Rookie Card Upgrade 5: 1970 Topps Thurman Munson

on February 24th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

About a decade ago when I started to seriously collect vintage rookie cards condition was not a priority for me.  Rounded corners, creases, ink, etc.  None of it really mattered.  All it did was make the card more affordable for me. Truthfully, I still operate this way in some cases.  But I also like to […]

2015 Topps Macklemore card is my new “Wallet Card”

on February 19th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

When 2015 Topps was released there was one insert card I had to own. Yes, it was a “First Pitch” insert card. But it was not “The Dude.” And it wasn’t 50 Cent. It was non other than Seattle rapper Macklemore. Why? Um … Have you not been reading Thrift Treasures? Macklemore famously sang about […]

Thrift Treasure 81: MLB Showdown ASG finds a home

on February 18th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

I’ll say this up front, I am not a big card game guy.  I never got into Magic.  I never played Pokemon. I don’t hate it.  I don’t dislike people who play such games.  I, personally, have never felt the need to sit down and learn or play those games.  They are games of strategy; […]

Raise your hand of you have these bad boys out during Valentines Day during the early 1990s! I sure as hell did. And honestly, I wish a kept a box of them for myself. I have memories of tearing these perforated cards off the sheet and taping them to boxes of Sweethearts. Even the girls […]

Debate: Crack and submit or leave as is

on February 8th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

So, I threw this out on Twitter earlier but figured I’d add it here as well. Curious how you’d proceed with this. At this moment I am uncertain what I will do. Here’s the issue: I own a T206 Roger Bresnahan card that is graded a GAI 1, Poor. Bresnahan is a Hall of Famer. […]

To say that this blog is what it was six years ago when I started it would simply be untrue.  The industry has changed. My life has changed.  I was married for a mere three years when I started this thing, and I didn’t have any kids.  I now have two kids who are 6 […]

My wife and I made our annual end-of-the-year trip to a local city that has plenty of antique and thrift stores.  I know, it’s like we’re old, right? I might be 34, but I might as well be 64. I mean I like antiquing and thrifting, and I watch baseball and not the more popular […]

Rookie Card Upgrade: 1966 Topps Jim Palmer

on January 14th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

Jim Palmer is kind of one of those Hall of Fame players who easily gets overlooked. Palmer also gets passed over quite a bit in the hobby. I once purchased this raggedy 1966 Topps Jim Palmer rookie for under $10, a place holder in my collection: It served its purpose. But I always knew that […]

Thrift Treasures 78: What’s in the Box? What’s in the Box?!

on January 10th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

For as long as I can remember, card storage has always been a fluid topic among collectors.  Some prefer the white cardboard boxes sold at stores.  Others prefer actual shoe boxes, just as kids used back in the day. And yet other find interesting ways to store their collectibles. In the late 1980s and early […]

I’ve come a long when in terms of quality for my Johnny Bench rookie. The first Bench rookie I acquired was a raw version that had ink on the back. I kept that for about a year and a half before I found a good deal on the SGC 60 (equivalent to a PSA 5/BVG […]

on January 7th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

Funny story.  When I was 10 I was on my way to Little League game and on the ground near the field was a 1990 Score Ricky Jordan card.  It was a third-year card for the Phillies first base prospect, but at the time I was playing for my Little League’s Phillies’ team, so I […]

Thrift Treasures 76: A sealed 84 Donruss set for price of a blaster

on December 15th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

This was not your typical Thursday in California. The San Francisco Bay Area was facing its “worst storm in five years,” which received a ton of hype and of course failed to live up to the billing.  It was windy, the rain was continuous and streets were flooding.  But it’s not like homes were being […]

Thrift Treasures 75: 100 parallels for $2.99

on December 9th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

One thing I really enjoyed about the Ultra brand produced by Fleer during the 1990s and 2000 was the parallel cards. I really enjoyed the gold and platinum parallels of the base set. If for no other reason that some of them in the early 2000 were die-cut. So, imagine my delight when I walked […]

on December 8th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

So late last week I hit a thrift store on the way home and in the “collectible” section behind the show case near the register were three white boxes that all card collectors could spot from across the room.  One was small, like a 200-count box, but the others were 400-count and 550-count.

Small bit of Topps advertising “hidden” on 1953 card

on November 26th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

I was just looking at this Clem Labine card from the 1953 Topps set, which is perhaps one of the nicest sets ever produced. I’ve probably looked at this card a hundred times. But today I saw something that I had missed every other time. Look over Labine’s right shoulder. Look at the advertising panel […]
