Yes, I've changed the blog look again. I realize that you think this makes me an indecisive malcontent who is never satisfied with anything.
You know me well.
Actually, that's only partially true. The reason I changed the blog template again is because blogger has this new template design thing with more options, and I finally found what I was looking for back when I changed the template the first time. I wanted a dark "night owl" look that wouldn't be too difficult to read. For a long time there was nothing like that. Now there is.
I'd like to say this is the last change I'll make. But I'm not ready to make that commitment. I'll only say that this is my last change -- until I like something better.
But while I'm in my present euphoria over the new look (this is all starting to sound like finding a new girlfriend), I should christen it properly. And the proper way to do these things is a trade post. Trade posts are the foundation on which card blogs are built. Our founding card bloggers wrote trade posts on cave walls, you know. We must continue the tradition.
I am featuring cards from three folks here. One is from reader Steve, one is from Bo of Baseball Cards Come to Life, and one is a surprise package from AdamE of Thoughts and Sox. I remain woefully behind on posting trades. And I'm not doing much better in sending cards out. I will make slow (very slow) progress in this area over the next couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, folks are peppering me with trade requests. I'll try to get to you all.
For example, I did respond to Steve's request. Steve had some '90s Dodgers off my want list and wanted next to nothing for them. That is my kind of request.
2. put a card of Greg Gagne in their collection.
