How many of you have been able to watch any of the World Baseball Classic? I’ve caught a few innings here and there. Any baseball is good baseball. I could take or leave spring training in terms of “seeing young talent prove themselves.” The only important aspect that applies to the regular season is “Injured: [...]
My “In Defense Of” post garnered quite a bit of attention for the site. Chris Olds and Susan Lulgjuraj from Beckett, VOTC – c0-host of Cardboard Connection Radio, a couple card blogs and various twitterers all picked up on the article and helped promote and discuss the issue.
When all was said and done we [...]
The Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rose Parade have both passed us by for another year. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching a good parade. I liked all the different character balloons, and the moving floats always fascinated me. It’s pretty impressive what some people can do with a float-load of flower petals. [...]
How about them holidays, huh? I hope everyone had a good and relaxing season.

Our blog was down for who knows how long for who knows why after I posted the first of these. Here’s hoping the same fate doesn’t befall round two.
If you missed the first part, and don’t feel like going back, just know that I’m very grateful for the thoughtfulness and generosity of bloggers and [...]
I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take [...]
Actually, I had Kobe Money.
For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, I sold the second greatest card I’ve ever found in a pack of cards (the first has not been revealed, and would not go for as much money) about a year ago. It was a 1997/98 Kobe Bryant Skybox [...]
