    Best pull I've ever pulled

    I don't often open packs anymore, after 2 decades of not pulling anything nice. Recently though, maybe because of being home for a month or otherwise, I've started taking part in a couple of breaks. Figure it's a low-cost way to engage in a break, and the results are the same since I don't...

    Cool Negro League/Barnstorming pickup

    Hope everyone is doing okay with all the craziness going on. Until the mid-50's or so, barnstorming was a pretty common occurence for MLB ballplayers. At that time, players weren't paid enough during the season to just do nothing during the off-season, so they were looking for something...

    Arenado question

    Edit: Figured it out. The lineup and opponent match up perfectly to who they played in 2011 on this date. Have 2 different games of these and they both show 2010 but match up with 2011. Funny that they didn't realize. It is hard to tell from the picture but is says "April 9, 2010." The...

    FS Lineup cards available at very reasonable prices

    Hey all, I recently picked up over 1,000 lineup cards from legendary Dodgers manager and Hall-of-Famer Tommy Lasorda from 1989-1996. Due to the sheer volume, I am willing to move them for very reasonable prices. For basic Dodgers lineup cards I am looking for $25 for a copy signed by Lasorda...

    Collection Centerpiece Acquired

    As some of you may know, the primary focus of my collection (ok, one of two primary focuses, along with lineup cards) is baseball's integration, and its central figures. Some of the major figures are Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe. Jackie obviously broke the color barrier...

    Question about 2004 Bowman Chrome

    Over the years of collecting I've seen my share of cards that were a bit small, and might have been suspect for trimming. One of the things I've noticed is that (unlike any other set), a pretty significant percentage of the 2004 Bowman Chrome card I have had was a drop small. Back when I was...

    Will Mauer be the first player with a Rookie Auto to make the Hall of Fame?

    With Mauer's retirement, I was wondering whether he might be the first player with a rookie autograph to make the Hall of Fame? If I had to guess, the first player who had an insert autographed card in their rookie season to make the Hall will be Roy Halladay (1997 Bowman Auto), and depending...

    Mystery Solved! 1955 Yankees US Tour lineup card

    Hey all, super pumped to finally get a vintage Yankees lineup card from the Stengel era. Doesn’t have Mantle in the lineup but features Berra and is from the heart of the Yankees dynasty. Here’s the issue though - the lineup shown doesn’t match any game from 1955 or 1956. This leads me to...

    What is the appropriate feedback in this situation

    I recently bought a 2010 Chris Sale BC Gold Ref BGS 9.5. It cost $1000+ so definitely not a cheap piece. When I got the card in the mail I was really surprised to see the BGS case completely beaten up as the pictures below show. I went back to the listing and these were the pictures in...

    Not sure what compelled me to go for this, but picked up a few interesting items tied to Juan Soto's 6/29/2018 2-homerun game. In that game he had 4 hits and 5 RBI and became the 4th teenager ever to have multiple 2 homeruns game before age 20. Items are all from the 6/29/2018 game Game-Used...

    Anyone knowledgeable about Japanese baseball (particularly vintage)

    I picked up a lot of signed pictures from the 1931 US Tour of Japan. Most had American players (Grove, Simmons etc) but a few were signed by Japanese players including a number of players in the Japanese HOF. I know in the US market, HOF autographs are a very popular category to collect...

    Just found a pretty cool lineup card in my collection - Any Blue Jays fans?

    Hey, Over the years I have picked up hundreds of lineup cards. I've been fortunate to be able to pick up a few collections that came from managers or umpires, and when picking up 100+ at a time, it's not always obvious which ones are important. Looking through some lineup cards tonight I...

    Justin Upton

    Just took a look at Justin Upton's stats and had a few thoughts: 1) Anything think Upton could be the next Adrian Beltre? Top prospect who started at a really young age, that was somewhat underwhelming for years and then put it together. Upton is just 30 but already has 1,488 hits and 260...

    What boxes would you want to open for nostalgia?

    Over the last couple of years I've built up a bit of a collection of wax of sets from early 2000's; boxes that when they came out were out of my price range and boxes that have become somewhat difficult to find. At the same time I've definitely given some thought to which boxes I think will go...
