A Big Break

By Karine Hains,  Editor-In-Chief

We all know that this hobby of ours can be rather demanding from a financial standpoint. However, most of us still cannot help it and we buy boxes after boxes of wax. Why? Well, we want to improve our collections and we are also chasing after the “big pull”. Some breaks go better than others and we are sometimes left disappointed by the results. How nice would it be to be able to get the cards you want from a box break? Better yet, from a case break!

Lately on Sportscardforum, this has become possible for team or More >

Through the Mail at its Best: Fan Packs

Guest article by sdfc87

I have been collecting fan packs since I was a youngster back 17 years ago believe it or not. I would always use to write a letter to my favourite rugby league team here in Australia requesting just a poster and a sticker. As I would take them to meet the team to get it signed. But I would always get a lot more than just a poster and a letter.

 I write to every team in the nation just after the start of the season and about two weeks later they would all arrive in twos and More >

Crime Aftershock?

Guest article by 6boyds

Hey, did you hear the news?  An NFL player got arrested on a drugs charge!  What? You think this sounds familiar?  You mean to tell me drug charges in the NFL, which is run by strict Roger Goodell, are frequent occurrences?  Get out of here!  Alright, alright, so it happens all the time.  The latest player to be arrested is Santonio Holmes, wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Now, let’s be honest here, this wasn’t his first brush up with the law, but I’ll admit I was surprised.  After his first two charges, both occurring in 2006, More >

October 24th,25th, and 26th, 2008

 

Montreal Collectors’ International Card Show is one of the only annual shows that have sport cards in the Montreal area. Since the end of the 90s, most card show disappeared from the scene. I did speak with a cards shop owner that was at every show in the 80s and 90s. I met him this summer at his shop, sitting in the middle of pile of O-Pee-Chee vintage cards listing them for his eBay store. Back then, he told me he abandoned doing shows but he was there More >

My First Official NHL Game

Guest article by LeAndre

Yes indeed, I’ve been waiting for this moment for 19 long years and boy it feels like the wait is almost over! Tonight is the first official NHL game in Stockholm Sweden between the Ottawa Senators and the Pittsburgh Penguins. While I support Chicago, I was still extremely excited about this game.  In Europe, we watch games all winter long following the NHL as any other fan in Canada or America does. So why shouldn’t we have the privilege to watch a few live games a year? It surely won’t hurt anyone will it?

Europe Bound?

By Karine Hains, Editor-In-Chief

To many, North America is sports heaven; the NHL, the NBA, the NFL and MLB plenty of exciting sports to watch and get into. Having been born in Canada (in Québec to be exact), I got to enjoy sports heaven until I was 22, which is when I immigrated to England. Moving to another country is quite an experience, plenty of ups and downs but once you’re settled, you realize what you really miss from what you could almost call your past life. For instance, getting the newspaper in the morning and starting to read it from More >
