yahoo1Does this look familiar? The story about the Red Stockings 1869 Peck & Snyder baseball card found in Fresno, Calif., is making the rounds on the Internet this week, and this morning it hit the front page of Yahoo.  While you’re reading that story, probably for the first or second time, remember who brought that to you first.  I’m half kidding.

I’m excited for two big reasons today: My friend who wrote the story is getting published everywhere, and secondly,baseball cards are back in national headlines … and it does not involve a certain Derek Jeter card. Love the Internet.

UPDATE: Word is this story could be mentioned TONIGHT on the CBS Evening News With Katie Couric.

UPDATE 2: Now it looks like it could be Friday … something is in the works though.
