Sports Card Info Is 12 Years Old Today

Twelve years ago today Sports Card Info got it’s start.  I began blogging while in college.  Many blogs have come and gone since then, but Sports Card Info is still going strong.  I’m not 100% sure what got me started on blogging.  Before Sports Card Info I had success writing a bunch of eBay Guides about sports cards if anyone remembers those.  I guess I saw other sports card blogs starting to popup and I thought “Hey, I can do that too.”

Thanks to everyone who stops by on a regular basis.  More Card of the Day, contest, scams/fake card info, and box break & review posts coming in 2020.  Coverage of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club will be present too.

Sports Card Info’s most popular post of 2019 comes from 8/12 titled Counterfeit Frank Thomas 1990 Topps “No Name” Rookie Gets BGS Approval.  Ironically, that card was graded on 12/27/18 which was Sports Card Info’s 11th anniversary.

My biggest pull of the year came from a box of 2019 Topps Archives.  It is a Ken Griffey Jr. Fan Favorites Auto.

Lets see if we can make it to lucky #13.

“Pin-Up” of the Week: ’12 Little League World Series PA 12 Midwest Shot Glass Pin

Photobucket

The 2012 Little League World Series will soon take over South Williamsport once again.  Pins will be flowing like water.  If your a pin collector, especially baseball ones, this is the place to be.  This ten day long baseball and pin extravaganza starts August 16th and goes until the 26th.  I’ll probably head up there one weekend to see what kind of promo pins I can snag.

You have to admit, the above pin is hilarious.  A Little League pin designed to look like a shot glass.  Anyone else find this funny?  Perhaps next year we’ll see some Little League World Series pins featuring the Marlboro Man.  This is a district pin and probably isn’t endorsed by Little League officials.  I guess you could drink anything out of a shot glass, but one usually makes you think of alcohol.  These pins are selling for $5.00 to $12.00.

Here is the official logo pin of the 2012 Little League World Series:

“Pin-Up” of the Week: Captain America 2011 Little League World Series FL 12 Pin

The Little League World Series is a pin collector’s paradise (especially if your a baseball fan).  Almost anything you can think of that deals with the LLWS has a pin.  Some of the most sought after pins are the ones that come from individual districts.  The above Captain America pin comes from FL 12 and is quite large, measuring up to 4″.  There are a few variations, and one that even glows in the dark.  They have been selling for $20.00 – $30.00 a piece.
