The 90’s: Underprinted Sports Cards in a Decade of Excess

Jan 05, 2010 |

One of the biggest hobby stories of 2009 was the comeback of the 90’s collector. Coming back into collecting for this group (mid 20’s-early 30’s) meant coming to grips with the reality that your collection is probably worth nothing. The reason for this is simple, they printed too many cards! I was sorting through a box […]

2009-10 Topps Puck Attax Hockey Product Review

Jan 02, 2010 |

Good: Nice looking design. Bad: Unengaging game play. The Bottom Line: 2009-10 Topps Puck Attax is the next step in Topps’ line of sports card gaming products. While there are some redeeming qualities to it, the game itself isn’t much fun to play. Hardcore young hockey fans will likely enjoy Puck Attax, but its unlikely […]

2009 Topps T-206 Baseball Product Review

Dec 23, 2009 |

Good: Nice selection of inserts, short prints, and rookie cards. Bad: Borderline cartoonish design, lacks an “it” factor that really sets it apart from other baseball card products. The Bottom Line: 2009 Topps T206 is an above average product that is worth buying for diehard fans of Topps Allen and Ginter and Topps Heritage. Unfortunately […]
