Outta Sight! Vintage features favorite vintage cards I've added through shows, online buys and trades. These are my own private icons - cards I had longed to own or perhaps discovered by happenstance. They may include superstars, favorite players or simply sweet-looking commons. These cards make me smile.
But what means 'vintage'? Good question, if not a grammatically troubled one.
While I consider "vintage" anything my age or older, thus 1968 on back, for OSV I'm expanding the definition to anything older than my kid collection wheelhouse - thus 1975 and earlier.
OSV differs from The Cardboard Heroes, which showcases favorite cards from my kid collection. You know, back when baseball players were heroes.

Excerpt: ...when I first stopped collecting baseball cards
in 1983 I'm not sure I had heard of Freehan ... I would have sworn that Lance Parrish was the
greatest Tiger catcher to ever live.

Excerpt: I'll never forget
standing outside Tiger Stadium with my Dad one night ... and seeing Sparky in the passenger seat of a car ... He looked
over, made eye contact and gave a little wave.
