Found April 07, 2012 on Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
I completed my fifth trade with fellow Greg, Greg, from the legendary Night Owl Cards. You can find the first here, second here, third here, and fourth here. Our late night friend was interested in a duplicate Josh Lindblom Sterling RC Auto I had, and sent along some nice PC additions in return for the John Hancock.First up, The Bison. I believe this is an exclusive retail parallel from Target. I think....Next up, Mr. Cy Young, Kid K. All chromed out, which my scanner isn't terribly fond of. Kersh is numbered, 0248/1962.A Ginter mini with a Ginter Back! Wooo! My Russ PC continues to chug along nicely as it nears 200 cards.I requested a wrapper from Greg when he posted some Heritage, because Dirtbag alum Evan Longoria graces said wrapper, and I won't be buying any myself. He kindly obliged my request.Finally, random awesomeness. Campy, Sandy, Jackie, and Duke (in cloth form) shall always be scanned.Thanks for the great trade Greg! Oh, and since you once upon a time requested ...

Gordon's hit in 11th lifts Dodgers

New Dodgers owners can’t say anything bad about scumbag Frank McCourt

Frank McCourt is one of the biggest s***heads MLB has ever seen, but you won’t be able to tell based on the words of the soon-to-be new team owners.

As LBS contributor Alan Hull pointed out to us, the purchase agreement “includes a non-disparagement clause, preventing the purchaser...

L.A. Dodgers bullpen decision: Mattingly picks Lindblom over Rice

Of all the final cuts from MLB camps, the termination of 2011 York (PA) Revolution southpaw Scott Rice was about as disappointing as any. Starting his 14th professional year without a regular season appearance in the majors, the 30-year-old was a candidate for the Los Angeles Dodgers’ bullpen until the final cut to make the 25-man roster when the 6-foot-6 Rice lost out to 24-year...
