Nagfest, that’s a good one. I think my boys will hear that description about their behavior sometime soon...

Default Coolest thing I've seen in a long time!

Great articles! I had no idea that Wagner was being discussed in real time. I always assumed that card got popular in the 40's-50's. Thanks.

Great article..cool that it gives the contemporary answer (at least according to the tobacco company) that Honus had not given consent to have his image included in the T206 set. Of course there is still the question what the reason was that Wagner did not give this consent.
