Spring Break Pack Bust: 2016 Stadium Club

Well, since our quest to find a card shop in Hot Springs went belly-up, I ran into the Walmart here and snagged a pack of 2016 Stadium Club. I believe this is the first time I’ve even see these. They are certainly a throwback to the glory days of Stadi…

Feeling like Yukon Cornelius… NOTHIN…

Welp, we headed out today and too a 2-mile hike through some trails at Lake Catherine, near Hot Springs, AR. Had a good time, and we older folks are feeling it for sure. Haha! After that, we headed out in search of the card shops…Alas, “Legends and H…

Spring Break for Tribecards!

One of the biggest advantages of being in education: Spring Break. My family and I are enjoying a few days together in Hot Springs, Arkansas during our Spring Break. Of course, I will be on the hunt for some cardboard goodness to bust open and share wi…

2008 UD Premier Stitches: Pronk and V-Mart In Stitches

For some reason I have yet to dare examine, I stopped putting my cards into binders in 2008. I have no logical explanation that comes to mind. I just quit putting cards I received into their corresponding binders that year. Instead, I now have boxes la…

1960 Nu-Card Baseball Hi-Lites (Revisited)

I have four 1960 Nu-Card Baseball Hi-Lites cards in my collection. They are about the size of postcards and a decent card stock. I actually did a post about these back in 2009 (link at bottom of this post) which was then cross-posted to “Things Done Wi…

Accidental Bobble Head Collection

It happens to each of us at one point or another in our collecting: someone sends you something that is related to the team/player you collect but isn’t a card. I have lots of things that are Indians related yet have nothing to do with my Tribecards co…

1976: Bad Year To Be A Brohamer Card

In 1976, I was 7 years old and deep in the throws of my formative collecting years. I’ve told stories here before about collecting cards and the awful things my friends and I would do to cards in those days. Now, before you start to think back TOO far,…

1974 Capital Publishing

I’ve tried to rack my brain and remember just how I managed to acquire these two cards from the 1974 Capital Publishing collection. Try as I might, I just can’t recall. Generally, that means one of two things: 1) I bought them on eBay (probably as part…

Feeding the Cardboard Addiction

I left the office and headed out to lunch. I stopped at Walmart because I wanted to see if they had the charging/headphone adapter for my iPhone 7. They did not. Our Walmart has a Subway in it, so I figured I would just eat there since I was already in…

A slew of cool Indians cards from @GypsyOak! Thanks to @MDAubrey!

A friend of mine many of you may know, Mark Aubrey (of Mark’s Ephemera fame), shared some very cool pieces of art on Twitter with me. I suppose the proper vernacular would be something akin to: @mdaubrey tagged me in a Tweet showcasing s…

I bought a #Repack. Let’s do a #ShowYourHits post

I spent the day with my wife and daughter, which means we went shopping. While in target, I decided to grab a repack box that had an auto’d card and four packs of wax.I managed to snag a 2016 Bowman Michael Brantley, so score one for the Tribe fans! Wa…

Tribecards Announces Retirement: The End of Tribecards
