Barry's Baseball Type Set Collection
For the most updated list/spreadsheet of my current Typeset Collection from 1888-2015, please click here.
If you have a set that isn't
listed, I will be interested in trading with you. I want 1 from every set,
especially from 1880-1980!
When I was a kid, I collected the baseball cards of the 70s and 80s and my father collected cards from the 40s-60s. Then one day, we put together a puzzle that had pictures of vintage baseball cards going back to the beginning of the century (see picture to the left). One of us said, and I don’t remember who, “We should try to collect all the cards that are in this puzzle (except for the Wagner, although I will gladly trade for it!)”
And so it began, and the idea has since changed direction. We have been trading, buying, and selling to attempt to collect a card of every Hall of Fame player from their playing/managing/umpiring days, and get an example card from every set from 1880-1980. This is an even more difficult puzzle than the one we finished 30 years ago.
The puzzle still hangs framed on my wall, and the new puzzle is still in the works. So, if you have any oddball sets that you are willing to share, we would be ever thankful!
I am attempting to maintain a "VG Condtion" collection. That being said, I would much rather have a filler/beater card than none at all. I would prefer to trade vintage for vintage and modern for modern, but there are so many sets that I don't have that I am willing to hear any and all offers!!
