Gabe Kapler, Ball Boys and Booker T

It's been a fast-paced couple of weeks with the National Sports Collectors Convention, the NFL Hall of Fame and Chicago Comic-Con. Luckily I was no where near any of those places. I was catching some rays on the beaches of Kauai.

But as they say, the show must go on.

In my absence, the crew stepped up and took over the studio as the invited eGraphs spokesperson, and former MLBer Gabe Kapler to make a Cardboard Connection with the Cardboard Nation!

On the following show they welcomed one member of the ABC TV Show Ball Boys to do the same. The guys spoke with Shaggy about the show and the sports and memorabilia biz.

The frenzy continued as soon as I got back to the mainland as the crew got a little sweeter with the addition of Sweet Lou Brown, another member of the Ball Boys squad. Lou grabbed a hold of the Cardboard Connection Radio listeners and never let go, we went into OT and a lil' After Dark. We also got to talk a little vintage with The Bubble Gum Card Wars author Dean Hanley.

Tonight is another really big show (insert poor Ed Sullivan imitation here). Discussing his life before he ever entered the squared-circle is the current Smackdown GM and pro-wrestling icon -- Booker T. Booker's new career as an author is just getting started with his book From Prison to Promise and he'll be bringing it to the Cardboard Nation tonight! Can you dig that suckas?

Listen live at 11pm EST:

  1. Sweet Lou is a cool guy. I've talked with him on Twitter a few times and he even re-tweeted a nice comment I made about the show. That's as close I've gotten to any celeb-type person lately lol
