I apologize in advance if this is not of interest, but Nick as allowed me to do a guest post on a relatively new card collection of mine...
I've always been a fan of Broadway musicals and Broadway in general, and during the pandemic I discovered a company making these Lights Of Broadway cards, and a community of collectors to chat and trade with. I already collect Playbills, programs, and theatre ephemera, so why not? as I'm sure you collectors can understand!
I'm going to NYC on Sunday for a visit to the Schubert Alley Broadway Cares Flea Market, too. It's equivalent to The National for Baseball cards! I'm sure some of these cards will be purchased!
I'm also paying homage to a theme Nick has used...the Top 5!
#4 - Jerry Orbach
It does often bug me when I mention Jerry Orbach and I ear "you mean the old guy from that cop show?"...well yes, but SO much more!
if I listed my 10 favorite songs from musicals, he sang 4 of them, and in 42nd St. and Chicago, he starred in 2 of my all time favorites...
#3 - George & Ira Gershwin
These card sets cover everything from shows currently running to the early days, and among the coolest cards are these "Golden Age" cards...
Hard to get in rarer air than the Gershwins!
..and speaking of rare air...Stephen Sondheim, the man was an industry unto himself! His death at 91 this year brought out tribute after tribute.
It's always hard to settle on a "greatest" but as far as strictly writing for theatre...he's the greatest!
Still the only person to win a Tony, an Oscar, and an Emmy IN THE SAME YEAR... Bob Fosse could do it all...Choreographer, Director, Actor, Writer...
Definitely a troubled guy, but no one lived for showbiz more than him, a truly amazing dude...
