    Youngest is youngest, but number of games is a valid way to say "fastest." If you are a prospect in high school, you might get drafted or you might get a free ride to Stanford. I think a lot of...

    Bryce Harper's broken bat homer the other day comes to mind. Imagine shearing the guy off at the knuckles but he still manages to put it out, and that being the only hit.

    I've pared down my whole library considerably since getting married. I used to have about 2000 books, now down to under 500, more going to Half-price soon. Just looking around, I found I didn't...

    The Harper you link to is 10/10/10/8.5, with a final grade of 9.5, one point above the lowest sub, which is in line with what I'm talking about, so I'm not sure what you're getting at there. If the...

    It's not a straight average, as you may have guessed. I think there is some sort of weighting, although I don't know if it's specific to a particular sub. They might sort the subs lowest to highest...

    Need to animate that somehow. I used to have a little program called Animagic that would create animated gifs if you gave it all the individual frames. There's probably a lot smoother tools out...

    It's amazing how hard it is to find even lesser-demand, mass-produced sets from that era. I can check my LCSes but I'm doubtful.

    They usually have one on the 28th at the end of the quarter, but yeah, I thought with the 15-25% deals lately they'd skip this. Glad for it, I got a couple things ending tomorrow.

    It would be easier if they just used their proper name,"Counterfeits."

    I don't pay attention to things in that detail, but I assume the agent does. Would he make more in annual arbitration until he reaches full free agency? Do they think there will be big changes in...

    Aside from the 2005 Donruss Diamond Kings redemption program where they gave them out in complete sets, I don't think I have more than 2 plates of any one card.

    I'd add 1990 Topps blackless from the Frank Thomas sheet. I, for one, would find it interesting to assemble that "set."

    They're great until the server goes offline or the brand stops being supported or your account gets hacked and all your cards stolen or you try to sell them and find out no one cares about them.

    A lot of people like him. He's got the pedigree as a 1st rounder from Vandy, and has done well as a pro, going from A ball to the majors last year. There's a lot to like but...pitchers, man. He...
