    No, I couldn't tell who owns it or if it was being offered, just a thing that was going around. I'd like to get a copy, too, in an abstract sense, but I'm sure it'd be kind of pricey and anything...

    Accidentally Funny Cards

    With the millions of cards created throughout history, there have been some unintentionally humorous or shocking ones. Figured I'd start a thread to catalog them. Here's one I saw on Twitter the...

    Never. I went to one estate sale that advertised comic books in the listing along with all the other stuff. Figured maybe there was a stash. When I found them, it was about a dozen books, all...

    That's a great set. I strongly considered attempting it a couple times, but decided to just get the guys I wanted from different years.

    I remember seeing the Ty Cobb on ebay or somewhere when...

    I'd say somewhere in the $1500 range, give or take 15%. It would also depend on the subs and overall appearance. A 10/9.5/9.5/9.5 would be a lot better than a 9.5/9.5/9.5/9, especially if the 9 was...

    There was a hot dog vendor at the Ballpark in Arlington in the 90s, at least, when I went to games more regularly there. He was Arlington-famous for his very, very loud, and...

    I remember there was an article in Beckett back around 1999 or so, when they actually did a bit of hobby journalism, and they found a collector who had amassed a big chunk of the yellow previews,...

    Watching bits and pieces of the M's/Astros game yesterday, I heard them mention this. Given the point in the season, putting him on 60-day DL would make him unavailable for the playoffs, I think,...

    For just 1 year, 1999 was probably it. The number of sets released was building up drastically, which was a turn-off for some, but it just meant a lot more variety for me. BGS was taking off and...

    Holy crap that's cool. I'm a big Swatch fan from way back and would definitely wear these.

    Oh man, there's a Hulk Hogan one! Where's that 15% coupon when I need it?

    Yeah, conventional wisdom is SCG is fine for vintage, lots of pre-war cards have their slabs, or used to. I think a fair number of people converted to PSA, for the registry and bigger name and all...

    52 Bowman Mays, kind of not close.

    Is 1951 Bowman Mays an option? 1s are available for under $1K, but those currently on ebay are a little rough. 2s can be appealing if you double your budget...

    The Hrabrosky shows copyright 1998, and the Wynn 1999. Different fonts on the copyright line. Looks like two different sets at least.

    Aside from supers, reds are my favorite refractors. They usually pop nicely, and being usually #/5, they have that cachet of super-rarity and difficulty but not unobtainability. Five figures for a...

    She saved me three packs to open. First pack yielded the Stanton photo variation.

    She also bought a mini box of Finest and pulled a Walker Buehler blue ref auto. She’s on a roll.
