Future ingredients for the best jersey cards ever made.

The Before and After of David Freese's jersey, shredded by joy.

There's nothing like an epic baseball game to shake people out of their baseball doldrums...and last night's rapid-fire, bizarro-world, what are they thinking?, OMG World Series Game 6 did just that. After months of inexplicable torpor, suddenly we cared about baseball again. The corporate tinge faded, the overpaid galoot factor didn't matter, and everything crystallized into a perfect baseballian tangle of wonderful moments.

We hope you'll forgive us for disappearing and we hope you'll have us back, although there's no telling what we'll actually write about....bb cardboard is so well covered on the intertubes these days! Amazin'.

Welcome back! We've missed you - a great game 7 surprise on the blogs!

I will never forget that game and its spectacular events for as long as I live. Much like Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS was much more dramatic and amazing (sorry) than the entire World Series, this year's World Series Game 6 made Game 7 look just a bit more ordinary.

Cardboard is well covered, but not from a unique perspective like yours! I welcome you back as one of my all-time favorites. I get tired of all the hype about unaccomplished rookies and super mojo hits. But will always welcome another post about smiling and flying players.
