The Quest for Hamilton Continues

After going back and forth with someone online for a few weeks, a guy was finally able to break free from his engagements, and come over.  He brought with him a few items that we had talked about over email.  A Barry Bonds autographed baseball bat, and a Nomar Garciappara autographed baseball.  He traded those for some unopened boxes I had left over from my Black Friday monster purchase, so I'm now enjoying them in my office!    I particularly enjoy the Bonds bat - I mean, what's not to like?  The all time home run king autographed this puppy,

The Quest Continues (and card / story pick ups along the way!)

Ok, so I'm going to hammer out the update for my question to go from a 1989 Fleer set to a 1999 Topps Traded Josh Hamilton autographed rookie card first and foremost. I had an ad online, selling a boat load of older complete sets for $150.  I didn't even think anything about my "boat anchor" (the 1989 Fleer complete set) as others have called it to be part of a deal.  Since I was selling for $150, I brought along the set, hoping he ws going to ask me to break a $20 (it seems like people bring along

Trading Game! Are you in?

The other night, we went to a friend's house for her birthday party.  It was at her parent's casa, so they had a fire going, and a good time was had by all.  Her dad was there, and I remembered he collected baseball cards.  I struck up a conversation with him about it, and he invited me in to show me some of his stuff. He mentioned he largely got out of the hobby, but still had a few items.  Notably, from what I recall, a 1968 Topps Nolan Ryan / Jerry Koosman rookie - autographed by both!, a 1999

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The empty gravity boxes were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that packs of baseball cards soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of superfractors danced in their heads Strasburg in its magnetic holder, a screw down held Shaq Both had been pulled from a few newly busted packs When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I ran downstairs and saw it was the batter Away to the

Can Yu Spot the SP?

So, I did an "I Break, You Buy" for a feller named Ryan tonight on Blog TV.  A fun time was had by all.  While me, and the small crowd of people were waiting for Ryan to make his presence, the group was treated to a song, and dance by yours truly.  I promise I'm not on any meds.  By that same token, I can almost promise you that everyone there thinks I should be.  Ahh, teh interwebs... Anyway, The break was of a 2012 Topps 24 pack series II.  $24 gets you a LIVE and recorded bust of it,

1st Break – Mike672 for 2010 Topps Update 24 Pack Box

Here are the hits and the videos!  Mike672 opted to have me bust his box for him, video tape it, and he gets the hits.  He only paid $16 for the box, and left the commons behind, so he didn't have to pay to ship them.  I'd say he did really well!  It looks like about $80 worth of book value here.  Vintage Legends Babe Ruth & Jackie Robinson, Philadelphia A's Short Print, Nolan Ryan Short Print and Buster Posey Rookie Several rookies of Giancarlo Stanton, Jason Heyward & Starlin Castro FIVE Stephen Strasburg Rookies!

How would YOU like a Group Break where every team is YOURS?

I have about 220 or so factory sealed boxes left, and I'm going to offer this up to some folks.  I think this should be fun.  You pick from the list of unopened boxes I have here. Here is how it works.  Let's say you only want to buy a box of 2008 Goudey.  I sell that locally here for $25 (retail, it is $72 + Tax!)  but shipping would probably be another $6 or so.  $31 for the box delivered to you is still a great deal, but here is the difference.  You have *me* bust it for you

Out with the old, In with the new …

If you have been following along, you have seen that I have been posting things about comics.  Last night, after being in my possession for a total of 8 days, the latest comic book collection left.  A guy who found an ad of mine online that was nearly 7 hours away, decided to make the trip out.  He ended up here with a truck at midnight.  At first, I was worried that they were going to fit, since we didn't do any measurements or anything.  Well, not only did they fit, they fit *easily* - and it was a fast
