It's been a white since I've posted a custom or a custom "how to" so this should be an appropriate "knock out two birds with one stone" approach.
As a lot of you already know, Dick Porter (an old family friend of my father and grandfather) had a mere two main cards from his playing days - 1933...
For those that collect players from the early 1930s, you’re probably familiar with this book. However, you’re probably more familiar to it in the standard red covered retail format if you own the book. Or simply the specific page of your guy. Countless copies have been chopped up and made into...
Running the club for 7 World Series title seasons behind the plate for the Yankees, Dickey replaced legendary HOFer manager Joe McCarthy in May of 1946 and managed through the rest of the season. Dickey, however, only managed one other club professionally...Southern Association's Little Rock...
Okay, so those who know my collecting habits...Dick Porter is a focus. With only two main cards, it's limited to chase so I always look for oddballs, mis-cuts, etc. so why is this copy my favorite (out of roughly 60 copies of this card including a PSA 8)? The era handwriting on the back. Sure...
Short and sour.

Now please...move on.
With the second Ghost record being released yesterday, they had a small signing in a gallery in Hollywood in the midst of their "Haze Over North America" tour.
While I had an signed, along with a lithograph...I had to get a baseball signed. Why not? It's the only baseball that the singer has...
As a slight fan of the horror/gore genre, this one intrigued me. Skeptical of the remake considering the cult status and campy feel of the first generation with Raimi and Bruce Campbell, once they were on board as producers...I felt pretty good about seeing it.
Without giving anything away...it...
These packs first started appearing in mail boxes a week and a half ago, so...who else is still waiting?
Looks like the initial shipments were focused around the under 5 pack crowd, and I'm in line for 10.
As a "small time" guy, I like the almost certainly unintentional advantage given to the...
My brain told me to sell...but my gut won and I opened them up.

As for the base cards, shockingly, out of 60 base cards...zero doubles. I...
It's Friday and I'm going through some misc. boxes...1978 Donruss Skateboarding Stacy Peralta rookie card. The front of the "card" is a 70's skateboard sticker "I Thirst for Skateboarding."
A couple years later this little Atlanta based company would kick out their first full baseball set...no...
I saw that the wrappers for my household maximum of 10 packs were received today.
In lieu of getting another house and therefore another 10 packs...what are the opinions on when the 10,000 packs run out from Topps? A week?
Of note, the first postmark date allowed was Wednesday January 30, 2013.
"I think it's kind of unfair, but it's the reality of the era that we played in," he said. "Obviously some guys are guilty and others aren't, and it's painful for the ones that weren't."
Oh Craigers, but it is fair. You're all guilty. You (and...
I have the following lot available. Looking to move it in a single lot, in bulk, ideally to another set builder.
I've tried to highlight some of the "bigger" cards in the large bulk sections (there are no Luck, Griffin, Richardson or Martin...but most other players are represented).

All, some friends of mine are on the final Kickstarter stretch to get this film backed. The $5,000 goal will help in the final editing/mixing process. My request? Simply check out the link on Kickstarter below. If you can help contribute, even $5, that would be great...
Okay, it's not every day that I'll pay $400 for a for a tab where almost half of it is cut off...well...except for this. Basically, below the name, there was a folded over tab about the same size as the card itself.
Even with the tab, these are really tough vintage issues and Dick Porter was...
After building a couple sets, I'd like to move the rest of the singles, inserts, etc.
The lot has not been picked over and it doesn't have a Griffin, it has a Luck and the rest of the "big" rookies - most with multiples. With standard Topps collation, I had to grab some singles from Sportlots...
Ok, it's easy to see what type of feedback people have left, but you have to scroll through the list to see if they leave a lot of negatives, neutrals, etc.
What I want is the same display that seller feedback has, but showing how the person leaves feedback and stars.
Therefore, someone who...
