Series Two Trade Bait

When Big Papi was Medium-Sized Papi. I guess I don't have a lot to say about Series Two, so I thought I'd just throw up some scans of some of the more interesting cards that I don't need. I have a Cardinals want list, a Topps Heritage...Show More Summary

First Half Champions

Banking wins is good, but this team needs to be the best in October. The good times and vibes abound with the Cardinals right now as the team has jumped out to a 50-24 start and a sizable division lead over two very talented teams in the Cubs and the Pirates. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps #364

The ol' underhand toss. Who is he? Carlos Pena was a slugger and a one-time All-Star who spent most of his career with the Tigers and the Rays. He was never known for his defense or for hitting for high average, but his power kept him around the game for more than a decade. Show More Summary

Spring May Be Over, But the Cleaning is Still Going On

White Sox, Padres and Reds (Oh my!) Plus some other teams that no one really collects, I guess? I've been working on a couple of projects and going through my entire collection to pull cards for a couple of people who are very deserved over the past couple of weeks. Show More Summary

Offseason Teams

How much do you care about your other teams in the offseason? For me, it's not always a lot. It's hard for me to get too fired about sports that aren't actually actively scheduling contests among their teams. I'm not sure if I've always...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps Opening Day #75

Sometimes you just gotta let it go. Who is he? Jimmy Rollins is in his 16th major league season as a shortstop, a mainstay of the Phillies teams throughout the ought years and beyond. The Phillies are a team that was very successfulShow More Summary

That Time I Got Derek Jeter's Autograph

Certified. That's right. Something funny happened after I headed home from a card show last winter. I had plunked down a relatively small amount of cash on a box of 1997 Bowman cards with a rather hilarious $125 guarantee (guarantee void in Tennessee) and one of the more hideous designs lurking within. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1986 Topps Traded #122T

Completing the trilogy. Who is he? Claudell Washington was a two-time All-Star with an impressive 9 years between appearances in the midsummer classic. The speedy outfielder logged time in 7 big league uniforms over the course of his 17 year career. Show More Summary

Some Cards Show Finds Found for Me

"Are you sure card collecting is your thing?" he asks. I just have a quick post for you tonight as I'm in the middle of another sorting project as well as pulling cards from all of the darkest corners of my home for a Mets collector and an Astros collector. Show More Summary

E-Mail Order Cards

A few recent online purchases. I feel like I don't do this often enough here, so I thought I'd show off some cards I bought recently to add to my collection. I usually find another reason to buy cards from COMC and then figure I'll save on shipping by throwing in a few (or a lot more than a few) purchases for myself. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps #639

What can you say about this guy? Who is he? What to say about Josh Hamilton? He was the overall number one draft pick in the 1999 MLB Draft, but it would take until 2007 before the can't miss prospect would play in the majors. Hamilton went through years of problems with drugs and an organizational change before he made his debut with the Reds. Show More Summary

I Traded with Nachos Grande

And all I got was this lousy t-shirt. (Not pictured: the t-shirt) I'm almost caught up with March's packages, which means I shouldn't be typing the words "caught up" at all. From longtime blogger Nachos Grande came a trading first for me: I got something functional and wearable from him in the form of a (not actually lousy) Cardinals t-shirt. Show More Summary


Still just a drop in the bucket. Friday was payday, so I went out over the weekend to run some errands and came home with some cards. You know how this goes. One of the things I punked down some cash for was a 20 packs-for-$20 repack box, which is probably the best way to do repacks. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2007 Topps #21

Hi. I play for NEWYORK. Who is he? Chris Britton was a relief pitcher for a spell. His Wikipedia entry seems neglected and a little sad, mentioning his large weight relative to other players in the league in the present tense even though he hasn't pitched a game in 7 years. Show More Summary

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.
