    Puig, Kemp, Wood to the Reds for Homer Bailey, prospects

    https://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/reports-dodgers-reds-swing-blockbuster-trade-involving-puig-kemp/ Bob Nightengale: The Dodgers will receive Homer Bailey, pitcher Josiah Gray and infielder Jeter Downs. Perhaps this move is the precursor to a Bryce Harper signing?

    Do "White Whales" travel in pods? (12-11-18 update)

    Some of you guys might remember that I'm a player collector, too. Brett Butler is one of my favorite modern players, and somehow I got on this quest to collect every card any company has ever issued of him. Beckett has 534 unique Butler cards catalogued - I've got 521 of them, plus several...

    Vintage Pick Up Thread

    It's been quite some time since I posted here, so I thought I'd post some recent pickups. I had a fantastic time in Cleveland. Picked up a lot of great stuff. Hit many sets, finished off several 70's basketball Trail Blazers sets, finished an OPC Dodger team set, plus many others. I also...

    WTB Project for a friend: looking for 2002 Upper Deck Prospect Premieres #18 Derick Grigsby

    A friend reached out to me a short time ago and asked if I could ask around to see if anyone could help him locate some copies of the card in the title before he resorted to paying $5 apiece for cards on eBay. If anyone happens to have any of them, please let me know. His son has a friend who...

    Question/discussion for advanced player collectors: how do you search eBay?

    This has been an ongoing "problem" for me for quite some time now, and i'm not sure whether it's just one more sign of being a middle-aged collector, or that I'm burned out and maybe need to think about retiring my Butler collection. It wasn't that long ago, maybe two years ago or so, that I...

    1989 Upper Deck sample/blank back help needed

    Hopefully there's at least one expert in these things here. For many years I've had the card on the left, which has a stamp on the back that reads SAMPLE NOT FOR RESALE. I have also been searching for a blank back, which I have seen examples of in other player collections. One showed up on...

    Why I love the Dodgers

    I love baseball. I've loved baseball my whole life, and in particular I love the Los Angeles Dodgers. I've been living in Giants territory for most of my life. I'm often asked, "why do you root for the Dodgers?" A good response would be this: because I hate the Giants! But, really - why...

    Former Mets GM Steve Phillips has bold idea to speed up games - NY Daily News Long story short, he proposes a rule change that would speed games up and save wear and tear on young pitchers and assorted million dollar arms, while catering to the gnat-like attention span that millennials seem to...

    2016 Allen and Ginter checklist is out

    2016 Allen and Ginter checklist I see some Dodgers autos I definitely like to pick up, but I'm going to assume the prices will be crazy: Fernando Valenzuela, Frankie Montas and Corey Seager. Maeda's there, too, and so is no-longer-a-Dodger Zach Lee.
