    I think you get out when it's not fun, and you don't think it will be. There are any number of ways to collect, or otherwise participate in the hobby. It's not necessary for any of them to appeal...

    Got this one. I'm actually at -$5 Bucks because the $50 item I bought on one of the 10% days was refunded after the new year. So I gotta buy something just to break even.

    Love this set each time you post it. Wish I could duplicate it but that seems unlikely.

    How to tell if you should is a simple math question. BGS's cheapest option these days for a single card is $20. I don't see anything on the main price page but they used to charge an additional $2...

    Pretty much same as the last few years

    1) Keep adding to my vintage sets, 1941 Play Ball and 1971 Topps Greatest Moments
    2) Keep adding to my 2011 Marquee Museum set (possibly hit 75% this year)...

    "Have a catch" sounds wrong somehow, and I agree vaguely British. Like in a pub someone might say,"Let's have a sing" when they want everyone to sing a song.

    The one thing I'd wish is that they'd bring the wildcard back. I'm building a set and it's gotten progressively harder to find cards from the set with all the other stuff Topps has put out that...

    1975 Topps PSA 8+ set, 1955 Bowman VG set, 2005 Origins Old Judge Gold set (thought still missing Chris Burke), 2016 Flawless Team USA (only 15 cards but the checklist is pretty sweet), and the 2001...

    Poll turned out pretty much as I expected, with 75 and 71 being the clear favorites, even given a small number of voters. Major surprise is that 74 ended up in third place. TBH, it's my least...

    I looked at the top 100 current players by WAR and they all have at least one pack-issued, MLB-licensed brand auto. Some haven't signed in five years or more (Werth, Choo, Escobar), at least looking...

    Poll: Favorite Topps Design of the 70s

    Just curious what people think. Please comment on your choice if you wish, but base/main/flagship sets only. We all know the real winner is 1971 Greatest Moments.

    I almost always leave cards in their original factory condition. It it's part of a set I really care about, like a 2011 Museum, I'll take it out to put in the same type of holder as all the others. ...

    Yeah, I don't get it, either. With products like this, only 1/1s of the very top players are worth the box they came in, but they can be worth several boxes. If you hit a Jeter/Trout/Harper 1/1,...

    Brooks Robinson's Batting Helmet

    This has always bugged me. In the 1975 Topps set, we see Brooks Robinson at the plate. I always noticed how ridiculously short the bill of the helmet was, but it didn't really occur to me...

    Still an effective hitter, I'm surprised at his totals. 2725 hits, 435 homers, 1587 RBI. But yeah, he was fairly anemic this year, and there's no better time to leave if you're gonna leave. I...
