Airbrushed Fridays: 2008 Topps #433

Spring Training begins! Who is he? Carlos Silva had a 9 year major league career, more than most of us, including 7 seasons as a starter. He finished with a.500 W-L record and fairly pedestrian numbers, his best season coming in 2005 with the Twins where he walked just 9 batters all season. Show More Summary

My 2015 Topps Progress

Here's what I've accomplished so far. I've polished off the Cardinals base team set for Series One. This is probably the earliest that I've ever managed this, but I also have the fact that there were only something like 10 Cardinals cards (including multi-player cards) in the whole series. Show More Summary


Some Blazers, a Wizard and a Duck walk into a blog... At some point this week the power went out in my place and I have been too busy to figure out why my scanner and PC were no longer on speaking terms. A few cables were unplugged and...Show More Summary

Mercy Mercy

R.I.P. Jerome Kersey. I was stunned to learn of the sudden passing of Jerome Kersey, leaving us with just three of the Bill Schonely-proclaimed "Best Starting Five in the NBA". Kersey was more likely to get a floorburn than knock down...Show More Summary

Someone Put Music in My Sportsball Cards

Collectibles are not always the baseball kind. Jack White's insert card in the 2015 Topps set sparkled a fair amount of pop culture interest. Though it wasn't quite the mopey freeze frame of his visit to Wrigley Field that sparked a million memes, it did become an interesting conversation piece as the new Topps Series One was rolled out.

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps Stickers #55

One of the newest Cardinals had a little work done. Who is he? Mark Reynolds is the hard-swinginest, home run-hittinest free swinging baseball man the game has seen in some time. Okay, fine, he just strikes out a ton and hits plenty of home runs. Show More Summary

Spanish Silver Ink

It's officially the NBA All-Star Break! Victor Claver may not be a Blazer by the time the league resumes play as the trading deadline is looming and his playing time has been rather scarce. That didn't prevent me from picking up a snappy certified autograph of the third year Spanish forward thanks to a Listia auction win. Show More Summary

2015 Topps: The Blaster

What is a blaster supposed to be, anyway? Where did that name even come from? Here are my final thoughts on 2015 Topps Series One as I take a look what I got in my blaster last week. I will probably buy a few more packs here and there, but that will probably be it. Show More Summary

A Clear and Present Wainwright

My second clear Adam Wainwright parallel is my second clear parallel, period. Last summer, I acquired a rare Adam Wainwright parallel through a somewhat surprising channel, thinking I probably wouldn't be lucky enough to pick up anything like this again. Show More Summary

2015 Topps: The Hanger Pack

Some highlights of another batch of new Topps cards I purchased. I stopped by Target yesterday and am now very thankful that my trip earlier in the week was derailed. I never would have made it into a random Fred Meyer and I never would have found 2015 Topps cards, because my usual Target still doesn't have any of it. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #490

2014 was so, so long ago. Who is he? Logan Morrison is a part time outfielder and first baseman who came up in the Marlins system. He was, to my knowledge, the first player to get demoted to the minors for focusing more on Twitter than his game during his time with Florida. Show More Summary

2015 Topps: The Jumbo

A first look at the new year's brand new Topps product. I made a mad dash to Target last night to check and see if the new 2015 Topps Series One had hit the shelves yet, but my plans were derailed. I know this is a common complaint,Show More Summary

But Wait... There's More!

The generosity continues. A couple of weeks after Bob Walk The Plank sent me a hit-packed foursome of trading cards, the Pirates fan struck again with three more impressive goodies. I was drooling a bit over a gold sparkly Adam Wainwright card, and lo and behold, it brought some friends along with it. Show More Summary

Just the Hits

2015 Topps is live now. This isn't about that. The next person on the list who participated in my December mini group break is Bob Walk the Plank. Matthew sent just four cards, but they are all of the sort of notoriety that gets you in a top loader and a premium position in my collection. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1978 Topps #501

Big thanks to GCRL for today's selection. Who is he? The venerable Dave Roberts is back for another feature here at Cards on Cards. Roberts had a solid 11 year career as a big league starter, Roberts pitched for 8 different teams, and is notable for being one of the best Jewish pitchers of all-time. Show More Summary

You Can Always Get Scammed

Even hobbies have their villains. People that spend the big money on huge quantities of cards, or even the big money on just one or two cards, definitely know that the card collecting "Hobby" as its known isn't immune to dirtbags. Like...Show More Summary

Sports 'n Stuff

Red cards from Dodger Blue country. I've been having a run of lousy sports luck, which made me seriously question how much I want to invest my time and emotions into games of men I don't know and will never meet. I do this from time to time, but lately it's been a serious test. Show More Summary

A New Year is (Almost) Upon Us

Let's put 2014 Topps to bed. Even though I'm unusually excited (no more white borders!) about the soon-to-be-unleashed 2015 Topps set, I haven't looked at the checklist yet. It went live today, and I'm sure that the Cardinals were at least adequately represented. Show More Summary

Catching Up With Trade Posts

Shiny Cardinal cards from a Red Sox fan. Last month, my stash of Topps Chipz was the impetus for a Red Sox-for-Cardinals trade, this time with Catching Up With Collecting. It was my first time trading with CUWC, and it did not disappoint. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2013 Topps #416

Pitchers and catchers report in five weeks! Pitchers and catchers report in five weeks! Who is he? Jordan Lyles is a right handed starting pitcher for the Colorado Rockies. He broke into the majors at just 20 years old and is still looking to put together the proverbial breakout season. Show More Summary
