Pack Rip - 2015 Donruss Soccer

Nothing kills blog readership quite like a nice soccer card post, but I feel inspired due to the fact that my favorite Premier League team, Liverpool, currently sits atop the table 11 games into the season here. Let's do this... This is the second pack of 2015 Donruss soccer from the hobby box I picked up earlier this year. Show More Summary

Signature Sundays - Reggie Jackson & a Bonus Card

Meant to post this one last Sunday, as it was still October, plus the World Series was ongoing. The flu got the best of me though and I was offline for a couple days. Oh well, better late than never... I've been enamored with the 1995 Upper Deck baseball and hockey releases since I first laid eyes on them as a 12-year-old. Show More Summary

Buyback Franken-set: Davey Lopes Leads Off a Dodger-Heavy Post

I was hopeful that I'd be able to attend the very large, twice-a-year card show that's occurring about an hour north of me this weekend, but to use a terrible pun it looks like it's not in the cards. I was most excited at the opportunity...Show More Summary

2016 Bowman Albert Pujols oversize card

I was able to pick up four different 25h anniversary Arizona Fall League 5x7 cards at a couple of AFL games I attended - the cards were handed out in pairs, with an Andrew McCutchen card to go with the Pujols. The other cards I got were...Show More Summary

Good Luck Ducks, Week 10: Business

Two unranked teams just doing some business on the field. The Ducks may just have a quarterback on their hands. A week after throwing a record tying 6 touchdowns, Justin Herbert tied another school record with his 489 passing yards last week as Oregon finally got back in the win column by outgunning the Arizona State Sun Devils.

Mo' Hoops

Time to quit while I'm ahead. I went back to the well and ordered up a second blaster of 2016-17 NBA Hoops, and was shocked to pull a Will Barton patch card from the days where he played for my beloved Blazers. Shocked, I tell ya! Barton...Show More Summary

Newest Angels pick up - Cameron Maybin

The Angels traded minor leaguer Victor Alcantara for the veteran outfielder who has played in the big leagues for parts of 10 seasons - I still have a couple of certified autograph cards squirreled away from when Maybin was regarded as a top prospect with the Detroit Tigers. Show More Summary

A PWE from a Blogger on Hiatus

Recently my good buddy Mark Kaz over at This Way to the Clubhouse decided to say goodbye to the sports card blogging world, at least for a little while. I prefer to think of it as a "hiatus" rather than a permanent goodbye, and am still hopeful that he'll make a return someday. Show More Summary

Not Shocked

The Cubs winning the World Series was one of the least surprising things to happen in baseball this year. 107 years of past futility has very little to do with how this year's Chicago Cubs team took home the trophy. Was there ever aShow More Summary

Buyback Franken-set: A Beat-up '58 & Nine Companions

The past couple of buyback franken-set posts have featured cards graciously donated to me by others, but today we get back to some I picked up myself. Let's grab another ten cards from the recent large lot I picked up and see how they do... Show More Summary

The Beginning...

Today I've got a special post to share with you, one that is long overdue. In fact, looking back on it, this probably should have been the very first post on my blog all the way back at the beginning of 2008. It's the story of how IShow More Summary

Buyback Franken-set: Angus Delivers!

Been under the weather for the past couple of days here, out of work and laid up sick on the couch. Let's see if I can start to get back in the saddle here with a quick post to say thanks to my friend Angus of Dawg Day Cards. I was surprised...Show More Summary

One Card Post - Liverpool Threads

Good Luck Ducks, Week 9: Win the Day

One game at a time. The Oregon Ducks are broken now, perhaps irreparably so. Last week's 2OT loss saw the Ducks come all the way back from a 20 point 3rd quarter deficit only to stumble in the second overtime period when they just needed a field goal, minimally, to keep the game going.

Vintage find - 1971 Topps Chris Short #511

On a whim, I rummaged through a dollar box of vintage cards at the card shop - it's not like the box on the counter is new and the remaining vintage beaters of common players stored in the box are just uninteresting to me. However, I...Show More Summary

Holy '59s!

Recently I hooked up with Shane, who writes over at Off the Wall, for our very first trade. Hmm...a Shane who lives in New England, is a Red Sox fan, and collects baseball cards...sounds like a great guy to me! If there was any doubt about that fact though, I'd say the package he sent along puts it to rest. Show More Summary

Ticking Boxes

This is called maintenance mode. With the weather deciding to be crummy and a lot of things just procrastinated away when I feel like doing things like going outside, it was probably a good time to get back into sorting through all my...Show More Summary

One Card Post - World Series Winner

What: 2014 Bowman Chrome #209 - Corey Kluber (Bubbles Refractor #'d /99)Where: COMCHow Much?: $1.73Why?: Got home much later than planned from work tonight, so I need some more time to work on the mega trade package I received this week from Shane at Off the Wall. Show More Summary

Buyback Franken-set: Another Shane Contributes!

Yesterday I received a whopper of a trade package from Shane at Off the Wall. So large, in fact, that it's probably going to take me a few days to get everything scanned and sorted out. While I work away at that though, there was one...Show More Summary
