Monthly Site Updates (July 2019)
Each month, content gets updated on the Pre-War Cards site. However, while you see the regular articles that are posted, plenty of stuff is always being added behind the scenes. Much of this has to do with the updating of set descriptions and checklists in the database and each month, I’ll be posting to alert you to stuff that has been added or updated from the previous month.
Here are the items added/updated from July.
A bit of news last month included the mention that the site would be expanding a bit to cover cards produced through 1945, the end of World War II. While I had hoped to have that done fairly quickly, I haven’t yet started. We’ll get there, though.
Another expansion of sorts is also going to happen more gradually. Last month, I wrote about the 1940 Gum, Inc. Superman set. While the primary focus of this site will obviously be on sports cards, I am going to try to continue doing some individual pieces on popular non-sports sets.
A unique idea came out with a private company offering shares of a Honus Wagner T206 card. For as little as $100, you can get in on it.
Oh, and even though I don’t really collect soccer cards, I found a rare one that I was quite excited about.
Altered card allegations are still flying around on Blowout, though I covered far less of them this past month. One of the latest more expensive pre-war cards was a Joe Jackson E90-1 American Caramel rookie card. A few rare 1890s May cards were also cited. And the Washington Post even got in on the action offering a rather extensive article on the situation.
And this is by far one of the craziest pre-war sports card sets you’ll ever see.
