Part 2: A Look through the Standard Catalog of Vintage Baseball Cards at what’s next for the card collector attempting to get a piece of everything. It’s not feasible, but it’s sure worth a shot.
In the first part of a multi-part series, George Vrechek looks through the Standard Catalog at what’s next for the card collector in the attempt to try and collect everything. Just how cards are out there?
From a T206 Eddie Plank PSA 5 and T206 Cy Young (Cleveland, Portrait) PSA 8 leading the prewar cards, it’s a big deal to consider the postwar offerings might hold even greater appeal to bidders at Greg Bussineau.
T206 Walter Johnson PSA 8, 1957 Topps Ted Williams PSA 9 among high-grade singles offered by Greg Bussineau. Plus a great set break of 1938’s Horrors of War.

The investment history of baseball cards is examined in this meaty article, involving vintage baseball card price guides, the stock market and the Vrechek Vintage Card Index. As you might guess, banking on 1950s Topps and tobacco cards has been a pretty good trend to follow.
A fantasy baseball game that rewards you with autograph card and more? Count me in. Topps reveals the Bowman Prospect Challenge, where collectors enter codes, pick the prospects they think will excel and win prizes.
