A Return to Innocence

mouseBack in September I discovered the Stat of the Day blog and I've enjoyed it daily ever since. One of the writers there is Andy and for fun he just started a new blog I'm absolutely loving. He's going through all 792 Topps baseball cards one by one, explaining why the card is awesome and sharing a cool stat about the player. His 88 Topps Cards blog can be found at http://88topps.blogspot.com/.

I'm loving this new blog for two reasons. Firstly, I collected Topps baseball cards in the '80s. We had bags of 'em dating back to 1983. I loved those cards. Secondly, I really miss this era of baseball. I was young and in love with the sport and my Jays and I didn't have a clue about luxury taxes or performance enhancing drugs.

In a nutshell, revisiting the 1988 Topps baseball cards is like a return to innocence. When a blog gives you that, it's something awfully special.

I was more a hockey card kid. I've got sets of them around here somewhere. I collected some of the Upper Deck baseball cards when they first came out though, they were pretty high quality cards.
