Enough Canvas to Paint a Picture

I feel like I've been posting a lot of the Upper Deck Canvas hockey inserts here recently, and you're about to get a whole slew of them today, but this was just too good a deal not to blog about.I'm not sure if this year's set is more...Show More Summary

Horseshoes & Hand Grenades

Looking back, it's been nothing but hockey for a few days running here. That's not something I intended, it just sort of unfolded that way. Don't worry though, I still collect baseball cards. Today I've got a COMC pick-up from last year that was too good to be true... Show More Summary

Super '70s

Poorly scanned cards from a forgettable era for the Cards. My scanner does not like cards from the '70s at all. I actually looked in to replacing the thing a few months ago when there were some clearance deals at the local office supplies...Show More Summary

Finishing One Package, and Starting Another

My open desk space is rapidly disappearing thanks to a seemingly endless supply of new cardboard being sent my way by other bloggers and trade partners. I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever get caught up, and also starting to worry that I don't have enough trade fodder lying around to return the favor to all of these generous folks. Show More Summary

Gobs of Ginter

A pile of 2015 Ginter rolls in, plus a March Radness update. It was a crazy week for March Radness! It's easy to say that every year, but this year seemed especially nuts. Many people's darling pick to win it all (Michigan State) went down in the first round. Show More Summary

Featured autograph - Maury Wills

I was able to get this 1992 Action Packed card of the Dodgers base stealing great autographed - because the card has an embossed surface, I wasn't sure whether someone like Wills would be able to sign the card cleanly without the 'raised' part of card causing the Sharpie to streak.

Signature Sundays - Retro Krejci

Just realized I've yet to do a Signature Sundays post in the month of March, yikes! With one last winter storm about to land in my area any minute now, a hockey card seemed most appropriate for tonight... This '94 SP Retro AutographShow More Summary

Featured autograph - Daniel Nava

I was finally able to get Nava's autograph, though this one is a 'supposed' set card [2014 Topps Allen and Ginter] as opposed to an add to my all-time Angels collection - the Bible verse he inscribes [Matthew 19:26 - “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”] gives his scribble some personality otherwise.

Catching up with Trades

A high quality Cardinals bounty. I believe I have finally turned a corner in my organizational skills when it comes to my Cardinals collection. Soon, the want lists will be expanding and I'll have a better idea of what I need and what I never need more of. Show More Summary

One Card Post - Jagr's Pearly Whites

What: 2011-12 Upper Deck #C179 - Jaromir Jagr Canvas Where: SportlotsHow Much?: $2.00Why?: After getting home from work at 2:30am mentally exhausted, I've been out of it all day today. Once again a one card post is all I can muster at the moment, so how about yet another recent addition to my small collection of cards featuring the great, ageless, Jaromir Jagr?

TTM autograph received: Ron Gant

Former MLB slugger Ron Gant signed my cards in about two weeks using the address of the TV station he works for in Georgia - though he returned several of the cards unsigned, I'm glad he was able sign the lone Angels card.

One Card Post - The Golden Jet

What: 2015-16 Upper Deck #C243 - Bobby Hull Canvas Where: eBayHow Much?: $8.00 (best offer)Why?: I've got a giant project at work starting this afternoon that's going to go well into the wee hours of Saturday morning at best, most of the weekend at worst. Show More Summary

St. Patrick's Day Soccer Cards!

I've been doing really well this year when it comes to more wisely using my hobby funds. We're nearing the end of March and I haven't picked up a single retail blaster, or even pack for that matter. Because of that though, I've been starting to get the itch to rip open some wax. Show More Summary

From One Small State to Another

I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel with respect to trade package posts. After today's post I have just three packages remaining, one of which I've already opened, two of which I've yet to. My sincere apologies if you've...Show More Summary

Mighty Oregon

Ducks on cards in blaster form. College Week continues. I know that there have been institution-specific sets for some of the bigger schools out there, but I never dreamed that Oregon would get the their own card set from a major manufacturer. Show More Summary

Hats-off - players wear caps on the field and batting helmets at the plate, so it maybe nice to see an occasional baseball card image of these players captured without headgear. 1996 Topps Stadium Club Cal Ripken #1 - Virtual Reality...Show More Summary
