Looking for an epic 400th post?

Well, you came to the wrong place.

This IS my 400th post, which is a remarkable and nearly unbelievable thing. I didn't post anything yesterday because I didn't want to mark the milestone with my normal post. Each of the previous times I've reached a century mark, I was sure it would be the last, but this hobby offers so many cards/topics worthy of an in depth look. You've got the new stuff, if you can find it. Still no Chicle or Topps Series 2 in my house. You've got amazing vintage cards that are little cardboard links to the past. You can write about teams, players, companies, sets, inserts, relics, autos...the list goes on and on.

I've made many new aquaintances, bunches of trade partners and some real friends through this blog. I've rediscovered a childhood hobby that started out as fun, became an addiction and ended up a fun way to pass on something to my boys.

I've learned more about cards and players in the last 8 months than I did in the previous 30 years. I've added more cards to my collection than I have since the great buying spree at the turn of the millenium. I've quadrupled the number of vintage cards in my collection. At least.

This weekend you'll see one of my favorite cards. At least from my collection. The week after next, I'll be on vacation and I'm going to try to schedule a few of my favorite pulls--cards that were the hottest cards of their time.

I'll leave you today with many thanks for reading, commenting and trading. I get much more from your blogs than you get from mine! I'll also leave you with one of my best and most favorite cards.

1966 Topps Sandy Koufax


  1. Nice milestone to hit. Keep up the good work.

  2. Congrats on the big 400! SWEEEEEEEEEEEEET!

  3. Woah, that '66 Sandy is better shape than mine.

    Congrats. Keep going!

  4. Nice going! That's a lot of cool posts!

  5. It seems like yesterday I was emailing you asking when you were going to start a blog of your own... It has been a pleasure reading all 400 of your posts, I hope to meet you in person one of these days. Congrats to your blog on it's 400th post! Well done my friend!

  6. Way to go! I, like many others I'm sure, look forward to reading your stuff each day as your posts are informative, well written, insightful, and just plain fun. I hope to read many more in the future.

  7. Nice card. Glad to see you still posting. Been very enjoyable to read thus far. Here's hoping for 400 more.
