Last time, I wrote about the players that have no business being in Exquisite. While I’m not a fan of the brand, I do realize the cachet it carries. With many collectors anticipating this upcoming release of Exquisite to be Upper Deck’s last stand, here is a dream checklist of players that need to be in Exquisite. Assuming they haven’t finalized anything, Upper Deck needs to do everything in their power to get every player in this set on at least one insert.
Every player on this list has been debated on in various message boards and More >

The first MMA fight I can remember seeing was Royce Gracie vs. Kimo on a tape I had rented from the local video store. Two things I remember from the fight; Kimo coming out carrying a huge cross and how well this small man (Gracie) was able to maneuver the big man with technique. I grew up a big guy and had always relied on strength, power and size to win any fight I may have gotten in and was just flabbergasted how this little man’s technique could just nullify the big Kimo’s power, for More >

Those of you reading this may or may not know about the exploits of my son Austin and me. One of the many things we enjoy doing as a father and son is going to get in-person hockey autographs. It is a great way for us to get out, hang out and have fun with very little cost involved. Over the past couple years we have acquired many signatures from a lot of great NHL players. The following, in no particular order, is a recap of some of our better moments and successes with autographs More >

They say records are made to be broken…It was true for Patrick Roy when he won his 448th game to overtake Terry Sawchuk in the all-time wins category and it is still true today, after Martin Brodeur signed his 552nd win to become the winningest goaltender in the history of the NHL. Yes, last night on the 17th March 2009 Brodeur managed yet another great win and just like that he marked history forever. Fans in New Jersey aptly renamed St. Patrick’s day St. Marty’s day as they celebrated late into the night the pride of New More >

Parallels. While there is no denying the popularity of this concept among collectors today it is hard not to be reminded of the saying “too much of anything is bad” when you look at many of the products in the market. Personally I have a love-hate relationship with these multi-colored parallels especially in recent years. Few would argue against the aesthetic appeal of a rainbow although their sheer number per set can be downright frustrating at times. These days we got, the typical gold, black, red, blue and a whole lot of other color names More >

On March 3, 2008, the sports cards blogosphere was a buzz after reading a report on Autograph Alert’s website. This article (http://www.autographalert.com/news.html) described the ethics of cutting John F. Kennedy signatures by Upper Deck in order to make these autographs fit into a trading card, raised questions regarding the legitimacy of these JFK autos, a questionable Upper Deck Dwight D. Eisenhower President Cut Signature Autograph, Razor’s Richard Nixon Presidential Cut autograph card, and a Razor Oval Office Martin Van Buren Auto 1/1 that may not be legitimate.
