    It’s crazy to me this is a real picture. Video included.

    This is an awesome story I was not familiar with. Check it out here: https://tht.fangraphs.com/ted-simmons-and-the-bizzarre-brawl/ TL/DR: nobody was ejected except the Cubs manager and Ted Simmons got the game winning hit in the 9th!

    Fanatics to take over MLB trading card license?

    Why must it be an exclusive deal? Why can’t MLB split it and let the collector win? (I know the answer is $, but how much is enough??) ((I know the answer is: never enough.))

    Anyone here get SCD in print?

    Had a subscription for a couple years in the late 70s. Was really the only source of content. Always a fun read and cool ads. But that was 100 years ago!!

    MrMopar's First* Annual Baseball's Back Contest - No true winner, but dano7 & aanewport are WINNERS of consolation prizes!

    watching a good baseball movie

    Kurt’s dad was a bigger than life character- but they could have played up the David v Goliath a bit more I think. Worth watching for sure. Not many baseball team documentaries. I’d like to watch one on Bill Veeck.

    Recent pull from Topps Archive Signature Series Koufax 2/2

    Having a Koufax in your collection is pretty sweet, but I understand getting the best value out of it. Good luck.

    Anybody need 1980/1990/2000s Phillies commons or parallels?

    I am reducing my shelf space and I’m going through my Phillies commons. If anybody still needs anything - players, parallels - for non-Topps (for now) - lmk. I will gladly send them your way for the postage. Send me your want lists (nothing SSP, no autos, no GU, etc.). Mostly 1980s, 1990s and...

    Those 2010 Upper Deck Exquisite look so chippy on the reverse side. I can’t imagine they would grade particularly well. But I should look at mine and see if any look good. Glad you started this thread!

    I hear people have been complaining about Topps Update?

    That’s a great hit. Glad you found it. Hers my complaint: I hate the inconsistent layout of the fronts and backs of these 2020 cards. (Maybe it’s always been this way and I have not been paying attention.) All portrait images should have the same reverse orientation! It just seems lazy and...

    RIP Gale Sayers

    Never saw him play, but Brian’s Song made a huge impact on me as a kid in the 1970s.

    Birthday and date of death

    Only about 30 miles between his birth and death. But 11 summers with the NY Giants.

    RIP Bob Watson

    Sad to hear. Watson scored MLBs 1,000,000 run back in 1975. He was a gamer.

    Finished a dirty set

    Very cool! But I wouldn’t eat that dirt after all these years! 😂
