Type Site: Emerald City Diamond Gems

New #5 type set follower Mariner1 does just what you might guess, collect lots and lots of Seattle Mariner cards. He's got (almost?) every regular and traded card from 1977 to 2010, a total of over 1000.

His Emerald City Diamond Gems blog just started in Feb, but already touched on two subjects close to my heart: Retro Mariners and the 1980 Topps set.

Don't remember if I started in 1979 or 1980 myself, but that J. R. Richard card stirs up some good memories. Here's a classy throwback from Seattle's early days.

Love the helmet!

Thanks for the praise. I hope to be as good as some of you on the blogs someday. It's nice to know people read my stuff. Thanks again!

You're welcome and keep up the good work. Looking forward to the 2010 M's proving defense wins championships... (knock wood)
