Collection of fifty-two different issues of The Trader Speaks magazine from 1978 to 1984. The Trader Speaks magazine, strictly devoted to sports-card collecting, was published monthly by hobby legend Dan Dischley for over three decades. The collection consists of the following: 1978 (4 - Sept. to Dec.), 1979 (12), 1980 (12), 1981 (8 - Jan., Mar., Apr., May, Jun., Jul., Aug., and Dec.), 1982 (5 - Feb., Mar., Jun., Jul., and Dec.), 1983 (9 - Jan., Feb., Mar., May, Jun., Jul., Oct., Nov., and Dec.), and 1984 (2 - Feb. and Mar.). Each magazine is filled with photos and information related to sports-card collecting. All of the issues are addressed on the back cover (except one address is torn off). This collection was carefully saved by a very dedicated and advanced longtime collector whose card collection is featured in this auction. When we saw the stack of Trader Speaks , we knew that many collectors would appreciate them. This is a very sharp and attractive group of The Trader Speaks magazine, of great historical significance to the collecting world, representing a fascinating time capsule of hobby history. Total: 52 issues. Reserve $100. Estimate $200+. SOLD FOR $356
