Still viable. I'm still active on Listia after all these years, after nearly ditching the site this past winter over an auction dispute where their customer service was being completely unreasonable. For the most part, the issues that...Show More Summary

Sports Cards from All of My Teams

What in the world is going on with Wacha? Nevermind, here are some cards. Last month, a bubble mailer rolled in from Sportscards From The Dollar Store, hitting up all of my sportsball teams. It's times like these that I realize I have a lot of teams. Show More Summary


Money changes hands. Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts agreed to a contract extension today, keeping him in Portland through at least the 2019-20 season. That season is entirely theoretical because the Earth will probably be completely inhabited by nonhumanoid entities, or at least that's what I think when I ponder the year "2020". Show More Summary

Anatomy of a Baseball Card: Pascual Perez 1991 Leaf

An interesting life. A stint with the Yankees. That hair. I can say that I was very aware of what a Jheri curl was when I was young, even if I didn't always know the name for it. I don't think anyone boring has ever rocked a Jheri curl. Show More Summary

On the Brink

Baseballers and basketballers from @CardJunk as I try to make sense of the intersecting seasons. A big heap of cards from my two favorite teams arrived the other day, courtesy of old-school card blogger Cardboard Junkie. This blog was...Show More Summary

80 Cards!

Quantity, not quality? I was in a bit of a buying mood at the last card show I attended, so I decided to sample this year's Bowman by picking up a blaster for $17. Bowman is usually a refreshing change of pace for me after the Topps flagship set has been out for awhile, but I don't usually pay much attention to it aside from a sample pack or two.

April's Loot

My latest trip to @thelootlocker nets a card as thick as a brick. The end of the month means the rent is due and I have debts to pay. It also means a box of hobby packs and supplies from The Loot Locker. Let's check out what I got this time around.2015 Bowman's Best Normally these packs have 5 cards in them, but mine only had this one in it. Show More Summary

Anatomy of a Baseball Card: Randy Johnson 1989 Upper Deck

Hornswoggled. I picked up this well known rookie card out of a dime box last weekend. Upon further inspection, it's clear that the card is in less than perfect shape. I could be kicking myself for not grabbing the other copy that was...Show More Summary

My First Ozzie Smith Auto

The title says it all. As you may recall, I ran into a rare bit of luck recently and pulled a nice Michael Conforto auto. While my eyes initially turned to dollar signs like one of those greedy guys in the old singing frog Looney Tunes cartoons, I was quickly presented with an offer I couldn't refuse.

Celebrating a Blazers playoff win with a Listia win. I picked this 'Sheed card up off of Listia (yeah, I still use it) the other day, and it was waiting in the mailbox for me tonight when I got home from watching the Blazers/Clippers playoff game down at the local watering hole. Show More Summary

Late to the Party: Heritage Edition

My annual "I finally bought some Topps Heritage" post. Last month's Loot Locker packs notwithstanding, last week was my first opportunity to actually dig in to this year's Topps Heritage set. I don't really sweat the timing of it all, to be perfectly honest. Show More Summary

Anatomy of a Baseball Card: Michael Jordan 1990 "White Sox"

The greatest basketball player impersonating a baseball player. Before he entertained the idea for real, Michael Jordan apparently did a photo op with the Chicago White Sox, taking batting practice and pressing the flesh. It's the sort of thing that Billy Crystal does every year. Show More Summary

Spring Cleaning 2016 is Coming

How do you organize your cards? Have I been doing things all wrong? Recently, I began organizing my doubles from sets I am trying to collect by team instead of in number order. I started doing this as part of last year's semi-successful Spring Cleaning trade-off. Show More Summary


The Cardinals are playing like clowns right now, so here are some jokes. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. I get jokes.(Thanks to Waiting 'til Next Year for the, er, humor.)

Cubs Fatigue

Cards from the other side of the rivalry courtesy of @TomSOlson I knew it was going to be bad when I was already tired of hearing about the Cubs before an official pitch had been thrown this season. The lovable losers are a lot less lovable these days, with their 7th ranked payroll and frontrunner status this season. Show More Summary

Cards with Integrity

A solid trade package arrives. True story: I actually own a cracked bat. It's Chris Denorfia's bat, in fact. I've told the story before, but another fringe major leaguer lost the grip on his bat during a game in the waning moments of the last incarnation of the Portland Beavers AAA franchise.

Cards from the Bayou

A huge haul from @Teejnola includes another player I had to Google. My mailbox has been full of great stuff from Junkies lately. Unlike other junkies I'm familiar with, The Junior Junkie probably didn't have to dig through the reycling bins and scraps at the local construction site to find things of value for this deal. Show More Summary

March Loot

The latest @thelootlocker installment came with a big hit. I'm going with an abbreviated version this time around as two of the packs of my latest Loot Locker were my first two 2016 Topps Heritage packs. I always make it a point to collect this set, so I'm sure I'll have plenty of ink to spill (or keys to smack) about it as the year goes on. Show More Summary

Results, Results, Results

Did you win? Did I? Contest results and Group Break results from @allstarboxbreak March Radness is over! It's April already and it's probably already time to go out and mow your lawn. Villanova dropped North Carolina on a buzzer beater tonight, and now there are prizes to be distributed.In 1st Place was reader Danny L. Show More Summary

6 Shocking Trading Cards That Finally Turned Me into a Cubs Fan

Actual cards from actual envelopes. First of all, welcome to April. (It's just past midnight on the west coast.) It's funny to me that it's becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between clickbait and parody these days, so...Show More Summary
