All This and Steve Sax, Too!

My second ever card of 3-time All-Star Curt Simmons is a certified autograph. In the midst of endless reproductions of Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle cards (well, not him so much anymore), a lot of good to great players of the past end up getting lost in the shuffled. Show More Summary

Nothin' But Bangers

A-sides, hit singles, chart toppers, etc. When you deal with Baseball Card Breakdown, you know you're gonna get the good stuff. We completed a trade all the way back in the fall of 2016 involving a George Brett relic that I pulled, as well as some other items in my trade box, and Gavin responded in kind with a whole mess of shiny Cardinals.

Contest Results!

I'm gonna need some addresses from a few of you. Before I get into the details, I am going to need the following people to send me an email with your current mailing address: MrHaverkamp Raz Rhubarb_Runner Need More Cardboard Got it? Good. Show More Summary

A Glance at December's Loot

Another trip to @thelootlocker reveals another hit. Since I knew I wouldn't be receiving any cards as gifts this holiday season (people tend to know better than to do something like that), I purchased myself a gift once again at The Loot Locker. Show More Summary

'Twas the Season

Still cleaning up the wrapping paper. I don't get many traditional Christmas cards, but I did end up with a couple of surprise little white envelopes around the holiday from kind bloggers out there. I'm sure their generosity will be rewarded in the new year. Show More Summary

A Shiny End to the New Year

Plus contest results and more! The year is winding down, and like any other year, I'm way behind in some trades and blogging about trades. The good news is that there's a whole 'nother year ahead of us, unless we all get nuked to oblivion before this time next year.The contest-within-a-contest, the Belk Bowl prediction game is over, and wow...

Group Break Results and a Contest Update

And a Merry Christmas Eve to everyone. I'm a sucker for an affordable group break with a guaranteed team spot, and Tracy's Box Breaks pops up now and again with just the thing that I seek. This time around, boxes of 2016 Bowman Chrome and 2008 Tristar PROjections High Series were opened and distributed. Show More Summary

PPBBB: Panini Prizm Basketball Blaster Break

It's the last day of fall. Why not check out a new box of hoopsters and hoops stars? I was a big fan of last year's Prizm NBA set, stopping just short of actually trying to put together a set of basketball cards for the first time in decades. Show More Summary

Anatomy of a Baseball Card: Bob Gibson 1992 Ziploc

A truly odd oddball. To get into my head space in 1992, I would have definitely dipped into my budget to purchase food storage bags if it came with a baseball card included, despite my meager $3.50 hourly wage. With that being said, I don't know how it came to be that I didn't know about Ziploc baseball cards until 2016. Show More Summary

Contest Reminder!

Don't forget to sign up for the Bowl Pick 'Em Contest. #collect Time is running out! If you haven't already, check out this post and sign up for the contest before the games start (in less than 48 hours.) Don't forget to make your Belk pick as well. Show More Summary

Odds & Ends & Pins

Cards and things from Canada in all shapes and sizes. One of the joys of being a full on team collector is that you get to experience weird and wonderful oddballs that don't necessarily fit everyone's type of collection. In short, if it's got Cardinals on it in some way, it's something I am going to want. Show More Summary

Contest Time! College Bowl Pick 'Em #8

Pick games and win baseball cards as the contest returns for the 8th consecutive year. For the eighth straight year, I am giving away free cards to the best prognosticators of (mostly) meaningless college football games. Past winners...Show More Summary

Sapphire Gems and More

Online-exclusive bling and a whole lot more. I've already looked at this Adam Wainwright card on at least three separate occasions since it arrived courtesy of P-Town Tom, but I still had to look it up when doing this post. Topps did...Show More Summary

November's Loot

Another month in the books, another box from @thelootlocker to unpack. The Loot Locker is an online store/monthly service that sells a box of hobby packs and card supplies for just the cost of a blaster box. I've purchased their baseball box quite a few times this year, and I feel like I've had pretty considerable luck. Show More Summary


Double the Piscotty, double the fun? How did I not know there were two Stephen Piscotty cards in this year's Topps Allen & Ginter set? Well, I'm not going to complain too much, because it's not like it's Aroldis Chapman or anything.Show More Summary

Why I Have Want Lists

A bunch more most wanted wants go down. While we wait to see if MLB and MLBPA are ever going to resolve their collective bargaining issues, let's check out some Cardinals sent to my mailbox by Brian of Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 13: Civil War for Pride

It all comes down to Ducks vs. Beavers with state bragging rights on the line. Something very unexpected happened last week that I'm still having trouble grasping. The Ducks beat then-12th ranked Utah. On the road. It was their first road win. Show More Summary

This Package is Fire

Cue the emojis. I figured I'd go into the Thanksgiving break on a high note with this one. A treasure trove of wondrous cards arrived from buckstorecards recently, which ticked boxes in all corners of my collections. (Well, maybe not the hockey ones. Show More Summary

New Allen & Ginter Want List Online

About six months too late. I finally added my 2016 A&G want list to the blog, if anyone has any extras laying around. Also, this bad boy is up for grabs if you've got something similar to offer, and more in the Cardinals department of things. Show More Summary
