Andy and I just took in a Cubs game together. The Cubs defeated the reigning champion Giants 4-3, but not after some come-to-be-expected drama from the Cubs bullpen.
We entered the 9th inning leading 2-0 thanks to solo homers by David DeJesus (which the announcer pronounced Da-Hey-Juice) and Starlin “Still No Walks” Castro. You may [...]
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. [...]
Several months ago, I participated in a trade bait draft over at The Daily Dimwit’s place. At the time, I wasn’t actively trading, so that I could catch up on my backlog a bit more. Still, I wanted to get in on it, because there were several hits I was hoping to snag for my [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
You can find all the details here for my upcoming Group Break (aka Community Break).
It’s coming up faster than you may think. I’m breaking the boxes wide open in less than a week, so I’d like to get more teams claimed and paid for before then.
I know the prices may seem high, [...]
It’s that time of year again! To reward you all with sticking with the blog during out down spell (and we’re not quite out of the wood yet, but soon!), we’re bringing you a big ol’ patented COMMUNITY BREAK.
The past couple of years, I’ve held an All-Fleer break and an All-Topps break. This time, [...]
Recently, a memorabilia dealer was arrested for mail fraud charges associated with the sales altered sports jerseys. Apparently, this dealer was buying regular consumer-market jerseys and altering them to make them look “game-used.” He then, according to his own confession after arrest, sold those fake “game-used” jerseys to all three major card companies of the [...]
As you guys have probably noticed, posting on the blog has been sparse once again. Let’s not sugarcoat things. It’s kind of pathetic.
Just like all the other times this has happened, we have good reasons (although, it’s terrible that we have to even get to this point to begin with). We’ve both been working [...]
