  1. Why all the fuss over Kris Bryant?

    The Chicago Cubs, as expected, sent top prospect Kris Bryant to minor league camp, and his next stop is likely Iowa for about 2 weeks, or so they say.

    The Players Association, and Bryant's greedy agent, Scott "20 Mule Team" Boras, are crying foul. All they see is that Bryant led all players in HRs in spring training games in Arizona with 9, but, as others point out, he's committed 4 errors at 3rd base, and they want to test him in the outfield. Bryant hasn't said anything ...
  2. 2014 Topps Baseball "Top 50 Rookies" Redemptions

    As a player collector I am VERY disappointed in Topps and their 2014 Top 50 Rookies buyback cards. I recently bought the Dave Winfield card that was redeemed.... there is absolutely no way to distinguish this card from the other 56 1974 Winfield rookies I have.

    There's nothing really strange about getting autographs in the mail, but what I got today was definitely a 1st for me.
    I received an envelope from a singer from Europe named Marcia Barrett. When I opened the envelope there was two autographed pictures inside. One of them was personalized to me, and the other was personalized to a Mr.Bill Clinton......yes that one!

    Luckily Ms.Barrett also included a handwritten note along with the autographs. She thanked me for being ...
  5. Ronda Rousey cards go for a Premium, but her 1st Autograph 1/1 breaks the bank

    Usually 1/1s go for a good bit of change, but for this 2012 Topps UFC Finest 1/1 Red Diamond Platinum FIRST AUTOGRAPH of Ronda Rousey went for a big price tag last month. Closing at the price of $10,103.00 and receiving 59 total bids, this shows you not only what the value of this card is, but also how much people are paying for the premium autograph of one of(understatement?) the best Women's UFC fighters we have seen. There have been other 1/1s that have sold from the same product, and here they ...
