Last of the COMC Black Friday haul
Wow.  Do I know how to stretch out a post series or what? Trying to maximize the free shipping I picked up some cards that typical collectors (okay, Night Owl is not a typical collector, but you'll see where I'm going soon enough) might not care for. The fi...

A guide to cricket guides
In a similar vein to the New Old Base Ball Guides post I've collected a list of Spalding Guides for Cricket. "But wait. This is supposed to be a baseball blog."  Yeah, whatever. The two sports are probably form the same mother sport, or at least in the sa...
