Wax Heaven has left the building

Due to personal issues, Mario of Wax Heaven is retiring. Will this be a Michael Jordan-type retirement? Time will tell. But for the time being, Wax Heaven is no more.

Bloggers have been lamenting the silencing of a giant in the baseball card blogging world, and someone even wrote a poem/song parody about this sad day. Whether you agreed with Mario’s opinions or not (and I often did not, but I don’t like to rock the boat so I just kept my mouth shut), the fact is he was a very good writer and did a great job of promoting the hobby that we love.

I thought I would pay tribute to Wax Heaven by making a “fun card” of Mario’s favorite player, Jose Canseco in the style of 2009 Topps. Twice Mario linked to my “fun cards”, so it is only fitting to make a Canseco for him.

Mario, I wish you well and hope that you are able to plug back in at some point in the future.
