Responses to Comments...Again.

Now it's time to respond to some comments recently left by those who read and/or follow the blog.

To new friend of the blog the drizz, who commented on the video...I was referring to the post below it when I mentioned "throw me something I can use." On an unrelated note, do you have an extra 2008 Topps Tigers gift set or an extra pack of the five bonus Tigers cards from the factory set? If so, please e-mail me.

To jv over at Treasures Never Buried, who asked if the video came from Topps. Sadly, it looks like it did. I think Topps should just stick to sell sheets and stay away from the digital video cameras.

To Greg and the gentleman from White Sox Cards, who are concerned about two Kosuke Fukudome cards in the Updates and Highlights set, I think one is his "base" card, and the other will be his "2008 All-Star Game" card. The big gimmick regarding Kosuke cards could be the fact that the boys and girls at the Topps Company have already inserted a UH1 card of Fukudome in their 2008 Topps Hobby Factory Sets. Who knows what the actual UH1 card will look like. And if does turn out to be the same card that appeared in the factory sets, does that mean that they will have made more of this card than the rest of the set? What if the only way to get UH1 was to break open the Hobby factory set and they decided not to include the card in packs at all?

To Matt, who commented on my optimism regarding the Brewers being contenders next year and Ben Sheets. Yeah, you're right. Maybe I should have put Yovani Gallardo instead of Sheets as it is most likely that he will be leaving Milwaukee at the end of the year. Shame though. But I still believe that the offense will eventually mature enough to keep them in contention for a number of years.

That's all for now. Keep those comments coming. Send me an e-mail and let me know what you think of the blog. I really like to know what you the readers think (the maybe five-ten of you that do).

Reason I asked about the Topps video was because there is a quick reference to "wax heaven" at the end. I didn't consider it to be on accident and it would make sense if it were made by a collector.

However, if it were made by Topps and if were more than just a peculiar coincidence of wording, then it would appear that Topps referenced a card blogger. Given past histories, this wouldn't make sense to me.

All that being said, I hope that the wording was an actual plug for Mario and that the video was actually made by Topps. That would mean that the Card Bloggers are on the verge of being recognized as important in the eyes of the card companies.

Hey JayBee,

I took a survey from Tuff Stuff and in the survey they asked for my favorite blog and I responded that your blog is my favorite.
