Has this newest card release gone too far? This is downright creepy & gross.

A good friend of mine (who is a full-time dealer in the area) sent over the selling brochure of a new card release. It is the most polarizing card issue ever because dealers either refuse to carry them, or buy as much as they can.  The manufacturer is now completely sold out!  It has an *AMAZING* checklist, too. I'm not supposed to show the sell sheet as it is supposed to be dealer only, but since they are already sold out, I figured it wouldn't be a big deal. I was told that the autograph mention below is a jab

Story Time!

If you have been reading my posts for a while, you know that I'm not your typical blogger. I don't really have a rhyme or reason to much of what I write. There is very little cohesiveness in my articles, and my segues are a bit of a stretch, to say the least. I don't check for spelling, because writing is fun, and proof reading is not. I'm considered the family dictionary (and calculator), yet I almost left segue above as segway. They are meant to read more like a journal, I suppose. Not that I'm that particularly interesting of

Fantastic New Additions to the PC, Some Customs and More!

Another busy week here at the offices of Mouschi, inc.  Firstly, I know I don't show off much non Canseco stuff, but take a look at this beauty: A Bobby Doerr Topps Tribute patch! It is always nice getting in game used patch cards of players that played several decades ago. Could it be a fake? Could someone have actually torn this card apart ... a REAL Bobby Doerr Topps card and swap out a plain old relic for a patch?  And if so, how? Well, let me show you. Simply take this card: Saw it in half: and put

This week in Customs … (Yeah, I’m a little bit excited)

(If you don't want to read the below drivel, and are not a big fan of pictures, I have a video below showing off some customs ... but please do stick around and read this first, if you have the time!) So, I think I have an addictive personality. When I first got on my own, I BALLOONED to quite a rotund size, thanks to an IV drip of dr. pepper, and a steady diet of McDonalds.  I couldn't stop drinking that sweet, sweet nectar of the gods.  Thanks to running and a much better diet (read: a wife who

10 OUTRAGEOUS things you can do with baseball cards … #7 will SHOCK you. (plus – video inside)

How is that title for click-bait? I'm sorry, friends - I don't have a list of 10 outrageous or shocking things that you can do, but I wanted to pay homage to all of those websites that post on facebook and encourage me ... no ... spiritually move me to click, just so I can see what the heck is so shocking about #7. While I'm there, might as well read the other 9 as well! My wife is complete opposite ... she won't click on something like that if her life depended on it. I guess I'm the only

Join me LIVE in going to Super Collector Status … plus … customs!

Today has all the makings to be a big mail day for me, and my PC. Something that could potentially make me go from being a Canseco collector to a Canseco SUPER collector. Why do I say that is could, and not that it is? Well, that is because as I type this, I am waiting for the mail man to deliver my 30 pound package to me. It is coming from up north, and as of yesterday morning, the USPS website showed this: I was very skeptical about this, because - how can a package come so far, so

A Christmas Gift from Tony Danza

With today being the first of a brand new year, I thought it would be appropriate to recap 2014 today. Yeah, I know it would have been better if I had done this yesterday, but better late than never! This year, I started doing custom cards - it all started when my childhood hero, Jose Canseco was going to come into town. I started toying with the idea of putting together a Topps base card one night, and post it on a forum. With a devilish grin, I posted it, very proud of myself - wondering how many thousands of

Maiden Voyage of the Carboard Mobile 2.0

About a month or so ago, we agreed to get a new cardboard mobile ... errr ... minivan. Let me preface this by saying I have not EVER been a minivan dude ... I've grown up being all about horsepower . I can remember verbally proclaiming with many witnesses around that I would never get a minivan. Well, here we are with our second one. The old one had nearly 160,000 miles, and I felt like it would be time to change out with something that had the stow & go seating. Not for groceries or kids of course ...

500k Cards Gone and still doesn’t look like I made a dent! Plus…Tom Selleck

These past few weeks have been very, very busy. It has been a good busy, for the most part, but I have had a difficult time carving out a few minutes to blog. So, here I am - in the middle of a hectic schedule, writing this, so I can have a nice little fun account of what has been going on in life with my hobbies recently. First off, Bo Jackson was in town, and I was unable to put enough brain power to it early enough to garner enough attention from others to make it worth taking the

Chasing Babe Ruth’s Autograph…

It has been a while since I have posted an article, and people have been asking where I have gone (yay! people care!) I have been in the middle of a number of things that life has thrown at us. On the fun side, I've been gathering and researching for a project I'm working on. More on that in the coming weeks/months. For now, I'll start off with my chase for Babe Ruth's autograph. Well, the actor who played the Babe in the movie "The Babe", that is. None other than Rosanne's fake hubby John Goodman! I heard he was
