    I'd be happy to give a good home to any Pirates cards if nobody else has claimed them. Thanks!

    I was in a fairly similar spot when Jack Wilson was traded from the Pirates. There had been talk of trading him at the deadline in the two previous seasons, so I had some time to wrestle with...

    I was wondering why I didn't know about this set as I was reading through the thread. Checked the Beckett checklist, and they managed to omit every single Pirate. Oh well, just one more thing I...

    Do those who are crying foul over making a lower offer on such an inexpensive card even familiar with COMC? Many of the sellers on the site have auto accept set at a set percentage. Those who opt...

    I think a lot of it comes down to understanding the collector base in that specific area, and setting up accordingly. I have found that some areas have large populations of set collectors, and I can...

    I'm less bothered by the design than I am by the fact that it looks like they applied photoshop filters to the photo on every single base card. To me the thing that always made base cards enjoyable...

    When I moved away from Pittsburgh in 2010, there was at least one just about every month somewhere in the area, often more. This past year there were I think something like 5 shows total, and 3 of...

    I don't have any issue with large dealers like Burbank pricing super rare cards well above market (read: auction) value. I probably won't pay their prices because my player collection needs are few...

    Is their inventory impressive? Definitely. But I think the rise of COMC (and subsequent plateauing, but let's ignore that) has definitely taken away some of Burbank's business. I've purchased...

    Burbank Pricing

    Did anyone else notice a big jump in prices in their ebay store? I prefer not to deal with them, but I saw a couple cards that weren't terribly overpriced (around 30% above market value) I was...

    Cutch is by far the most exciting all around player I've had the opportunity to watch on a regular basis. I'd compare his bat speed to Gary Sheffield, he plays a premium defensive position (though...

    The Blank Back OPC's are real, and a real pain. At release they were listed as /50. I saw one copy of the Jack Wilson on ebay right around when the product released, that went for like $5, but...

    I don't remember when plates were first inserted in packs, but I don't think the logic was ever that the cards "couldn't be printed again." Plates are basically just remnants of the printing...

    1) Reach 13,000 unique Pirates cards. Closing in on 13,500 after once I get my latest COMC shipment.
    2) Add 500 new autos Only added 300, but it was quality over quantity
    3) Get organized! ...

    I didn't even realize Zach was still in the league (I can't stand watching the Brewers, even when they play the Pirates). How is this the same guy that looked like he was throwing batting practice...

    He was a blast to watch, but I can't say I'll miss him at this price. Russ had an exceptionally high BABIP this year, which definitely helped his offensive numbers and probably won't be sustainable...

    I find the majority of the products that come out to be redundant and unappealing. While I'll pick up one or two Andrew Lambo autos for my Pirates collection, but I don't need or want ten different...

    I love going through low end boxes, since there are almost always Pirates I don't have to be found.

    A few years ago I found a '59 Clemente for a quarter. It wasn't in great shape, but the...

    Need Help ID'ing a Card

    I pulled these two cards out of a dime box at a show a few months back, and am completely stumped on what set they're from.

    I agree with what others have said. I just don't see being a true "completist" player collector as being as feasible today as it was even 5-7 years ago. I'm a huge fan of McCutchen, and started a...

    I don't go out of my way to pick up doubles, and usually try to find a good home for any I do end up with. It just seems silly for me to hold onto multiple copies of a card when I'm sure other...

    Sounds like it might be easier for you and dp33 to work out a larger deal, which is fine by me. I think I only came across one or two Brewers refs, so no worries.
