Long-Awaited Major Pre-War Cards Site Update is Coming

Numerous new sports card sets will shortly be added to the Pre-War Cards website

You might recall that earlier this spring, I mentioned that new sports card sets were coming to the website. My target was to have those completed by this summer but, a few days into the fall, I’m happy to announce those are underway.

That link will give you more information on what is going to be added. But in short, there is now an “Other Sets” link at the top of the page, you’ll notice, beyond the pages for the eight major sports covered. That Other Sets link is a drop down menu where you can select additional sports, including:

  • Aviation
  • Auto Racing
  • Billiards
  • Boating/Rowing
  • Cricket
  • Cycling
  • Horse Racing
  • Lacrosse
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Swimming and Diving
  • Track and Field
  • Everything Else

When you click on one of those links, eventually, you will get a page of sets for that sport. For now, I am sticking with my plan to include only sets listed in the American Card Catalog for these pages. However, I am expanding the scope just a bit to include sets with those cards in it, even if the complete set does not consist of those cards. So if there is a soccer card in a multi-sport set, I’m going to add the set to the soccer page.

As you can imagine, it will take a little time to figure those sets out. And while I’ve got a good list of them already, it surely isn’t perfect. So once the update is complete (hopefully by the end of this week) if you can think of a set that needs to be added for those sports that is listed in the American Card Catalog, please let me know.

In the meantime, the pages for those sports are currently blank. But you’ll start to see the new sets and descriptions added soon.

As always, thanks for visiting the site as it continues to grow into an even more valuable resource.
