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

March Radness Update and Factory Set Exclusives

It only took a few hours for all the brackets to bust. Here's a quick contest update. After a very destructive first day and a few other surprises, only a few of you actually lost your champion after the first week of games. I suppose that's not bad. Show More Summary

Disorganized

Vince Coleman is disappointed with me. The stacks of cards are growing all over my living space. I need to do some spring cleaning soon as well as catch up on my blog. This will hopefully be a start, as I'm going to take a look at a few cards I received from Tracy's Box Breaks from... Show More Summary

March Radness Reminder

Just a reminder, guys, but time is running out to make your selections for this year's Radness! You've got until the crack of dawn Thursday morning, essentially, to make all your picks. Unlike the football thing, all the picks need to be made now and locked in. Go forth and prognosticate! http://cardsoncards.blogspot.com/2015/03/march-radness-vii-contest-returns.html

GCRL to COC

Here are some pictures of baseball cards for you to enjoy. As we continue on with the packages I received as a result of December's mini group break, long time trade partner and friend of the blog Garvey Cey Russell Lopes (or GCRL if...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps Stickers #42

It's Friday the 13th. Do you know where your baseball cards are at? Who is he? Josh Johnson is a generically named lefty hurler who was one of the most talented pitchers in the game during his career with the Florida Marlins. The fact...Show More Summary

March Radness VII: The Contest Returns

Fill out a bracket, get free cards... soon you'll be profiting off The Internet! For the seventh straight year, I am holding a NCAA bracket contest. Invites have been sent out via an automated ESPN form to every patient person who participated last season while we determined we can no longer trust Yahoo. Show More Summary

Trading With Steve H

No new Topps Heritage here. Nothing to see here, folks. Move it along... Continuing on with the return packages from my Mini Group Break, here's a few cards that reader Steve H sent me. Steve snagged the Bay Area teams as well as the Astros, and was kind enough to send some nice Cardinals cards my way as well as some 2014 Ginter set needs. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2008 Topps #432

Spring Training continues! Who is he? Jason Kendall was a three-time All-Star catcher who spent 15 years in the big leagues, most of which were spent with teams in the NL Central. Kendall was a bit more offensive minded than most catchers, but you don't get to last as long as he did behind the plate without knowing how to call a game. Show More Summary

Feel The Pain

It was a rough night, with one of my favorite NBA players going down with a serious injury. Let's look at cards to try and cope. This has nothing to do with this post, really, but Wesley Matthews tore his Achilles on national TV tonight during the second half of TNT's famed doubleheader. Show More Summary

Old School Like That

Old stuff. I don't show off vintage cards here nearly enough, so I thought I'd focus this post on the elder statesmen of the cards that Night Owl Cards most recently sent me. I have slowly been working on my want list behind the scenes...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2008 Topps #433

Spring Training begins! Who is he? Carlos Silva had a 9 year major league career, more than most of us, including 7 seasons as a starter. He finished with a.500 W-L record and fairly pedestrian numbers, his best season coming in 2005 with the Twins where he walked just 9 batters all season. Show More Summary

My 2015 Topps Progress

Here's what I've accomplished so far. I've polished off the Cardinals base team set for Series One. This is probably the earliest that I've ever managed this, but I also have the fact that there were only something like 10 Cardinals cards (including multi-player cards) in the whole series. Show More Summary

Panininess

Some Blazers, a Wizard and a Duck walk into a blog... At some point this week the power went out in my place and I have been too busy to figure out why my scanner and PC were no longer on speaking terms. A few cables were unplugged and...Show More Summary

Mercy Mercy

R.I.P. Jerome Kersey. I was stunned to learn of the sudden passing of Jerome Kersey, leaving us with just three of the Bill Schonely-proclaimed "Best Starting Five in the NBA". Kersey was more likely to get a floorburn than knock down...Show More Summary

Someone Put Music in My Sportsball Cards

Collectibles are not always the baseball kind. Jack White's insert card in the 2015 Topps set sparkled a fair amount of pop culture interest. Though it wasn't quite the mopey freeze frame of his visit to Wrigley Field that sparked a million memes, it did become an interesting conversation piece as the new Topps Series One was rolled out. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps Stickers #55

One of the newest Cardinals had a little work done. Who is he? Mark Reynolds is the hard-swinginest, home run-hittinest free swinging baseball man the game has seen in some time. Okay, fine, he just strikes out a ton and hits plenty of home runs. Show More Summary

Spanish Silver Ink

It's officially the NBA All-Star Break! Victor Claver may not be a Blazer by the time the league resumes play as the trading deadline is looming and his playing time has been rather scarce. That didn't prevent me from picking up a snappy certified autograph of the third year Spanish forward thanks to a Listia auction win. Show More Summary

2015 Topps: The Blaster

What is a blaster supposed to be, anyway? Where did that name even come from? Here are my final thoughts on 2015 Topps Series One as I take a look what I got in my blaster last week. I will probably buy a few more packs here and there, but that will probably be it. Show More Summary
