Default Card Collector's Bulletin, 8/1/69: Lionel Carter, hobby history

Here are all 18 pages of Card Collector's Bulletin #181, dated August 1, 1969. The first part of Lionel Carter's lead article uses a correspondent's uncut sheets of 1934 Goudeys to establish that the #106 Lajoie, ostensibly from the 1933 set, was actually printed with the 1934 cards. Then Carter discusses the earliest days of Card Collector's Bulletin, listing all the people who were subscribers before he became #33 in 1938, and reminiscing about the first card auctions ever in the 1940s. 900 different Old Judges for $300! The ads and auction prices in this issue are pretty good too -- not quite as cheap as a decade earlier, but I would gladly pay $35 for a complete set of E95s, as one ad was offering. And somebody named O. A. Alloy Jr. took out a two-page ad looking for old hobby publications, which of course interests me. That kind of goes with the theme of Carter reminiscing about the early days of the hobby.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting. I should have been buying baseball cards, RPPC's, postcards, and other memorabilia the summer of '69 instead of hanging out at the beach.

Thanks for posting that. In the hobby letters (posted previously) to John Wagner, collectors noted in the Bulletin shown make several appearances. It helps connect the dots to early collecting.

This video was produced by Mastro Auctions. It was about Lionel Carter. The
first few minutes of the video talks about his early contributions to the hobby,
including his writings. Very cool to be able to view some of his thoughts all
these years later.

Thanks for sharing the video. Lucked out getting to see his Chase sitting raw.
