2015 - The Year in Review

2015 was another great year here on Shoebox Legends.  A seemingly infinite number of awesome cards became part of my collection, I traded more cards to more people than any previous year, and I beat my highest post total for a year by more than 70 posts!

Here's where my cataloged collection sits this December 31st, by the numbers:

Baseball - 21,642
Hockey - 18,000 (even, what are the odds of that?!?!)
Non-Sports -324
Football - 117
Soccer -134
Basketball -81

Other items of note; up to 5,372 unique Red Sox cards, and 1,491 unique Whalers cards and counting. 

Alright enough statistics that nobody except me cares about, here are some of my favorite cards featured on the blog in 2015...



















































































































Phew!  As I said, quite a year!  Happy New Year's everyone!  I hope you'll stop by often in 2016, I think my 9th year of running the blog will be my best one yet!

No, wait, I do have something to say about the card of Al Arbour with the Stanley Cup: BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Old habits die hard. :-)
