Thrift Treasures 73: What’s up, Buster! Early Posey release found at thrift.

on October 15th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

I made a short trip to the thrift store today with my son and lookie here … a baggie of cards worth buying. They had about a dozen bags, 10 of which were filled with 1988 Topps cards, one that had a stack of Pro Set hockey from like 1991-92, and then this one, which […]

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 […]

The ONLY Johan Santana rookie that matters …

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 […]

An Auto A Day … #2

on August 20th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

Tom Candiotti never was overpowering, but no matter how you look at it, it takes a special skill set to spend more than 15 years in the Major Leagues. A career that long doesn’t happen by accident.  Candiotti dazzled batters at times with his knuckleball during the 1980s and the 1990s as he spent time […]

An auto a day … #1

on August 19th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

So, a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the National Sports Collector’s Convention in Cleveland.  It was my second such event.  During my multiple days in Cleveland I happened upon a dealer who had dozens — literally dozens — of three-row boxes in which every card was priced at $1.  And among […]

I recently paid $8 for a Barry Zito rookie card and it wasn’t autographed …

on August 18th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

I must be crazy, right?  Who pays $8 for a Barry Zito rookie card, especially one that doesn’t bear his signature? Well, when the serial number on the card matches his jersey number, sometimes collectors do funny things. Barry Zito used to be a big deal.  He was a big-time pitcher for the Oakland A’s […]

Just when I vowed to stop buying blasters …

on August 8th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

So, upon returning from The National this week I basically told myself to stop buying blasters. Many of them could be found discounted at crazy levels at the show in Cleveland. Besides the odds are way longer than what they are in hobby. Well, as I was out buying necessities for the house I found […]

So, my intention was to hit you guys next with another short post about items that I found at The National.  But on this day, I actually have a fresh Thrift Treasures post based on items that I found just a few hours ago. I made the rounds to one of the local thrift stores […]

Thrift Treasures 70: `National’ finds, Bargain Bin — Any item a buck #1

on August 5th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

Well, I just got back from The National Sports Collectors Convention, which was held in Cleveland this weekend.  I was working for Beckett during the event, so I did not get a chance to sift through all of the bargains that were out there to be had.  It should be noted that I did notice […]

Thrift Treasures 69: Mem cards, a Lemieux rarity and a box of rocks

on June 20th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

Usually when I find card at thrift stores, they are usually tattered cards from the 80s and 90s that mildly entertain me as I wait to stumble across my next true treasure.  Well, Friday brought me some good fortune in a form that I’d never seen before at a thrift store. Among the toys stuff […]

Baseball card cameo: “Stand by Me”

on June 11th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

Baseball card appearances in movies always intrigue me. So it came as a surprise to me today when I discovered that the 1986 flick “Stand by Me,” which I’d watched before but not in many years, actually shows for a brief second a 1958 Topps All Star Mickey Mantle and a 1960 Topps Yogi Berra. […]

TTM Return: Yu Darvish (and more)

on May 12th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

So, about a month ago I quietly sent out a handful or TTM requests to some players who admittedly were longshots.  These were guys I did not expect to get ANYTHING in return, but figured it was worth a shot since it was pretty early in the year. Well, the first one returned, and lo […]

Thrift Treasures 68: 2014 Tri-Star San Francisco show bargain bin hauls

on May 1st, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

So last week I attended the annual Tri-Star show in San Francisco, and this time I went with a co-worker, whom I recently discovered was a card collector.  I was a bit uncertain of going with the guy — because I tend to go spend a lot of time going through stuff most people don’t […]

Thrift Treasures 67: 1967 Coke, Sprite and Tab Hank Aaron and Willie Mays Bottle Caps Hank

on April 6th, 2014 by Cardboard Icons

The family and I went to the Alameda Antique Faire today, the self-billed largest antique Faire in all of California. Not sure if this is true or not, but I will say it was the largest re-sell atmosphere I’ve ever been in. That said, there were some sports items tucked in here and there, but […]
