Going dark for a few days....

I am on pace to have my 1,000th post on November 1st.  Because I have something big planned for hitting the millennium mark I am going to not post for a couple days so that I don't mess up the flow of SaveSecondBase event, it's recap, the World Series review, and any other blog worthy posts that may come up.

For the past few years I have averaged about 350 posts a year, missing only about one entry per month and keeping a fairly regular daily schedule of posts.

In preparation for my 1,000th post on this blog I have something big planned.  Details will be released after the Save Second Base Event I run each year.  Again, I promise this year's prizes for Save Second Base will be the biggest prizes I have given out over the course of my annual event.

If you haven't already entered my first contest, please visit the Post Here to enter multiple prizes that are available.

I will return to the blogging world early next week.

In the meantime....

It's going to be a little dark and absent of new enrries for a few days.
Here are my three WalMart black cards of Cutch.

Topps began their black Wal-Mart exclusives in 2009

It continued into 2010
And finished in 2011 Series 2.
As we all know from Troutmania, WalMart changed their exclusive parallel to a blue border parallel in 2011 Update.


  1. I'm excited to see what you've got planned for your 1,000th post and the Save Second Base event. Enjoy your break!

  2. 1,000! That's amazing!

  3. Enjoy the slight break. And even though it's a bit early, congrats and 1K!

  4. You know once you go dark you never..... well....

    Looking forward to 1K!

    1. It is gonna be a little ridiculous what I have planned to show off

  5. Not sure what I'm impressed with more...

    A. averaging 350 posts a year. that's insanely awesome! congratulations

    B. you're able to plan things out this far in advance. i'm super jealous.

    1. I have been working on the Save2ndBase event for the past 11 months, picking up cards for the contests and cards to show off. Once I saw I had only 70 posts left until I hit 1,000 I knew I had to not post for a few days so I wouldn't interfere with the event. I want to make the pink event and 1K event flow fluidly and give them both the attention they deserve.
