The Blogs: NightOwlCards

I started reading card blogs recently and Night Owl Cards was the first (strong ’75 card connection). At some point it became a mission to read the entire blog from post #1.

The goal was to catchup up on card collecting over the past 7 years through a blogger’s experiences. I set aside other reading material and focused on that blog. It took almost 3 weeks to finish. At some point it reminded me of completing a set – just two more years of posts to read…

One of my favorite post categories is the Best of the 70’s, which shows all (or some) of a player’s 70’s cards. I had thought of doing something similar but will never have enough cards. So I’m glad he’s writing these (I think we need some more, I only found two last year, and one mini version this year – updated 8/4/15: added Lou Brock).

I’ve compiled a list so I can easily refer back to them. Maybe they’ll be useful for you too:
