Well, no Spanish guitar here this week. I'm torn between two very different videos, so...
Greetings, all... welcome to my (now-almost) annual Hall of Fame announcement post. Few things get my tail as bushy in anticipation as discussion about the Hall of Fame, so here we go!
First, I'll post the voting results released today along with my observations and viewpoints, then will offer a projection for upcoming HOF ballots and see who might get in over the next few years.
As most of you surely know by now, I am a "lover" of baseball cards (as well as hockey, basketball, and non-sports!) and spend a significant amount of time thinking about them, reading about them, and collecting them. I was born in the late 70's and ever since I first spotted the 1982-83 OPC hockey stickers in my local, small-town pharmacy in Saskatchewan, I've been hooked. I moved on to other interests in my teenage years and 20's but came back to it more recently, stronger than ever. With the lockout there is essentially no real-life content to discuss at this time so I plan to create a series of articles about baseball card history, with some other sports mixed in, to a lesser degree. There is no specific plan other than starting in earlier days and making my way to modern times, discussing only topics that interest me, while ignoring those that don't.
Happy 2022! May it be a great year for all of us
My wishes for 2022:
