A Long Ways From Cooperstown

Another super trade from three time zones over. Portland, Oregon is a long ways from anywhere. With the crippling budget crisis that seems to have been the standard operating practice for the USPS going on years now, it's fairly wondrous that it only takes a few days for these baseball cards to go from coast to coast.

A greater than great set of cards from @Lost_Collector I like to say that every trade I've made through the blog over the years has been great, but certainly there are occasions where something I get back is a little more... great. This is probably one of those teams. Show More Summary

Summer Cleaning 2016

Time for trades! Let's make a deal? Awhile ago, I discovered this filthy cardboard box that is built for containing microphone(s). What sort of horrors laid within? AHHH! AHHHHH! Cardboard horrors! So while I clear this thing out, IShow More Summary

New School, Guys

New cards, fuzzy memories. Last month, Topps unleashed another round of their flagship set (Series Two) with another round of inserts. I've finally lined up a deal to get all the Cardinals base cards from the set I'm trying to ignore, but of course that leaves a lot of inserts to gather up. Show More Summary

Old School, Y'All

Throwback Thursday? Sure, why not? Awhile back, I reached out to Jon from A Penny Sleeve For Your Thoughts to ask about some extra early '80s Topps album stickers he had acquired in the comments section on a post he did for APTBNL. I am super excited about these two stacks of stickers that I get to put, unstuck, in my Cardinals binders soon. Show More Summary

Rooty Tooty Fresh & Looty

Ketel, anyone? June's @thelootlocker box arrived recently, once again bearing fruit. I had skipped a month of the hobby packs-a-month club because I ran out of time to buy in for the previous month. I have considered getting an automatic...Show More Summary

This Blog Post is Not About Pokemon Go

@TwitchWasHere delivers the good goods. It's crazy to have a week that will be almost entirely free of baseball, which might actually help me get caught up in some posts that I wanted to write. I'm not entirely sure if he's shuttered his latest blog, but Twitch is active on Twitter and is always up for a trade. Show More Summary


Just one All-Star nod for the Cardinals means I'm taking the year off from the farcical game. While it certainly seems like a down year for the Cardinals, there were a number of All-Star candidates on a team that has mostly been one of the top offenses in the league this year. Show More Summary

Repack Hits?

Who knew? As I recently teased on Twitter, I bought a few of the drug store variety repack boxes over at Walgreen's on Monday. I was only going to grab one as my reward for running errands that actually involved said drug store, but they happened to be on sale ($3.99!) for some weird reason, so I bought all three that were on the shelf.

This Again

Most Wanted card number 26. There have been a number of Ozzie Smith rookie card facsimiles produced by Topps during this millennium (or Willennium? are we still calling it that?), but nothing beats the real thing. Topps added another...Show More Summary

Anatomy of a Baseball Card: So Taguchi 2003 Topps Kanebo

Topps goes to Japan, albeit briefly. I am headed up to Seattle this weekend to catch the Cardinals in person for the first time in a very long time. In every Cardinals game I've seen live, my favorite player (Jim Edmonds at the time) was always missing due to various maladies. Show More Summary

2014 Calling

Back to the past with a prize from 2014. For several years running, the preeminent Cleveland Indians blogger (and all-around goofball) David from Tribecards has run a season long pack breaking frenzy that results in his giving away all of the cards at the end. Show More Summary

Nighttime Night Owl Post

One of these guys isn't a cheating cheaterpants who cheats. For the second year in a row, there's a Lou Brock/Dee Gordon pairing on a Topps Heritage insert, which has thrown me for a bit of a loop as I try to get my checklists in order. Show More Summary

A Travesty on a Baseball Card

This Listia win makes me cringe. The Topps Heritage Minors line is a step removed from what I currently enjoy as Topps Heritage, which itself is at least a couple of steps removed from an honest to goodness vintage cardboard baseball card set. Show More Summary


Some notes. I have a few projects going on at home right now, the largest of which is to add my entire Cardinals collection to Zistle so I can finally get a handle on my want lists. The want lists I have up on this blog are 99% accurate,...Show More Summary

A Fresh Value Pack of Archives

The Archiviest! Topps Archives seems like an unnecessary product because it doesn't really attempt to do anything different. If they could get the vintage card stock right, or take a sharper eye to the designs that they replicate, or just do something different to cement its status as a necessary product, I wouldn't be so dismissive of it.

Anatomy of a Baseball Card: Tony Fernandez 1984 Donruss

One of the first Rated Rookies. Early on in my card collecting days, my younger brother decided to collect Tony Fernandez cards. These days, you really couldn't go wrong collecting Fernandez cards. Tony was an '80s star who made 5 All-Star teams and won a World Series with the Blue Jays in 1993. Show More Summary

Not Quite Junk

No junk here. It's pretty amusing that Jaybarkerfan's Junk is named the way it is, because I'm pretty sure that no one who has ever received a package from him has ever found anything resembling junk. The SuperTrader founder who has,...Show More Summary

Anatomy of a Baseball Card: Trevor Story 2013 Topps Heritage Minors

Nuts to that. Minor league cards are supposed to be fun, which is why I wish I bought them more often. Topps's recent reentry into the minor league game has been nice, but the cards (Pro Debut and Heritage Minors) are a hobby-only thing. Show More Summary

Brought to you by the Letter L

Still viable. I'm still active on Listia after all these years, after nearly ditching the site this past winter over an auction dispute where their customer service was being completely unreasonable. For the most part, the issues that...Show More Summary
