So in three years, the blogroll has listed just under 500 blogs dedicated to the Hobby we all share...Sports Cards. Many have come and gone over the years. All were filled with promise, all had potential, and most certainly, all made their marks in the blogging community. Whether the purpose was to inform the collecting public about the latest products, give their opinions about anything regarding the Hobby, have an open access to trading, or just to entertain, the bloggers who devote time and energy to their individual sites show how much passion they have about the cards, the teams, the players, and the sports they love.
Since the last blogroll post, the SCB reached a blogroll high 341 blogs. With 326 blogs going into July, that means that 15 new blogs were added to the active roster. A number of existing blogs were also revised to update their new or proper names:
- Sports Card Memorabilia is now listed properly as Sports Collectors Daily,
- the legendary Wax Heaven was renamed Card Collector Digest,
- and the Basketball Card Blog/The Retro-Addict is now Batum Cards and Sports Chat
To that end, every month, I list the blogs that I am removing here for posterity. One reader suggested that I create a kind of Sports Card Blog Purgatory/Graveyard (not necessarily in those words) when I thought of possibly creating a bloglist of the inactive blogs that were removed over the years. I think that's a good way of keeping tabs of blogs from long ago, and in the event the blog writer finds his or her muse, and comes back, at least I would know to add them back as soon as possible.
Today, the blogroll removes the following sites from the active roster:
- B.C.C.M.'s Your Favorite Card
- 90's Box Breaks
- Stax of Wax Pax
- Memorabilia Museum
- On Card Autos
- JD's Wild Cardz
- 1,000,000 Cards for Kids
- PAW's SportsCards & Sports Waging blog, BLOG!!
- Mike Pelfrey's Collectibles
- The Nitty Gritty
- 1967 Football Cards
As always, if you or someone you know has a blog that focuses on the Hobby of Sports Card collecting, please let me know about it by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're blog is being removed, or is no longer on the site, but you are planning on writing again, let me know that as well.
To all who use the Sports Card Blogroll as part of your daily trip around the Internet, I thank you for stopping by and making the SCBR one of your stops along the way. As I often tell up and coming bloggers upon joining the Community, "enjoy the journey."
