There’s a hard-core group of collectors at The Villages, an Orlando-area community with plenty of retirees and 1950s cards.
A few of them knew each other. They recruited a few others and soon a few dozen like-minded baseball card collectors were getting together in a Florida community.
They’ve got officers, plenty of enthusiasm and are thinking about putting on a show.
The group includes primarily vintage card collectors with some impressive stock. Of course, it helps when you were a 1950s kid who could build your collection with free packs.
