You've hopefully read the first post of the month, honoring the baseball players who passed away in 2009 and are now playing in the cornfields of Iowa (in a figurative sense). Here is what else to expect this month:
- More All-Star Teams from the past (and the results of simulated games if they did play against each other...the 1988 results are coming soon).
- The deadline to turn in your guesses for the All-Star Rookie Team contest has passed. I am no longer accepting entries. To those who submitted their guesses, thank you very much. As soon as the official team is made public, winners will be announced here soon after.
- Barring any unforeseen monetary issues, I am going to buy a jumbo box of 2009 Topps U & H (as well as a complete master set on the Bay if possible). Box breaks and the shortprint begging will commence.
- I am going over the old Beckett Magazines (I have not forgotten this task...). E-mails will be going out to those who had previously inquired about certain magazines. I do have a whole run of Beckett Baseball magazines from 2000 until when they stopped the monthly presses (to that multi-sport thing), so if you're looking for a particular issue (excluding the Rookie Rolodexes, or the special Topps issue from 2001...I'm keeping those), send me an e-mail with your request and an address, and it's yours.
- The monthly comment mailbag will return, with lots of comments to review and questions to answer.
- Any news that gets my attention will be posted here.
That's should keep me busy until the holidays. I hope. Until next time...
