Oddball Listia Find

This is the Eighties-ist. I know that many have given up on Listia, but I still find it to be an occasional source of interesting finds. Even better (at least for me), I've been able to get rid of thousands of doubles and some junk wax era stars while making the folks at Big Postage Stamp very happy. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2008 Topps Updates and Highlights #UH258

Arthur Lee. Who is he? Arthur Rhodes was a consummate professional southpaw reliever. After spending nearly a decade with the Baltimore Orioles, Rhodes bounced around from team to team, throwing from the other arm that people don't always throw with, hoping to retire batters. Show More Summary

Back to Baseball

At last, the horrible All-Star break is over. It's baseball time. I'm technically on vacation until the 27th, so words and cards posted here may be even more sporadic.

The Moyer Has Landed

A major shake-up in the 10 Most Wanted list. I started this blog more than 7 years ago, and my second post led off with an image of the 1991 Bowman Jamie Moyer card. It was a tiny, grainy image I swiped from the internet, back when finding images of a particular baseball card could actually be rather difficult. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps #537

Is it just me, or is this year's Series Two the biggest Photoshopped set ever? Who is he? Steven Souza is a speedy outfielder who was a 3rd round pick of the Nationals back when they were still getting used to not being in Canada. He's...Show More Summary

Give Me All Your Hamms

Not to be confused with Hamm's, the beer refreshing. I need more than one of this card, obviously. Dare I say that I need all of them? Send me all the Hamm you can muster, and at the end of the year you will be rewarded.

Dollar Store Finds

Cards on a blog, words on a screen. I rarely send out-of-the-country packages these days due to outrageous shipping costs, but I'll always make an exception for Sportscards From The Dollar Store. Did you know that the ubiquitous Dollar...Show More Summary

All Numbered

These sports cards from Thorzul all have one thing in common. This spring, Thorzul held a group break that consisted of the contents of a big all-serial-numbered multi-sports lot he purchased. Being both a sucker for grab bags, random chance and things that are serial numbered, I opted in and claimed my favorite teams. Show More Summary

Series Two Trade Bait

When Big Papi was Medium-Sized Papi. I guess I don't have a lot to say about Series Two, so I thought I'd just throw up some scans of some of the more interesting cards that I don't need. I have a Cardinals want list, a Topps Heritage...Show More Summary

First Half Champions

Banking wins is good, but this team needs to be the best in October. The good times and vibes abound with the Cardinals right now as the team has jumped out to a 50-24 start and a sizable division lead over two very talented teams in the Cubs and the Pirates. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps #364

The ol' underhand toss. Who is he? Carlos Pena was a slugger and a one-time All-Star who spent most of his career with the Tigers and the Rays. He was never known for his defense or for hitting for high average, but his power kept him around the game for more than a decade. Show More Summary

Spring May Be Over, But the Cleaning is Still Going On

White Sox, Padres and Reds (Oh my!) Plus some other teams that no one really collects, I guess? I've been working on a couple of projects and going through my entire collection to pull cards for a couple of people who are very deserved over the past couple of weeks. Show More Summary

Offseason Teams

How much do you care about your other teams in the offseason? For me, it's not always a lot. It's hard for me to get too fired about sports that aren't actually actively scheduling contests among their teams. I'm not sure if I've always...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps Opening Day #75

Sometimes you just gotta let it go. Who is he? Jimmy Rollins is in his 16th major league season as a shortstop, a mainstay of the Phillies teams throughout the ought years and beyond. The Phillies are a team that was very successfulShow More Summary

That Time I Got Derek Jeter's Autograph

Certified. That's right. Something funny happened after I headed home from a card show last winter. I had plunked down a relatively small amount of cash on a box of 1997 Bowman cards with a rather hilarious $125 guarantee (guarantee void in Tennessee) and one of the more hideous designs lurking within. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1986 Topps Traded #122T

Completing the trilogy. Who is he? Claudell Washington was a two-time All-Star with an impressive 9 years between appearances in the midsummer classic. The speedy outfielder logged time in 7 big league uniforms over the course of his 17 year career. Show More Summary

Some Cards Show Finds Found for Me

"Are you sure card collecting is your thing?" he asks. I just have a quick post for you tonight as I'm in the middle of another sorting project as well as pulling cards from all of the darkest corners of my home for a Mets collector and an Astros collector. Show More Summary

E-Mail Order Cards

A few recent online purchases. I feel like I don't do this often enough here, so I thought I'd show off some cards I bought recently to add to my collection. I usually find another reason to buy cards from COMC and then figure I'll save on shipping by throwing in a few (or a lot more than a few) purchases for myself. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps #639

What can you say about this guy? Who is he? What to say about Josh Hamilton? He was the overall number one draft pick in the 1999 MLB Draft, but it would take until 2007 before the can't miss prospect would play in the majors. Hamilton went through years of problems with drugs and an organizational change before he made his debut with the Reds. Show More Summary

I Traded with Nachos Grande

And all I got was this lousy t-shirt. (Not pictured: the t-shirt) I'm almost caught up with March's packages, which means I shouldn't be typing the words "caught up" at all. From longtime blogger Nachos Grande came a trading first for me: I got something functional and wearable from him in the form of a (not actually lousy) Cardinals t-shirt. Show More Summary
