Cool! I was looking real hard at this product. That's a neat late 19th/early 20th century auto! She was a pianist it seems.

After looking over the checklist I think I could have done much worse

She performed at the white house for President Lincoln when she was 10 years old

I hadn't heard of her, but a terrific bio. This product has some interesting late 19th-early 20th century figures. I've had a ball buying cuts--in fact, I have 2% of the entire run!

Which are your favorites? Some major names on the checklist

Most of my cuts are opera/classical. The biggest name I have is Aaron Copland. Among the opera singers are Lawrence Tibbett and Rosa Ponselle, who had huge careers and appeared on US postage stamps. I also have Geraldine Farrar, a soprano who made a silent version of "Carmen" with Cecil B. DeMille. She was so popular that after her farewell at the Metropolitan Opera, her fans carried her out of the building on their shoulders!

There are several composers, including Jules Benedict, who had lunch with Beethoven in 1822 and went on to accompany Jenny Lind on her US tour.

Finally, there's one contemporary performer I should have: Lyle Lovett. I won the auction, but the *&%#@&% seller skipped town with my money! (Ebay refunded me.)

I'd love to see a scan of the Copland

I'd forgotten that. Interesting that Copland outlived Bernstein by 2 months (by date of death) and by almost 20 years (by lifespan).

I should have listed Copland's teacher, Nadia Boulanger, as another highlight of my collection.

Nice, now there's a name that had a hand in many other names

BTW, how do you get your pictures so clear while in the holder?

Is it a scan or a picture?

Scan. Always depends on the what scanner you use

I do not want to come across as knocking you but this product was a disappointment. I bought a bunch of singles between $5 and $30. I was hoping there would be more mainstream autos like Cobain, Vedder, Morrison, Armstrong, etc. It is not worth the $150+ per box.

I don't see your comment as knocking on the OP at all. Many people were concerned with this product before and after release.
