500 is a special number is baseball.

The 500 Home Run Club is a pretty select group (though the steroid era has diminished it somewhat).

And for Cubs fan, if the team plays .500 ball your happy.

Is there any significance to 500 in the blogging world? Because you are reading Wrigley Wax post #500.

The biggest worry I had when I started the blog was having enough ideas to write about. It scared me to think that I would need 365 different ideas for a year. Well, in the first year I had a little over four hundred posts. I guess coming up with ideas wasn't as hard as I thought!

And now I'm at the nice round number of 500. I can't say that coming up with different ideas is super easy, but things just seem to come to me. Either I got some new cards, or there's a Cubs news event or trade, or I just noticed something new on a card. I've also settled into some features that I can use if nothing else comes to mind.

So here's to the first 500, with many more to come.

And I'll leave you with some cards from the 500 home run club:

The two players who hit #500 while with the Cubs:

Ernie Banks, who hit all 512 with the Cubs

Sammy Sosa, 545 of his 609 career homers were with the Cubs.

And Willie Mays, who hit 92 against the Cubs, the most of anyone in the 500 Club.
