I just saw a very interesting article by Chris Olds over at Beckett, and it seems all those cards we got in the Topps giveaways, mostly commons, will go back to Topps if we dont claim them. Check out the article over at Beckett by clicking here.

JoeThere are plenty of scandals for baseball through the years but today is the day, October 1st, 90 years ago that one of the darkest days in baseball officially began. The throwing of the 1919 World Series by the Chicago White Sox, which lead to eight players  being banned from the game for life. Chris Olds of Beckett takes a look at why we don’t see many cards of “The Black Sox” and why that might all change. Check out the story here.
