[quote=“John S.”]Dean Grua has provided an excellent article explaining his fascination with newer .22 box collecting.
Check it out at cartridgecollectors.org/new22box/new22box.htm
Many potential collectors may become interested in cartridge collecting if you apply the same reasoning that Dean shares with us. This is an affordable specialty that may be interesting to younger collectors as well.
Nice job, Dean! Thanks for taking the time to write it up.[/quote]
Now that is a very neat article, summing up the very essence of collecting, whatever the subject, for many of us. I remember the despairing feeling of inadequacy when faced with a big cartridge meeting or somebody else’s comprehensive collection. Then someone will recognise me, walk up, and ask a question. Then I realise that I can help others and am therefore not right at the bottom of the pile and I feel great again. So I have a beer to celebrate collecting and collectors everywhere.
