  1. Crunch time!

    Well, this is it...the last weekend of the season. Who comes to the big dance and who has a date with the golf clubs will be decided shortly. Mind you, most of the attendees to the dance are already known but there is still the small matter of the last 3 spots in the East. Philadelphia, Boston, the Rangers and the Habs are stuck in a fight to the death. Tonight, the Habs are playing the Leafs. A win in and they will be given their ticket in to the playoffs fun fair, a loss and they will have to ...

    I came back to the hobby in early 2007 and boy had it changed since I left it. Back in the days when I was still collecting the game-used phenomenon had yet to hit the masses and the emphasis was still on completing sets. That was back in 1995 or something like that...

Having moved to England in 2002, I was missing hockey dearly and taking up ...

  4. 2 Years Later...

    I realized today that according to my profile; I joined SCF on the 20th March 2007. So, 2 years down the line what have I achieve? Well, I have received 282 feedbacks so far granted it's far from the immortal status but I still find that quite an impressive number considering that not everyone wants to make international trades. Still on the achievements front, I found myself a new passion when I started to write about the hobby, I thoroughly enjoy doing that and it's very nice and relaxing. However, ...

  5. The Nationals July 29th to August 2nd 2009

    I'm not ashamed to admit it but I've never ever been to a single card show...When I was collecting as a kid in Quebec I wasnt aware that those even existed so going to the flea market was as exciting as things got card collecting wise and well, since i've started again in 2006, I am plagued by geographical restrictions...

    However, it is looking increasingly likely that I will be able to make it to Cleveland this summer for the National Sports Collector Convention . Of course, ...
