I've been collecting baseball cards since the late 60's. When the hobby peaked in the late 80's I made the decision to only collect Topps cards. Luckily for me, my parents never threw away the shoeboxes from my childhood when Topps was the "only game in town". I have loads of other manufacturers cardboard from 1987-1990, bought before I realized that there wasn't the same joy in collecting that I had felt when I was a kid. I began pecking away at filling the 1971-1973 sets that were in the shoeboxes and lucked into a large assortment of cards from 1968-1970. Still, the going was slow and life put my collecting on hold for quite a few years. Then I stumbled upon the OBC website and knew that I had found a group of collectors who shared in what I felt about baseball and baseball cards. The feel of the candy store steps.

Do you remember the feel of the candy store steps?
