Hopefully most of you are familiar with the concept of Box Buster Bingo (aka BoBuBingo).
It’s a game run by Crackin Wax (who you may remember from my product review back in October). He opens a box of cards and you follow along with a bingo card he created previously. If you get a Bingo, then [...]
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.
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 [...]
How many of you out there played Little League baseball? How about High School baseball. AYSO Soccer? Any sort of team sport? If so, then you may have received your own trading card. Or at least dreamed of having one.
Most of us have seen those trading cards. They’re flimsy, boring, and the same thing [...]
Ginter! Gint-A-Cuffs! Fighting! Ripping! Ripping Packs! Packs of Ginter!
Slow on the draw as usual getting our video and review up for everyone to enjoy and/or summarily ignore. Then to make matters worse, we forgot to shoot our card close-ups! Shoddy craftsmanship. Just you wait. As soon as blogging becomes our full-time [...]
You’ve waited long enough, but before we start with the scans and everything, I want to let you all know about some technical difficulties we had streaming the break.
Evidently, ustream has recently instituted a cap on live broadcast recording time. So, the video you see below is only about half of the full break. [...]
The big day is fast approaching. Have you claimed your team yet in our Archives case break? If you haven’t, please take a look at the list of teams still available and claim them on the main group break page.
We will be opening the case live on ustream most likely Wednesday or [...]
Okay, that’s a super obvious title but, in my defense, I did think of it before eBay started trying to autocorrect all my “Tier One lot” searches to “Pier One lot” so it’s not like I stole it from anywhere exactly. Point is, I’m three posts into documenting my Tier One Autograph Collection and I’m [...]
Considering the massive amount of new announcements Topps made on twitter today regarding Topps Archives, we figured now would be a good time to remind you that teams are still available in our case group break. The lowest tier is $20, which will get you the entire case worth of your team. It [...]
Former Cub makes good-ish.
A couple of days ago, I finally got around to updating my (sloppy/not well-organized/all over the place/in need of help) want list with all the 2011 Tier One autos I’m looking to grab. As I typed name after name after name, I started to realize what I’ve gotten myself into. [...]
