Wow, I've been very lax with my football card blogs for the past few
weeks months years. (Cardinals - April 2014; Bills - July 2016; It seems like I should have posted something in 2018.)
Well, this Bengals post has been sitting in draft mode since January 2018. As I recall, I had it mostly completed when the Blogger gremlins attacked. In the middle of me typing something, the cursor highlighted all the text, therefore replacing everything with whatever character I last typed. Immediately, autosave kicked in, wiping out everything I did. AARGH! I hate when that happens.
That happened a few times on my baseball blogs (Tommie Agee, Joe Rudi, maybe others), so since November 2012 I have been composing my baseball posts in Word documents, then pasting them into Blogger. (I haven't learned that lesson yet for my football blogs.)
So my new football blog format (as detailed here) is to scan the cards in groups of 8 or 9, to minimize the number of scans per post (which is what is mostly holding me back).
