What is the weather like in Barcelona at that time, late May? Last time I went it was fall and it was not a lot of fun. I would like to go sometime when the weather was good, what I saw was delightful.

There is no different between Alpha and Beta booster wrappers, but can't you tell by handling the pack and feeling the corners? I have asked my son Peter, Richard Garfield, Skaff Elias, Luc Mertens and Rachael Hemstad this same question. None of them know of any way, other than the one suggested he...

Very interesting, My son will be here for Thanksgiving. If I remember, I'll ask him to look at them and tell me anything he can about them. The ones I have are blank except the title and needed info. The first ones I ever saw were pencil on pasteboard and had hand drawn sketches or nothing at all.

Did you start collecting from the beginning ?
