Editor’s Notes (December 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 the past month.
Heading into the new year, excited to see what 2020 holds for the site. Couple of things to hit on from the past month in terms of actual news stuff.
SGC began a rollout of a new program to provide collectors with high-quality scans of the cards they have graded with them. And a second Fred Tenney card from the E104 Nadja set was discovered and auctioned off. You might recall, that card was only just discovered last year and mentioned here first.
Speaking of new discoveries, one of those was just made, too, as I found a new (albeit minor) variation of Willie Keeler’s pink background E90-1 American Caramel card. The variant has the period missing from his American League abbreviation and seems to be a good bit rarer than his card with the period present. Pretty minor error/variation but one that will generate some interest since it’s in such a popular set.
In all, 20 new articles were posted to the site last month. Among the non-news posts was my ranking of the Top 13 pre-war baseball cards of all time. I also wrote about quite a bit more, including the strange backgrounds of the T220 Champion Athletes and Prizefighters set, the three T206 cards of Frank Chance, the five horizontal cards in the E90-1 American Caramel set, some of Ty Cobb’s most popular cards, what a T206 card looks like under magnification, a few very cheap postcards of a Hall of Famer, and quite a bit more.
