Found this site on shopping on MiLB.com - Ebbets Field Flannels. They specialize in vintage baseball caps and jerseys. I like their approach to design because they go out of their way to really create authentic baseball memorabilia. Pretty cool stuff – I have a Havana Sugar Kings hat on my x-mas list! (size 7 3/8)

I won the first best out of 3 playoff series and tied up the championship series 1 to 1 in one of my fantasy baseball leagues. In anticipation of a nice payday I’m looking to get a nicer than usual T206 card. I like buying baseball cards better than blowing winnings on something like a TV because the card is an asset that will appreciate over time. I checked eBay and have some cards in mind: John McGraw, Cy Young, Walter Johnson (portrait, I already have his other card), Tris Speaker, Christy Mathewson, and Nap Lajoie.

I say Ryan hit 2 home runs against the Nationals this year but missed my pre-game chance to get his autograph. I decided to take a total shot in the dark and mail a baseball with self addressed return mailer to him at the Brewers ballpark. I was totally psyched when I got the ball back 2 weeks later.
Ryan Braun’s 3 run home run late Sunday afternoon got one of my fantasy baseball teams into the finals – pretty sure he’s my favorite ball player at this point.
