    Gorgeous Gwynn! That’s one of my favorite sets. Deadman31, what’s that ‘91 Donruss sheet with the unique Griffey photo? Is it a preproduction sample?

    Seattle area sports card shops (1990's and beyond)

    Wow, I wish I kept business cards of all of the card shops I went to. That’s cool. I can’t even remember a lot of the names of the shops I liked back then. I grew up in a North Dallas suburb as a kid/teenager in the golden era of baseball card shops in the ‘80s and early ‘90s. There were three...

    What do you do with base cards?

    I love base cards. If you’re a baseball fan, how can you not love looking at the pictures and reading the backs? I’m a set collector too, so all cards have the same fun value to me, regardless of what they’re worth. It’s weird to me that people buy boxes and cast aside the base cards without...

    Video of Pat Neshek's autograph collection.

    Cool video showing how pitcher Pat Neshek collects autographs. Yeah, the video is sponsored by eBay, but it's still good. Wish it was longer though.

    Mookie and the Dodgers...

    Another terrible contract for a team with too much money. 13 years is insane. He'll be 40 when it's over. He's an elite fielder and runner, but those skills will diminish significantly 5+ years before the contract ends. Betts is a great player, but inconsistent. One year he hits .346, the...

    Shoeless Joe Jackson is now eligible for the Hall of Fame. Pete Rose will be after he dies.

    A new rule means Shoeless Joe Jackson could be on the Hall of Fame's Early Baseball ballot this December. Pete Rose would also be eligible after he dies. ESPN -- Major League Baseball has shifted its view of deceased players who have been banned for life, a group that includes "Shoeless" Joe...

    10 Hall of Fame Modern Era candidates announced.

    With Harold Baines being elected last election, it's impossible to predict who will make it this time. Each of the ten candidates is more deserving than Baines in my opinion. ESPN -- A 10-man ballot of candidates who will be eligible for selection to the Baseball Hall of Fame this year though...
