Allen & Ginter Card Collection

The blogosphere was buzzing with the latest version of Allen & Ginter cards. It seemed that half the card blogs out there had a review or box break.

Collector's Weekly has an interview with Dave Campbell, a collector who specializes in 1880s Allen & Ginter cards. I wasn't familiar with the sets before reading this article.

The interviewer asked an interesting question about "success as a collector." How do we grade success? Is it completing a set? That's probably a milestone, but I'm not sure I'll ever consider my collection a "success."

Here's the rest of the article.
