I believe that many people are often afraid to answer these tough questions on what they would do if they were in charge of www.sportscardforum.com and would shy away from them. I, on the other hand, am not afraid because I know first-hand how the staff members on Sports Card Forum work and believe that my opinions may speak for others on the website. I would like to start by saying that if you agree or disagree with these opinions, please let that be known by posting in the comments section of this blog or on the More >

I have noticed since I started trying to keep my three sons’ baseball and football rookie card collection current that most sellers list a baseball player’s first year card as a player’s rookie card when listing the card for sale on eBay. It also seems to me that these cards bring a higher price than the player’s card with the Rookie Card logo. I have also noticed that these cards have the player in a major league team’s uniform even though he is still in the minors. This is very confusing to baseball rookie card collectors. More >

I have written in the past about Tim Carroll, a very talented artist who uses base cards and turns them into art pieces. In the past, he has made many splendid pieces including ones of Ken Griffey Jr., Mickey Mantle and Joe Nammath. He is currently auctioning the latter to help the relief effort in Smithville Mississippi following the tornadoes. All of the money he makes from selling this piece will be donated to the relief effort. Should you wish to make a bid, here is the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160581206646#ht_500wt_1156

If I were king of the world, I’d have hordes of beautiful women feeding me grapes and basically waiting on me hand and foot. But before you cry “chauvinist!” I’d probably want the inverse if I were female, i.e. droves of men fire dancing and giving me pedicures, each sporting washboard stomachs. My shallowness transcends gender and good taste. Wait, what’s the question again? What if I were king of SCF? Tell you what; I’m going to have to go with the fronds and pedicures because, after all, Sports Card Forum IS my world. Not cool? More >

ITG’s new flagship Enshrined which is now on the horizon has risen more than a few eyebrows, most in sheer anticipation and joy, some in scepticism when the retail price has been announced.
An all Hall of Fame checklist makes it unique in its kind. We’ve seen old timer products, 06-07 Parkhurst and 08-09 Masterpieces come to mind, but none of them contains 100% HoFers. With a new concept, new design and their most luxury product yet to date, I felt it was time to ask Dr. Price a few questions on his new creation.

I mentioned in my last article that sport’s card collecting has always been a form of gambling, but in retrospect I was wrong. I remember when I was a kid that my purchase of a 5 cents pack of cards was never about the value of the cards I would get in the pack anymore then my purchase of a 10 cents comic book was about how much the comic book would later be worth. I wasn’t a collector; I was just a kid who loved to read and fantasize. My sister was a true collector. More >
