Just want to share a new addition to my collection .... not cards .. but a long time comming, a card and price guide for all the Tobacco and non-sports card guides.

Its "Murrays Guide to Cigarette and other trade cards" .. found here on www.amazon.co.uk

Something that I should have a picked up ages ago .. but I've been kind of an online database snob .. so If I can't download it .. I wouldn't buy it.

anyway ... Its something I will read cover to cover (yep .. call me a nerd or trading card geek).

I'm learning that this place lists prices for just sets and singles .. and its the price you can purchase these from their store in Hendon, outside london.

- Funny because I lived down the road from their shop for a year, passed the shop every day on my way to the train station, but it was never open !! - I thought it was a front for the Jewish trading card mafia. laugh.gif (Hendon is in the middle of a largely Jewish populated section of North London)

anyway .. with the book of informtion I can also see what I have picked up in auctions over the last years and help out here ...

SO ...

I've neglected my data "Harvesting" over the last few months in favor of developing a shared web-based front end for the data (See developments around TCC).

But the problem with this data, is that there is always more to harvest. Turn your back for a week and there are 10 new products. Each with their own concaphony of inserts, subsets, parallel sets. 1/1, etc.

For someone working on a database for them all, its a challenge.

Working on an interface that the public and manufacturers can add missing ones is the way to go ... but who will participate, who will verify ?

should it be wikipedia style .. or IMDB style ?

more to come on these adventures ....

-Jim
