I mentioned baseball cards not long ago, and I suppose it should come as no surprise that there is at least one baseball card blog. I wouldn't even mention it, except that I happened across the most recent entry about the numbering system used on Topps cards in the sixties, and was very much surprised. Dude! There was a system? I collected those cards, and I never even suspected there was some sort of system to the way they were numbered. Well, maybe I might have noticed that the really big stars all ended in "00," but if I did, I totally forgot about it.
--- Meanwhile, another story on how the, er, bubble burst on card speculation, and what Topps plans to do about it.
