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. […]

2010 Topps National Chicle video box break

Holy backburner! Jon and I got this box before my vacation in May and didn’t get around to breaking it until several days after my return. And I’ve just now gotten around to cutting the video of the break… hopefully I’ll have the full review up tomorrow. Unemployment is way busier than I expected and […]

I must admit, I was skeptical. I thought that “recently unlocked” list was […]

Million Card Impatience!

As expected, I couldn’t hold up my end of the one-a-day thing. I’m justifying it by the fact that these two gems come from the Million Card Giveaway card brandishing Roger Maris’s angry mug. We didn’t get anyone of his stature, but I’m quite pleased with the result.

Code 1:
