Great Sports Card Twitter Follows

A few weeks ago, I featured some of my favorite sports card blogs. Now I want to feature some of my favorite sports card related Twitter accounts that deserve a follow for their information, their personality, or whatever else I feel determines a good follow. I’ll list out my top 10 of my favorite sports card related Twitter follows and let you go see for yourself. To start, if you aren’t following me on Twitter, you can follow me here.

@stalegum – His take on sports cards is both interesting and sometimes vulgar. But it’s definitely worth the time to read.

@VOTC – The Voice of the Collector, opinionated but down to earth on his views of sports cards.

@RyanTatsuko – A professional baseball player who loves collecting baseball cards, how cool is that?

@dougology – Another member of the Cardboard Connection gang with @VOTC, I like his mix of humor and sports cards.

@chrisolds2009 – Beckett’s own. Editor of several Beckett’s price guides.

@LongFlyBall – A Canadian’s take on baseball cards and occasionally hockey.

@FieldLevelView – A solid Twitter commentary on sports cards.

@brentandbecca – A product case breaker with great insight on products.

@TomTheRipper – Why do I like his tweets? I don’t know. They are weird and sometimes about sports cards, but I like weird. He’s also the guy who does all the video production stuff for Panini.

@cardboardicons – Another blogger who is a great read on Twitter, like most of the above listed.

So those are 10 of my favorite Twitter follows. I follow 100+ people for one reason or another, so all of them are good follows to me, but these are some of my favorite.

And as a shout out to the actual companies, if you’re a collector you need to be following @PaniniAmerica @UpperDeckSports @toppscards @InTheGame @Leaf_Cards

My Top Favorite Sports Card Blogs

I decided tonight I would share some of my personal favorite sports card blogs and write a little something about them. Most of these blogs have some interesting things about them that make them unique to others out there. Here’s some of my personal favorites for you to check out.

Cardboard Junkie – Dayf is quite the interesting character. He loves his Atlanta Braves, baseball cards, and currently ponies. Don’t be surprised to see a picture of a pony from My Little Pony thrown in there every once and awhile. He has a funny and interesting take on cards he adds to his collection whether it’s a new Braves card or a new vintage card to complete a set. His blog constantly keeps me entertained with cards, ponies, and sketches he does.

All About Cards – All About Cards is one of my favorite places to read reviews of card products. I often compare my reviews to his to see if I am going off the wall on a certain little thing or if I love something a little too much. His level headed approach to reviewing is similar to mine and I find them to be fair and balanced no matter who the manufacturer is.

Mojo Beard – While Kevin has taken the reigns as the person who blogs the most on this multiple authored blog, I like his take on a lot of cards and he always has some interesting perspective on cards and collecting. Every once and awhile we’ll see a post from Mojo or Beardy and that is always a treat that is filled with some humor and fun.

Night Owl Cards – Probably the blogger favorite right now amongst every sports or baseball card bloggers and reader out there, Night Owl has a fascination with baseball cards pictured when the sun is on the other side of the earth. A fan of the Dodgers, he is always displaying new Dodgers cards and new cards he gets to complete his sets. Definitely a fun read.

Field Level View – He doesn’t write as much as he wants to, but his perspective on his reviews are pretty solid. It’s fun watching him on his YouTube breaks getting angry at the card companies for something he feels was slighted in a product, but that’s what makes him good at reviews…he doesn’t hold back.

I would include some manufacturer blogs as well, but we should all know the ones that actually post on a consistent basis. The Knight’s Lance (Panini) and The Upper Deck Blog. I really wish that Topps would post more on their blog the way Tracy and Chris post on their respective blogs, but if I wish in one hand and crap in another…or however that quote goes.

There are a few that should get some love too like Stale Gum (who doesn’t post enough), Play at the Plate, SewingMachineGuy, and A Cardboard Problem (whom both ladies also don’t post enough).

Of course there are more great blogs out there, but I find myself visiting these most often. Strangely enough, most of these are strictly baseball cards blogs but I like their writing styles. For a more complete list of all the blogs out there, check out the official Sports Card Blogroll. You’ll find something there that wets your appetite.
