Airbrushed Classics: Tom Seaver

I'm off to the Blazers game tonight, so here's a look at a previously featured airbrushed gem. Enjoy!

Rejoice, Rejoice, for The Group Break Hath Been Broken

The highlights of the 2014 Topps Mini Group Break. I don't know why I thought it would be a great idea to do a group break during the busiest time of the year, but here we are. After suffering through a bought of petty mail theft (isn't...Show More Summary

More Sweet Spot

I'm trapped inside with sports on the TV as Noah's Ark is being assembled outside my door. Well, I don't know about you, but I'm not off to a tremendous start in the whole bowl pick 'em thing. While I continue to wait for the group break box to arrive (now scheduled for Monday), here's another pack break. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2012 Bowman #40

Are we officially in the post-PED era now? Who is he? Melky Cabrera is a Dominican born outfielder whose rise to prominence coincided with a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. Earlier this year, we pondered what 2014 would be like for some prominent players who were recently busted. Show More Summary

Contest Update and a New Mailing Address

Don't forget to enter the contest and make your picks! We're closing in on the deadline for another Cards on Cards Pick 'Em Party Where You Get Free Cards... okay, there's probably a better name for this. Go here and get the details if you haven't signed up yet. Show More Summary

Contest Time! College Bowl Pick 'Em 6

Win baseball cards for being right at something for once in your life. If you dare? For the sixth strraight year, I am giving away free cards to the best prognosticators of (mostly) meaningless college football games. Past winners include...Show More Summary

Bad News, Everyone!

People are jerks. My deepest apologies are in order. I didn't receive any mail for almost an entire week. Getting nothing in my mailbox in a single day is pretty unusual, so this extended break from getting things was super alarming....Show More Summary

Group Break Update, a New Contest, and More

Just a little housekeeping here. Late last week I sprang a little group break on you all. I just wanted to let everyone know that the box is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, although it's being delivered by USPS now and they have left my mailbox empty for the past two days. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks: Pac-12 Championship Game

Oregon plays for all of the Pac-12 marbles today, as well as a berth in the first top level college football playoffs. Here we go. Straight off a resounding Civil War win, Oregon faces their final conference test in a conference championship game... Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1974 Topps Traded #390T

The Group Break starts later today. Until then, here's an airbrushed guy. You probably know him. Who is he? Before he became the base-tossing fiery manager man that led Seattle to a record setting regular season and guided Tampa Bay through their waning Devil Ray years, Sweet Lou Piniella was a pretty solid outfielder. Show More Summary

A Lowbrow Group Break

Claim a team starting Friday. It won't cost much. In a weaker moment the other night I bought a deeply discounted box of 2014 Topps Mini from the Topps website. When I came to my senses, I remembered that I'm not really a set collector...Show More Summary

Cards from Across the Border: The Red & The Black

New Blazers cards from buckstorecards. My oft-neglected Blazers collection has had a bit of a facelift done on it recently. I'm current with my binders (now 3 of them!) and if I can just get around to working on the want lists, it'll be like I'm a real card collector or something. Show More Summary

This Hit the Spot

A buck a pack for something Sweet. I picked up some 2005 Upper Deck Sweet Spot packs off the floor (literally) at a show I attended awhile back and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I posted the first pack over at APTBNL awhile back and I thought I'd share the rest here. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 14: Civil War

Can a rivalry game also be a trap game? The Civil War is upon us yet again. Last season, a reeling Oregon team barely survived the matchup with the in-state rivals on their own turf in a game I managed to completely block out of my memory. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #646

Take a break from buying things to check out this Photoshopped thing. Who is he? For the second straight week, we have a former Cardinal on a 2014 Topps Series 2 card. Haren was a one-time pitching prospect with St. Louis and was at the heart of the deal that brought Mark Mulder over from Oakland. Show More Summary

Happy Thanksgiving

Fly, Eagles Fly! And have a happy #BirdDay

Cards from Across the Border: Cardinals Edition

A trade so nice I split it thrice. Occasionally I'll get a package of cards in the mail so generous that I can't conceivably do it justice with my typical five-images-and-a-few-comments approach. A package arrived from Sportscards From...Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 13: The Home Stretch

After another week off to heal some injuries, Oregon hits the field for their final home game of the season. Emerging star tight end Pharaoh Brown suffered a devastating knee injury on the field at the end of the Utah game, but Oregon...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2014 Topps #428

I have yet to find a single Photoshopped card from 2014 Topps Update, so here's something from Series 2. Who is he? Once a Cardinals organizational soldier, Skip Schumaker has become something of a journeyman in his post-Rally Squirrel days. Show More Summary
