Mr. Skybox

Howdy ya'll, my name is Chris and I'm a graduate student in the middle of Kansas with an obsession for baseball cards. Growing up I was a worthless baseball player. I was a great fielding firstbaseman with no speed and no power... like a 12 year old Doug Mientkiewicz. Nonetheless, my obsession for this great game grew every day as I cheered on the lovable Royals of Kansas City. That's the last time I'll refer to them as lovable.

So what am I looking for in this blog? Well, pretty much just a place to share my thoughts on cards, meet some fellow collectors and keep myself entertained. It'll take me some time to get used to the layouts and things, so expect better posts to come soon.


  1. Welcome aboard Chris, looking forward to keeping up with your blog in the future.

  2. "A twelve year old Doug Mientkiewicz" is the best line I've read today. Looking forward to more posts. As a Padres fan, I can relate to fans of teams that have more lean years than fat.

  3. Amen to that Backstop! It seems that a lot of bloggers cheer for the little guys, maybe we all turned to cards to get away from the pain our teams put us through :/

    I'm excited to follow you as well!

  4. John McLain would say "welcome to the party, pal."
