Bowman Chrome?

Don't get me wrong I love Bowman Chrome, but the 200$ price tag is truly ridiculos, considering every possible good strasburg has been pulled (1/1 red strasburg)and countless /250. I am Joe Collecter made a good point that Allen & Ginter & Bowman won't get back to normal pricing for another 6 months!! These crazy prices need to stop & I feel bad for any poor sap who bought bowman expecting a Strasburg and failing.

Some great Suggestions

Well The contest is going to be a week from today July 5th. On the day of the contest I will be asking whats your favorite player of all time. All you need to do is tell me the sport his/her number and why simple as that. Oh and anyone willing to post this contest on their blog will get a bonus just let me know. I also want to thank Dan from

Contest Ideas?

Well I've been thinking that I need to make another free contest, to make up for the last one I made way back when. I think that maybe I'll buy an allen & ginter box and the 1st place winner will get that and the 2nd and 3rd will get and autograph. The only problem is I don't know how many people actually pay attention to this blog anymore so I'm not sure if you guys want to do that. But if you have any ideas on how to go about this contest just make a comment on this post telling me what I should do or if I should change the prizes or not. Hopefully you guys will come out of your caves and humor me with this contest.

Allen & Ginter Obsession?

Always when its this time of year I wonder why we are all so obsessed with Allen & Ginter. Most years we get essentially the same set as the last yet so many people purchases cases of Ginter. Don't get me wrong I love Ginter, but I can't help to wonder why if its usually the same stuff (or very similar) every year. My only explanation is the resale value of the hits, but on the other hand many hits are very cheap (the many many jersey cards). Another reason maybe the red ink autographs or the non-baseball players autographs (which also is criticized by many). I may never know the answer, but I do know I will definitely be buying a box in three days.

OK Now I'm officially back

So Apparently our other Admin didn't come through and offer his support on this blog so we are parting ways. I assumed he was maintaining the blog, but fear not as I will be keeping up with the blog as of now. I'm coming back to collecting after about 10 months so I will be a little rusty, I'm trying to sell off most of my collection to make room for some new stuff. Im selling my longoria/soto (ebay) 1/25 dual auto (pictured above) and my matthew stafford chrome auto. Anybody can feel free to make an offer on anything thats not on ebay btw my ebay account is barginbaby2009 (I didnt make it).
