Just curious if anyone else collects the Grolier Story of America cards - either by having been enrolled in the monthly program or through purchases via eBay, etc.?

Here's a current eBay Auction (Item number: 290042778175) to see what they look like.

Personally, I have hundreds and hundreds of these. I may have to pull some and scan them to give a better feel for what they look like.

Yep. That's how I got started with them. Do you still have them? Did you get any of the ones with athletes?

Did you see them as collectibles or cards like them in school?

I am a collector of memorabilia relating to women in baseball, specifically the AAGPBL (A League of Their Own). I own the Ila Borders card from this series (check out this auction for the image of the card: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...DME:B:AAQ:US:1).

Are there others made by Grolier relating to women in baseball or the AAGPBL? Where might I obtain a series checklist?

Thanks for your help! Josh
