A Few Good Group Breaks

2017 was a decent year for me on a personal level. Aside from the last couple months of the year, I did find myself with more free time from work than I had the past few years (although this new position is going to be even better and would be the normal 9-5 schedule a […]

2012 Topps Series 2 Baseball Review and 5 Case Breakdown

We did it for series 1, so you know we had to do it for series 2. 5 whole cases of the stuff. That’s a lot of wrappers, a lot of cards, and a lot of work. Something tells me 2 will be our limit going forward.

Let’s dispense with the pleasantries, shall we? Everyone […]

Acclaimed Depressions

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. It’s been a blast so far trying to track these things down and this is the latest addition to my collection. To view the cards currently in the collection, take […]

Feast Or Famine

Hey look! There are two people who post on this blog! My name’s Andy. We may have met. I’m the one who annoys you with Royals autograph posts and less funny captions than Jon. I’m also the one prone to fits of months without posts, one of which just ended. It’s a shame, really, because […]

Let’s Not All (Gold) Rush At Once

So, you guys already know about the 5 Jumbo cases we opened of 2012 Topps Series 1.

As you can imagine, that left us with a massive box full of wrappers. Normally these would go to set packing material, but this year Topps announced a very limited-time offer to redeem your wrappers for more cards.


2012 Topps Series 1 Baseball Review and 5-Case Recap

Phew! Who knew baseball cards could be so much work! Still, even after opening five Jumbo cases for our business venture, you won’t hear either of us complaining (well, maybe after 16 hours straight of back-breaking sorting). You’ve seen a little taste of what to expect on our video from a few days ago, and […]

2011 Topps Finest Baseball Case Breakdown & For Sale List

Thanks to the select few that joined us for the live UStream Finest Break. I know it was a very last minute announcement on our part, so it’s amazing anyone came into the chat room at all. It was a lot of fun chatting with The Daily Dimwit and the newly titled Life and Baseball […]

2011 Bowman Platinum Baseball Review

Okay, let’s see if I remember how to do this whole “reviewing” thing. The last time I personally reviewed a baseball product was last December. I’ve done other Panini reviews since, but since I don’t think they like us anymore it’s back to the things we buy.

In this particular instance, I’m referring to our […]

The For Sale List – 2011 Bowman Platinum Edition

We’ll get back to normal blogging activity shortly. Forgive us for going a little hog wild on the Bowman Platinum. It’s the first product we as a business have opened to sell, so we’re pretty excited about it.

If you saw the videos, you have an idea of what we have. If you didn’t want […]

2010-2011 Panini Timeless Treasures Basketball Review

Now that the cards have all been packed up and shipped out to the winners of our One Year Anniversary Contest (not to be confused with the other 3-4 contests we’ve held lately), it’s time to take a closer look and actually review this high end product.

Sure, we got the box (er, tin) for […]
