Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #58T

I've almost exhausted all of the '70s airbrushed cards I own. I should do something about this. Who is he? Ron Reed was a pitcher with a short name and a long career. Debuting with Atlanta in 1966, Reed earned All-Star honors in 1968 and won his first and only World Series title in 1980. Show More Summary

Stadium Club is Okay, I Guess

An extremely myopic view of the latest Topps revival. After reading a lot of rather negative things on the Twitter about this year's Topps Stadium Club release, I was expecting an envelope full of turds and razorblades when I won a couple of Listia auctions featuring these new cards.

Good Luck Ducks, Week 8: A Decade of Dominance

After a rebound win, Oregon faces their bitter rivals to the north. Admittedly, I was pretty down on the Ducks last week going into the UCLA game. Jake Fisher returned to the offensive line and made a huge difference, as Marcus Mariota was no longer sacked every other play and the Ducks grabbed a comfortable lead on unfriendly turf. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2007 Topps Updates and Highlights #UH27

It's the first of four consecutive days without baseball. Thanks, Giants. Who is he? Yusmeiro Petit is most currently known as the NL Pennant winning Giants safety valve. The Venezuelan came up as a starting pitcher, but has had little success at it in any of his three stops. Show More Summary

Rooting for the (Previously) Unrootable

All eyes on you, Lackey. I was pretty grumpy about the trade that brought John Lackey to the Cardinals as the non-waiver trade deadline approached. I was never a fan of the guy, and the trade sent away a popular cost-controlled young arm that had shown some promise in his time with the Cardinals. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 7: Stagger or Swagger?

Following its first loss, cracks are starting to become crevasses. Let's face it: Oregon is just not a very good team right now. Despite the fact that Oregon got completely hosed by officials against Arizona, the reasons the Ducks couldn't...Show More Summary

Series Preview: NLCS (Giants vs. Cardinals)

The Giants/Cardinals NLCS series at a glance. The playoffs resume this weekend, with the Cardinals having beaten Clayton Kershaw twice en route to a 4 game Divisional Series win. I'm not surprised at the Cardinals continued success against...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #44T

Baseball is back tonight! It seems like it's been forever. And it has... Who is he? Doug Rader, the Red Rooster, was a five-time Gold Glover at the hot corner. He also had several short stints as an MLB manager in the '80s, and his name sounds like a passable TV detective. Show More Summary

Most Wanted No More

Another team set is complete. While it might have been more topical to scan a Kolten Wong or Matt Carpenter card tonight, I thought I'd focus on a guy that pitched in 12 games for the Cardinals 6 years ago, and returned to relative obscurity soon after that. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2012 Topps Opening Day #43

The only thing missing from the Wild Card Game is a devilish game show host. Anyway, playoffs -- go! Who is he? Angel Pagan is an outfielder with a strangely self-contradictory name. After finally breaking in with the Cubs as a part timer, he became a fixture for the Mets (who originally drafted him) who relied on his speed. Show More Summary

Series Preview: NLDS (Cardinals vs. Dodgers)

The Cardinals/Dodgers series at a glance. For the third time in six years, the Cardinals face the Dodgers in the playoffs, this time in the divisional round. Both St. Louis and Los Angeles won their respective divisions, leaving each side out of the foolishness that is the Wild Card Game. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 6: Thirsty Thursday

After a bye week, Oregon returns to the field hungry. And thirsty. After surviving a scare up in Eastern Washington, Oregon returns to action tonight in a weeknight late game against the Arizona Wildcats. The bye week couldn't have come...Show More Summary

Munched

Baseball is a funny game. Baseball cards are a funny thing. Its's amazing that you can watch a guy take some of the worst looking at-bats in the history of the game in one moment only to end up the hero after nearly five hours of game of game is played. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #385T

The final weekend of regular season baseball is upon us. Also, Derek Jeter did something. Who is he? Mickey Lolich is one of the Detroit Tigers all-time greats. He was a three-time All-Star pitcher and World Series MVP in 1968 as part of a hard-fought series with the Cardinals where he won 3 games. Show More Summary

Droppin' Dimes

As the Cardinals season stumbles and sputters to the finish line, let's take a look at some... cards. Nick runs one of the finest blogs around in Dime Boxes. When someone's interests are as varied and as broad as Nick's apparently are (is there anything he doesn't collect?), it's bound to make some compelling reading material. Show More Summary

The Box That Rocks

I decided to reward myself after a hot afternoon of running errands. After having a bit of good luck with the 100 card repacks they often carry at the local Walgreens, I decided to check to see if they had anything on the shelves on Saturday. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 4: Cougars Gonna Coug

Oregon faces their first conference test against a team leading the nation in passing yards. Coming off another perfect non-conference run, Oregon makes a run up to the Palouse tonight for the first time since 2010. Last week's win over Wyoming was pretty comfortable, if not quite the rout that the gambling folks were predicting. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps #490

It's crunch time in the MLB. Whose cuisine reigns supreme? Who is he? Cody Ross is a journeyman outfielder who has played for 7 teams in 11 big league seasons. While never an All-Star, his huge performance in the 2010 playoffs netted him an NLCS MVP award to go with a World Series ring. Show More Summary

Chipz 'n Dip

They're colorful and fun, but as a collector I don't know what to do with them. I haven't done a pack break in awhile, and I have a bunch of stuff cluttering up my desk. Let's see what we can do here. I really like these Chipz. I like buying a pack and opening them and having something substantial fall out. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 3: Good Morning Football

Oregon faces their final nonconference test in the earliest home start time I can ever remember. There was a moment during last week's battle between top 7 teams where it felt like the game was getting away from the Ducks. Michigan St. Show More Summary
