Just a mini update for today...


OK, that was bad, I know. Nice card, though, right?

Anyway, with 2010 coming closer to the end, a few site news items:

1. The scans on the Robert Stephen Simon cards are a lot clearer now. Go re-experience the magic of a few days ago, this time with scans that don't make you claw your eyes out!

2. There's only one day left in my "CAPTION THIS CARD!" contest! I've got what I think is a pretty solid prize package, including a well-loved Fleer Ripken rookie (Cal, not Billy) and a bunch of other awesome stuff, and all you have to do is come up with a witty caption for this card:


If you've been late to the party, get your entry in ASAP! The contest ends at 11:59 PM Eastern Time tomorrow night. When the clock strikes Midnight, we'll have a winner and I'll announce it fairly soon afterward!

3. Does anyone reading this collect Upper Deck soccer cards?


Yeah, these guys.

I've got a stack of 50 here, 10 from the '07 MLS set and 40 from the '08 MLS set (for those wondering, no Beckhams, sorry) that I got when I thought I might be more motivated to get in on the action. I love soccer, I even play Yahoo Fantasy Premier League despite not having a clue what's going on, but in all likelihood, unless I end up getting really into the Red Bulls after I finally make it up to their beautiul new stadium, I'm probably not going to end up collecting soccer cards. I wouldn't mind a Pele' card, but that's about it. So, with that in mind, if anyone's interested in trading for these, let me know. I'll eventually just add them to the trade list if I don't hear anything, but I'd love to avoid cataloguing 50 more cards if I can.

4. I made a decision recently to start unloading non-duplicate cards of guys I'm not big fans of, but who, at some point or another, have fallen under the banner of "stars". I'll keep at least one card of each of these guys, even the accursed Chipper (Sorry, Braves fans in the audience!), but beyond that, unless it's a brilliant card or from a set I may try to build eventually, it's gone. Send me your lists of players you collect (I'm looking at you, Roberto Alomar fans), either in the comments or via email and I'll let you know if I've got anything for you.

5. Finally today, before 2010 is out (which doesn't rule out more posts tonight or tomorrow), I want to thank you all once again for helping to make Scott Crawford On Cards! such a huge, huge blast to write. I was so apprehensive about throwing yet another card site on the pile that it took me a long time to start, and I'm still not sure if I'm doing anything brilliant or revolutionary here (even within the genre), but I am having a hell of a lot of fun, and I hope you're having fun being a part of things here. Here's to more fun in 2011 and beyond for all of us.

  1. Revolutions are overrated. Everyone ends up dead.

    Having fun is much better. Glad you're having fun. So am I.
