The Greatest Trade “Throw-In” Ever

And that’s not me speaking in hyperbole to get a couple extra clicks, either. Will you agree? I guess we’ll find out in a few minutes.

Not too long ago, Dutch Card Guy and I worked out a trade for some of my Topps Minis. He was working on the set and I was able […]

Hit Parade

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.

Recent Royals: 2007 UD Masterpieces Billy Butler

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.

While this wasn’t a product I knew about until I came back to the hobby (just like virtually every product, really), […]

2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces Review

With every video box break (see below or click here), there is a review. This is that review. You know, the one I was just talking about.

As far as base sets go, this is one of the smallest I’ve encountered in a while. I guess that’s why my major (and almost only) […]

2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces box break

If it feels like I’ve been AWOL for a long time here, let me assure you that it’s not due to lack of interest or stories to tell. In fact, the past week has been an utter whirlwind leading up to and including a super intense two day music video shoot for our new best […]
