Group Break Shipping Update

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the lack of posts, but I’m flying solo and I’ve been spending my free time getting the packages sorted, traded (when appropriate) and packed up. I have all but 6 teams ready to go and will be going out Thursday (today). If you’re in the US, you’ll probably already have the […]

What’s In A Case of 2012 Topps Archives Baseball? Group Break Recap & Review

You’ve waited long enough, but before we start with the scans and everything, I want to let you all know about some technical difficulties we had streaming the break.

Evidently, ustream has recently instituted a cap on live broadcast recording time. So, the video you see below is only about half of the full break. […]

2012 Topps Archives Box Topper Autograph Randomization

Hey everybody,

I’ll be back soon with a full recap with scans for the group break. If you haven’t told me your preference for extra team sets, I’ll be emailing you shortly about that as well.

In the meantime, if you follow us on twitter or were able to watch the live ustreaming of the […]

Acclaimed Depressions

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.

End Of An Era: Kerry Wood Retires – A Cardboard Retrospective

Reflections – fitting name for the set

You see, it’s tough to tell the story of Kerry Wood’s career without touching on the expectations and the subsequent […]

Blue tape! These were sent by a pro!

Tier One Imports

Okay, that’s a super obvious title but, in my defense, I did think of it before eBay started trying to autocorrect all my “Tier One lot” searches to “Pier One lot” so it’s not like I stole it from anywhere exactly. Point is, I’m three posts into documenting my Tier One Autograph Collection and I’m […]

If I Were To Collect: Milwaukee Brewers Edition

(The second in a series: I’m picking one player that I associate with a team (whether they spent the majority of their career there or not) that I would strongly consider adding to my official want lists. They may not always be superstars, or the most popular, and honestly they may not always be my […]

The Only Time I Root For The White Sox

Is when I’m participating in a group break and I’ve claimed them.

Okay, I guess I also cheered along in 2005. I may be anti-South Side, but if anyone’s going to win the World Series, I was happy that it could have been a team in Chicago. Even if it does mean people on my […]
