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

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

One Card Post - I'm a Sucker

What: 2012 Leaf Memories - 1990 Buyback Silver #183 - Rob Murphy (#'d /20) Where: COMCHow Much?: $1.52Why?: 1990 Leaf was a pretty sweet set back when I was collecting as a kid. So much so that even though I know this foil stamped buyback from 2012 Leaf Memories is a total scam, I couldn't help myself. Show More Summary

Card Show Cards - Part 1
