This whole thing I can thank or blame on a neighbor from when I was a kid in the early 1960s, he had a 4 foot by 16 foot board covered with button's next to his pool table that I was always in awe of I ran into him in 2001 at a funeral he was behind me but I knew that voice so as I turned I said "It's all your fault ya know" once he understood what I was talking about we had a little chuckle he was very interested in hearing about my collection and I was very sad to hear his entire collection went missing during his last move. BTW I am AKA MidMichBidder (on eBay) (Read more)
