Everyone may have their own strategy to properly bust a box of cards, and for everyone it’s different. Heck, even the way we refer to this process seems to vary amongst all members of the hobby. Breaking a box. Busting wax. Cracking a case. Simply, opening some cards. Developing one’s own strategy for bringing these treasures to life in a collection is a serious task that all of us must consider.
First things first, you must figure out where the process will take place. If you’re lucky, you don’t have to find some secluded place to avoid More >

Or will it ever? Ever since the beginning of the human race, women were looked down upon. They were rarely allowed to leave camp to go hunting, and were stuck with the cooking and cleaning. IT stayed this way for centuries and centuries, before women, led my Susan B. Anthony, proved to the world that they were better than everyone thought they were. They fought hard for their rights, and they were happy with what they received. But should they be completely happy?
Across the world, women are still looked down upon. One of the easiest places More >

Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook allow fans to follow their favorite athletes, view their messages, pictures, updates and even post messages to the athletes in the hope of a response.

Each year, the presents now get blander and I am less excited to grow up. While a pack of socks may make a good present this year, years ago that would never have been the case. When I was younger, I would get excited for a Hot Wheels track or Super Soaker. Those toys were fun, but they rarely lasted. Thirteen years ago though, I was given my best birthday present ever, my More >

I have been collecting sports cards for over twenty years now and I still enjoy it just as much as I did when I was five years old. I still go to the hobby shop on the weekend and shoot the breeze with the owner and I still watch eBay for hours at a time in hopes of getting that last second bid in on that certain card that I have been watching for a week. Heck even when I go to Wal-Mart for grocery shopping you More >

Let’s see where to begin to discuss this crazy relationship that some call a hobby but I prefer to call a lifestyle. Now, I’m going to tell you a little story about how I got addicted at an early age and how it has carried on for over twenty years. I started collecting baseball cards when I was only four years old. Now, as you all can probably figure, at that time being only four years old, I really didn’t understand the concept of the hobby of collecting sports cards. I loved the Atlanta Braves More >
