This is an open, moderated forum created in October 2006 to discuss
pre-1970, vintage Non-Sports cards. It will be moderated
to primarily talk about pre01970, vintage Non-Sports cards and related subjects.
Who Can Post?
You must be registered
and logged in to participate. You may remain anonymous as long your post is
not controversial or confrontational.
Anonymous posts that are controversial or confrontational will probably be
deleted. If any board moderator asks you to email them personally you must do
so or risk being banned from posting on the board. This is for everyone's
safety. Board moderators will only ask for these emails under circumstances
they deem necessary for the welfare of the board. Everyone has "read"
access to the site and we hope all enjoy it. We welcome new members all of the
time as long as they come with the forum purpose in mind.
This forum was established to talk about Pre-1970 Non-Sports
cards. Subjects "related" to Pre-1970 Non-Sports cards can be
discussed also. Occasionally, off topic subjects will be permitted by board
participants only. The participants involvement in the
board determines the leniency in frequency of off topic posts. In other words
the more you participate the more leniency you will
receive in discussing off-topic material. This is still a Pre-1970 Non-Sports
card chat board and we will always try keep it's
focus. Others are permitted too as long as you are a frequent board participant
and they are only occasional.
Things you can not post about.
Personal information about people including but not limited to: Phone
numbers, addresses, email addresses, etc, unless given permission ... Bickering
between participants on the board is expected. As long as it doesn't get too
bad it will be let go. Too much fighting is not good and will be censored.
Personal attacks will not be allowed. Name calling will not be allowed. Those
exchanges should be taken off line and will be asked to do so. Politics and
religion are also not permitted on the board and posts concerning this subject
matter will be deleted. Any cards other than Pre-1970 Non-Sports will not be
permitted by folks that are not regular contributors and will be considered off
topic. Any new cards will be considered off topic as there are other boards for
that, however some 70's and 80's non-sports card topics could be permitted and
may not be deemed off topic. Memorabilia, autographs, game used anything, and
other sports things will be considered off topic and any cards that aren't
Non-Sports will be considered off topic.
We also ask that members do not "hijack" the threads of other
members as this does a disservice to those interested in that particular
subject matter and is especially discourteous to the original author of that
Also, to be absolutely clear, this is not a complaint board about grading,
graders or grudges. If your first post on the forum is negative, it will likely
be deleted. Trolls are not tolerated and they will be banned.
Posts offering to buy, sell, or trade items should be made in the
index. This includes posts for items appearing in on-line auctions like eBay, Mastro, Lipset, etc. B/S/T posts
in the main Vintage Non-Sports Cards Forum will be deleted.
You may disagree with another poster's opinions, but please keep the insults
to a minimum. Moderation will be in moderation when the rules are
