Description This is a brand new product from In The Game, and for many, it constitutes their answer to Upper Deck’s The Cup. However, in my opinion, they have gone one better. This product does not include any base cards, in other words, all cards are inserts with either autograph or memorabilia or sometimes both!
Each box of Superlative contains one pack only and each pack includes seven cards. Each box contains one card from each type of inserts: Autograph, Game Used Jersey, Autographed Game Used Jersey, Superlative Prospect Autographed Game Used Jersey, Game Used Patches, Special Inserts and Famous Fabrics.

Sun rays split my thoughts into two possible ways to spend the weekend: outside doing gardenwork or re-sort my whole collection. I push any guilty feelings away and ignore health, fitness, and tall trees threatening to fall over.

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there for the taking at your local mall; but in our ever evolving society, the traditional shopping trip soon became outdated, and the situation is the same when it comes to getting cards and supplies for us collectors.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 >

Living in Lexington, I went to one of my local card shops and figured I might cover them all sooner or later. Of course we all have one that is our favorite. The landscape has changed as many have come and gone in the last 10 years, and Lexington, Kentucky has been no exception to the nature of the hobby chaos.
So upon the usual drive, I stopped by Burger King to pick up a burger for Larry. I usually pick him up something to eat so we can chat while eating. Nothing worse than chatting and having hunger 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 >
