Article Index -- Search Information & Tips
This database-driven index now contains a considerable amount of detail for more than 1000 articles--all directly related to collecting vintage baseball cards and memorabilia. These include all feature articles from Old Cardboard magazine. Article details can be obtained by selecting the article title from the main index listing.
Details for each article include customary index data (title, author, issue number, issue date, starting page number, number of pages in the article, number of illustrations, etc.). In addition, the detail for each full-length magazine article includes an image of the magazine cover in which that article appears, a several-line article abstract and thumbnail images of the finished article layout.
Numerous shorter articles found in the Editor's Notebook and Collector's Dugout sections of the magazine are also indexed. In addition, over 200 articles from Old Cardboard eNewsletters are now included in the database. Direct links to each eNewsletter article are provided so that the user has on-line access to the full text and graphics of the article.
We have also indexed articles from the full run of all fifty of Lew Lipset's The Old Judge newsletters published in the late 1980s and from all 38 issues of The Vintage & Classic Baseball Collector (VCBC). In addition, the index includes several dozen relevant articles from Sports Scoop, a hobby monthly distributed in the early 1970s. Articles form other hobby publications such as The Trader Speaks, the Sports Exchange Trading Post and others are planned for the future.
The user is also able to filter database searches by Publication, Article Type, and a simple yet very useful Word Search string. Query results can then be sorted by Publication (default), Issue Number and Issue Date.
