One Man's Thoughts on Sports Card Collecting

The Hobby on ESPN

Happy (belated) Topps Launch Day!  I got myself a regular box and a couple jumbo packs yesterday, scans and discussion to follow shortly.  As a hint of what I pulled, I'm starting to think I'm some kind of Dodger magnet when it comes to pulling hits out of packs....

For today though, just a quick post with a link to a fun article on ESPN.com that talks about some of the memorable card photos in hobby history in the wake of all the press over this year's Squirrel card.  I liked the story of the Orel Hershiser card best.  Check it out!

  1. If you pulled a hit of Matt Kemp or Clayton Kershaw, I'd love to trade for it.
