  1. Jets Fans Make for a Memorable Game

    In 1990 the Edmonton Oilers were on there way to their fifth Stanley Cup win in seven years. But in the 2nd game of the playoffs on April 6th they faced off against against some crazy Jets fan. I guess the 7 to 5 victory for the Jets in game one boosted their confidence because the Jets fans entered the Coliseum with painted faces and Jets flags draped over there shoulders like they were Superman while chanting: "We're number one! We're number one!".

  2. Rookie Card or not ?

    I got an email asking if this card was a rookie card or not as several are currently listed on websites for sale. This question has been asked before and I will repeat exactly what I said previously.

    2012 Panini Father's Day Rookies #12 Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

    This card (along with the others from this 'set') is not a ROOKIE CARD. It is not recognized by Beckett as a RC because it doesn't come from a regular issued set. It doesn't matter that it is serial-numbered or not it ...

  5. Collecting Yastrzemski - February, 2013

    What an amazing month this was for my collection! It also meant the start of the 2013 Baseball season for Vanderbilt University! Michael started his final season with the Commodores with a respectable stat line going 11 for 32 (.344), 9-R, 9-RBI, 6-BB, 4-K, 7-SB, 1-CS, 2-HBP, 0-ERR, 1-2B, 1-3B, 1-HR, 1-SH & 3-SF. He definitely did better than I did for the month when it came to winning auctions as I went 5 for 16 (.313).
