And The Next Blog Is.....

  • The 1978 Topps Baseball set was the winner in the "next blog" poll. 1978 had 16 votes, 1981 had 9 votes, and 1960 had 6 votes. The link to the new blog is here.
  • I'm toying with the idea of doing a 1981 blog as well. How much interest would there be in doing a "community blog" for 1981? It could be structured similar to the "Pack to be Named Later" blog where each person could post about any 1981 baseball card he/she wants. Please let me know in the comments or by e-mail.
  • By the way, I "borrowed" the image from The Shlablotnik Report blog. I have the same magazine in storage but I couldn't dig it out. I used to dream about getting cards from these ads in Street and Smith's and so forth, but I wasn't able to afford it until I was 11 years old and got a paper route in the summer of 1978.  Once I started making some money I sent out for a lot of stuff from these ads.
