When Baseball Cards Were King

Over the next few weeks I'm going to provide inside information about some of my favorite story links. 

When Baseball Cards Were King

The hobby that introduced me to the game of baseball was the collection of baseball cards. 

Buying packs of 'cardboard gold' during my early childhood remains a treasured memory. 

These pre-sabermetric items were mini-encyclopedias in 3-D form. 

So many great moments were shared with family members and friends/classmates in the late 1970s and early 1980s, some of which are listed in this feature. 

'When Baseball Cards Were King' has been one of my most popular features, having been seen by well over 10,000 people since I first wrote it in May, 2011. 

Random personal favorites that I've written over time...
