    Blaster and some packs of 2019 Bowman

    I grabbed a blaster and three packages that each come with 2 packs of bowman and a pack of five camo parallels. I got 15 camos of course, and like 30 chrome cards, not gonna list those but lmk if you want details, are building a set or whatever. Refractors: Nolan Gorman 455/499 Keston Hiura...

    Crappy airbrushing in Topps series 1

    There's a bit of history with Topps airbrushing jerseys onto players after they have changed teams, and I actually tend to like the examples of this from the 80s (pretty common in the traded sets). But while opening a box of 2019 series 1 flagship, several cards jumped out at me as looking fake...

    How about a 100k Nolan Arenado thread?

    Whatever happened to Wheeler Collection?

    I'm not sure what made this pop into my head, but a few years ago marked the release of an intriguing product called Wheeler Collection Heroes & Legends. You may remember that some people bagged on it because of the bird cards and other various aspects - as well as the notion that the whole...

    WTTF anyone got a Harold Baines auto FT/FS?

    Baines' HOF election caught me by surprise for sure. I will likely wait for the bump to subside before purchasing one, but I thought I would throw it out here and see if anyone has one available. Send me a PM if so, I don't come onto the BST board very often.

    Is it 2007?

    Because it's starting to feel like that in Colorado. These Rockies are playing crazy well right now, with different guys stepping up to win games each night. Hopefully they aren't peaking too soon. And can Kyle Freeland get some Cy Young love? I don't expect him to win it or anything, but the...

    2018 Bowman Platinum Walmart hobby box

    I guess these are called "Hobby Box" even though they are bought at a retail outlet? They had just put out a display, full of packs blasters, and two of these big bad boys. I grabbed a blaster first because, 80 bucks a pop for two guaranteed autos (guaranteed to be of prospects I've never heard...

    Junk wax packs at the "antique" mall

    Look at this little trove I stumbled upon at the "antique mall" (which, I'm sure most of you know, is a synonym of "indoor flea market"). It piqued my interest for sure, and I found myself all a-tingle at the thought of time traveling 25-30 years into the past. The little "$2.75 each" sign...

    Topps Chrome blaster

    Got the last blaster at Wally, will grab any more I see because these are nice cards and a fun break (but, cmon, "fun break" is a redundancy, amiright?). Future Stars Francisco Lindor - um, I was under the impression he was a present star? 87 Topps Correa Arenado Then and Now Arenado...

    A few packs of Bowman Platinum

    I went to Walmart a few weeks ago and saw the full Platinum display (packs/blasters/big boxes) at Walmart. I was curious but passed it up. A couple of days later I saw what the cards and these boxes were going for and went back to grab some, but it was all gone. That's what I joined the group...

    WTTF Young Rockies cards wanted

    The Rockies have been playing well and I've found myself looking for cards of some of the young guys on the team, particularly the pitchers. Kyle Freeland was in 2014 Draft and Senzatela was in 2015 Chrome, for example, and Jon Gray has been in everything. If anybody has some cards form the last...

    Trip to Walmart = blasters (Heritage HN & Archives 65th)

    It's hard to walk by the card section at Walmart. If I were rational, I'd save my money from these purchases and buy a hobby box. But very little about this hobby is rational, after all. Heritage High Number = a few SPs and a Verlander jersey card Archives 65th = autograph of Scott Hatteberg...

    Topps Archives 65th Anniversary x 4

    My brother-in-law is FDNY and will be on duty tonight and tomorrow, so we bumped Christmas up a day and opened our gifts this morning. Santa brought me four boxes of the 65th anniversary Topps Archives boxes from Walmart, which made me feel like a kid again. Autographs: Jeff Conine Jose Cruz...

    LIVE BREAK: 2011 Bowman Draft

    A few months ago I posted a live break of 2011 Bowman, erroneously listing it as Draft, so I decided to go ahead and get a box of Draft. I bust these live, posting pack by pack, just because it slows me down and makes me take better notice of what I pull. First pack in a few minutes. RECAP -...

    Mike Trout 1/1!!!!!!

    His first motor vehicle, signed on the glove box, is up for auction. I'm not sure what to make of it, really. Gets you quite a bit closer to him than a little swatch of white polyester, no? https://goldinauctions.com/Mike_Trout_s_2000_Ford_Ranger_Black_Pickup_Truck_w-LOT23338.aspx

    Hall of Fame changes Veteran's Committee rules (again, and thankfully)

    I have long argued that Bonds, Clemens, etc. will get into the HOF someday, probably by eventual committee. This is something I have always called the "PED Era Committee" in anticipation, but knew the Hall itself would never actually call it that. "Today's Game Committee" is a nice euphemism...

    Tyler Anderson debut

    2011 first round pick for the Rockies, left Tyler Anderson makes his MLB debut this afternoon at Coors Field against the Padres. I don't normally post about these things, and I doubt there is much (if any) prospecting love for a Rockies pitcher, but I'm excited. The Rox starting pitching has...
