yeah i read about them from time to time but never really checked it out in person. right now there are two things on the front page that seem really cool, the RAIDERFEST and Dee Gordon in person. Might have to take a field trip to city of Industry for that.

spent $30 on a bunch of random 90's nba cards. got some cool jordans and a kobe rookie. also bought a binder off a dude who apparently has a thing for corey maggette. each 9 pocket page has the most random assortment of players. got a sick brevin knight card though

I went to a local show this weekend and bought a bunch more of the 1986 Fleer NBA set. Only need about 70 for completion....including Jordan :(

Apparently John Gruden was there, and I walked past him thinking how much he looked like Gruden lol

Lol, Leaf were so hasty in getting the first 2012 certified card for Andrew Luck out there that they ended up selling cards that were for "ANDERW LUCK" and listed his "HIGHT". They pulled them after 30 or so had been sold but they'll honor those sales and the misprint will be numbered to however many were sold. Which just pumps up their resale value really.

So Skip Schumaker is legit pissed Topps made a rare, super short print version of his 2012 card with the squirrel on it. He actually has a normal card in the set, this is just sort of a gimmick card that is tough to find and is pretty hot (600+ on ebay already). These cards just came out this week so its a bit of an inflated price, but still there's a lot of buzz about the squirrel.

Schumaker calls squirrel card 'ridiculous'

"It's not disappointing, it's just ridiculous," Schumaker said. "I don't know how else to explain it other than that. You expect to have some sort of action shot or something but it's like a mascot card to me.

$600? wtf. I was hoping I could get one for $5, better let this shit settle down. .

Also Marigold, I have a 2011 Brandon Belt first year Bowman Chrome and a 2010 Bowman Chrome Buster Posey purple refractor "rookie card" if you wanna trade for any Cardinals cards.

I feel ilke we could have a kind of awesome "trading session" via tinychat or something, post cards in here that are available for trade/post what we're interested in trading for, then set up a time a few days later where everyone goes at it like a pack of wolves

maybe that's kinda retarded but maybe it would be kinda fun, i dunno

we could post our players/teams here, then go from there. then also i think some of us could post decent "hits" that we don't want to keep? also for set builders we could post the holes and dupes.

Yeah, Chicago has, like, one hobby shop in the whole city and it's nowhere near me, so I'll probably just end up buying a bunch of packs on my next trip to Target.

Which brings me to another question, can people really do that thing where they "feel" unopened packs and can tell which ones have hits? And if so, should I just avoid the loose packs at Target since they've been searched and just go for the $20 10-pack box?
