Old School Cards

I collect mostly vintage autographed cards. The cards I collect are from the 1960's and older for the most part. I do collect some newer sets that are styled after vintage cards however. The oldest signed card in my collection is a 1935 Diamond Stars signed by Bill Werber. Mr. Werber turned 100 last June and still signs through the mail. I sent this card to him about 3 years ago and got it back in about a week.

I also have collected a few cards from the 1949 Bowman set. One of my favorites is Bobby Doerr, shown here. I also have Mr. Doerr on a few more recent cards that are styled after vintage sets, such as the 2006 Allen & Ginter set. Mr. Doerr is a generous signer through the mail.
