Quick hits!

* Patricia and Lucy from Dinged Corners sent me a few more cards, which I received yesterday. The highlight of the stack was this 1969 Topps Rookie Stars card of Richie Hebner and Al Oliver. I absolutely love old cards like this, and getting one sent to you just because you like the team on the card is sweet. I think I'm gonna have to dig through my doubles again to see if I have any more cards to send over there.

* I ordered a copy of the 2009 Sports Collectors Digest price guide from Amazon, and it came in today. I haven't looked it at much, but I can tell you that it's HUUUUUUUGE. I don't really care how much my cards or worth, but I bought it anyway so I can use it as a checklist and to get help with sorting out all those parallel and insert sets that have popped up over the past few years. The neat thing about it is that they threw in a digital version of the price guide on a DVD. if you want to order your own copy, go here.

* I just found out that Billy Martin was fired as Yankees manager in 1979 because he PUNCHED A MARSHMALLOW SALESMAN. No wonder the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man was so angry.

Oh, yeah. I almost forgot.


Did you get yours?
