Here’s some history for today in case you missed it:
I updated all of the Card of the Day articles, 56 in all. Many of the older ones were missing photos from the switchover to this site. All of the articles now have photos again. I have some Prospect Throwback articles to update still, which is on the schedule for tomorrow.
Speaking of the Card of the Day, today’s is a unique pose of Steve Nicosia from the 1982 Fleer set.
This Date in Pirates History: Steve Nicosia gets traded for Milt May, strange how that works out with him being the card of the day…three trades total and three player bios.
