You know you want it: Topps selling large prints of old baseball cards, suitable for framing

This is relevant to my interests: Topps has taken over 1,000 of its cards as far back as 1980 and is offering them up as art prints for your home. Here’s the promotional video:

These are pretty sweet. Could be sweeter if they went back into the 1950s-70s, as those card designs are fantastic. But for now this is nice.

I mean think about it: how much of a baller move would it be to pay $65 for a framed pic of a 1980 Milt Wilcox and put it in your dining room. It’d probably be worth the divorce.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
