The evolution of a card blog

Well, as it turns out Ben Henry of the celebrated Baseball Card Blog might or might not retire in 2008. It would suck to lose a Blogger considering he kind of started this whole scene but if he does decide to go, there are two new Blogs to read and enjoy.

The first one is called Poor Old Baseball Cards and it’s quite fascinating. The guy goes out and buys some of the most famous cards of all-time, but only if they are creased, bent, and or destroyed. He has some amazing cards for you to look at, including a T-206 Ty Cobb!

The second blog is dedicated to pre-war baseball cards but will feature lots of different topics relating to our hobby. Ironically, it’s called For Love of the Cards. I haven’t had a chance to look over it yet but will do so as soon as I am done watching Juno with the so-called “Infamous” Tatiana. 😦

Both these blogs shall be added to the Sports Cards Blog Directory tonight. Keep em’ coming, guys! Remember, everything old is new again. Who would ever think that you’d see a new 1987 Topps Jose Canseco. In our hobby, nothing ever dies and that includes Blogs.




  1. Mario, Thanks for your hard work with Wax Heaven. I enjoy reading your site as well as Ben’s. I will be sorry if he indeed decides to shut it down. I read about your man crush on Jose Canseco and thought you might like to see this post. keep up the good work.

  2. You know something? If you are just collecting cards for the fun of it, you have no need for a Mint/NrMint… As long as the picture can be made out and you can read the stats on the back.

  3. You don’t throw away family pictures because they have bends or creases. Sometimes the imperfections mean more than the card…

  4. I guess I’ll have to make my own blog….
