Yes, I too fell victim to the new card smell. In case you haven’t heard, 2013 Topps is out. Last year we opened 5 cases of the stuff. We’re not doing that this time for various reasons, so I ran out to Target to get some blasters.
When I got to Target, they had none [...]
Back in the early days of this blog we picked up a cheap box of 2008 Bowman Chrome Baseball. Oh, how young and naive we were back then. (Why yes, we did pick up a case of 2011 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects last year as well.)
Since Bowman is all about the prospect cards, [...]
I think the title speaks for itself, but for those who just love to hear our voices and occasionally see our faces, check out the two videos below! I would review them formally, but I’ve pretty much summed it all up in my Series 1 & Series 2 reviews and with what we say as [...]
This is it. The end of an era. Or at least a group break.
Before we get into it, I’ll let you all know that I’ll be working on packaging and shipping out the cards this week. It can be something of an involved process, but you can be assured I pack things well. I’ll [...]
What’s the next box on our list? Elements, my dear break watchers.
This is why I’m not a professional writer.
This is how mini boxes should be done
It’s worth mentioning each and every time, all of these boxes are courtesy of our good friends and Community Break Sponsor: BASEBALL CARD EXCHANGE
We’re getting near the end of the line. If you’re getting worried about your card count, here’s another choice designed to boost your numbers a little bit. There won’t be any crazy surprises, unless we hit one of those elusive autographs, but it will have plenty of inserts and cards you probably didn’t already have.
For every Community Break, I try to find one product that’s full of legends or Hall of Famers. It’s a way to fill out the under performing pre-expansion teams that people don’t like to claim and give people a chance to get some cool cards of players they don’t see a whole lot.
Victory is mine! Er…I mean ours! Baseball cards: The CCG. It’s probably not the first time it was tried. And it certainly wasn’t the last time. And it may not have been the best time. But it…wait, what was my point?
Ah, who cares. Psuedo-cards!
It’s worth mentioning each and every time, [...]
So far, so good. I’m keeping the one box per day promise going. I think I’ve narrowed my computer shutting itself off issues down to either a RAM or Registry problem. I unfortunately have no time and little know-how to fix it for a while. Hopefully my computer continues to cooperate well enough to keep [...]
Are you ready to take a trip back in time? I hope so, because we’re opening 1999 Upper Deck Retro.
Keep your fingers crossed that our time traveling is more like “Back to the Future” and less like “Blast From the Past.”
How has "cool" not become passe slang by now?
It’s worth mentioning [...]
