A year ago today, I started this blog with a card of Fred Lynn and a hope to continue updating once each day. So far, so good. A few times, technical difficulties caused me to pull double-duty the day after, but before this post, we stood at 366 posts for 366 days. I've shared autographed and relic cards as well as cards pulled from cereal boxes. There has been a weekly feature on vintage cards dating back to 1954, and several cards from 2008. I've talked about my meetings with some of the Oriole greats, and I've shared anecdotes about players that I read from articles and books. There have been embarrassing (and hopefully amusing) personal remembrances, and glimpses of games from years past. I launched my pet project, a website about the Orioles uniform numbers throughout history.
Most importantly, I discovered a dedicated readership. Without your comments, support, and suggestions, this blog would only be so much navel-gazing. Your cardboard contributions, both through generous donations and through trades, have greatly increased my collection and broadened the variety of cards I have to choose from when I put together my daily post. You guys and gals give me the extra push that I sometimes need to keep writing. Thanks for a great year, and here's to another one!
