The end of an era: Dear readers (yes, all 11 of you), nearly six years ago, we started this little website with one simple goal: to become famous and rich enough that we could quit our jobs. Now, while we did get quoted in the New York Times, that plan hasn't really panned out. Nonetheless, we've had a lot of fun and laughs bringing you some of the most hideous, dated, airbrushed and ridiculous cards we've encountered.

Today's post is No. 2,098      and the last for us here at the Bust. We know that there are thousands more cards out there worthy of skewering, but life has gotten in the way and it is time for the Bust Cup to return to its trophy case. We want to sincerely thank everybody who contributed cards to our site and helped us along the way. We know there are some of you out there who check this page every day, and while we won't be adding new cards, you can view a random post by clicking the button at the top of our sidebar. Not a great consolation, we know, but we're guessing there are a few you've missed over the years.

So, that's all, friends. We leave you with the man who started it all, Greg Luzinski, The Kodiak Brute, grinding away at his shaft for all eternity. Take care.

  1. D'oh! And I had a card of minor league baseball trainer Dick Cummings to send your way!

    Oh, well! Enjoy retirement!

  2. You're retiring? NOW what am I supposed to do? Visiting your page is part of my morning like a cup of coffee. Sad to see you pack it in, but a job well done over the years. Thanks for the laughs and best of luck. As for me, I'm going to drown my sorrows in cherry flavored vodka. -DL

  8. Sad to see it go but you ended it perfectly. This blog really brought back so many childhood memories from the 80s and 90s. Don't think I've missed too many over the years...

  11. Speaking for the 11 of us, thank you for all of the laughs over the years! Just a thought, but maybe you could pull the old trophy of the shelf every once in a while on special occasions (i.e. Opening Day, World Series Week, NFL Draft Week, etc.) and throw us an occasional bone?? :-)
