Shameless self promotion
In addition to occasionally writing for this blog, I do my own blog called Capewood's Collections. But you already know this because my blog is listed in the side bar.
I've been toying with doing a baseball card only blog of my own. I got some encouraging feedback on my idea from several bloggers (including Steve here) so I've gone forward with my idea of making what will essentially be an on-line encyclopedia of baseball cards. Some of the feedback I got suggested this would be better done as a wiki instead of a blog. I had no idea how to set up such a thing but it turned out to be easier than I thought. And this will work better as a wiki (after all a wiki is designed to be an on-line encyclopedia).
The site is ready for the public. It can be found at http://baseballcardref.pbwiki.com/. I'd appreciate it if you'd check it out and visit often. I am open to suggestions on how to make it better. At some point I may solicit other contributors but its too early for that.
I'm starting with cards from 1980. The Pete Rose card is the first card to be posted.
