A Crazy Idea?

Matt Holliday playing first base doesn't seem far-fetched to me. I didn't plan on making consecutive posts about the Cardinals Lego-headed star, but with Matt Adams being lost for the year due to injury my mind has been wandering about how this problem will be addressed. Show More Summary

Goin' on a Holliday

Matt Holliday ties a Cardinals record by reaching base for the 42nd consecutive game to start the season. Over the holiday weekend, I hit up a local card shop for some supplies and a few things I needed to fulfill some contest prizes. Show More Summary

Another Team Collecting Dilemma

Maybe I am overthinking this. As if I needed another team collecting quirk to deal with, some cards that Infield Fly Rule sent me earlier in the spring dug up some 24 year old feelings. Back in the early days of Stadium Club, Topps would include a little inset photo of the player's rookie card on the back. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps Stickers #92

No, this guy! Who is he? Ryan Madson is a talented reliever who spent a number of years in a sort of backup closer role in Philadelphia. He was on the World Series winning Phillies team of 2008 and would fill in for Brad Lidge whenever he was shelved due to injury. Show More Summary

A Cavalcade of Ex-Eagles

Forgive me for wanting to talk about something other than the Cardinals tonight, 19 strikeouts and 1 hit later. Finally, we've arrived at the stack of Eagles cards in the big box of fun that Jaybarkerfan sent me earlier in the year.Show More Summary

Trading with Remember The Astrodome

Remember? The Houston Astros are off to a stellar start this season, their third in the AL West. I still think it's incredibly stupid that they were moved when the Brewers could have been sent back to where they belong, but the move combined with a full scale rebuild has allowed the franchise to forge a new identity.

Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps Opening Day #179

It's been awhile. Who is he? David Robertson is a modern relief pitcher. He spent his career coming up in the Yankees organization and ascended to the closer role last season. He's always pitched very well, but will likely be relegated to asterisk status as the guy who was the first Yankees closer that wasn't named Mariano in decades. Show More Summary

This Week in Plain White Enveloping

Just kidding, these are from March. I don't receive a lot of small little letter-sized envelopes containing baseball cards unless they're from Listia these days, but occasionally it happens. As I'm still catching up with things sent to me from months ago, I thought I'd show off a few cards that arrived in the smallest of packages. Show More Summary

Catch a Wave of Fire

Despite injuries -- some major -- the Cardinals are off to a historic start. For the first time since sometime in the 19th Century, the Cardinals are 19-6. The Cardinals successes on the field typically have been with teams that either squeaked their way into a Wild Card spot or took a Division crown because someone simply had to. Show More Summary

Everything is Awesome

Not really. For the second time in less than two months, one of my favorite pro athletes suffered a devastating Achilles tendon tear that threatens to derail a once promising season. Adam Wainwright was virtually paralyzed after trying to leave the batter's box on a harmless pop-up, and now the staff ace can only think about next year. Show More Summary

The Wizard on a Wrapper

Wonders never cease. I am not typically a fan of the Gypsy Queen line, but while on vacation last week I saw a familiar face on the cover of the pack wrappers of the latest Topps issue. I don't recall ever seeing Ozzie get the center...Show More Summary

The Spring Cleaning Sort Has Begun

Back to your regularly scheduled programming. I've been off touring the various airports of America, but now I'm back and ready to talk (and sort) cards. If you missed out on my exhaustively promoted and endlessly discussed Spring Cleaning trade-a-thon, please don't fret - there are a whole bunch of teams left. Show More Summary

Spring Cleaning Sign-Ups

Only true Ballers need apply. I am divvying up my extra unwanted cards from sets that I collect into piles of teams. I teased this awhile back, but all you need to do is sign up for a team and find a minimum of one card from one of my many want lists (player collections, team collections, or sets) to get a pile of cards from your favorite team.

March Radness is Over!

Here are the results... All of the games have been played and Duke has walked away with the coveted trophy and the accolades and all that. That means that our contest is done for the year. That means there are winners to announce.Four of us picked Duke to go all the way, including the top 3 in our little contest here. Show More Summary

A Loose Definition of Junk

Robble robble. A couple of months back, the legendarily generous Jaybarkerfan's Junk was getting rid of... wait for it... some junk. In particular, the Hamburglar by day (and collector by night?) was looking for people to claim his extra NBA and NFL cards. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps Update #US111

Getting ready to do it again, 162 times. Who is he? Scott Hairston comes from a long line of Major League Baseball players. Like his brother Jerry Jr., Scott has played many positions over the course of his 11 year big league career....Show More Summary

Four Terrific Cards

From Scott Crawford on Cards! This is the type of trade I need to find more of. I sent some cards over to Scott Crawford on Cards and received four lookers in return. No scrubs here, folks. (Not that I have anything against scrubs, exactly. Show More Summary

2x3 Cardinals and a Radness Update

Just a few games remain to be played in the big contest. With just the Final Four looming, it's a tight race for the top, between P00PSH00TER, brianp1913, and Homer_J_Fong23. With so many people picking Kentucky to win it all, it looks like it would be a lock for brianp1913 if Duke pulls it off. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #506

He was more of an idea than an actual physical presence on the field. Who is he? Rafael Furcal is a 3-time All-Star shortstop who could hit and field. He was absolutely one of the league's best at his position in his time with Atlanta, the team that signed him out of the Dominican Republic and raised him. Show More Summary

Spring Cleaning is Coming

I need to get rid of cards. Plus, a trade post. Why not? I'm a team collector who has made the unfortunate dabble into collecting sets on occasion. Because of this, I have a lot of doubles and triples that I have absolutely no use for. Show More Summary
