    Player Collectors 1500+ Club

    It is funny to think that I spent years trying to get as many Canseco as possible, and here I am, still wild as ever about his cards, but now only have about 250 of them. I recently sold off all my base/base inserts. For me, less is more at this point, but to think I used to have over 5,000...

    How Baseball Cards Were Made in the 19th Century

    How Baseball Cards Were Made in the 19th Century

My brain will run statistical scenarios on current players to see how they may stack up against our heroes of...
