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.

Sports Card Info Celebrates 10 Years!

On this date in 2007 Sports Card Info was born.  Blogs pertaining to sports cards were really taking off at that time.  While some are still around, many have burned out.  But Sports Card Info continues to move forward.

I’d like to thank everyone who takes time to visit each day.  As a token of my appreciation, I’ve got some 10th anniversary contests in the works.  Be sure to keep an eye out for them.

In the meantime, leave a comment on this post with a valid e-mail address by 11:59 p.m. EST on 12/27/17 for your chance to win an official Sports Card Info collectible pin.  Only (150) pins have been made.  That’s not a lot when it comes to pins.  I’ll announce who the winner is in the comment section on 12/28/17 and contact them by e-mail.  Good luck!!!

Sports Card Info T-Shirts!

One of the cooler Christmas gifts I got are a few new custom made t-shirts with “Sports Card Info” on them.  They match my pins.  Its a $10 billion brand, and the greatest thing to happen in the last 500 years 🙂

Sports Card Info Celebrates 9 Years!

Today Sports Card Info celebrates it’s 9th birthday.  My blogging career began way back when eBay first introduced their guides.  I remember compiling a lot of information for my first eBay guide called How To Spot Fake Sports Cards That Are For Sale.  Looking back now it seems kind of generic, but it gained traction.  That led me to create my own blog.  Many blogs have come and gone in the last nine years, but I’m still around.

Thanks to everyone who visits on a regular basis.  Let us make it another great year!!!  #10 is coming in 2017!!!

Sports Card Info Now Has Pins!!!

Look what Santa brought!!!  Sports Card Info now has it’s own batch of lapel pins.  These were made by Wilson Pins.  I plan to hand these out when I go to events like the Little League World Series and National Sports Collectors Convention.  I’ve got 150 of these bad boys to give out.  Don’t be surprised if you see some popup in the weekly contest(s) as well.

These are probably one of my favorite Christmas gifts ever.  I like items that have Sports Card Info’s name on them.  Especially when I can give them away.  The Sports Card Info pins will be the #1 collectible in 2016!!!
