Sports Wishing

The Cardinals could use a little Freese Magic (circa 2011) right now. A few weeks back we looked at some cards from Jeff of Wish They Still Came With Bubblegum. Lo and behold, tonight we have some more to show you from an envelope that arrived last month. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 6: We Can Get Down

Oregon heads back to the road with a lot of moving parts. Last Saturday's win over Colorado raised as many questions as it provided answers. It appears that the Ducks are going to try to ride out Vernon Adams Jr's broken finger for a...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1975 Topps #572

Just happy to be here. Who is he? Roger Nelson pitched professionally for 17 seasons, though he only appeared in 135 big league games. His minor league career began in 1963 and ended in Portland in 1979 with Pittsburgh's AAA affiliate. Show More Summary

Something About the Playoffs

The time is nigh. The Cubs and Cardinals have faced each other more than two thousand times, but none of those times has been in the postseason. This is all about to change tomorrow. I thought about doing my usual preview that I've done the past few years for each playoff series. Show More Summary

So Many B's

Piles upon piles of cards from a fellow Allen & Ginter collector. Braves fan Matt, who runs the blog Bubba's Bangin' Batch of Baseball Bits (hereafter referred to as BBBBB) reached out to me a couple of times this year to get ahold of some of my unwanted Ginter goods. Show More Summary

The Season is Over

And soon there will nothing but hopeless bleak despair. Until then, it's playoff time! On Saturday afternoon, I snagged a $9.99 rack box of the new 2015 Topps Heritage High Series. Almost every card save for the inserts was a duplicate...Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 5: Now What?

How will the Ducks respond to a historic loss? At some point during last Saturday's debacle, I told my girlfriend that there was a good chance that this game marked the end of an era of Ducks football, as in the last time the school's football program would be relevant to the national sports discussion. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1990 Topps Traded #13T

Three days left in the season. Time to be geeked! Who is he? Glenn Braggs was an outfielder who came up with the Milwaukee Brewers back in their American League days. Braggs was a second round pick in 1983 and showed flashes of power in his years with the Brew Crew, though he never broke out as a star player. Show More Summary

They're Saying Bru-URNS, Bru-URNS

The Darryl Kile collection takes it up a notch. I'm almost caught up on the ol' trade posts. I'm going to show off a few cards I received in a trade package less than two months ago, which is quite recent in Cards on Cards terms. Bru...Show More Summary

Waino is Back? Waino is Back!

The ace returns. What would devastate most normal humans and what usually sidelines athletes of excellence for a calendar year has apparently only shelved Adam Wainwright for five months. Wainwright was activated from the DL and will be available out of the bullpen for tomorrow's doubleheader. Show More Summary

Heritage High Blaster Break

No Cardinals were harmed in the breaking of this box. It's been a long time since I've done a box break, let alone a blaster break, here at Cards on Cards. After tinkering the past couple of years with an online-exclusive factory set-only...Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 4: Bring on the Pac

Ready or not, here comes conference play. First, from the Cards on Cards Dept. of Corrections: I mistakenly mentioned last week that Georgia State was an FCS team. They are not. They actually play in the Sun Belt Conference, one of the lowest regarded conferences at college football's top level (FBS). Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps #384

A season of disappointment in the Emerald City. Who is he? Justin Ruggiano is a journeyman outfielder who, mostly as a reserve, has spent parts of 7 seasons in the majors with 5 different teams. Ruggiano was drafted by the Dodgers but broke into the bigs with Tampa Bay. Show More Summary

Are You Ready for the Playoffs?

What do you say, guys? Sure am! But I've been getting roughed a little bit in September and I'm afraid Mike will chain me to the radiator again like he did last playoffs. I am! But, ah, my thumb... maybe not so much. Absolutely! By the way, don't tell anyone, but I just cut someone's brake line. Show More Summary

More Big Guns

The hits, they keep on comin'. Much like last night's trade post, here we have another ridiculously great batch of cards, this time from longtime friend o' the blog Play at the Plate. While he shares a first name with the sender of yesterday's loot, his interests lean more in the Rangers direction rather than to Twinsdom. Show More Summary

The Big Guns

Nothing but top shelf here. Helping to clean up some of the mess, Brian of Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary agreed to swap 2015 Topps First Home Run Medallion cards pulled from blasters this year with the caveat that someone was going home with a bunch of unwanted Twins cards. Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 3: Time for a Tune-Up

Time to regroup, FCS style. Oregon looks to rebound this week after a very disappointing loss. It didn't seem at all likely that the Ducks would beat the Spartans after how leaky their defense was in the opening game, so it was all the more difficult to stomach when the defense stepped up but the offense still couldn't get it done. Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: 1992 Topps #26

The end of an era. Who is he? Mike Bielecki was a starting pitcher who spent 14 seasons in the major leagues, splitting time among five different franchises. Bielecki came up with the Pirates, drafted in the first round of the now defunct June secondary draft in 1979. Show More Summary

Down the Stretch They Come

The baseball races have gotten interesting all of a sudden. The Cardinals are finally starting to get a little bit healthier as the last few weeks of the season are upon us. (For some reason, the regular seasons stretches several days...Show More Summary

Hamm 'n Tape

Hamm supply is low. Please send help. In case you missed it, I'm trying to tilt all of the baseball cards that feature the ultramagnetic Jon Hamm towards the Pacific Northwest for some reason - more specifically, to my residence (or PO Box) in Portland. Show More Summary
