 1990s came Alan Kaye’s Sports Card News & Price Guides that included free cards on Nolan Ryan, Hank Aaron, Jerry Rice, Sergei Federov, Trevor Linden, Alonzo Mourning and others, designed to entice subscribers as this was the era of the promo card rage.

Another great publication of its time was Baseball Cards Magazine, which began sometime in the early 1990s. This was a wonderful prudential com retirement gateway magazine full of great articles from great writers on cards, player interviews and hobby information with fantastic price guides in most issues. The article on the Topps vs. Fleer battle was one of my favorites.
The Beckett publications, with their monthly magazine/price guides for baseball, basketball, football and hockey, were a major sports hobby player. They made their impact on collectors from the early 1990s through today.

In March 1995, along came Vintage & Classic Baseball Collector, “The Magazine for the Serious Collector of Baseball Items,” with vintage collector/writers Lew Lipset, Barry Sloate, Judson Hamlin, Mark Rucker and Mark Macrae offering wonderful photos and articles on Obaks, Cabinets and 19th-century tobacco cards and baseball in general. Vintage & Classic Baseball Collector ended a run of 38 issues in June 2004. For me, that magazine was like a later version of The Trader Speaks with its veteran collector/writers. This was a great opportunity for younger and less advanced collectors to get a whiff of the early years of baseball and its cards.

Following Baseball Collector, along came another vintage publication named Old Cardboard, “Your Information Source for Vintage Baseball Cards,” with its inaugural issue in the fall of 2004, ending its 22-issue run in the spring of 2010. The editor was Lyman Hardeman. Several of the same writers that were in VCBC, such as Mark Macrae, John Esch and George Vrechek wrote for Old Cardboard.

One publication north of the border that began in the late 1990s was Canadian Sportscard Collector based out of St. Catharines, Ontario, later shortening the name to Canadian Sports Collector, which was run by Morris Media, the publishers of The Charlton Hockey Guide. CSC, which was a monthly, was a fabulous sports hobby publication that rivaled any hobby weather underground obx in the states with its content, quality writers, beautiful glossy color cover photos and great checklists on hockey and CFL cards, along with a quarterly supplement that included a great non-sport card price guide.
CSC ceased publication in the mid-2000s, never really losing the stigmatism of a Canadian hockey hobby paper. This was an amazing hobby paper that many American collectors never knew was in existence. I was sad to see them, go as it gave me a Canadiana aspect to the hobby.

Since the demise of CSC, Canada has two new sports hobby magazines with The Insider’s Edge from Hobby Insider, which covers all aspects of the sports card world and even has news from the non-sports card sector. Their other national publication is The Want List, Canada’s sports memorabilia magazine that focuses on the rabid hockey craze. Both were in production this past winter.

On the foreign front, the current notable is Card Collector’s News, published by the London Cigarette Card Co., which used to print under the long title of The Cigarette Card News & Trade Card Chronicle. It has been published monthly since 1933. Another long-running English collecting paper has been Cartophilic Notes & News, put out by the Cartophilic Society of Great Britain.

Another English publication was Card Times. A recent review of the publication’s website doesn’t show updates since 2005. The Cartophilic Society of New Zealand publishes its quarterly Card Lines to all members and covers a wide range of card collecting.

A few specialty collecting papers and magazines still exist today. The Journal of Sport Philately averages 36 pages an issue and has been long-running. The Rathkamp Matchcover Society still issues its paper to members.

On the non-sport side of card collecting are the still-active Non Sport Update Magazine and Les Davis’ The Wrapper, as well as Paper Collector’s Marketplace which covers all sorts of ephemera. There are a couple others still hanging around.

All of this brings us back to SCD, which is still very active and has been around since the 1974. With the mainstream sports collecting hobby turning to the Internet nowadays, there are many of us that still are sort of old school and enjoy receiving our sports hobby news via print form that arrives in our mailboxes.

Final notes
Another great way to relive our rich history of sports memorabilia collecting is to collect old copies of regional and national sports collector convention programs. A wealth of information on card pricing and collectors can be found in these programs. Old dealer catalogs from Bruce Yeko’s Wholesale Card Co. and the Card Collector’s Co. out of Franklin, N.Y., are still floating around and pop up once in a while. It is fun to see the card prices from these early catalogs and convention programs.

Many old sports collecting magazines, especially early issues of SCD and The Trader Speaks, with a smattering of Sports Scoop, can be found in online auctions with listing prices in the $5-$15 range per issue.

Another fun collectible is the old sports collectors almanacs and price guides that listed directories of collectors, along with dealer and collector ads.

John Stommen of the original SCD fame came out with The Sports Collector’s Yearbook by Stommen and Dan Even. I have copies from 1980 and 1981, but I’m not sure how many years these were issued.

In 1967, the Directory of Sports Collectors was issued by JFC Publishing – a wealth of information on old collectors. Irv Lerner’s Who’s Who in Card Collecting, which began in 1970, is also loaded with early collector data. The Sports Collector’s Bible by Bert Randolph Sugar is another sports card stores in buffalo ny book. I still have my 1975 first edition. The later Beckett guides are chock full of hobby information from the 1980s.

