    Jason Heyward WAR vs. Carlos Gonzalez WAR

    Looking at stat lines on ESPN, I was surprised to find that Heyward is 5th in the NL in WAR with 1.6 and Gonzalez is 431st with -0.3 (not including today's games). I haven't watched either play this year, so I can't see anything beyond the box score. Is Heyward just that great of a fielder and...

    Fraudulent Card Dump on Ebay

    I've never seen so many suspicious cards being sold at the same time. Someone is either working really hard or they're dumping their inventory. Obviously not every card is fake, but if you're not sure of a seller make sure to check out their other listings. Here is the list of cards that appear...

Pay zero Insertion Fees, even for...

    Showoff Time: 2003 Leaf Certified Rainbows

    I've been slowly going after these for about 6-7 years. I know I'll never complete the mirror black set, but I think I've got a shot at completing the others. I picked up the Thomas emerald about a year ago and the Thomas emerald patch a few months ago, so now I have 19/24 emeralds. My only...

    Value of a 1991 Topps Desert Shield complete set

    Does anyone remember any completed listings for a complete set? I know someone who has one, but I have no idea if the value would be more if he pieced it out.

    Any Phil Humber prospect stories?

    He would have a few more wins if not for the Sox offense, but he's been one of the best starters in baseball this year. Did anyone have any leftover Humber stashes that they sold recently or sold for cheap last year? Anyone remember sale prices last year or when he was at his peak? It's...

    I Hope You Didn't Just Buy This Ichiro Patch for $1750

    Someone just bought this Ichiro Triple Threads patch for $1750. Despite stating that it was pack pulled, the seller bought it 2 weeks ago for $265 (Ebay #320663221181) from steelerswheel71, and if you collect patches then you know it's fake. This is an expensive reminder for someone that you...

    2008 Topps Sterling Jumbo Patch and Jersey Quantities

    Instead of numbering each card properly and then serial numbering the individual cards, Topps essentially reversed that process and serial numbered each one 1/1 and numbered each card differently. For instance, each Reggie Jackson is serial numbered 1/1, but there is only one RJA3, one RJA13...

    Mailday 03 Leaf Certified Mirror Black Jackie Robinson Patch

    Just got in my new favorite card, which came to $545 shipped after Bing and Ebay bucks. The starting price was $100 with a $600 BIN, which I chose to utilize so I could be sure of owning it. A 0 feedback seller, too. The auction was up for about 3 hours before I won it, so I'm not sure if any...

    Single Biggest Purchase To Date (Button Cards)

    My spending has gone down since Ultimate started drying up, as most of the nice patches are now in personal collections. I decided to spend a bunch (about $830) to get these five button cards. I may have spent a bit too much, but they're not exactly cards that appear very often. Plus, the...

    New 2009 Ultimate Collection Patches Popping Up?

    I haven't been collecting the set, but I've bought a ton of the vintage patches and looked on with curiosity at the prices of the short prints and modern players. I search for ultimate patches at least every few days, and it seems like in the past week I've seen some players that I don't...

    This guy's not going to be happy

    Seeing this bums me out about patch collecting, but it makes me glad I'm a member of this board to know about all the different types of cards. I'm sure the existence of this board has informed many player collectors about fake patches, because if you just search for one player you might not...

    US Buyers having to pay customs duty from Canada

    I got a slip on my door from UPS that says I owe 24.75 for customs duty for a package shipped from Canada. I've never had to pay it before, but I don't think I've ever gotten a package from Canada shipped UPS. Is this a special thing with UPS? Has this happened to anyone else? I wasn't...

    Is Ultimate Dried Up or Is the Craze Over?

    There's only one box listed on the first two pages of the box break boards, but there are boxes on Ebay for $104.50 shipped, which seems like a decent price. In the first couple of weeks after the set came out it seemed like the majority of posts were of Ultimate. Has everyone had enough? Are...

    Complete the alphabet using game-used lettermen?

    I remember a post a long time ago where we tried to see if somebody had a card serial numbered to each number (1, 2, 3,etc). Can we do the same thing with the alphabet and game-used letterman? It counts if it's from the nameplate or logo, so if we get to X we can use the front of the Red Sox...

    Stan Musial Triple Threads Jumbo Repaired Jersey 1/3

    I've been buying a ton of Ultimate patches and bat barrels, but this Musial might top them all. I bought it on Ebay a few weeks ago for about $150, which I think is a pretty good price. I remember it was sold before, or maybe it was one of the other two, but does anyone remember the closing...

    Post What You've Gotten from 2009 Topps Unique

    2009 Topps Unique offered the first nice White Sox cards of Ordonez that have come out in the past few years. I'm glad they pictured him in the same team jersey that the patches are from. This set featured some nice game-used cards, and some awkward looking button cards- what did you get...

    First fakes from 2009 Ultimate Collection

    It was inevitable, but this is still fast turnaround time for faking a product. These are all sold by seller aruba202. I've noted discrepancies on a few, which is enough for me to stay away from all of them. If you look at the other Ordonez patches from this product, you can easily see that...

    Any Info on 2005 Throwback Threads Green Century Proof?

    This is one of the cards I'm missing from my Rowand collection, but I can't remember if I've seen one of him. Were these issued in packs or maybe some kind of retail exclusive? There are only 20 different ones on the Beckett Marketplace, and the Griffey is only $5, so they can't be all that rare.

    Highlights from 5 months of patch mail

    I only post a handful of mailday posts a year, so I'm making them count. It probably looks like I'm a bazillionaire, but I sold off some other patches and will sell off a few more to pay for some of these. I have a habit of buying cards I think are nice, then finding a better one later on and...
