Fun and games galore today. Today is the long-awaited MLB Opening Day! It’s also the start of fantasy baseball! And today is also something else (it’s on the tip of my keyboard…hmm).
Pardon me for not posting in awhile. I’ve been pretty busy setting up a fantasy baseball league on the Trading Card Database (TCDb.com). It’s a 12-team head-to-head league and we’re playing for card prizes. Determining prize card criteria and prize distribution has been pretty time-consuming but fun too. I ended up with the 9th pick in the draft:
And pardon me for posting this so late in the day. I’m watching the Dodgers open the season against Colorado while composing this post. Maybe I should have written this yesterday? Nope–yesterday I had some eBay auctions, a fantasy baseball draft and a nice eBay mailday that all needed my attention.
Speaking of attention, let’s turn ours to our featured card shown above. It’s a glorious 1984 Topps Glossy All-Stars card of 1983 All-Star Steve Sax. This insert set (one card per rack pack) and design have always been underrated in my view. Mr. Sax spent 14 seasons in the Show, including eight with the Dodgers and two with the Chicago White Sox. He was the 1982 NL Rookie of the Year, a five-time All-Star and stole 444 bases during his career. He can also be heard on SiriusXM’s MLB Network Radio (MLB Roundtrip and Hot Stove). And here’s an early Easter Egg for you–check out this eggstremely eggcellent blog post featuring card #6 of this set.
For our last little bit of fun, I could use some help with a crossword puzzle. This crossword is from the Sunday Los Angeles Times newspaper (March 23rd). Anybody know the answer to 38 Across? I should know it but the answer’s on the tip of my pencil…
Searching for something to say, stay tuned…

Hmmm, Panini doesn’t seem to fit in the squares provided!
It’s Topps. I am guessing you know that but I suck at recognizing jokes or sarcasm. I used to try the LA Times crossword when I lived in socal.
It’s obvioulsly “Fleer”
