    Jonathan Toews on a Chicago CTA ad (11"x17"ish) ; sent 2/10/17 and returned 4/19. Been wanting to send this to him since I snagged it off an el car six years ago! (Signed under "Cup")

    For what it's worth, USPS seems to be very responsive on Twitter. A couple of weeks ago, I had a question about an item I had mailed, so I tagged them in a tweet and they invited me to direct message...

    I LOVED the tour when I visited a few years ago. More importantly though, I was with five other people whose baseball fandom ranged from non-existent to lukewarm (they were just humoring me on a cold...

    I think I had just started to get into collecting when I sent away for the '93 Yoo-Hoo Baseball Legends (Limited Edition!) set. If only we could acquire all our cards simply by eating junk food!

    I already PMed Joey but just wanted to take a minute to say thanks again for running the contest!

    As a huge Yankees fan growing up in the 90s, I became a fan of El Duque immediately. He made his...

    I've gone through a few lulls over the course of my collecting, and at various times I've wondered "What could I get for this or that." One item that has never been part of that internal conversation...

    The January 1996 issue. I must have bought it at a card show at the mall, and I imagine it was at least a month or two old at that point. I remember being struck by the cool photo collage, especially...

    From when he had big sideburns?

    (Side note: coincidentally, the other post I just wrote was about a Yaz card!)

    I'm late to this thread, but I've been trying to figure out the whereabouts of one card for 12 years.

    In December 2001, I was a senior in high school and my childhood collecting days were winding...

    I'm happy to say I've kept most of my ticket stubs over the years. Glad I was a bit of a pack rat even as a kid - I know I still have a couple of AC Yankees stubs, one picturing up-and-coming first...

    I was part of what was, at the time, the world's largest Macarena at Yankee Stadium in 1996!

    At the Stadium in May 1999, I saw the first-ever MLB matchup of two Japanese-born pitchers, Hideki...

    I don't like the rule change, simply because it seems to me that catchers have always had the option to not place themselves directly in the path of the base runner. I understand that as a catcher,...

    Hi guys,

    Hopefully it's not a total faux pas to post one- and two-year-old successes; I'm just excited to be able to share this interest with others. I really have Topps Allen & Ginter to thank...

    I'm wondering what the etiquette is for posting addresses other than easily-found team addresses. I think it' s a bit tacky to post home and office addresses if no one is asking for them, but if...

    I've heard, um, mixed opinions on Malcolm Gladwell... but that's a compliment, right? Thanks!

    There you go then - everyone TTM Sal Bando! I sent him a 1980 Topps card that I had pulled from a Wal-Mart repack - his bold blue sig looks great with the Brewers home uni!

    Who was your biggest name you got ttm?

    I was lucky enough to get a return from Mariano Rivera during 2011 spring training.

    Of all the players I sent to that year, I probably least expected to get a return from Mo - hey, he's a busy...

    My absolute, hands-down, favorite player at the time - Vladimir Guerrero. In the summer of 1998, I gathered two cards (a '97 Zenith and '98 Donruss), decorated a white 8x10" envelope to make it look...

    Having lived with the luxury of the internet for over half my life, I'm not even sure how I found Baseline Cards; I guess an 11-year-old me did some research in the Poughkeepsie phone book.
