E-mail Servers (Updated 1/23/2018)

In order to receive emails from the group and stay in communication you must get set up on the e-mail servers. One of our members Mark Talbot (talbot1@comcast.net) is the moderator of these groups and he (or one of the other moderators) will make the final approval of your server application. First a few words about the servers that are sanctioned by OBC:


All OBC members MUST be set up on this server as official notifications from the OBCAC and others are posted here.


This server is used to thank members for everything and anything vintage. Posting thanks is a courtesy that everyone in the group appreciates and it serves as a way to let everyone know of others generosity. Please note that this server is used to post appreciation for VINTAGE items considered 1980 and earlier. Getting set up on this server is not required but it is highly recommended.


This server is used to share stories, post concerns, smack talk and general messages. Basically, this is where we "chew the fat". Getting set up on this server is not required but it is recommended.

Want Lists, Waivers & Tradeables (WWT)

This server is used to post trading card needs, "waiver wires", items that you have to send out (also Wauctions), or cards you would like to put up for trade. Postings on this server can often spark incoming cardboard so be prepared. Please note that this server is used to post want lists for VINTAGE items considered 1980 and earlier and that it is not used to sell items you may be selling. Getting set up on this server is not required but it is recommended.

UV List

This server is used to discuss everything and anything about cards that were produced after 1980. Posting thanks, ramblings and want lists are routine on this server and it is used by those who have an interest in newer materials. OBC is an organization based on our love of "old baseball cards" but this medium allows an outlet for those in the group who also enjoy UV material. If you plan on "chatting" about Post 1980 material this is the place to do it and not the Ramblings server that is reserved for VINTAGE conversations. Getting set up on this server is only recommended for those who wish to discuss newer material.

Now that you have an overview of the email groups you need to get set up on the email group servers. Please decide the groups that interest you and go to these links, once there find the join group tab and click it.

Repeat this process for every group you wish to receive messages from and remember that you MUST be signed up for the ANNOUNCEMENTS server. When you have completed the "application" to the servers you will be approved within 48 hours and will start to receive emails. You will need a Yahoo account and will be prompted as such when you first try to access these URL's. If you have questions or problems with this process contact Mark at talbot1@comcast.net .

There are a few additional email groups that many OBC member belong to but are not sanctioned by OBC; they are the NATIONAL server where discussions on the National Baseball Card Convention are entertained, the VARIATIONS server where trading card variations are discussed, and the OPC-CENTRAL server where Canadian trading cards are discussed. If interested in these then follow the links below and the owner or moderators of those groups approve you.

Bob Reed is the owner of the National email server, here is the link:
National - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/OBC-National/

George Vrechek and Taylor Schock are moderators of the variations group, here is the link:
Variations - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/card-variations/

Dan Austin is the owner of OPC-Central, here is the link:
OPC-Central - http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/opc-central/

GOOD LUCK and don't be afraid to ask questions if you have any problems getting yourself set up.
