2007 Heritage Video Pack Rip

I figured I’d take the “Repack Experiment” title off these videos, since I know everything’s working OK with the videos (and they’re being surprisingly well received). This video shows off my cards from the 70s, as well as another pack rip.There were a…

WV Cards Videos Present: Repack Experiment (part 3)

For those of you that were wondering, yes, most of my shirts have Jimi Hendrix on them. All of my other ones have the Beatles on them (except for one shirt with Miles Davis on it).

WV Cards Videos Present: Repack Experiment (part 2)

Since everyone that saw my last pack break video (all three of you!) liked it so much, I thought I’d do another one. Here are things to remember when you watch my videos (at least, until I get used to doing this):1.) I’m really shy, and I get nervous w…

Flea Market Finds

As some of you know, I just got my driver’s license this past Wednesday. To celebrate, I went on a road trip to visit my cousins in Caldwell, Ohio. On the way home Saturday, I decided to stop at the Rink’s flea market in nearby Marietta. There were a c…

Pack Rip: 2009 Topps Series 2 Rack Pack

I was gonna do a video of this pack rip, but I had problems the last time I tried uploading a video to Youtube. If I can figure out what happened soon, I’ll video the next pack break I do. On to the cards:Top half:386 Jonathan Papelbon340 Joe Mauer354 …

A sad day for my collection…

Lately, the card selection at my local Walmart has been really slim. Many of you might remember me saying that they never got any 2009s in when the rest of the stores got them. I went to Walmart yesterday to see if they got any in yet.They don’t have a…

Sweet Redemption

There STILL aren’t any 2009s at my local Walmart. I wanted to bust some wax, though, so I bought a box of 2008 Topps Heritage High Number. I think I chose wisely.

Still Open For Business

I really need to get my butt in gear and start posting more on here. While I think of my next post, here’s some football insanity I found recently.Makes me laugh every time I watch it.

Three Pack Break: 2008 UD Timeline

I had to go to the DMV in Moundsville about a week ago, and while I was in the area I decided to stop by the huge Walmart near there. They had some 2009s, which I bought (and forgot to post about… oops). When I got off work today, I stopped by the Wa…

The Dinged Corners Questionnaire

Questions – 1-If I didn’t collect baseball cards, I’d collect MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS.Some might say I have a pretty good collection already. I have three electric guitars, an acoustic guitar, and an electric bass. I’d like to add a Strat-type electric gui…

So this is Christmas…

I know I’ve been gone a while. I haven’t been in the mood to post anything for the past few days. (The flu and a broken heart will do that to ya.) Things are finally starting to look again, though, and just in time for Christmas!I want to thank the fin…

Blog Bat Around: What kind of collector am I?

After 20 years of collecting and 30 seconds of thought, I think I’ve decided what kind of collector I am.I’m a packrat. I’ll collect anything. I can buy Tristar boxes and be happy with what I got. Here’s my main collection. There’s almost 28,000 cards …

The best laid plans…

Due to the downturn in the economy, the post office in my town was forced to cut its hours. When I got up this morning, though, I wasn’t worried about any of that. All I wanted to do was to lay in bed, go to the bank and post office, and get stuff read…

Sorry, folks…

It’s been a while since I’ve done anything on here. I also have a couple packages that I’ve been meaning to mail out, but I’ve been preoccupied. I feel kinda bad about ignoring this place, but it’s been for a good reason. I’d like to share my latest fi…

An election-related card story…

As many of you know, Topps and Upper Deck have released cards of the different presidential candidates. I went after the 2008 Topps Series 1 set really hard, and I got a bunch of doubles, including two McCains. I went after the ’08 Upper Deck Series On…
