    That Time I Accidentally Cornered The Market On A Card

    I have very eclectic collecting habits. Other than my Astros autograph collection (only 19 away from the all-time team!) most of my personal collection is so specific that I do not end up with a lot of competition. The single exception to this is my Marwin Gonzalez collection. While I do not...

    Is Topps Lying About Print Runs For Topps Now?

    This popped up on SCN, and since you have to be subscribed to read it, I wanted FCB's thoughts on this. I sent Topps a message about it, but doubt I'll get a response. Anyone with better connections there want to give it a shot? For baseball cards, it would be very difficult to find out if...

    The Best Collection Websites

    I have been grappling with the reality that AstrosAtoZ.com is a little boring and am looking for some inspiration about how I could change it up to be more engaging from both the displaying of my collection and showing off the article and interviews I have written. So what are some collection...

    The Best Autograph In My Collection

    Every Veteran's Day I start to think about my family and how much they have sacrificed for this country. Both of my grandfathers fought in WWII, one for the US and one for Canada. This was my grandfather that fought for what would become the USAF during WWII. He passed away when my father...

    My First Redemption (FedEx Is Crazy Inefficient)

    I traded an extra Altuve RC for a redemption card that was a GU/Autograph of some Dodgers rookie pitcher. I made the trade to help out an Astros fan that didn't want to pay that much money for a base card and, for me, trading a base card for an autograph is something I will do all day long. So...

    Topps Series II Dead?

    I mostly buy singles on eBay and very little Series II has hit for my guy, Marwin Gonzalez. Is anyone else seeing a lack of their guy or has Marwin just avoided the breakers so far?

    My Wife Is Incredible, An Astros A To Z Milestone!

    My wife got me an incredible Father's Day gift. While there are a lot of rare autographs on here, there is one in particular that mattered for my collection. Pidge Browne, pronounced "Brownie", has been the #2 name on my want list for at least a decade. He was not on the team represented...

    Astros Sign Carlos Beltran

    As an Astros fan that has booed Beltran since he turned his back on us in 2005, I can't decide how I feel about this. Talk me off the cliff.

    Beckett Acquires Zistle

    For me, this seems like a very bad thing. The e-mail asked if I have ever tried Beckett Organize. So all of the time I spent putting my cards into Zistle, I am assuming, is about to go down the toilet.
