The Status Of Birth Years Cards

All the 2009 Birth Years cards are now complete. There were 52 cards in all, including bonus cards.

So where does this leave the set? I am happy to announce that this popular virtual card set will continue!

After the season starts, there will be additions for 2010. There will not be any repeat subjects. This means that there will be no 2010 card for Mark Buehrle, Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski and many others.

Depending on how Spring Training shapes up and who breaks with the team, expect new cards of players like Mark Teahen, Juan Pierre, Andruw Jones and whoever else who plays their first game with the White Sox in 2010.

I bet you are wondering what is happening to other players, who were with the team earlier. Good news, everyone! I will start making those available too. Starting in the 2008 season and working my way back, I will make Birth Year cards for players like Ken Griffey Jr., Orlando Cabrera and other standouts from the 2008 season that aren't already immortalized with a card in this set. When 2008 is done, it will be on to 2007, and so on.

Hopefully, everyone who played with the White Sox, in the last sixty years, will get their very own birth year card. Any player before that will be regulated to the WSC Vintage series.

Am I the first to say Topps should have you creating a birth year set as a commercial release? Probably not, so I'll say it again.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I'm all for that!
