    1934 Goudey Dick Porter Superfractor - and a Superfractor "How to..."

    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...

    Ridiculous Dick Porter Acquisition - 1933 Who's Who in Baseball Book...player owned copy

    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...

    1934 Goudey in poor, poor condition...and my favorite

    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...

    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...

    Evil Dead - 2013

    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...

    So, who's still waiting for 2013 Topps Silver Slate Redemption packs?

    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...

    2013 Topps Silver Slate Wrapper Redemption packs

    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.

    "It's not fair..." by Craig Biggio

    "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." http://m.espn.go.com/mlb/story?storyId=8832348 Oh Craigers, but it is fair. You're all guilty. You (and...

    Dick Porter Holy Grail acquired...1934 Al Demaree R304

    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...

    FS/FT Large 2012 Topps Football lot FS/FT

    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.

    An eBay update I'd love...RE: stars and feedback

    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...