You can find these, along with back copies of sports hobby magazines from decades past, on the Internet and through collectors and dealers who have a dusty stack somewhere on their shelves in the back room. Check with older card shops that you frequent.

Researching the past history and the pioneers of our great hobby is a wonderful way to keep the future of sports collecting alive and healthy today.

I used this sports card distributor back when they were first starting out. They didn't even have a website and it was all done over the phone.

They have grown a bit and are a good source if you are on the east coast. They sometimes get exclusive autographs from Atlanta Braves players and other athletes.

This is a true distributor of cards and supplies - meaning you will need your states resale tax-ID number.

I actually met this Sports Card Distributor at the Las Vegas Sports Card Industry Summit in 2011. They are a great group of people that are working hard to get the best prices and information to you about products.

All the prices they quote you are what you pay, no COD or other fees. They also have Net 6 WEEK Payment plans. They also stock BCW Supplies at the same price as direct + free shipping if you order with boxes/cases.

Steel City on eBay

Similar to DA Card World and Blowout Cards, they aren't a true wholesale distributor. They will have products available at or around wholesale prices depending on the demand for the products.

A great option for both non-sports and traditional sports cards from all the top card makers.

You will need a state re-sale ID to order from this company directly. The prices are going to be similar to the distributors above. I have never worked with this company directly, however they update the website on a regular basis so its worth giving them a shot.

www.goldriverdist.com

Located in Rocklin, CA this is a good choice if you are on the west coast. I have confirmation that they have good prices from an online retailer who buys from them.

I remember these guys when I did business over a decade ago - so they have the experience and knowledge of the industry. Visit the website and give them a call to setup a distributor account.

www.upperdeck.com

Upper Deck is much like Topps in that you must be buying at large quantities in order to be eligible to buy directly from Upper Deck.

I've heard becoming a Diamond Dealer is similar to joining a club, the other members have to accept you. Kind of strange.  

I know they have restrictions on selling their product online so really this is only an option if you plan to open a popular sports card store. Upper Deck has a Diamond Dealers program you must apply for even if you are buying from distributors. 

www.blowoutcards.com

Similar to DA Card World and Steel City Collectibles, they are not true distributors. 

Blowout Cards eBay Store

Not a traditional sports card distributor, but does have interesting items including supplies.

Had at one point a full line of Topps factory sets dating back to the 1980's. Might be worth signing up for just to check out some prices.

www.universaldist.com

One of Canada's top distributors, you want to give them a call if you live north of the United States border.

They not only carry the full line of sport trading card boxes and cases, but also a ton of gaming and other type of products that sell well at the hobby shop level.

Sports Cards

1894 football card featuring Harvard University player John Dunlop

Burdick's immense collection, numbering over three hundred thousand objects, includes all types of sports cards ranging from football, boxing, basketball, baseball, and swimming, to equestrian sports and sailing.

Left: Issued by P.H. Mayo & Brother, Richmond, Virginia (American). John Dunlop, Harvard University, from the College Football Stars series (N302) for Mayo's Cut Plug Tobacco, 1894. Commercial lithograph; Sheet: 2 13/16 x 1 5/8 in. (7.2 x 4.2 cm). The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Jefferson R. Burdick Collection, Gift of Jefferson R. Burdick (63.350.222.302.33)

The collection facilitates the telling of myriad histories about American sports, life, and culture. With an extensive collection of football cards, the rise of the sport and its dominance in printed media toward the middle of the twentieth century can be demonstrated in a unique way. The earliest series of football cards in Burdick's collection dates from 1894 and highlights players from the Ivy League's Yale, Harvard, and Princeton. Also present are the Leaf Gum and Bowman sets from 1948, which were the first cards produced after World War II and ushered in the modern era of football cards. The latest set collected by Burdick, while he was in the prints department of the Museum organizing and cataloguing his collection into their signature green albums, is Bazooka's first football issue from 1959, which includes Johnny Unitas and Ollie Matson.

Sheet of 12 football cards from the Bowman Gum series produced in 1948

Issued by Bowman Gum Company. Sheet of 12 uncut football cards, from the Bowman Football series (R407-1) issued by Bowman Gum, 1948. Commercial color lithograph; Sheet: 10 in. x 6 1/4 in. (25.4 x 15.8 cm). The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Jefferson R. Burdick Collection, Gift of Jefferson R. Burdick (Burdick 327, R407-1.1)

Other stories about America can be told through the Burdick's sports cards, such as the ebb and flow in popularity of sports such as boxing—which dominated the collective consciousness at its height in the first decades of the twentieth century—or the role of women in sports and society at the turn of the century. "Sporting girls," as they were often called in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, emerged as a viable and even a lucrative category, despite being less frequently represented than actresses.

In 1887, the tobacco company Allen & Ginter produced a series of cards known as World's Champions that included the sharpshooter Annie Oakley. It followed quickly with female baseball players and cyclists, and other companies such as W. Duke and Sons, Liggett & Myers, and Pan Handle Scrap produced swimmers, gymnasts, and a series that offered "a sport for every girl." In these early days of female athleticism, the figures shown on these cards remained types rather than individuals, engaged in exercises and training but without the recognition given to their male counterparts in competitive and professional leagues.
