    Website & Photo hosting

    All, I've been out of the collecting circle for a few years. My old tradepage was on FreeWebs and my image hoster was Photobucket. What do y'all do now for those sorts of things. Thanks - Cap'n

    Hello from the past

    Hey all - just reaching out to say hello and I'm going to get back into collecting a little bit. Spent the last several years collecting and playing Magic the Gathering. Didn't do too bad for an old man, but I've sold out of all of that and am back to sports collecting. Hello to my old...

    RIP My Brother In Law

    All, I don't post as often as I used to but I'm just typing this since I'm still quite numb. Earlier today, I found out my brother-in-law, Adam, was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan today. I watched him grow from a quiet boy, to a man in the Marines who wanted to do something more...

    Kyle Gibson

    3-0 with a 0.93 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. It looks like it really does take 2 years to come back from Tommy John ... yes, I know its early.

    How did you start playing?

    Hey all, I thought I would kick this off. I used to collect back in the 90s, but I never found a place to play. Now I have two boys ages 10 and 13 who like to play and I started by playing against them. Now I'm getting into it more and more. Best I've done was in the BOTG Pre-release when I...

    Anybody looking to trade/sell Magic The Gathering Cards?

    Yes, I play and I'm old (45). However, I play against my boys as well as take them to tournaments. I'd be bored if I sat there all day, so I started playing and I rather enjoy it. I would be looking for uncommons, rares and foils in the current standard series (Return to Ravnica to Born of...

    2013 A&G Box Break - Best pull in a while

    Hey all, I've been busting a lot of A&G this year, about 4 boxes worth. I've had some decent autograph pulls, Ziggy Marley and Nik Wallenda, but no players until today... It was a pretty good box for me to as I was able to close in on some of my SPs I needed for the set.

    Big day tomorrow - Closing on a house

    Pretty excited about it. I've been a lifelong renter, but with a family, I've finally decided to put down roots. Found a nice house in town, but still in rural Pennsylvania. Compared to housing costs when I lived in Philly, I'm getting this house for a steal. It even has a small office...

    Return of the Prodigal Child - post yours ..

    Leaf Ink - 2 Box Break (Scans added)

    I thought I'd take a shot on these. I don't purchase too much wax anymore and I get a lot of my cards TTM. I saw the release and thought they were a good idea. I didn't necessarily make money back, but that's not why I bust anyway. All of these probably will stay in my collection. This is...
