Unparalleled Trade Partner, Multi-Parallel Trade

I know people are probably anxious to see posts recapping my adventure at the 2015 National Sports Collectors Convention, but that’s going to wait a bit longer as I organize more stuff. For now, here’s a package that basically feels like a mini-National.

Brian from Play at the Plate has always been a great supporter […]

For the Greater Wood – Part 3

How long has it been since we last left my gigantic trade with reader Fred. If you missed the first part, and I imagine at this point most of you did, check out that post here. When you’re done with that, the second part can be seen here.

The main theme of the product is that there are different “Class”es of cards. Depending on the year of release, these […]

All-Topps Community Break Sign-Up Is Now Open!!

I’ve teased it long enough. It’s finally time.
