Airbrushed Fridays: 1975 Topps #412

My last name can do things. Who is he? Bill "Froggy" Hands was an 11 year starting pitcher in the majors, with the bulk of his playing days coming with the Chicago Cubs in the late '60s and early '70s. While never an All-Star, he won 20 games with the Cubs in 1969 and had respectable numbers throughout his career. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 13: Civil Disobedience

It's that time of year again. After another big victory with purpose last week, Oregon faces their in-state rival in their final regular season game of the year. It's been a short, strange year! Stanford unfortunately did not hold up their end of the bargain and went on to defeat Cal last week, leaving the Ducks out of the conference title picture. Show More Summary

A Mix of Old and New

Cardinals cards from different eras. While I was being all impressed with myself for being caught up on trade posts last week, Jeff from Wish They Still Came With Bubblegum dropped a power-packed plain white envelope on me. It was chock full of Cardinals both old and new. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 12: No Let Up

The Ducks face another huge test as the clock winds down on the 2015 season. Another week, another thriller. Oregon stopped Stanford on a 2 point conversion that would have sent the game to OT, and suddenly the (still) hottest team in the Pac-12 is starting to dream big. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps #587

Dirty Dan Does Denver. Who is he? Daniel Descalso is a utility infielder who won a World Series with the Cardinals in 2011. While he was essentially a replacement level player, he filled in at a number of positions when the Cardinals were short-handed and even pitched an inning or two. Show More Summary

Night Owl Service

I'm a subscriber. With this post, I am officially caught up with all incoming card-related packages for the first time in what has to be years. It seems like years, anyway. And what better way to commemorate this occasion than with some cards from my most frequent mailbox visitor, Night Owl Cards. Show More Summary

Shiny and New

A dazzling group of cards in my latest trade haul. I had a bit of luck with some Topps Chrome retail purchases this year, and thanks to fine collector's like Tim B., I was able to bring home some choice cards for my own collection in return for that luck. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 11: Spoiler Alert

Oregon faces their most difficult challenge with revenge on their minds. After giving up a school record 742 yards to Arizona State in a you-had-to-see-it-to-believe-it 3OT win the previous week, the Oregon Ducks came home to face Cal and promptly set a new school record on the offensive side of the ball to the tune of 777 yards.

Airbrushed Fridays: 1972 Topps #148

Do you want the cap on... or off? Too bad. Who is he? Dick Billings was a part-time catcher and utility man throughout his eight big league seasons. The bulk of his playing time came from 1971-1973, as he spent most of his final seasons in AAA ball. Show More Summary

Edmonds to The Hall!

Okay, maybe I'm getting a little bit carried away. Baseball Hall of Fame nominations were announced today, and the Jim Edmonds for the Hall Twitter account has been tweeting out fun facts all day. With apologies to a certain blogger whose fave is a first ballot shoo-in, I'm a little more than interested in the plight of Mr. Show More Summary

Other Sports

Cards from all flavors from Canada. It's hard to root for anything in professional American football these days, but I am ostensibly an Eagles fan. I don't mind getting Eagles cards since I pretty much never buy football packs, so it's always nice to get a look at something new, like these cards sent to me from buckstorecards. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 10: Different Directions

After a 3OT thriller, a defensively challenged Ducks team hosts struggling Cal. Before the bye week, Oregon cut it close with the Washington Huskies, but I don't think anyone was prepared for the late night Thursday stunner last week against Arizona State. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Classics: Michael Pineda

When Topps used a 3 year old photo. Let's take a look back at Michael Pineda, who has certainly had a weird career.

Cards from a Jedi

Some red bird cards from a white socks guy. JediJeff has struck again with some super swingin' St. Louis cards for that... well... me. Let's just jump right in and have a look-see.Alex Reyes is being hyped as the next in line of powerful young Cardinals starting pitchers. Show More Summary

Update Impressions

The usual trade bait and snide comments that come with a major Topps release. 2015 Topps Update made its way to the shelves recently while most of us were still watching the playoffs. The $9.99 rack hanger boxes were the only configuration available at my Target as of last Thursday, so I picked up a couple. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1975 Topps #453

Enjoy the World Series tonight! Game 3. Friday night! Who is he? Claude Osteen, sometimes known as "Gomer", was a southpaw starting pitcher who broke into the big leagues with the Reds at 17 in 1957. He tossed a few innings in between writing book reports and trying to get enough credits to finish high school it would seem. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 9: Work To Do

The Ducks look forward towards a strong second half. The streak is still alive. Oregon pushed their winning streak over the rival Washington Huskies to 12, thanks in part to the return to the lineup of a healthy Vernon Adams Jr. I'm sure that if calling "re-do" on a season was possible, Adams would be the first in line.

I'm Just Gonna Leave This Here

A certified autograph of a La Russa favorite. Tony La Russa certainly had his favorites. When he came to manage the Cardinals in 1996, guys like Dennis Eckersley, Willie McGee (briefly with Oakland in 1990) and Mike Gallego mysteriously appeared on the roster. Show More Summary

Nineties! Nineties! Nineties!

The awesome power of the '90s, unleashed! I've had a hard time finding any group breaks to join of late, but I did manage to stumble upon a rather unique one back in September. Thorzul has been known to scour the lots of eBay in search of interesting wares, and this time he hosted a group break consisting mostly of '90s baseball inserts. Show More Summary

Sign This Guy

Fingers crossed. What you see above is my latest Listia acquisition. Although Jason Heyward arrived in St. Louis as far from the perfect ballplayer, he's very young and was a very good fit with the team. He might be the best defensive outfielder in the National League, and after a slow start at the plate he started hitting the ball well. Show More Summary
