Goodbye, Jody. It’s Been Fun.

We’ve had some good times and we’ve had regular times, but it’s time the times come to an end. Time.

Our sweet, dear Jody Davis has finally found a worthy suitor.

Ever since we unlocked the power of the hometown catcher on the Topps Million Card site thingy, we’ve seen all kinds of offers for [...]

Does this change your opinion?

Well, in terms of viewer voting for whom I should collect (yes, my title was grammatically incorrect), it’s a landslide. The Riot leads with, I believe, everyone’s vote.

I think I have my mind basically made up and I’ll announce the lucky winner(s?) on my next post, but I just wanted to share this with [...]

Who Should I Collect?

I’ve always been a player collector. I’ve already briefly mentioned how I collected Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry as a young Mets fan. I’ll get into that collection in more detail in a future post (I need to rescue it from my hometown).

In my basketball days I was primarily a Michael Jordan collector (will [...]

2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces Review

With every video box break (see below or click here), there is a review. This is that review. You know, the one I was just talking about.

Main Set

As far as base sets go, this is one of the smallest I’ve encountered in a while. I guess that’s why my major (and almost only) [...]

2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces box break

If it feels like I’ve been AWOL for a long time here, let me assure you that it’s not due to lack of interest or stories to tell. In fact, the past week has been an utter whirlwind leading up to and including a super intense two day music video shoot for our new best [...]

The Beginning – My First Pack

The second in a series.

Last time, we left our hero after he had accidentally picked a favorite team. He had not yet opened a pack of cards, and to be honest, had no idea that cards existed until one fateful night.

The year was 1986. My dad was a High School teacher and took [...]

Dawson Hunt 2010: We Have a Winner!

Holy Hawk, cardfolk! Our very first contest has come to a close and was a rousing success! We had 19 entries, most of which were from first-time commenters (hence the sometimes annoying comment approval delay- sorry about that, Craig!). We can’t thank you all enough for the support of our first contest and can’t wait [...]

Dawson Hunt is ending soon!

The contest ends at 11:59 EST. Just a few hours left to get your guesses in!! Click here to play!

And yes, this is a handmade card from when I was 12 years old or so, but that’s a story for a different post. Don’t ask me why there’s no pitcher. Probably too much [...]

1981 Fleer Roundup

I’ve finally taken the time to go through the old Fleer lots and take down some numbers. I got very close to the 1981 Fleer set, which is awesome because (as I’ve mentioned before) that’s my birth year and I’ve always wanted to put together a set of ’81s from some manufacturer or another. So [...]

Sshhh, Don’t Look Now!

Sshhh! Don’t look now, but Panini is right behind you, checking you out. Nononono, don’t look, don’t look! No, seriously I think Panini’s looking to put some hardcore moves on you.

What’s it doing? Well, right now it’s kind of just sitting in the corner watching a couple others fight, but there’s something about it. [...]
