I'm 12!

The blog turns 12 today.  My first post went live on December 30, 2008, and you can read it here.  My main motivation for starting was that I couldn't find any Cubs-specific card blogs.  

I dove in head first and had 401 posts that first year.  I've leveled off to one a day, though I've taken some time off in the summer the past two years.  My post total is 4219, which averages out to 368 per year.  

Thanks for reading, whether you were with me from the start or joined in sometime along the past twelve years.

Below are some of the 46 different players that have worn #12 for the Cubs.
