Remember the days where you actually had to go out to buy the things you wanted? Clothes, music, video games, everything was right there for the taking at your local mall; but in our ever evolving society, the traditional shopping trip soon became outdated, and the situation is the same when it comes to getting cards and supplies for us collectors.
We do indeed live in a technological heyday, and many of us turn to the Internet for their regular box or card purchases. However, the Internet is not without its risk as previously discussed in other articles, and some people More >
Collectors today are lucky. With the Internet, the world is their oyster, and there are plenty of sites which can be of great use to them. Be it for trading purposes, like sportscardforum.com or for buying purposes; Beckett marketplace comes to mind or eBay is also rather popular. That being said, while the Internet gives us more options to fuel our card collecting addiction, it also exposes us to a few pitfalls. A good article about buying boxes online safely was written by a fellow Sports Card Forum writer in January and you can read it at the following link More >
2007-2008 Mini-Jersey Hobby Box
Description The 2007-2008 edition of the Mini-Jersey brand features base cards with a picture of the player featured in action against a light blue backdrop and three coloured circles. The name and number of the players are also evident in the lower right corner and the logos of both Upper Deck (top left corner) and Mini-Jersey (bottom left corner) complete the base card design. Overall, it is a simple design, and in some ways, it makes it evident that you are not in the presence of one of Upper Deck’s higher end products.
The box contains 18 packs and More >
As you can probably tell by my previous articles, I love hockey with a passion, and collecting cards is the best outlet I have found to fuel my addiction.

When I first read about this, I told myself there is no way a team would send one of those to England, the shipping charges would be a killer. However, two weeks later, another member who More >
2007-2008 Artifacts Hobby Box
Descrition: The 2007-2008 offering of UD Artifacts features a 100-card base set which includes both a legends and a stars subset. The design of the cards is sober yet efficient, with a picture of the player in action on a blue background including the Artifacts logo. The base set includes 100 cards and there are two further subsets; Legends from #101 to #120 and Stars from #121 to #140. The set also includes rookies from #141 to #200 and rookie redemptions from #201 to #242. Finally it is worth mentioning that Artifacts takes the notion of parallel to new heights, on More >
Last month I traded 225$ BV worth of rookies for inserts (yes, inserts not game used or autos) of Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur. Why you ask? Well mainly because I do not collect rookies, I know there is a lot of hype about a lot of these guys, but the fact is, year in year out, the hype dies down and the value of their cards goes down. However, this year, I have decided to make an exception. On top of Roy and Brodeur, I have decided to start collecting Carey Price. What can I say, a) he is More >
