    Bill Simmons interview with Theo Epstein

    If you have the time (and the Spotify app), this Bill Simmons podcast with Theo Epstein is worth a listen. First thirty minutes is about NBA, which I skipped, last 80 minutes is Epstein. Roughly the first half of that is him getting into Red Sox and Cubs tenures, with a lot of minutia about...

    Therion's All Time Astros Autograph Collection (932 Reached!! 22 To Go!)

    I dig it, love to see the older signed cards along with your customs, which look fantastic.

    Topps going public. What does this mean for the hobby?

    They used to be public, before Eisner’s group took them private. I don’t think this changes much for the hobby, tbh.

    1985? Denver Broncos cups

    I will have to think about it, but I'm glad that someone is interested at least. If it wasn't clear from my post/photos, there are four cups, with two players on each, correlating from left to right in the two photos (i.e., Chavous is opposite Johnson, Wright is opposite Elway, etc)...

    1985? Denver Broncos cups

    Thanks, that’s very helpful. I did a completed eBay search and found nothing, so this is good to see. Yeah I agree that Elway is the biggest deal (obviously), and I was hoping to find out that this was an “RC” cup of some kind (if they were put out in ‘83 or ‘84, but 85 is my best guess)...

    1985? Denver Broncos cups

    I'm not a football guy, and I don't really post on any other message boards, so I thought I'd throw this here and see if anyone had any thoughts. I grew up in Colorado Springs, and I recently found these plastic cups in the back of my childhood closet. They are 7-Eleven Big Gulp cups, and each...

    Decent little pull from a 2020 Stadium Club blaster

    Wow, retail can be pretty hard to find these days, so when I saw two SC blasters at Walmart, I grabbed them. I do like the photography. The only pull of note was a Ken Griffey Jr. Blue variation, #28/50. I'm glad they have some retired greats in the set, and they chose a sweet photo of Junior...

    Crappy airbrushing in Topps series 1

    There's a bit of history with Topps airbrushing jerseys onto players after they have changed teams, and I actually tend to like the examples of this from the 80s (pretty common in the traded sets). But while opening a box of 2019 series 1 flagship, several cards jumped out at me as looking fake...
