Cards from Across the Border: Cardinals Edition

A trade so nice I split it thrice. Occasionally I'll get a package of cards in the mail so generous that I can't conceivably do it justice with my typical five-images-and-a-few-comments approach. A package arrived from Sportscards From...Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 13: The Home Stretch

After another week off to heal some injuries, Oregon hits the field for their final home game of the season. Emerging star tight end Pharaoh Brown suffered a devastating knee injury on the field at the end of the Utah game, but Oregon...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #428

I have yet to find a single Photoshopped card from 2014 Topps Update, so here's something from Series 2. Who is he? Once a Cardinals organizational soldier, Skip Schumaker has become something of a journeyman in his post-Rally Squirrel days. Show More Summary

The Finest a Junkie Can Offer

When the chips are down, the Internet gives me Chipz. Awhile back, I made a plea for some Topps Chipz. I really like the things, but I was bummed that I didn't have any Cardinals. I can now claim to be the proud owner of two Cardinals...Show More Summary

A Fantastic Rack Pack

I didn't even have to use my A.K. I was having a pretty lousy Monday (yesterday) when I stopped at the Rite Aid for some cans of soup and some beverages. Rite Aid is a pretty sad place to look for cards, but there happened to be a couple of 2014 Topps Series 2 rack packs on one of the endcaps, calling my name. Show More Summary

Offseason Cards from Off Hiatus

A big trade today doesn't stop the trade posts. Another big batch of cards I needed came through the door recently, courtesy of Off Hiatus Baseball Cards. Tony may be a fan of a team that I really wish would go back to the American League where they belong, but he runs a great blog and is a great trader to boot. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2010 Topps #344

Altered photos on baseball cards for the masses. Who is he? Brett Myers was a serviceable member of the Philadelphia Phillies rotation for the better part of last decade (whatever we are calling that). He was a member of the World Series winning 2008 team, though he struggled for much of the season and lost his only World Series start. Show More Summary

Fantastic Trade

Just like the cold weather, the trade packages keep rolling on in. I don't trade with Cardinals fans often enough, which is a shame because I have more extra Cardinals cards in my possession than the entire rest of the National League combined, or at least it's feels that way. Show More Summary

2x3 Hits

All hits, all the time. I just got home from the Blazers game (big comeback win against the Charlotte Horn-cats) a little while ago, so this is going to be a brief one. I got hit 'n run by JediJeff again and thought I'd show off some of the goodies of a recent envelope I received. Show More Summary

One "Weird" Trick to Get Baseball Cards in the Mail

Did you know that you can trade cards with people through the magic of the Internet? It's crazy, but true! If you just spend a few minutes a day, you can communicate with people all across the world who might be interested in your unwanted baseball cards. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 11: Pivotal Road Fight

Oregon faces their biggest road test of the season against a stubborn Utah team. Having unceremoniously dispatched Stanford last week without much trouble, Oregon finds themselves facing perhaps their toughest test of the season. The Ducks head to Utah for a late game against a team leading the entire nation in sacks. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #27T

The Yankees cap doesn't always fit. This time, it did. Who is he? Ed Figueroa was a Puerto Rico-born pitcher who became the first from the territory to win 20 games in a season. He came up with the Angels, but his best years would lie ahead of him. Show More Summary

Mailbox Action

Get ready for some trade posts to cozy up those chilly autumn evenings. The mailbox at Cards on Cards Central has been rather full again, and not just with political campaign ads. I've started throwing cards around the country again and others have thrown things back at me. Show More Summary

Purple Shiny Winners

Not pictured: Mickey Mouse ears Congrats are due to Jim of The Phillies Room for being chosen as the winner of Friday's quick contest. The prize is 3 of the purple refractors that I pulled from a recently purchased $10 blaster of 2014 Topps Heritage. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 10: Hell to Pay

Let's just burn this thing down to the ground. Rivalries are one thing, steeped in history with lots of older men exchanging stories about past border clashes. Families are divided over their allegiances to one team or another. Beneath all the crosstalk, however, there's usually a measure of respect that lies below the surface. Show More Summary

Not Airbrushed Friday: Trick or Treat!

It's my birthday, so I'm going to put you to work for me. Maybe you'll win? Here's the deal: it's my birthday and I don't feel like I should be put to work on my birthday. That means no inspired (ha!) Airbrushed Fridays post from me....Show More Summary

Beam Me Up

Hey, it's my birthday! (Almost.) Impromptu contest forthcoming.

Rip City Is Back

Oh, and there's that whole World Series Game 7 thing, too. I have tickets to the Blazers season opener tomorrow night (or basically tonight by the time you are reading this) and I couldn't be more excited. I usually go to about a dozen games a year, give or take a few, but I don't talk Blazers a lot on this blog. Show More Summary

Thoughts on Update

Topps Series 3 is out, and here are some cards I purchased! I spent more money on cards last Saturday than I had the entire summer combined, and that included my first pack purchases from 2014 Topps Update. I bought 5 loose (Target)Show More Summary


Trying to make sense of where the cruelties of life intersect with a game played with a stick and a ball. I wasn't able to find the words to say about the awful car wreck that took the life of Cardinals prospect Oscar Taveras and his girlfriend yesterday, and I'm not sure that I've got them now.
