I have been collecting sports and nonsports cards for over 40 years. During the past 30 years, I have focused my collection on music related cards and concert posters and handbills. I have accumulated over 250 unique music related sets issued all over the world from the 1950s through the 1990s.Last year, I have decided to start moving some of my extra cards and sets. I will continue listing extra sets, cards, concert posters and concert handbills that I have accumulated. I will not end auctions early. Thus, please do not ask. If you are looking for anything in particular, please let me know and I will try to list it.
