  1. I need to get my collection more organized

    I was moving some cards around tonight and opened a box of cards that I hadn't touched in a couple years. Running my fingers across the top I noticed a Ryan Howard GU card. I was pretty excited so I sat down at the kitchen table and looked through the entire 660 ct box.

    I found the following:
