    Yeah he's another. Thought things have come back down to earth a bit. Quick check on ebay, someone BINned a 2015 BC Orange Ref for $3000 in May, but in July the BGS 9.5 Super finished via auction...

    I don't know if it's because I've been watching a lot more baseball and dipping back into prospecting this year or this is just a fluke season for so many under the radar guys coming up and going on...

    I didn't get anything Phillies-related at the National, but I did take a couple pictures.

    First, this was the first time I've ever seen multiple Big 5 T206 cards at one show. I counted 2...

    I like them better than regular refractors. Very shiny, very twinkly. But yes, as the new kids with usually the same numbering as the flat colors, they're viewed with some derision. Sadly they...

    Popular topic at the National, apparently it got into the mainstream press and tons of civilians started buying it up, making this (hopefully temporarily) a $10-$40 card, parallels scaling up.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Stroman moved again, along with Thor and anyone else they can get what they deem to be value for.

    Astros fans are talking about/wishing for Tucker for...

    Here's a question I never thought I'd have to ask. Does anyone have tips on traveling with significant amounts of cash? I don't want to brag but my wife and I are going to be bringing literally...

    That's pretty neat. I pulled a 1987 Topps Rose from 2017 Topps, a foil stamped "Rediscover Topps" buyback. I found that very ironic that they could put cards into new packs as long as they were old...

    Some guys don't like to sign, especially in the volumes that card companies want. They'd just rather be doing something else, and don't care about the money. Some want too much money. Some have...

    I'm flying in from Austin, very excited to go for the first time. Six hours is not too much for me if I was in that range, but I'd stay overnight. What everyone says is it's too much to see in one...

    The dad is a piece of work. Running through his life without a care for anyone else with his ridiculous alibi. I've known several people who were in the Holocaust and their children, and I never...

    Yep, very exciting as my wife has nearly every Astros game on TV. And he's keeping his average and slugging up, not an all-or-nothing musclehead. I'll be looking for his stuff at the National, will...

    Winthorpe is a good one, but kind of obscure these days. And Valentine is too much of a baseball name for people to get, I think. Not that that's a big deal, since this is mainly for me, but just...

    A couple years ago I saw a guy wearing an Orioles jersey with "Barksdale" on the back. I've been thinking about that a long time, just about the coolest custom jersey ever. Now I want a jersey with...

    After this thread was bumped, I started looking for them on ebay. Was close to buying sets, but the seller I was going to use was offline. Now a week later I realize I hadn't even thought about...

    I watched the whole game, sorting cards, talking with the wife, playing with the dogs, doing stuff on ipad, and it was over before I knew it. Even though the official time was 2:48, it went so fast....

    I'm sure there's a SABR article about it somewhere. Or at least there should be. I'd imagine someone could find newspaper accounts of all 6 of his home homers and see what the source might be. A...

    TIL

    Fenway Park's right field foul pole is called The Pesky Pole or Pesky's Pole, which came about because, as I always read, low-power mid-century shortstop Johnny Pesky had a talent for hitting balls...

    FOMO is and always has been real, even before there was an acronym for it. An unheralded callup for a major team like the Dodgers is going to garner interest, especially for a guy with little...

    I checked around to see if he ever hit right but couldn't find any evidence. I agree the face looks more like Mazara than Andrus. Andrus doesn't ever seem to have a really well-filled-in soul patch...
