The 20 Greatest Sports Card Blogs of All Time

This is an updated/revised list from my posts from a year ago in November of 2011.  I have been reading Sports Card Blogs daily since early 2008, First, at Baseball Card and now at Bdj610’s blog roll. As I mentioned last year this fact qualifies me as an expert to create this list.  This is a cumulative list from 2008 to 2012.  All Time is a relative term.

First, I would like to say the number of bloggers and posts have increased substantially over the years which makes putting this list together much much harder. Except for the Number 1 (especially) and Number 2 on this list, the distance between number 3 and the honorable mentions is not great.  I believe in mathematical terms this is called regression to the mean.  As I mentioned last year, to make the list it helps to post regularly, be about cards, cards and more cards and view cards in a way to enlighten all of us. 

Without further Freddy Adu here is the list. (The number in parenthesis is where the blog was rated through last year.)

1. Night Owl Cards (if he did not post for another 10 years, he probably still make this list) (1)
2. Wrigley Wax (2)

4. The Topps Archives (4)
5. Card Board Junkie (Election Night, Wacky Packies, Instant Classic) (3)
