Default Anyone Collect Wire Photos?

I am considering picking up some vintage wire photos of players that I collect. I've never purchased one before and I was curious if there are things to consider, other than condition, before buying?

Also, if you collect them please show them off!

PSA recently started grading wire photos. Type 1, type 2, type 3. Familiarize yourself with this wire photo vernacular and buy authentic wire photos and not reproductions.
