Welcome to ’30-Year Old Cardboard’!!!
My name is Brian Applebaum and I have created this blog to re-capture my enjoyment of writing while sharing my love for the sport of baseball and the hobby of collecting baseball cards and memorabilia.
’30-YOC’ began in August of 2008 and has been going strong ever since!!
I was a ‘baseball card kid’ during my youth and my collecting spirit was rekindled during the summer of 2008. Since that time I have built a very meaningful collection of cards from yesteryear that pay homage to the stars from my youth. I enjoy sharing my collection with the readers of this blog and will continue to post my new additions as they are obtained.
I am also somewhat of an ‘autograph hound’. And while I am not the guy chasing players through parking lots with a binder full of cards, I do enjoy the quest of seeking out autographs. And if I am able to score the signature of a player that I grew up admiring, I will usually go all out!!!
Over the past few years I have given my all to entertaining anyone who stops by to visit. Whether it was through my ‘What Ever Happened To…’ series, or my ‘Did You Know’ series or even my ‘Celebrity First Pitch’ series, I have made a conscious effort to keep the content of this blog fresh and fun. Other notable series’ would include my ‘Hall Of Fame Debate’, ‘Top Ten List’, and ‘Million Dollar Question’.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy yourself some ’30-Year Old Cardboard’. All I ask is that you check back often. If you like what you read, let me hear it. And if you don’t, I want to know that too.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out ’30-Year Old cardboard’!!
