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

Airbrushed Fridays: 1984 Topps Traded #29T

Adventures in airbrushery. Who is he? Ken Dayley was a lefty reliever whose 11 year career spanned most of the '80s, which afforded him some time to wear the powder blue uniforms that were fashionable at the time. Dayley pitched at a...Show More Summary

Topps's Weird Cousin

I have a soft spot for Bowman, possibly because it's rarely ever in my face. In an effort to do something about my sad 2014 Cardinals want list, I worked out a trade with S.Mack Talk where only 2014 cards exchanged hands. This was a quick 'n dirty trade, free of my usual procrastination (months) and threats to send pounds of cards across the country. Show More Summary

Trade Don't Lie

Is it really almost basketball season, too? Single game tickets just went on sale for the upcoming NBA season, and I ended up snagging some nosebleeds for the Blazers opener against Oklahoma City the other day. Buying NBA tickets in the 90+ degree summer heat really took me out of reality for a moment, though. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 2: Sparty Pays a Visit

This is the week that we find out if Oregon has a team this year. I always try to reset my expectations for the Ducks at the beginning of every season. This is based on what I've witnessed in the past, where I've seen teams come from out of nowhere to destroy nationally ranked opponents on national television. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #469

Extreme Close-Up!! Extreme Close-Up!! Who is he? Jesse Crain is a right-handed reliever who spent his 10 year career with the Twins and the White Sox. After pitching in relative obscurity (which is generally what happens with non-closer relievers), Crain had a phenomenal start in 2013, leading to an All-Star selection. Show More Summary

They Almost Brought Back Slurpee Discs

What, no extra fun with your cheap sugary drink? Amidst the excitement and confusion of another excellent package sent to me by The Junior Junkie, I became fixated one particular object that fell out of the package. There was this round, lenticular thing... Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 1: South Dakota?!

The Oregon Ducks begin another football season with renewed title hopes and one of the top rated players in the game. Pinch yourself. Rub your eyes a few times. Stare out your window in disbelief, if you will. It's, gulp, football season again. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1959 Topps #278

Airbrushed Fridays returns after a short hiatus with a card from one of my favorite sets. Who is he? Chuck Essegian was a scrub, but he is one of only two people in the world who can rightly say they participated in both the World Series and the Rose Bowl. Show More Summary

A Trade Post For No Reason

A fellow collector asks "do I need a reason??" The answer, of course, is no. Jeff from 2x3 Heroes sent me an out of the blue stack of cards. He is one of the ones that I send out of the blue stack of cards to, so this seems appropriate. Show More Summary

Bargain Blaster

Featuring the familiar One Exclusive Patch Card Inside! I had a $5 off coupon burning a hole in my pocket and finally put it to good use last weekend. Along with my first dip into 2014 Allen & Ginter territory, I also snagged a 2014 Topps Series 2 blaster at a more affordable price. Show More Summary

Understanding Ginter

Trying to come to terms with the latest Topps release. For the second year in a row, I managed to completely ignore the release of the unfortunately named Topps Allen & Ginter's (hereafter referred to as Allen & Ginter, A&G or just Ginter) for several weeks until I just couldn't help myself. Show More Summary

Ozzie #503 Comes to the 503

Another Listia win becomes one of my lower numbered Wizard cards. At this point, I'd probably make a better player collector than a team collector. It's much easier to rationalize a single card pickup here and there, but I've always had a hard time with buying singles because the thrill factor isn't really there for me. Show More Summary

So Long, Topps BUNT

And thanks for nothing. Literally nothing. I gave Topps BUNT a spin this season. Topps BUNT, aside from being bizarrely capitalized like a lot of bad decisions on the internet, is the virtual trading card app from the MLB exclusive license holder. Show More Summary
