Sometimes I just can't help it. Admittedly, it makes me feel self-conscious, wondering if anybody has noticed how often I've done it. I even tell myself I shouldn't do it so much, and I should ease up a bit. But let me tell you, it just feels so good to pick at A Crack....ed Bat's Pickpockets Page!
A Cracked Bat is of course, the delightful blog by Julie. She is among the most generous bloggers out there, and has a whole page devoted to giving away cards. I've taken advantage of her generosity before, and recently she had some fantastic cards to give away which I just couldn't resist. Red Sox, oddballs, Hall of Famers - they were all there ripe for the taking! I picked up a page's worth of assorted goodness:
I also managed to pick a few cards courtesy of Bo from Baseball Cards Come To Life. He won a huge contest over at, you guessed it, A Cracked Bat! Julie sent Bo a ton of cards, and Bo proceeded to spread his good fortune to everyone else. I was more than happy to take a couple of chewy granola Hall of Famers:
Favorite Card: Even though I never got to watch him play, I have a fondness for Louis Tiant. That Senior League card is fantastic, and I bet he could still throw a few fastballs if he wanted to.
Thanks for the cards Julie and Bo!
