  1. That Old Rookie Card Snafu Again

    Boy what a hot topic issue right now. We usually get about one or two emails asking about 'Rookie' clarification a week and lately it seems to be one or two a day. First let me say don't trust the card companies who slap the word 'ROOKIE' around or put 'RC' on cards at will. They have a very vested interest in driving people to their product and driving prices up for them. Years ago at least half of these so called rookie cards (Pacific, Ultra, Topps) actually weren't rookies at all. Now it is simply ...

  2. CONNOR McDAVID YG RC

    I was asked my opinion on the Connor McDavid YG RC coming out of 2015-16 Upper Deck Series 1. First I live by my card rule that in most cases 'PATIENCE' is a virtue. There are so many of these cards available and the market will get flooded even more than it is now when retail product kicks out in a week or so.

    I cannot tell you the hundreds of stories I've heard and seen first hand from people losing thousands of dollars because of crooks taking their items for a fraction of their value. I've caught guys doing this and been threatened by them because I told guys not to sell their ...

  4. Card Shipping From USA To Canada

    I've received plenty of cards in a toploader+pwe that always arrived safely, but I was wondering if it's just as safe to send a normal sized card+toploader+pwe to Canada too? Some guy there made me a good offer on a card so I need to know as soon as possible. Thanks!
  5. Now, let's hope they don't wait another 30 years.......

    The following was posted on my personal blog, The Land of Whatever, earlier today:
    ====================
    And, so, it's over. The Kansas City Royals marked the 30th anniversary of their first World Series championship by winning this year's edition in 5 games over the Mets. The two teams won't have to wait long to meet again, however, as they'll open the 2016 season at Kaufmann Stadium next April.

    To give credit where it's due, the Royals played like the hungrier team, ...
