Let’s face it: we never grew up.
I mean, this is a site about baseball cards, and you’re reading it. You either still collect baseball cards or wish you still collected baseball cards.
And we’re not alone, either. Each week, hundreds of sports cards blogs light up the Internet with posts and lists and pictures — there is never a lack of material for this weekly roundup.
This week, not-grown-up kids everywhere choose sides and celebrate the release of Batman v. Superman.
So what else could our theme be?
Here are the best hobby posts from the last seven days, superheroes included.
