Burdick was ahead of his time in many ways. His breathless description of the James N. Colkitt Collection wouldn't be too out of place in a modern auction catalog. The reference to "the gems of this great collection", "an opportunity that seldom occurs to get some really rare sets", "these cards become scarcer every year and world wide demand is gradually forcing values upward".
