Here we go. The last time I participated in Gint-A-Cuffs was 6 years ago during the contest’s second year. Back then we got 205 points, which was not enough to win (scoring was different then).
I actually bought two boxes of A&G this year but my other box was about as basic as you can […]
Who’s ready for a reboot of a feature that hasn’t appeared on this blog in over 4 years?
Even after having a hand in the case-breaking world, Autographed cards still fascinate me. Allow me to explain with this series introduction from the early days of the blog. To see the other parts of the series, […]
I usually don’t advertise this type of thing on the blog, but this is my birthday weekend. I don’t advertise it, because I honestly don’t really care about my birthday. That’s not said to garner sympathy, it just stopped being important to me for whatever reason. I even sometimes forget about it.
Other people don’t […]
I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any cards for a while. I need to stop the unnecessary spending, cut back on my discretionary items, and focus on the material possessions I already have.
But, I broke.
I almost had to. When you come across a deal this good, you just have to dive […]
Sure, I know it’s Labor Day, but I’ve never been on time with things. Besides, I didn’t get any cards for Labor Day. Double besides, I labored plenty on that last post. That lengthy sucker took about a week to put together. Triple besides, when else would I have the opportunity to show off these […]
Hopefully most of you are familiar with the concept of Box Buster Bingo (aka BoBuBingo).
It’s a game run by Crackin Wax (who you may remember from my product review back in October). He opens a box of cards and you follow along with a bingo card he created previously. If you get a Bingo, […]
For every Community Break, I try to find one product that’s full of legends or Hall of Famers. It’s a way to fill out the under performing pre-expansion teams that people don’t like to claim and give people a chance to get some cool cards of players they don’t see a whole lot.
Are you ready to take a trip back in time? I hope so, because we’re opening 1999 Upper Deck Retro.
Keep your fingers crossed that our time traveling is more like “Back to the Future” and less like “Blast From the Past.”
How has "cool" not become passe slang by now?
It’s worth mentioning […]
How many of you out there played Little League baseball? How about High School baseball. AYSO Soccer? Any sort of team sport? If so, then you may have received your own trading card. Or at least dreamed of having one.
Most of us have seen those trading cards. They’re flimsy, boring, and the same thing […]
Ginter! Gint-A-Cuffs! Fighting! Ripping! Ripping Packs! Packs of Ginter!
Slow on the draw as usual getting our video and review up for everyone to enjoy and/or summarily ignore. Then to make matters worse, we forgot to shoot our card close-ups! Shoddy craftsmanship. Just you wait. As soon as blogging becomes our full-time […]
