The One Card Challenge

Greg, the Night Owl, has nothing better to do than to juggle a few great blogs, work, blog some more.  And devise the One Card Challenge.

He asked for some help in designing a graphic.  I took a stab at it.  I searched the web for images of checklists, found one at, snagged it and went to town.

I chose #7, Bill Monbouquette as the player that hasn't been collected because I like the name and I find it ironic that someone could find all the other players, including Hall of Famers, before they found Bill.

Greg was enamored by my graphic abilities and has decided to use it.  I'm honored that he's using it for the One-Card Challenge.  Look through your wantlists and see what you're lacking.  Post a comment on the OCC and see what happens.  In a few hours my card want was filled by Reader Jim.  See, it works.

Tonight while I was looking for the site that I lifted the original image from I came across the Cards That Never Were blog.  Just two weeks ago he used the same card for a fictitious card.

Some would cry, "Foul. Plagarism. Bidenism." But, truth be told, I have not visited this blog in many a moon.  I should've, but I didn't.  I just 'followed' it now and have added it to my blogroll.


  1. "Foul. Plagiarism, Bidenism." Sounds like a great name for a blog filled with fake baseball cards. Mind if I borrow it?

  2. I like it because it reminds me of my 1960 Topps team set. I have the Yaz RC but ironically I still need #544 Bill Monbouquette.
