  1. Old-Time Card Collecting

    [FONT=Calibri]Several years ago, on a dim winter day, I was wondering if there were any card shops where I lived other than my local favorite Diamond Sports Cards. I liked the place, but I thought a change would be nice. The free box there only went so far, the packs of 2006 Topps only had so much. So based on the instructions on the back of a Topps promotional card, I called up Topps to find out if there were any other card shops in my area. Entering my zip code of 94960, with a range of fifteen ...
  2. Really!? I Had No Idea!

    It was my first day trading online and I had already spent $25. I bought a Mike Mussina jersey card for $6, a UD Ballpark Collection dual for $10 and an Albert Pujols jersey card for $9. To someone who was used to prices at my local card shop, these seemed like great deals. In reality, I probably could have ended up with all of these for less than half the price.

    I agree a bit more with Sale Value because someone actually ...
  4. Manny Ramirez & Talk About Performance Enhancing Drugs

    Manny Ramirez was suspended for 50 games for using performance enhancing drugs. It is a sad day for baseball. It seems as though every player uses them. I really don't care. No one cares if someone cheated or not. They just want to see homeruns and that's what Manny does. It's the press that makes a big deal out of it. In a lot of sports every single player uses steroids. Every single NFL player or boxer uses them. But people make a big deal about them in baseball. But the main point is no one cares ...
  5. Making Members Offer

    I really can't stand when a seller makes me make an offer. He should be making an offer because he's selling it so should be setting a price. It's almost like a "Best Offer" auction on eBay. It's hard to make a rule against this but I doubt anyone except the seller likes when that happens.
