Now, a note about the blog. I said before, in my 100th post, that I don't think I can maintain my pace of daily posting without running out of material. When I started this blog in August, I set a goal for myself of daily posts for 3 months. When 3 months came and went, I didn't want to slow down, and decided to keep posting daily for a bit longer. I made it through the end of 2017, but now I think it's time to shift down a bit. Starting tomorrow, I'll be posting 4 times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
As long as I'm talking about the blog itself, let me say that I so appreciate everyone who has taken the time to read. I started this blog to record stories about the baseball cards that I loved as a kid, and since then I've also discovered the joy of using internet commerce to round out my collection. I love sharing both my old stories and cards and my new additions, and I've enjoyed discovering all the other card blogs that are out there (and have been out there for years). It's very gratifying to participate in the conversation, to be a part of a community of cardbloggers, and to know that there are people out there listening.
Now, since this is indeed a card blog, I think I should have a card in each post. So I thought I would add my favorite card of 2017, as other cardbloggers have been doing. That's a bit hard for me, though, since I don't focus on modern cards. I have a very small number of cards (only 17, I think) that are post-1994.

So, that's it for 2017. Again, Happy New Year, and thanks for reading. The new posting schedule starts tomorrow.
