Although the expression “defense wins championships” is thrown around by football fans around the world, defense cannot seem to win the hearts of sports card collectors. While many players, such as Bob Sanders and Julius Peppers, are considered franchise players, offensive players receive the love of the majority of collectors. How many times do you see a nice sack on ESPN? How many times do you see a short touchdown by a running back? Exactly. The same goes on in collecting, as there is a certain stigma against defensive players, for whatever reason. Offensive players are glorified More >

It’s funny how you look back at days gone by, especially when they are from so many years ago! Growing up as a kid attending various Bruins games with my family offers only small glimpses of those days. But now that I am older, some of those glimpses into the past become a bit clearer somehow.
How quickly one becomes steadfast on the memories of the greatest players you so fondly remember as a kid! Of course, Bobby Orr is the standout in my mind, often recalling the great moments so clearly imbedded in my memory. The visions More >

You have to get home. You have to check the mail. You pull up in the driveway. You get out of the car and go to the mailbox. You pull the lid open slowly. You grab the stack of mail. You start to thumb through it expectantly and mentally read off what you see. “Bill, bill, letter from your aunt, bill,” then suddenly there it is.

Truth be told, I’m glad I did…as soon as I removed the plastic wrapper from the box and opened it I was exposed to a sheer blast from the past. Looking at the plastic like pack wrappers, I felt like I had gone back More >

Brett Favre’s football heroics are well-documented, legendary, and numerous. And with the 2008 NFL season, Favre looks to relocate the ending of his storied career to a new town: by bringing Favre to New York, the Jets hope to build their own tradition to rival that of Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
In the move to New York, Favre replaces incumbent Jets’ quarterback Chad Pennington, who, despite successful seasons, playoff appearances, and an all-time leading completion percentage with a mediocre team, was expected to battle Kellen Clemens once again for the Jets’ starting job. In a concerted effort More >

There used to be a commonly accepted principle in the sports trading card business, “dealers buy cold and sell hot”. This stems from the days when three manufacturers meant three sets, and when a dealer had everything from the current year, the dealer simply bought cards released the previous year and so on until he had everything. The affordable way to get more of everything was to buy cold and stock up.
Those days are long gone. In the era of the novelty card, 1 of 1′s, jersey and autographed cards, a company with unlimited financial resources still More >
