We’re just about a week away from baseball’s opening day.
It’s a wonderful time of the year. Spring is starting to rear it’s pretty little head. New baseball cards start coming out faster than a Vin Diesel driven car. Hope and optimism is in every fan’s head.
The future is now.
But sometimes before you [...]
Before we get into the post, I want to make an announcement/request.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND PACKAGES TO THE ADDRESS YOU HAVE FOR ME UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
If you have something we’ve talked about, leave a comment or email me before sending it but, barring some sabotage, I will be closing on a house this [...]
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 [...]
All of us have different ways to organize our respective collections.
You may sort by player, by team, by year, by set, by number, by picture quality, by uniform number, or any combination of those. You may put your cards in shoeboxes, card boxes, binders, toploaders, safes, or who knows what.

How about them holidays, huh? I hope everyone had a good and relaxing season.

I opened two boxes of the Topps Minis (plenty still available for trade), and even though I got about 10 of the #/61 parallels, none of them were players [...]
Why am I so excited about college basketball? A few reasons.
1) My Chicago Bulls aren’t likely to be too fun to watch until Derrick Rose returns from injury.
2) I think the college game is simultaneously infinitely more fun and infinitely more frustrating to watch due to the raw passion and hustle and lack [...]
Reflections – fitting name for the set
The card you see above is the last Kerry Wood card I acquired while he was still an active player, and quite an appropriate one at that.
You see, it’s tough to tell the story of Kerry Wood’s career without touching on the expectations and the subsequent [...]
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 [...]
There have been a lot of trade posts on here recently. Don’t worry, they’re going to slow down soon. I’m juuust about caught up with my trade posts. Then the no-trading ban will be lifted and all will be right with the world again.
How many of you remember my Topps Community Break from a [...]
