Card Flipping.

Well that didn't take long. Seven months after it became the first trading card to sell for over $2 million, "The Card" has changed hands again.

According to the "McNall Gretzky" T-206 Honus Wagner was sold for $2.8 million. The transaction was brokered by SCP Auctions, and both buyer and seller remain anonymous.

Chronicling our pack-a-day habit.

So Ben Henry e-mails me the other day with a great idea for a project. Have someone live-blog the opening of a pack of cards everyday.

"Sounds great! Sign me up," I replied. I immediately ran out to Target and bought two Blasters of TA&G.

So if you get a chance, check out our new joint-blog: A Pack A Day. And if you want to get in on the live-blogging action, feel free to give me a holler.

"A Pack A Day, that's all we ask of The Hobby!"
