The $2.5 Million Baseball Card Midweek Open Trackbacks

Posted by Adam Graham on February 27, 2007

The 1909 T-206 Honus Wagner Baseball card sold for $2.3 million. Baseball card collectors takie hope. Yes, Baseball Cards aren’t exactly mutual funds (and my financial advisors inform me you can’t put them in retirement) but those who’ve held onto the collection may be sitting on a gold mind one of these days. So, honey, those 4 box of cards could someday make us a billionaire.

Until then, I’ll use Open Trackback Parties to promote the blog. Now, onto the party. First, the rules:

1) Post about anything that’s in good taste. No porn, no spam, no profanity.
2) Send me a trackback of any tasteful post you want and as soon as I check my blog, I’ll update this post with your link provided you link back to this thread. If your software won’t allow you to send trackbacks, just use the Wizbang Standalone Pinger.
3) Deadline is Wednesday at 11:00 PM MT. Further trackbacks won’t be posted after that time.

For your convenience here’s today’s link. If you’re a registered user, the, trackback should appear below. If not, here’s the process:

Enter the characters as shown in the box and something like this should appear

This is a Trackback URL that’s good one time only so that we can seperate humans from spammer bots.

Below are other great parties:

The Younglings — (I Don’t Wanna Be No) Nerf Herder
Okay, so there’ TWO videos of the day. So there! I had a list of videos on YouTube with “Nerf Herder” (I was looking for the band of that name) and this video by The Younglings came up. It’s hip-hop in the Star Wars universe. ‘Nuff said.

A very logi…

Nerf Herder — Mr. Spock
I can’t remember where I first saw this video but it definitely made am impression on me. Since I am an admitted Trekkie from the days of the original series (I’m dating myself but I was a wee rug rat when it originally aired in the 60’s — I really go…

Short lived blogs – and other stuff
As I was browsing through random blogs on Blogshares today, I noticed a pattern. A lot of the “dead” blogs either have only one or two posts before they’re abandoned, usually a “hello world this is my blog” post and an occasional followup. A lot of t…

Guess where the town of Loxahatchee Groves is having a candidate forum for upcoming city council races? A nudist colony. Isn’t this a great state or what?

Two picks for the Baseball Hall of Fame
The composite ballot has some good choices in Kuhn, Herzog, White, Williams and Wrigley. It also has Bravasi and gag…gag…Gabe Paul. Should I start re-telling 1970’s and 80’s Cleveland Indian jokes?
