- "Baseball cards as ephemera": we amass small pieces of cardboard history, mostly plucked from points in a 20th century time line. Ephemera supersets both sport and non-sport collecting and overlaps with the printing, advertising, and paper making industries.
- "George Foster is bad-ass": most 70s hairstyles look foolish now, but Foster's sideburns reign supreme. He still looked good in 80s White Sox garb (1986 Topps card mock-up), not an easy task.
Both worlds collide on Mark's Ephemera, a #5 site follower and "blog about [Mark's] foray into sports card collecting." Typical posts cover new eBay acquisitions, live game trips, and recent trades. He focuses on Hall of Famers, but often profiles others along the way. I particularly enjoyed these recent Foster sightings.
