A simple phrase that can mean so many things. In April, when I started this draft, I initially intended it to talk about the progress I was making moving into our new house.
I could write about the flurry of moves the Cubs have made recently. Tonight saw Matt Garza go, but prior to that, [...]
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 [...]
My “In Defense Of” post garnered quite a bit of attention for the site. Chris Olds and Susan Lulgjuraj from Beckett, VOTC – c0-host of Cardboard Connection Radio, a couple card blogs and various twitterers all picked up on the article and helped promote and discuss the issue.
When all was said and done we [...]
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 [...]
The Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Rose Parade have both passed us by for another year. As a kid, I used to enjoy watching a good parade. I liked all the different character balloons, and the moving floats always fascinated me. It’s pretty impressive what some people can do with a float-load of flower petals. [...]
Why am I so excited about college basketball? A few reasons.
1) My Chicago Bulls aren’t likely to be too fun to watch until Derrick Rose returns from injury.
2) I think the college game is simultaneously infinitely more fun and infinitely more frustrating to watch due to the raw passion and hustle and lack [...]
We’re getting near the end of the line. If you’re getting worried about your card count, here’s another choice designed to boost your numbers a little bit. There won’t be any crazy surprises, unless we hit one of those elusive autographs, but it will have plenty of inserts and cards you probably didn’t already have.
You can find all the details here for my upcoming Group Break (aka Community Break).
It’s coming up faster than you may think. I’m breaking the boxes wide open in less than a week, so I’d like to get more teams claimed and paid for before then.
I know the prices may seem high, [...]
It’s that time of year again! To reward you all with sticking with the blog during out down spell (and we’re not quite out of the wood yet, but soon!), we’re bringing you a big ol’ patented COMMUNITY BREAK.
The past couple of years, I’ve held an All-Fleer break and an All-Topps break. This time, [...]
Actually, I had Kobe Money.
For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, I sold the second greatest card I’ve ever found in a pack of cards (the first has not been revealed, and would not go for as much money) about a year ago. It was a 1997/98 Kobe Bryant Skybox [...]
