Default Looking at the auction listings...

I voted to keep 'em in sheets, but looking at the auction listings, your two "sheets" appear to have been cut down already.

Looks like the original had groupings that were 2 rows x 9 columns (call them A and B). Each grouping was paired with another grouping horizontally (2 rows x 19 columns) in which the left and right groups alternated:
AB
BA
AB
BA

I would still keep them together, but I wouldn't blame you for cutting off the far left column or one of the rows on one of your sheets.

The masses have spoken and by a landslide. I had no idea that Net54ers could actually agree on something. Thanks for all those that responded. It was appreciated. I will nix the cutting of the sheet.

Oh well, I guess my daughter won't be getting that trampoline for her birthday..........................and how in the world am I going to convince my wife that the Net54 consensus was to frame both Bowman card sheets, remove a few pictures of the kids from the wall, and place the Bowman cards in its place......................."but honey, don't you get it; these are not just ordinary baseball cards, they are printer scrap baseball cards."

Lovely day...

I am glad my wife agrees that I should display my stuff. She has even said it would be nice if we could get a bigger place so that I could have a full room for my baseball stuff, a room for our batman stuff (we are both huge batman nerds), and a room for my movie posters (or as she calls it a theater for my posters). She feels the children would just have to decide what room they want to sleep in.

Instead of moving pictures off the wall, tell her that you are willing to put them on the ceiling so that you can look at them while you are laying down.

Iggy, if it meant not getting your daughter the trampoline -- I'd cut the sheet.

The only reason I can think of to suggest that yes, you should cut them up as mentioned, would be if you were going to give me one of the cards. I'll send you a stamped envelope, just let me know. Otherwise, keep 'em in tact. If it's a money thing, sell one and keep the other in tact.

Thanks for the sentiment, it is appreciated. She will get here trampoline, whether I cut, sell, or not. All these years I always thought you were one of the tough guys. Sort-of like the John Wayne of prewar cards.................I guess I will have to reassess my interpretation .

I'd had my eye on those but missed the ending. Glad someone here got them.

I wouldn't cut them. But I can't usually even cut old magazines for the ads, even the trashed ones usually get a reprieve.
