  1. 2018 Gypsy Queen Box Break Recap and some banter

    On Monday night, we opened 3 hobby boxes of Gypsy Queen. It was really fun to open, even though our autos were pretty weak. Including getting two Garrett Cooper autos. The Gypsy Queen set this year has a slightly different look than the past GQ sets. Is it me, or is does it feel like all the GQ designs blend together? This set feels different and will stand out from some of the other stale GQ designs. They have gotten the memo. In addition to a new base card look and feel, Topps went all out in ...

  2. The Stella Project

    Surely I am not the only one that goes through ups and downs when collecting. Whether it's boredom from the hobby or financials reasons, people go and back quite frequently. Then the itch will usually come back. For me, what made me want to start collecting again was a project that I thought of that would change collecting for me. A few days before Opening Day 2015, my daughter was born (my first child). I thought it would be really cool to put together a binder of each years Topps flagship product ...
  3. My Manny Machado Super PC

    This was an entry I couldn't wait to write! I told myself I would save this one for when I didn't have another topic at the time. So that didn't take long. Don't be surprised if it's my longest entry. About two years ago, I was tired of buy boxes and packs and not having much luck, especially for collecting guys I like. After wasting too much money on retail and random hobby boxes, I started focusing my efforts on the one player I was searching for the most...Manny Machado. In May of 2016 I had ...
  4. Worst Break Ever - Part 1 (from thecardswap.net)

    March 1st was nerve-wrecking before the break even started. It was the biggest break that I would be running to date and to say I was nervous was an understatement. After some issues going live the night before with a giveaway, I wanted to make sure that everything went smoothly, but more importantly, that everyone enjoyed themselves. This was a big deal to me because it was the first case I had purchased (the case was split into 2 breaks) and it was the first break that I ran that sold out. I wanted ...
  5. My Best "Hit" Ever...

    In sticking with the theme of "what I love about collecting", I decided not to wait long to share the story of the best card I ever got in a pack. It was last summer, my wife and I took a yearly visit to Cooperstown. It's my favorite place on earth for so many reasons, and I would love to open up a card shop there in my future.


    This trip was quicker than the other times we visit, but after hours of checking out the shops, I walked to in a small shop on the end. It ...
