A Return. A Rebirth.

Well, I’m back from vacation! And, in what will likely go down as the most hilarious day of my life, I woke up at 5AM and showed up at work the day of my flight only to be laid off about 2 hours in. I packed up my stuff and head home to help the […]

Stanley Cup, here we come!

Chief Kermy

I’m not a hockey collector, but I am swiftly becoming a hockey fan. I started watching during last year’s playoffs. I had no idea what was going on, and I still don’t fully understand the rules and can’t follow who’s doing what when. All I know is that the game is pretty […]

Custom Cards and a Contest

The contest isn’t mine, it’s by “Hey, That’s Mine!” Possibly the greatest custom card creator I’ve seen. You still have a little bit of time left to enter. Do so here.

I promise the prize you could win will be a lot better than anything I’ve created in my past. Want some proof?

This […]

Starting My Maddux Collection

Those of you that follow our blog know that I recently announced that I am collecting a few players. Ryan Theriot, Ryan Dempster (in a Cubs uniform only to start), and Greg Maddux get the honor of being placed in binders and sought after in card shops and show floors.

Theriot and Dempster shouldn’t be […]

NPN Success

Today, upon my return from work, I was greeted with an envelope from the fine people at Panini.

My first instinct was that they had sent me a reward for finding that ultra rare, not supposed to be released Patrick Mills insert card. But of course that was a reward in and of itself, so […]

If you’re the type that likes watching out of sync box break videos, check it out here. For those of you who like written words as opposed to spoken, see below.

Main Set

It’s tough to review the main set, because it’s not really clear what the main set is sometimes with this product. It […]

Tracking Our ’08 Bowman Prospects

Hey, everybody. Sorry about the lack of posts lately. I’ve been busy working on behind the scenes stuff with my other website, www.itsnotabook.com – you’re favorite website for funny videos. Remember, if it’s worth watching, itsnotabook.com. Andy’s going to be out and about and probably away from the computer until later this month as well. […]

It’s Official – I’m Collecting Players!

A few posts ago, I asked for your feedback and guidance as to whom I should collect. At heart, I’ve always been a player collector. I’m trying my hands now at being a set collector, but SPs sure ain’t making that transition the smoothest it could be. I had been out of the card game […]

2008 Bowman Chrome baseball video box break

Like I said: we’ve been busy. Not with bustin’ wax (or rhymes, in Jon’s case) unfortunately, but that’s all about to change… We’ve got boxes of Chicle baseball on their way as we speak. And we promise to not spend 80% of the break laughing at the cards this time. Plus we’ve got Topps Series […]
