Mar 10, 2010 |

Good: Strong base set, classic design, compelling checklist. Bad: Lack of innovation. The Bottom Line: 2010 Topps Heritage certainly doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but its still an above average product that is worth checking out. Design I’m personally a huge fan of the 1961 Topps baseball set, so 2010 Topps Heritage scored big designwise for […]

Mar 09, 2010 |

It is absolutely SHOCKING to see how bad Retail Packs can get! Especially after opening a Hobby box of SP Threads a few months back. In all honesty, if you put a 24-Pack Retail box and 2 Hobby Packs in front of me, I would take the 2 Hobby Packs without thinking twice! If you want […]

End of an Era in San Diego as LaDainian Tomlinson Moves On

Mar 03, 2010 |

LaDainian Tomlinson is the reason I got back into collecting sports cards and memorabilia after a lengthy absence. To prove that’s no hyperbole, allow me to back up a step and explain. I grew up in the 1980s collecting cards from all four of the major sports, with the biggest chunk of my collection devoted […]

2009 Topps National Chicle Football Product Review

Mar 01, 2010 |

2009 Topps National Chicle Football is one of the best vintage products I’ve ever opened. The art used for the cards is inspired, imaginative, refreshing, and does justice to the game of Football. What’s even cooler is they used artists from Videogames, Comics, Sports, and various other walks of life. Topps National Chicle is Topps Mayo done […]

2010 Topps UFC Main Event Product Review

Feb 25, 2010 |

Good: Packed with hits, sleek design, strong checklist. Bad: Price is heavily marked up by dealers, gold parallels are boring and uninspired. The Bottom Line: 2010 Topps UFC Main Event, Topps’ third UFC trading card product to date, delivers in a big way. As good as the first two UFC trading card products were, Main […]

Collecting Ryan Miller: A New USA Olympic Hero is Born

Feb 23, 2010 |

It wasn’t quite the “Miracle on Ice,” but Sunday’s USA Olympic hockey victory over Canada – the first such win since 1960 – ranks just a notch or two below it in the country’s history in the sport. Though the U.S. team is comprised entirely of NHL players just like Canada’s squad, most observers gave […]

2009 Topps Platinum Football Product Review

Feb 18, 2010 |

When opening 2009 Topps Platinum Football, it felt like I was opening a product that should cost a lot more than $5.99 a pack!
