I've got a whole bunch of blogs to pimp today. It's a combination of new stuff I've found, a couple of friends who took the plunge, some stuff I'm not sure if I've pimped before, and some people who begged for the pimpin'.
Before I do any pimpin' however, I need some help from my dear readers.
Last week, I found a cool blog I'd never seen before dedicated to someone's collection of cards with the number 5. Every card was number 5 - not serial numbered, mind you - just was number 5 in the set. There was a really slick Frank Robinson oddball card as the top post when I found it. I was lazy and waited to link it in my blogroll, and then...........
Blog go poof.
I can't find the damn thing again for nothin.
If anyone knows what blog this is I'm talking about please post the link in the comments. I want to read this thing and I promise I'll link right away from now on if I can just find this blog again. And now back to your regularly scheduled pimpin'.
Update: FOUND. Thanks to everyone who helped. This blog will take top spot in my next pimpin' post.
Blogger Captain Canuck finally started up his own blog after getting his feet wet over at A Pack A Day. A fellow Braves fan, the man knows how to do a good rant. The poor guy is stuck up in the frozen north with very few card shops so check out his blog and maybe send him a LaRoche card or two to get thim through the cold, cold winter. Warning: He'll send you Hoops.
This could be my favorite blog of all time, I just don't know it yet. Don't believe me? Just look at this. Now look at this. Oh yeah. This is the shiznit. He's also a Padres fan. I am SO happy to find a Padres fan blogging. Now I can pick out the Padres to give a good home while desperately looking for Royals, Indians and Dodgers to send off to other bloggers.

Things Done To Cards
This is a blog I should really be writing for, but I'm having a hard enough time writing for my 12 other blogs. So what is it? It's a blog about cards like this. Cards like this. Cards like this. And, of course, homebrew cards like this. You like cards like that, don't you? Sure, we all do!
Padrographs; Abner to Zimmer
Autograph cards! Everyone loves autograph cards! And almost everyone loves the Padres! (seriously, how can you hate the fryar) AND THIS IS BOTH!
The Topps Archives
If you like strange oddball Topps weirdness (and I loooooves it) this is the blog for you. Each post is a mini history lesson about an obscure set, or maybe the wrappers, or just something fun. We need more of this stuff on the 'net.
Have I linked this one before? I'm not sure. What the hey, I'll do it again. This 'under the radar' blog from an Angels fan has been around since 2004 (!!!) so give one of the old-timers a look. Bonus: Phillie Phanatic!
I know I've had this linked for months, but I don't think I've pimped it yet. Epic A's fan, brilliant artist and lots and lots of A's cards. You know I love the team collectors.
Sports Card Blog
Two posts in, epic rant. This is one to keep an eye on.
I think I've linked these guys before, they just wanted some love from the ol' pimp daddy. Give 'em lots of hits.
30-year Old Cardboard
Loves the Fergies, loves the Billys, loves the Andres. And, of course, 30-year old cardboard. Also did something that I've been thinking about doing for over a year, but never got around to: Ticket Stubs! This is a regular read for me.
garvey cey russell lopes
what more is there to say besides
oh, give him some dodgers cards, i can say that too
Need More Morneau
great reviews, great rants, NO RSS FEED! Dude, you're killing me. Get a feed so I can put you over on the sidebar and I'll give you some Morneau cards. You'll get more hits too.
Update: NOW WITH FEED! I can put it over on the side now.
West Virginia Cards
I'm not sure Billy even asked to be pimped, but I'm doing it anyway. Besides, Sta-Puft Mashmallow Man!!! Oops, I mean, Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man!!!
Stop the presses!!!
While I was typing out this post I got one last pimpin' request! From Steveisjewish! Here's his brand new blog!
