    Personally I think those booklet cards are impractical and a storage nightmare! I'd rather sell any book card I'd pull and buy a nice On Card Certified Autograph of a player I need for my collection.

    With all the proof I've dug up regarding card companies using TOTALLY FAKE "game-used" items (Pacific & Playoff, Donruss/Playoff then Panini) for cards, how can we believe ANY are real other than those with individual MLB Authentication stickers on each swatch? Then there's the card companies admittedly using Spring Training items and "special event" items. THESE ARE NOT REAL GAME-USED ITEMS!

    In 2001, it was well established with Beckett, Tuff Stuff, the card companies, and the Players Associations that game-used items MUST be items used in games that count towards the athletes career stats, period.
    Yet somewhere along the way, that establishment went out the window. Upper Deck started that mess in 2010 using FAKE college football jerseys & patches in products. So many collectors (and full time dealers too) became way too trusting of card companies after I got too sick to fight & report like I used to in 2009... sadly no one picked up where I left off as much as I tried to inspire that.

    In 2010 (and later) Upper Deck was using FAKE "game-used" college jersey patches that were sent to players, supposedly the players put the jerseys on & took them right off and MAGICALLY they were "game-used"; NO WAY SIR & THANK YOU UPPER DECK FOR SCREWING EVERYONE WHO BOUGHT A PATCH CARD OF NFL HOF players from that JUNK game-used product! We need to stop falling for JUNK cards like this & READ THE ENTIRE CARD BACKS! Because if you did read the entire card backs of these cards, you'd be as disgusted as I was in 2010!!! I posted this on my blogs, but they are free hard to find blogs (Google+, and Facebook "What Beckett Will Never Tell You" that are easy for me to use or I'd have to chose nothing at all.

    I think card companies first created these BOOKLET cards with displaying them in mind, but they failed to think of the fading that occurs when you do this (unless it's in a proper UV resistant holder AND placed in a dark enclosed cabinet with no direct light on the card anywhere- for display). Not all of us have display cabinets or the space to even put them.

    These days we can't even contact one person at any card company with any power to cause positive change. Topps outright BLOCKED collectors from being able to call or email anyone at Topps (like Executives other than USELESS Joe Kellachan) who should know what collectors are thinking (especially how Customer Service SCREWED so many of us over because their own Duryea, PA employees robbed them blind of OUR On Card Autograph redemption cards and replacement cards, so they (MINERVA OR SABRINA: the two CS Witches) sent us nothing but JUNK we never wanted from 2012-2016 (or later!).

    We need a few HEALTHY long time collectors who are well educated in many aspects of this hobby to fight card companies for everyone else. I CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE!

    Here he comes to save the day
    And he will prove that crime will never pay
    So let the trumpet players play
    For Cardcop is here today!!!
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Inspector Gordon: What is it young sir?
    8 Year Old Child: I saw gangsters chopping up cocaine with illegal black market non MLBPA licensed trading cards...whatever should I do?
    Inspector Gordon: This sounds like a case for Cardcop...let's fire up the searchlight and get the Cardcop signal in the air
    8 Year Old Child: But mister, mister...I'm afraid those gangsters are going to distribute those black market non MLBPA licensed trading cards into packs this very minute!
    Inspector Gordon: No worries little one, when CardCop sees the CardCop signal he comes immediately. After all, we all know non MLBPA licensed trading cards are a gateway crime that lead to autograph forgeries & fake patches
    8 Year Old Child: I see him, I see him! Look at CardCop go! He's beating up the bad guys and destroying the cards! YAY CARDCOP!!! Wait a sec...why is he putting white powder up his noes?
    Inspector Gordon: Well sonny, everyone has their vices
    Gordon & Child look at each other and then burst out laughing
    Inspector Gordon: LOL, classic CardCop! I hope you learned a lesson here little one
    8 Year Old Child: Boy, I sure did! Without an MLBPA license, trading card companies have no right to depict players in MLB uniforms and if these trading card companies slip up again they'll have CardCop to deal with!
    Inspector Gordon: And what else?
    8 Year Old Child: Make sure to leave out some cocaine when you call him...he suuuuure does love the stuff. Look at him go
    CardCop: Anyone want a booty bump?
    Gordon & Child look at each other and then burst out laughing again

    There hasn't been much controversy in the highlights lately.

    Not very flashy and I'm not a huge fan of his but he should be a solid middle of the rotation guy, Sox need lots of pitching help

    I think the main thing a 108 win team needs is to stay on budget to retain their stars. iirc JD Martinez has an opt out after next season. . . considering his uptick in output they will owe him a shtload more $$$, probably can't resign him and Betts now with this Eovaldi deal.

    Best move the Sox could have made is to get in on the inevitable dumpoff tankjobs that seem to happen constantly now... this year its the M's and Dbacks and I think trading for Marco Gonzales would be a smart idea. (Owed only a mil next year)

    Which leads to the next oddity: with more teams tanking for the #1 pick next year than winning it all, is Bartolo Colon the most wanted player right now? ? He would accomplish 3 things

    1. suck, and suck for a large sample size.
    2. not be that expensive
    3. be that kind of gimmicky "fun" that shtty teams need to get at least 12k attendance per game.

    Very nice. Somewhere around here I still have my "Mr Ass" wrestling figurine, the one where he has the lip tights.
