    WTB: 1997 Topps Finest

    I finally decided to go through my binders and boxes of cards to see what I had in terms of complete sets so that I can pass them along to my boys. I didn't realize that I had almost a complete set of 1997 Topps Finest, but only the bronze (common). Since the complete set is 350 cards (not...

    Time travel - AKA, I wish I was smart in 1998

    Going through my old Becket magazines, I came across a March 1998 issue that had Hideo Nomo on the cover. Being curious about prices, I checked out 1996 Leaf Signature Series. I was only 17 at the time and I believe prices were $10/pack at my LCS (maybe $15, I can't really remember). Anyhow, I...

    FS FS: Topps Livng Set 2018 Release (126 cards)

    Last year, I decided to try and collect the Living Set as soon as it was announced. It was an experiment that I figured would be fun for my 7yo son and I to do together. However, we both got a little bored with it after baseball season was over, even though I still bought the cards each week...

    The Refractor Project

    Not sure how many people remember this, but here goes. A few years ago, I started a new collection: to obtain 1 refractor per set released in the 1990s. Topps Finest, Bowman Chrome, etc. Inserts, subsets, parallels. If there's a refractor variant, I want to collect it. Health issues put that...

    1995 Finest Refractors

    Ok, I know I'm not new to the hobby, but what's the deal with 1995 Finest Refractors? I mean, I can find a few commons on eBay because they're labeled wrong and get them cheap that way, but for the rest of the players, the prices are a little nuts considering at this point, the Finest brand is 3...

    Now THIS is customer service

    So I win a card tonight via auction, paid within 5 minutes, etc. 10 minutes after that, I receive an email from the seller: Oh and there was a tracking # already there as well. I'm not saying everyone should do this, as we all have different schedules and actual lives outside eBay, but it's...
