When you get old you forget about birthdays

Yesterday morning was the eighth anniversary of the launch of this blog. Back then I was young and sprightly and posted things about baseball cards at 5-something in the morning. Now I'm old and cynical and broken and can't function until 11AM even with coffee. In previous years I posted a happy birthday to me thing to commemorate it but I didn't this year because lazy. Still, you can't just ignore the Yogi anniversary so here's eight Yogis that may or may not have been posted here before in honor of eight Years.









yeah I know, recycled pictures.

Maybe next year I can bother to post at least once a week. If you count all the abandoned posts in my draft folder I've actually been very prolific. In my defense I've been busy spouting nonsense on Twitter and doing a Podcast in 2014. And actually sorting and organizing my isht, if I can find a few more sheets I'll have all my sets binder'd from 1971-1983 by the end of the year.

Here's to 2015, may it not be as utter crap as 2014!

Joy of a Completed Set - 2002 Rittenhouse James Bond: Die Another Day


 Because North Korea and Sony (and Paramount) can go suck each other's dicks. Cuba's OK now though.

Remember to read the back of the page down to up! Completely backwards, just like the rest of the fuckin' world in 2014.




I'm on a bit of a Bond kick right now and I need more cards of James in my life.
