All the Ex's on Cards

Players change teams, but sports cards are forever. Postage fees are getting out of control to send stuff out of the country, but Sportscards From The Dollar Store always makes sending stuff to Canada worthwhile. Of the cards I picked...Show More Summary

Card Show Cards - Part 1

Last weekend I was able to hit up the semi-frequent card show that takes place at a Holiday Inn about half an hour from where I live. My haul wasn't exactly epic, as I spent only about $25-$30 on myself, and about the same amount onShow More Summary

Stickers, Scratch-Offs & More - A Package from Tony

I could go on about how work and my personal life prevented me from doing much of anything when it came to sports cards this past week, but you didn't come here to read a bunch of complaints. You came to see cards! On this beautifulShow More Summary

TTM autograph received: Don Mossi

I sent a 1960 Topps card to Mossi to be autographed - it came back in about a month signed in blue ink around his neck and really through the darkest part of the card. I think the scan ended up a little lighter than what the card actually...Show More Summary

A Canadian and a Gentleman

Treasures of the North. It's not every day that someone contacts me about a low level minor league team set from 1988, but I'd be a fool to send that email straight to the trash, right? The Cardinals had a short season class A team in...Show More Summary

Airbrushed Fridays: Farewell to Photoshop

Making Their Mark, indeed. My fatigue with Topps and their flagship product is spilling over into my long-running "Airbrushed Fridays" series, which I'm effectively ending with this post. I introduced Photoshopped cards into the series long ago because it was kind of fun to look at how photos are doctored on modern cards in modern times. Show More Summary
