    Edgar Martinez HOF ... Thoughts?

    Edgar definitely belongs. As a regular third baseman or first baseman, he actually would have put up even more WAR in his career. The fact that most of his career value came solely from his bat is very impressive. I watched him play a lot of his career and he is easily one of the best hitters I've ever watched. He was always a surefire Hall of Famer to me.

    eBay Sales Tax - Changes now in effect!

    The sales tax will hurt the hobby in a couple ways. It will hurt the margins of people selling cards and also will mean buyers can buy less. Even a 5% sales tax adds up over the course of buying and selling. I don't think it will cripple the hobby, as everything else is affected, too, but it will certainly reduce spending a bit.
  5. So, why doesn't Topps take a stand against all the fake cards listed on eBay? I tweeted about a reprint Trout Update rookie last night, but just found another gem that takes the cake. 1. It's a reprint. 2. It's a reprint auto (forgery?). 3. It's graded by some unknown company. 4. It's using MLB logos even though Topps has exclusive rights. (A) You would think Topps would put a stop to it, or (B) eBay would try to prevent these from being sold. Either way, it's shady... stay safe out there!
  6. Yeah, that's about when I saw them last too. I'd be a little hesitant to buy any I found now. I've heard that they can be weighed easily and most are probably returns at this point that someone has taken home, weighed, and brought back. I know that won't impact chances of hitting a Juan Soto or Ronald Acuna base and/or pink refractor, but probably won't be any hits in them.

    Super Bowl

    Anyone want to put a card wager on the super bowl? I’m picking the Patriots if someone wants to take the rams
  8. No. Saw some hangers right around Christmas but they were gone within a week
  9. How are "reprint" cards being sold on eBay not illegal? For instance, these Trout reprints: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2011-Topps-Update-US175-Diamond-Mike-Trout-Rookie-Reprint-MINT-Angels/254094350697?hash=item3b29341969:g:MGkAAOSwxMRbjIb0:rk:1:pf:0 They are exact replicas of Topps cards and use MLB logos without consent. Thoughts?
  10. With Edgar Martinez making the hall of fame, MLB tweeted this gem: Two questions: 1. Do you think he belongs there? 2. MLB, what about Frank Thomas!?
  11. I'll kick it off with my Mookie Betts stash. I'm really hoping for another big year in 2019 to see if the gap can close between his 2014 Topps Update and Mike Trout's 2011 Topps Update. Not likely to ever eclipse them, but less than $100/ea means they have room to run in my opinion. Onto the cards...
  12. Still nothing around here. Anyone had any luck finding hangers or boxes?

    This album showcases my collection of the best defending 3B in the league!

    Sold / Traded

    THESE ARE ALREADY GONE This album is dedicated to all the cards I've sold or traded. Sale prices and trade details are listed in the description of each card. Hopefully this won't turn into a "look what this moron sold these cards for" album.
  17. Rumor has it the Phillies are now the favorites to land Bryce Harper. https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-rumors-phillies-clear-cut-favorite-to-sign-bryce-harper-after-las-vegas-meeting/ With that being said, do you think they continue to go after Machado and/or Trout next year?
  18. Has anyone found any in Target lately, or has this stuff dried up? Post up your best hit from the product! Here's mine:
  19. So, with the game set, who do you think wins it? Will it be Brady and the Pats, or Mahomes and the Chiefs? On a side note, 8 straight AFC Championship games is bananas!
