I don't have a real want list per se; if it's nice, I'll trade, bid, or outright buy it. My fascination with the vintage cards is very simple; the newer cards are just too flashy, over-stated, and some are downright obnoxious.
The vintage cards are pure class in their own right. I've purchased several cards based on pure aesthetics with no real regard to grade - in fact I've bought several in raw condition.
So if you have any vintage cards you want to trade for modern day cards, I'm all ears (would trade my Pujol's rookies all day long for some T206's or T213's).
Ok, more later :)
