I've met a couple of these guys, and made a few deals with others. I'm always in awe at those who have collections in the 10s of thousands.

Carl Reese has a truelly amazing collection, but his attitude has p****d off many other collectors over the years.

This.

I understand this hobby has some greedy people who want free stuff with nothing in return, not even a thank you, but he has a "me vs everyone else" attitude that shakes me the wrong way.

Thanks for the input!!!

I looked into Carl Reese and bought his book..sadly it was quite light on content...

Found the websites of Carlos Pessini, Constantin Klezl, Kevin Cleynhens, and Chris Brady, the safety card database and social media of Troy Dixon and Pessini to be more useful seems these have a more open approach of sharing there collection.. So will make contact with these guys who have a good reputation..

There isn't much coverage of the hobby found an article on Troy Dixon and another person but not much else...

Thanks

Carlos is a great guy. Don't hesitate trading with him. He has a great collection too.
I'm looking for old Iranian cards. If you have any contact me please.

Also, this is my updated trade list if anyone is interested:

I should mention that Mehrad Watson who is an Iranian collector has a great collection too.
