The 792: Gallery 379-396

So here I was, scanning away. I had a whole mess of cards for The 792 all squared away and ready to post. I saw Ben had posted another part of the list and I felt good knowing that once these suckers were all on my hard drive it would be smooth sailing from there. Then I read the comments. This... is the blogging equivalent of the A-Rod Bullshit Waste of Space?? This??!? The thing I've spent quite a lot of time on???

Needless to say I was wounded. Nay, crushed. I pretty much spent the past week curled up naked in the fetal position opening old wax packs from the mid 80's and weeping bitter tears. Are you surprised at my tears, sir?

Strong men also cry. . . Strong men also cry!

Ya know what? Fuck all you haters. I'm postin' 'em all. And guess what? We're metaphorically only up to 2007 Topps Series Two right now so you got a LOT more A-Rods to come. On with the show!!!

Hah. Weep not. This has been thorough. Informative. Historically significant. There are no irrelevant photos. Please uncurl from the fetal position and don't stop scanning.

Man, don't listen to the haters. For every hater that posts, there are a thousand people that appreciate what you are doing, even if we don't say it. Keep up the great work, I love seeing the card scans, especially since I don't have most of the pre-1986 stuff.

Just tell all the haters this:

"The bums lost... CONDOLENCES!"
