Type Site: Poor Old Baseball Cards

A blog after my own heart, the Poor Old Baseball Cards site examines what can happen on the wrong end of bike spokes, a ballpoint pen, or life's vicissitudes. Some posts feature cards that are simply low grade, others discuss kids who care too much, and one even called out Topps for questionable prognostication.

Favorite Post: I love cards old enough to show up in an antique bin. On June 14, 2009, POBC profiled one Jack Barry from the E90-1 American Caramel set. E90-1s came out between 1909 and 1911 and include a ton of big names from baseball's early years.

Although part of the $100,000 infield, Jack looks to be practicing for a "Ten Lords a-Leaping" rehearsal in front of a very pastoral setting. Not a pose you're going to find in today's manly sets!
