Default Announcing New Blog

Based on the encouragement I received from some members of this board plus my own resolve to enter the 21st century, I have created a blog about baseball pinback buttons. Occasionally I will write about pinbacks from other sports. The blog features both pictures of pinbacks as well as background information about the pins featured. The blog is not just a photo dump of images. I conclude each blog with a listing of what will be the next column. Currently there are two columns, an Introduction and then my opening column that is on the Luxello Cigar Pin Set. I still have much to learn about scanning images, so please be patient with the lack of refinement in some presentations. As I stated in the Introduction, I will try to write one or two columns per month, maybe more if time permits and I acquire some proficiency in doing this. The purpose of the blog is to share information about baseball pinback buttons. I welcome your feedback and suggestions.

The address is baseballpinbackbuttons.wordpress.com

Paul,

If your blog delivers even a minuscule fraction of the amount of information your book on baseball pinbacks has, it will be a tremendous asset to the hobby.

Looking forward to reading it on a regular basis.

Rob

Thank you for your words of support. The narrative text comes from notes I have taken over the years. That part is real easy. The hard part for me is the scanning and the placement of images within the text. If I ever get proficient with it I could easily do a column per week. For Mike in Michigan I have several columns planned for your Cubs. For BrooklynDodger55 Mike, I have a column planned for your favorite team and year. I hope the Net54 members enjoy reading these columns as much as I do in presenting them.

Best,

Paul

Paul this is great news! I'm sure it will all be interesting but I am really looking forward to info on Cubs issues. Hope this includes Certified Ice Cream and American Badge (subtle hint). But honestly, thanks for doing this.
