Articles in the issue are written by some of the hobby's most informed experts and about some of it's most interesting vintage sets. They include:

1) "Topps’ 1st Decade of Baseball Cards--Part I: The 'Regular Issues' of the 1950s" by David Hornish. A survey of the first of a long running series of "regular issue" baseball card sets from the Topps dynasty. Key features of Topps' first eight mainstream sets, beginning with its landmark issue of 1952, are all discussed and illustrated with front and back examples for each year. A table compares these eight sets for quick reference.

2) "1925-31 Postcard-Back Exhibits: A Colorful Set Filled with Intrigue" by Adam Warshaw. Collector Warshaw documents his many years of studying the most colorful and one of the most challenging of all issues produced by the Exhibit Supply Company of Chicago. All of the variation subsets are described in detail along with discussions of the very scarce 4-on-1 cards, how the set relates to W517 strip cards, and much more.

3) "1912 C46 Imperial Tobacco: Canada's Only 'T-Card' Set" by Old Cardboard Staff. A fresh new look
at Canada's only tobacco card issue. Set basics are supplemented with a full gallery of the 90-card set. A checklist of this minor league issue spotlights the 64 players (nearly three-quarters of the set) that also had experience in the Majors. Side panels profile the International League and highlight two not-so-key players.

In addition to the above articles, all issues of Old Cardboard magazine include regular sections for Editor's Notebook, Collector's Dugout, the baseball and baseball-card-themed Old Cardboard Crosswords, informative messages from our sponsors, and more.
