    And even then, Cox didn't go in as a player. So you could be more technically correct to say Jeter is the only one. Even more technically correct if you say it's zero because his Topps, Bowman, and...

    I really didn't see Walker's election coming. I thought he'd come close but fall short. I was even looking at PSA 10 RCs on ebay yesterday, thinking I should go ahead and buy one just because. ...

    I think Jeter is the only one to get in, and he'll have 97%+. I had been thinking he'd get 100%, but I now feel a few guys out there will say no.

    Bonds, Clemens, and Schilling will continue to...

    Could standard card size change?

    Aside from cabinet cards, baseball and other collectible cards were small pretty much throughout the whole history of the hobby. Old Judge, Allen & Ginters, Mayo Cut Plug, T cards, W cards, and so...

    One small bump in fabric in a photo taken in mid-stride is evidence of a buzzer? What does this "buzzer" look like? There's significantly suspect stuff about Altuve's behavior, but that's not it.

    The explanation suggested by the seller seems perfectly plausible. His reaction might seem defensive, but ebay's been overrun by a-holes the last few years who want price cuts or partial refunds for...

    My ebay bucks let me get a full 2014 Topps Heritage set with SPs and insert sets for about $1.05. Same seller had the 25-card Action set, with the surprisingly expensive Trout and Jeter cards, for...

    That's disappointing. I'm not a Yankee hater, though it does get tiresome, but I really wanted him to go to the Angels if anywhere other than the Phillies. Anything to get Trout to the World Series.

    I accomplished #1, up to 92/120, including a Koufax, who was the biggest name I was lacking. Waiting for a Gwynn or Chipper is going to be tough.

    We did #5, spending 3 days at the National and...

    At $15,000, that's getting closer to the realm of the believable compared to $100K when originally listed. Here's a thread about it.

    I'd put that down to the votes in 1994 having a much different view of catchers than today. Not exactly "sudden" but the product of evolving understanding of the game rather than gut feelings and...

    I've got mixed feelings on Dynasty. The marketing materials from the original set were overblown and when we found out that "limited to 10 copies" was true but "we might have 6 different cards of a...

    Didn't know that. I always thought Topps introduced the boxed set high series just because of Fernandomania. It's surprising Righetti wasn't in that set, especially considering he had a one-game...

    Recently got a Grady Sizemore game-used BP jersey. It has the MLB hologram so I know it was used both in Spring Training and I'd presume before the game on Opening Day 2015. It's pretty clean and...

    Did ebay change feedback score?

    Nah, neither of these are even close to real. Aside from the non-206 like printing quality, how can a card get so beat up and still have such square corners? Completely inauthentic wear. You can...
