Where things stand after the first week. Well, that was a crazy first week of college basketball tourney play. Of course, you could pretty much say these same words every year, but there's something about what went down this year that makes things feel extra crazy. Show More Summary
Go win a thing (that I tried to give away once already)! Ends at midnight tonight.
Sign up now! There's just a handful of hours left to join the contest. Get in before the first game tips in the morning!
Happy new year? We've already seen some more sets released in 2018, so it's high time I get caught up with trades and other things from the previous year. Here's a leftover bundle I received in person from Gavin before I escaped Portland for the holidays, the highlight of which was this awesome low numbered copper parallel of ex-Blazer Allen Crabbe.

Is anyone putting together 2018 Topps Heritage? I got an early start on my want list for this year's Topps Heritage set, which means my want list is nearly the whole set. I think that's okay, though. It's always good to know what you're taking on.Out of the five short printed cards that I've pulled so far, two of them were dupes. Show More Summary
There are multiple blasters to win! Participate! March Radness X (as in tenth, but also EXTREME) is nearly upon us. Fill out a bracket and you might win some baseball cards.Happy Thigh-Day!
Celebrating ten years of March Radness with the biggest contest yet. #MarchRadness For the tenth year (seriously?!) of this contest, I am going to step it up a bit with the prizes. If you've participated before, you know the drill. Fill out a bracket, compete with others, and maybe win a prize. Show More Summary
Both are birds. Well, we're well into March and I'm still cleaning up last year's mess. Dennis from Too Many Verlanders / Manninghams has been sending me great stuff for years, and I'm always excited about what he sends. What I'm not always excited about is scanning cards, but you know the drill. Show More Summary
Baseball Card Partying like it's 1969. Topps Heritage has landed, which means it's a new baseball card year for me, now that I'm trying my best to ignore the flagship set. I was a little hesitant to dive right in this year, as Ohtani-mania is threatening to devour everything in its path. Show More Summary
Card show finds that I had trouble categorizing. I was in a buying mood at the last card show, which isn't always the case. I picked up a bunch of fairly odd stuff, much of it not even baseball, at a table that had dime boxes where I spent most of my time. Show More Summary
Trophies from the card show dollar bin. Even though Google Maps tells me I am more than two thousand miles (31 hours of travel time!) away from Busch Stadium, Cardinals cards seem to be in somewhat short supply around these parts. Recently, I took advantage of a $1 bin at the monthly card show that actually had some things of interest for me. Show More Summary
Last month's first place contest prize remains unclaimed! If you participated in the annual bowl pick 'em contest and you used a name like Anaconda37, please contact me as soon as possible. I need to know where to send your stuff! If...Show More Summary
Single card joy from @ SafeAtHomeShop @pksteinberg and @thedimwit to peruse. I'm still starting to get settled into the groove of the week, so it's time for a quick blast about a few cards received recently in individually wrapped packages. Show More Summary
Panini's blister pack NBA team sets contain a special bonus this year. During the second half of the Blazers recent overtime victory over the Charlotte Hornets, Erin disappeared for a bit to the team shop and picked up a 2017-18 NBA Hoops Blazers team set for me. Show More Summary
And former Cardinals. Thanks to @pksteinberg of Baseball Every Night, I now have roughly 55% of the brand new Topps Series 1 set. Unfortunately, there are only a paltry 11 Cardinals cards in the entire series. I know that this has long been a problem for certain teams, and now we've reached the point where St. Show More Summary
2008 was nothing special, at least for the Cardinals. Nearly ten years ago, Upper Deck tried something that'd never been done before, and hasn't been attempted since. They put together a set that included two cards for each game played in the long MLB season, one for each participating team. Show More Summary
Congrats to the Eagles, and Philadelphia - if there's anything left of you. Stunning! I don't even know what to say.
#FlyEaglesFly It's hard for me to know now if I've been an Eagles fan since I first played Tecmo Super Bowl, or if it all started when I first gorged myself on $5 boxes of 1990 Pro Set. In any case, somewhere around that time, I declared...Show More Summary
Coming soon. Can you believe it? It's February already. Pitchers and catchers will be reporting soon (unless they strike.) Weather is already getting warmer (that might not actually be a good thing... we didn't really have a winter here in Portland.) 2018 baseball cards are out! Ehh... Show More Summary
In better news, it looks like someone checked the want list. I've had to restrict my shipping to Canada of late, with the rates to send tiny packages with just a handful of cards from US to Canada threatening to overtake the cost of a decent dinner. Show More Summary
