    Rainout Sportscards on Beckett Marketplace...Out of Business?

    I purchased a lot of cards from Rainout Sportscards from the Beckett Marketplace on Feb. 27. USPS says shipping info was received on the 28th, but there hasn't been any updates stating the cards have actually been shipped. Their store on the marketplace now loads a 404/Page Not Found error.

    Red Sox / Napoli deal...what's going on?

    Haven't heard any hint of a completed deal, with no signs of one coming soon. Any chances the Sox can still grab LaRoche?

    1990 Score Wrong Back

    How rare are these? http://www.ebay.com/itm/1990-Score-Ellis-Burks-Steve-Lake-RARE-1-1-Wrong-Back-2-Card-Pair-/230891382300?pt=US_Baseball&hash=item35c232e61c I've seen this one pop up often, and I'm thinking of making an offer. I'm not sure how many exist, or how common this error is overall.

    Couple of big pickups for my Ellis Burks collection...

    New additions to the Burks collection have been slow as of late. I did manage to pick up a couple of big ones lately, however. First is a GU bat from his '04 stint with the Red Sox. He only played in 11 games that season, so gamers are rare. Second is his 1989 Topps Heads Up Test...

    Launched My New Site Today...

    I never really liked displaying my vintage collections on my Ellis Burks site. They don't seem to fit the look and feel. After "re-branding" my old T206 site, I launched red-type.com to display my T210 set and 1887-1957 type card collection. Feel free to let me know if you notice any browser...

    GU Bat Mailday

    One of my Ellis Burks collection goals for 2012 was to add a GU bat from either the White Sox, Rockies, Giants, or Indians. Thanks to Steve at sfbatrack.com, that goal has been accomplished: Take a look at Steve's site. He has an amazing collection featuring approximately 325 Giants GU bats.
