    Wasn't there a site or some ebay page where you could see historical purchase data on your account? I don't think it went back all the way, maybe 5-10 years, but more than the My Ebay page shows.

    Baseball players are all kinds of people. It seems common courtesy that players will sign for other players even if they ignore fans, but there are definitely people who just won't for anyone. But...

    There is film of it. He waved his hand at the Cubs dugout. He didn't stand and point to centerfield, although the legend of it started very soon after the game.

    My dad and I ran a website hosting and design company. He had taken a contract in Memphis and I was at home asleep. He called me about 8 in the morning, waking me up. I remember a moment of dread...

    It's been a season of extremes. Looking at the standings for the first time in a while, I can't remember the last time I saw 4 divisions where the first place team was ahead by 10 games or more,...

    I've never seen one at auction, but I know I'd go $200 at least. Maybe a lot more if a couple determined collectors fought over it.

    These never made it here, or were scooped up immediately. But now I have to go look.

    As a baseball collector, I can't remember the last time I did an actual trade in person. This is mostly because I don't know any card collectors except my fiancee, and she just takes what she wants...

    Congratulations. I think this is one of the more remarkable achievements in collecting this year. Think about how hard it is to assemble a set of printing plates. Then add a 5th one. Then...

    Yes, but my point is the "one against the field" approach is a narrow route to answer to a broad question and can lead to unexpected results. If the question is "who was a better home run hitter,...

    I kind of don't agree with the premise of using only league-leading one stat with greatness so directly. As an example, who was the better home run hitter, Hank Aaron or Ralph Kiner? Hank Aaron...

    Then when you have players called up and they have cards the same year, or even later the same year if you want to be a stickler about debut dates, they STILL aren't considered rookie cards until the...

    Incorrect. Rookie cards are the first year a player appears in a major league set, the same way it's always been.

    In general, buying boxes on ebay is risky because they might be searched. Or supposedly people will buy a case of cards and rip until they find the case hit, then sell the rest of the "dead" boxes. ...

    I hate this debate. It's just way simpler to do things the way they were done in the first 100 years of the hobby so you don't have all these artificial rules and loopholes. Rhys Hoskins's RCs were...

    If Judge was to have a season-ending injury today, it would be a much different scenario than if he played the full season but maintained his post-break pace. Since July 14, he is hitting .169 with...

    Judge is still ROY. It's tough luck on timing for some of these call-ups, like Frank Thomas in 1990.

    I'd be interested. I'm high on him right now, and enjoying it, and thinking about the future. Rough times are inevitable in any career, but I just keep thinking,"He's only 20."

    I've never even heard of those. Is that the 1-per-pack parallel, or the rookie insert? They must be super rare, I can't find anything on google.

    The attitude since at least the late 80s with Schmidt and Reggie seemed to be that going 1-4 with 3 Ks and a home run is a slugger doing his job. Going 2-4 with 2 singles is not his job. It's...

    I always wondered what that card would have sold for if he didn't look like a chubby sad sack. I've never seen another picture of him looking like that.
