on January 31st, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

A few weeks ago Topps had a sale on their 2014 Topps Mini boxes. They sold three-box bundles for $49.99. Essentially it was a buy one get two free sale. Needless to say I snagged a bundle. Here are the color and hit recaps from each box. Black parallels are /5, pink are /25 and […]

So …. “Thrift Treasures” has been nominated for an award

on January 21st, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

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 […]

Thrift Treasures 79: Signed Vintage Minor League Baseball (15 sigs on 43-year-old ball)

on January 19th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

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 […]

Rookie Card Upgrade: 1968 Topps Johnny Bench

on January 9th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

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 […]

Thrift Treasures 77: The ‘Special’ and ‘Young’ editon

on January 7th, 2015 by Cardboard Icons

So there I was minding my own business in the toy aisle of one of the local thrift shops when I saw dozens of little bags filled with sports cards, some of which were actually in Card Saver II’s.  What’s that? Google it, kid. Anyway, I was intrigued. I picked up each bag and checked […]

Rediscovering the “Wallet Card” idea …

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 […]

Thrift Treasures 74: Oldies but Goodies; shiny ones too.

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. On the […]

1973 Topps Lou Gehrig spotted in “The Goonies”

on December 1st, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

This is probably old news to many of you — or maybe not — but there is a baseball card shown in the 1985 flick, “The Goonies.” In the movie there is a story about a guy who went missing in 1934 while hunting for treasure underground. The group of kids who star in the […]

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 […]

2000 Fleer GOTG Baseball Autos: The Final Four

on November 13th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

When I opened my first pack of 2000 Fleer Greats of the Game baseball some 14 years ago, I was immediately drawn to the set.  The simplistic design and checklist appealed to me.  And of course there was the fact that I pulled the Nolan Ryan autograph on that first day, just as I wished. […]

19 Days in Postal Purgatory — story of Johnny Bench SP Auto

on October 2nd, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

So, it’s no secret at this point — I am working feverishly on the 2000 Greats of the Game baseball autographs set. This set, as I have said here and in one of my recent Beckett Baseball Monthly columns, is easily one of the most iconic sets of our hobby’s history. It is one of […]

Thrift Treasures 72: Three Baggies Of Cards, $1.99 each. I spy vintage!

on September 13th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

I recently heard from one of my Twitter followers that he enjoys the Thrift Treasures series, but wished they were more frequent.  Believe me, me too.  My time these days, however, is occupied by work and my kids.  It’s easy for me to stop into a store and buy something, which I frequently do, but […]

on September 6th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

A few weeks ago I wrote about a 2000 SP Authentic Barry Zito rookie card that bore the serial number of Zito’s jersey. Well, that’s not the only former Cy Young Award Winner whose serial numbered rookie card that I own with the number matching the jersey. I present the 2000 Finest Refractor Johan Santana […]

An Auto A Day … #6

on August 24th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

I’ve got a thing for former players who turn manager/coach. This is not a new trend, but it’s interesting for me to see this these days as I clearly remember some of the players-turned managers/coaches when they first came into Major League Baseball. Such is the case with Torey Lovullo. He was somewhat of a […]

An Auto A Day … #5

on August 23rd, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

Here’s another solid Major Leaguer who used his skill set on the field to help him get a job in the dugout. Brad Ausmus, a three-time Gold Glove winner and an all-star, spent 18 seasons as a Big League catcher. His career started in 1993 with the San Diego Padres and ran through 2010 with […]

An Auto A Day … #4

on August 22nd, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

If you were a baseball fan after the strike of 1994, you surely remember that the Montreal Expos (which later became the Washington Nationals) were one of the better teams in baseball at the time, and in 1995 they had a hell of a left handed phenom on their hands by the name of Carlos […]

An Auto A Day … #3

on August 21st, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

They always say that catchers make the best managerial candidates. Mike Matheny, a four-time Gold Glove catcher who spent 13 years as a Major Leaguer, essentially went straight from behind the plate to being on the top step of the dug out calling the shots.  His career was cut short as a member of the […]
