Anyone Interested in a Topps Lineage Group Case Break?

This is sort of last minute, but we’re just putting a feeler out there.

2011 Topps Lineage comes out on 8/3 and we are on the fence about ordering some. Currently we think the best way to handle it, if we are able to get a case, is to hold a group break for the […]

2011 Bowman Platinum Delay

To anyone that may have been looking forward to our live break, it’s unfortunately delayed due to circumstances beyond our control. You know, one of those things.

We’re rescheduling tentatively for Monday. Maybe we’ll do a full on box break video and then do the other 3 on ustream, too. I don’t know.

What do […]

2011 Bowman Platinum Baseball Breaks Coming Later Tonight

Reviewing That Offer From Last Night

Faithful readers and aimless internet wanderers alike saw my post late last night about what I should do with my Carl Yastrzemski die-cut card. I listed several different options, but the most popular one was to go for the 16 card trade that involved an Ernie Banks die-cut, so that’s the one I’m going to […]

How Would You Play This?

The original title of this post was going to be “Well, I guess I can quit my bitching now.”

Most of you blogging types have had at least a modicum of success in unlocking limited edition, super-special, hachi machi die-cuts from the Topps code factory. I had zero luck after series 1. I bought a […]

2011 A&G ABP – Trade Me These Cards

I never really paid much attention to the Allen & Ginter checklist for this year. I knew what mini sets were coming down the line, and I saw a couple things about the non-sport inclusions in the set, but that’s about it.

I didn’t follow it as closely as I normally would have, because we’re […]

Collecting Goals Progress Report

The year sure does move fast, doesn’t it?

It feels like just yesterday that Series 1 came out.

Has it really been more than 2 months since our last contest? Part of that is we stopped getting boxes from Panini for whatever reason, but we can still think of something.

It’s been almost three months […]

Gotta Document Somethin’!

Phew. After this, I’ll have finally caught up with all the trades I’ve completed with Rhubarb Runner over at “e’ rayhahn, rayhah”. I got a bunch of other blogs to hit still, but this is something of a weight off my shoulders. I have a tendency to complete multiple trades with bloggers before I get […]

Recent Royals: 2008 Bowman Chrome Mike Montgomery Refractor

I have very few card collections given my limited resources and space, but I did decide some time ago to begin collecting on-card Royals autographs. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take […]
