Collecting Vintage Football Cards - Mike Thomas Interview

The Collector's Weekly site has a nice interview with Mike Thomas about collecting older football cards. Mike's an encyclopedia of football card knowledge - I didn't know the roots of the football cards before reading this article.

My favorite Q&A of the interview:
CW: What is your advice for new football-card collectors? MT: Start slow and collect what you like. Some people get too concerned about value right away.

You can read the rest of the article here.

Mike's Vintage Football Card Gallery has some great photos. My personal favorites are the 1952 Bowman's. I'm working on a team set for them right now. I should receive a couple through the mail this week!

If you get into the older cards, check out The Collector's Weekly cards page.

Bingo! - if your collecting for value/investment you may be in the wrong hobby.
