    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...

    Everything's gotten worse unless you pay for it. I remember reading about Hershey bars. When they came out they were like a square weighing 4 ounces for a nickel. Sizes bounced around for a while...

    These holders are expensive but I guess the cost of designing and mass-producing things like this is greater than I would suppose. I remember PSA for years dragged their feet to create holders to...

    Never saw those either. There's the 88 promos with the variations on placement of the hologram and such but never saw black borders. I may be misremembering, but I think there was a vague reference...

    :D It is a lot easier when they make a cutout in the shape of the patch.

    I mean, it's all subjective and maybe there is some tiny flaw they felt knocked it off Gem status. It's human nature to think there's some ulterior motive, or some sort of limit on gems per order,...

    Did ebay change feedback score?

    I just passed 21 years on ebay, and my primary account had been creeping up to 5000 FB. I don't pay it a lot of attention but recently noticed that I seem to have lost a couple hundred points. I'm...

    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...

    Given two options, I'd rather have a "meaningless" 10 than a 9.

    Saw the first box opened on twitter, PSA 9 Ryan Rolison. For comps, his 2019 Super sold for $81, and a red sold for $18.51. ...

    Over the decades there have been several different ways players were elected, and different standards as to what makes a player great. This has led to having a lot of guys in the Hall that by modern...

    Yeah, I am staying with the paper versions on this project. I haven't been watching strictly closely all year but I don't think the Platinum 1/1 has surfaced yet, so hopefully I have a shot at it. ...

    2019 Topps Parallels

    Thinking about trying to pull together a rainbow of 2019 Topps main set cards of my current favorite player, George Springer, and I'm wondering if there are any I'm missing from my checklist (haven't...

    Haven't looked at where bidding is, or if you can see it, but I'm thinking about throwing a little money at it. From the etopps to Topps Now and Living Set, the first run on these things always take...

    Never heard of that, though I've never been a big error guy. Could be interesting if the right guys had the error like Mussina or Bagwell.

    Just plain cards that are slightly SPd? Sounds like Heritage High Number. While the big names would be popular, they probably wouldn't be more than $5 unless the whole product was extremely short. ...

    Thrilled to pick this card up. I always liked Lee, even before he came to the Phils. He always seemed under the radar but all he did was pitch excellently and win. I have a few RCs but this is my...

    I don't think an official checklist or print run was ever put out. I know I've asked around several times. Here are a dozen different Grady Sizemores.

    That's true, that's how things go. Like that weird stat in one of the games the other day, pitchers with 12+ K and 0 BB in a playoff game. The only guy to ever do it was Tom Seaver 40 years ago,...

    $27,690 for a ball that represents a home run record that, one would suppose, is almost unbreakable? Even if the record is really narrow (rookie homers), I think it's actually a fair price for a...

    Anyone know what this is? Seems to be a plastic 1980 Topps with a purple border. Never saw one before, not sure what to make of it. Seller has several, all Phillies. Not going to bother asking...

    Yeah there seems to be something like 50 copies instead of 5 with weird distribution. Big thread on BO about it, someone got 5 Eloy flip stocks in a case of HHN or something like that.

    I love...
