Throwback Thursday: The Baseball Card Movie

As we approach June, Baseball season is well underway. Which means I’m obsessing over stats for my roto league and Dallas is probably plotting his next trip to CitiField even though the Amazin’s season peaked early with the release of the “Meat the Mets” slice at Two Boots.

Back in 2009 IC’s director Casimir Nozkowski went to his neighborhood baseball card store and created this short doc on the wistful nature of the hobby. We learn in the video that 95% of the store’s customers were adults and maybe that’s part of the reason the business has since shut down. But as with old baseball cards, the video now serves as an artifact capturing an era gone by and also turns people playing a kid’s game into some sort of heroes.
