    PSA Graded M101-2 Shoeless Joe Jackson & Honus Wagner/Ty Cobb - Lost, then Won!

    I've gone from a one trick pony (Canseco) to a two trick pony (Canseco and dead guys) LOL!

    PSA Graded M101-2 Shoeless Joe Jackson & Honus Wagner/Ty Cobb - Lost, then Won!

    I couldn't pass it up! This is quite possibly my favorite Walter Johnson "card" made. The full body shot is perfect. The sepia tone, the background fading from sharp to blurred bottom to top ... everything is excellent. I had my hesitations because truth be told, I didn't know who the...

    PSA Graded M101-2 Shoeless Joe Jackson & Honus Wagner/Ty Cobb - Lost, then Won!

    There's no way around it. When you are going after something rare at auction you love, and you lose, it sucks. You can internalize it as "the one that got away". That's where our story begins. 1909-13 M101-2 Sporting News Supplements About a month or so back, I was browsing an auction house...

    My 19th Century Custom Quarantine Project!

    This shows you how each piece is not permanently encased. Each Round is sleeved, then affixed to a custom tray, with a lip at the top and bottom for a perfect fit. The top lip seals it off at the top so there isn't a gaping hole and it sits flush, without anything protruding. There is a little...

    My 19th Century Custom Quarantine Project!

    Here is what one would look like free floating in a plexiglass holder. The presentation leaves a lot to be desired. When they came in, I already had a prototype of a frame in hand, created by Jeremy Skinner - eBay user hardball34. If you need a holder created, seriously ... he is your guy...

    My 19th Century Custom Quarantine Project!

    My 19th Century Quarantine Project! First, I'll give it to you short and sweet. If you want to read the entire article, keep scrolling, but if you don't care about the labor pains and just want to see the baby, here you go! I was alerted to an Iowa find that unearthed an 1889 Goodwin A35 Round...

    Player Collectors 1500+ Club

    It is funny to think that I spent years trying to get as many Canseco as possible, and here I am, still wild as ever about his cards, but now only have about 250 of them. I recently sold off all my base/base inserts. For me, less is more at this point, but to think I used to have over 5,000...

    How Baseball Cards Were Made in the 19th Century

    I'm glad to hear you enjoy them, whatever they are called! They have morphed into something of their own over the years ... I guess just an online journal/diary of what I learn/do/etc. Thanks for reading! Thanks brother! Still cardboard crazy as always. FCB has gone through a nice little...

    How Baseball Cards Were Made in the 19th Century

    Thanks @Letch77 ! I can completely see where you are coming from. That was the cry of many that left after the junk wax era. They would say there were simply too many cards to collect. Many of us have come from an era where you could have it all ... Bowman, Donruss, Fleer, Score, Topps &...

    How Baseball Cards Were Made in the 19th Century

    ................ While many of the newer quirky cards shown above are fun, the base cards nowadays and back then look similar. However, there is a stark difference between how the cards are made now, and how they were made back in the 19th century . The process is called chromolithography...

    How Baseball Cards Were Made in the 19th Century

    I have loved the game of baseball (and cards!) since I was little. Nothing has captivated me quite like it. Well ... maybe when I first learned of dinosaurs. I guess that's why 19th century baseball - and its artifacts intrigue me so much. Each time I learn something from that time period, I...

    Trading Trout for Mantle - My Biggest Trade Yet!

    Last year, I was on a kick to discover various parts of the hobby, one of which included PSA graded rookies of the newer guys. On April 8th, 2019, I got in a card that I just couldn't get out of my head: A 2011 Topps Update Mike Trout Diamond Anniversary PSA 10. Like many, I have several "I wish...

    BIGGEST Mailday/Week Ever! Pre-War Collection Reboot

    If you are reading this anywhere near the time I have published this article, you may have a number of fears and concerns. The Coronavirus has certainly changed the world we live in - at least temporarily. As a baseball fan, one concern that afflicts you but maybe not anyone else around you is...
