We are slowly moving into our new house. We’re taking things slow. On most days, we’ll move 5-6 boxes worth of stuff, shove it in an unused room and then paint or clean various walls, floors, sinks, counters, shelves, etc.
The previous owners were only there for maybe 7 years, max, but holy hell did [...]
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 [...]
Not for a while at least. I have some packages due to Cards on Cards and Cardboard Junkie, and I’ll be sure to send some stuff off to them, but after that I’m going to go on a self-imposed hiatus.
It’s not anything to do with my impending move, either. Well, partly, I guess. Really [...]
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 [...]
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: [...]
Welcome to part 2 of my Jordan cards countdown. If you want/need to catch up, you can find #50-41 here.
As I was writing up this post, I got a package from Cards on Cards that included a few more new Jordans in it. There were also a lot of other really cool b-ball goodies [...]
Now that we’ve let my last article simmer a little bit, I think we’re all ready for something a little lighter and fun.
Maybe I’ll start a discussion of another type.
Sunday, February 17th, 2013 marked Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday. But you knew all of that already, I’m sure. If you’ve turned on any sports [...]
The past couple weeks have seen articles written about the card collecting hobby (specifically baseball card collecting) by people that I would personally consider to be outsiders. The authors even allude or admit to their status as outsiders. These high-profile writers are using their newspapers or aggregate blog services to chime the death knell of [...]
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.
But chances are if [...]
Yes, I too fell victim to the new card smell. In case you haven’t heard, 2013 Topps is out. Last year we opened 5 cases of the stuff. We’re not doing that this time for various reasons, so I ran out to Target to get some blasters.
When I got to Target, they had none [...]
