  1. Is this the greatest baseball card of all time?



    OK… perhaps not. But if you're a Red Sox fan, there's a good chance you recognize the photo on this card as one of the greatest baseball moments of all time.

    It was Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS. The Yankees had built an insurmountable 3-0 lead in the series, and took a one-run lead into the ninth inning of Game 4. Enter Mariano Rivera. Game over. Series over. Season over.

  2. Coffee Table Cards

    I don't know about you, but there was a time when I carefully considered which cards from my collection to display... and how.

    Years ago, when I needed furniture, my parents handed-down a too-fancy glass-top coffee table. I never much cared for it... until it occurred to me to put some baseball cards in it.

    Flipping through some early 1970s Topps binders recently, I was struck by how often Thurman Munson appeared. That got me thinking: Has there ever been a ballplayer that has appeared in more baseball card two-shots than the late, great Yankee captain?

    In his 1971 issue, Topps photographed ol' #15 in this play-at-the-plate action shot. Here is Munson shown in 1972's In Action card providing consultation during a mound visit (Yankee fans of a certain age will recognize the hurler). ...

    Thought I would start taking advantage of the new blog feature as my head is getting full and I need to word vomit the contents out somewhere.

    I grew up in a very well-to-do town called Naperville and had never seen a thrift shop until I moved to Aurora about 5 years ago. It wasn't until I started working at a previous job 2 years ago that I went in one, pretty much because it was next door to the job. Must say I love going in them now and have found many cool items in the past ...
