#1 – I wrote a post a few months ago on Jason Heyward’s impact on the prospecting market. Take everything I said there, multiply it by 10 and you have Stephen Strasburg.
#2 – I was going to write a long post on NBA free agency and the disgusting narcissism of it all. Adrian Wojnarowski wrote a great one though, it is a good read. If this free agent season doesn’t disgust people with the NBA, I don’t know what will. Low collector enthusiasm + bland products + most of the best products being busted abroad = not so good for basketball cards.
#3 – Speaking of good columns, if you like sports editorials and aren’t reading Real Clear Sports daily, you are missing out.
#4 – Speaking of missing out, if you aren’t reading the baseball chat forum, daily, you will miss something. In just the past few weeks, the Bryce Harper Superfractor was pulled, Stephen Strasburg Minis were pulled, there was of course more Razor drama and oh so much more, set your bookmarks accordingly.
#5 – Two of the biggest events in world sports but the most irrelevant events from a sports card perspective happened this summer – Wimbledon and the World Cup.
That’s all for now, what’s the most important thing to happen from a card perspective this summer, in your opinion of course?
