Obaks are indeed a fun issue ! Have about 300 of them.

Those magazine articles are a good read. Glad to help out with the info as a contributor.

Default Obaks are a blast

One of my first vintage sets I came to love. Thanks David for posting those articles, some great ones which I had seen before (MaCrae and Obermeyer), and others that escaped me (the Toerpe and Lipset). It would be cool if that album mentioned by Lipset would show up. I imagine it is just as beautiful as the cards.

Here are some loose scans I found underneath a pile of bills and some junk mail. Man, I should really throw out that pile of bills.

Throw out the bills and junk mail...buy more Obaks! Great cards btw!

With the exception of a couple of ill begotten T206 attempts and a few T205s, I have always been a postwar collector. However, I have been thinking about Obaks for a few months and reading everything I can about them. Somehow, it is all clicking for me this time. It is really a fascinating allotment of cards. Thanks to all of you who have shared articles, knowledge, and scans. Let's keep this thread going!
