When 2013 Topps came out, I went a little overboard. For a set that I have no intention of completing, I bought way too much. A blaster or a few packs to test the waters is one thing. Buying 3 blasters that basically costs the same as a hobby box is another.
The good news [...]
I like oddball sets. That’s not completely true. Let’s say I have a love-hate relationship with them. The quirkiness of a product like Moments & Milestones or Topps Tek intrigues me greatly and makes me want to open multiple boxes. The player collection mentality urging me to seek out and horde what is essentially 20-200 [...]
“Well, well, well.
Look-y what we have here…Bloggers that tain’t been bloggin’ regular-like. We don’t take kindly to your types around here.”
Or something like that. I know none (or at least most) of you think that about us, but it’s how I like to imagine things in my head so I can keep the [...]
Sorry for the lack of posts, but I’m flying solo and I’ve been spending my free time getting the packages sorted, traded (when appropriate) and packed up. I have all but 6 teams ready to go and will be going out Thursday (today). If you’re in the US, you’ll probably already have the [...]
To those that have asked (and those that haven’t but may be curious),

I apologize for the delay, but please understand that opening, videoing, scanning, sorting, uploading, labeling and packaging 11 boxes of cards is a time consuming process. While fun, it is [...]
Hey folks, we’re going live in 5 for our case of 2011 Finest. Hit up our uStream channel and join the fun!
To anyone that may have been looking forward to our live break, it’s unfortunately delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. You know, one of those things.
We’re rescheduling tentatively for Monday. Maybe we’ll do a full on box break video and then do the other 3 on ustream, too. I don’t know.
What do [...]
The original title of this post was going to be “Well, I guess I can quit my bitching now.”
Most of you blogging types have had at least a modicum of success in unlocking limited edition, super-special, hachi machi die-cuts from the Topps code factory. I had zero luck after series 1. I bought a [...]
In honor of tonight’s All-Star game, I thought what better time to show off some of the All-Star cards I’ve collected for my players. Simple enough concept, right? Let’s just jump right into it.
I was hoping he would be an All-Star again this year, but he had a rough start
I’ve already shown [...]
I know I mentioned that I was going to have the contest results on Tuesday and it’s now Thursday. I know I said I would have the rest of the boxes up by the end of the week unless something happened.
Does acute bronchitis count as something? Cuz’ it feels like it to [...]
